CM COSMOS 120mm Case fans!!!

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

i recently purchased the CM Cosmos an just wanna know somethin about the case fans.

i've got the case fans connected to my PSU, but really i wanted to connect it to the motherboard ASUS P5K-E mobo but i cant becuase the case fans have 4pin molex connecters.

i was wondering if i purchase the 4pin to 3pin adapters, and connect them on to the motherbaord, will these fans damage the mobo in any way?.

i think there likes 3 chasis fan connecters on the mobo itself.

many thanks guys.

It is possible, but I have heard that some coolers won't work with this.

Although, it's a standard cooler, so I guess it would work.

Example of cable:

United States. Got my case from Directron.com.

Seems like you got different fans from some of us. Because you say you want the 3 pin fan connections because your fan only has 4 pin molex connections.

These fans that came with mine are native 3 pin connections, and the adapter connects to it for a molex connection. So your fans seem to be somewhat different.

im from the uk, i wonder why they decided to supply different case fans here. i suppose i can always just purchase the 4pin molex to 3pin adapters online no big deal.

but thanks guys for the help.
