    Hmmm... and here I thought that my grammar skills were more than adequate. If you'll scroll up a bit, you'll see that I stated the same thing and even recommended using a 3-pin to 4-pin converter to handle the power needs of the fans.

    Did I miss something?

    that's what I was trying to make clear, whether or not you should take a 3-4pin connector and use that instead of hooking the hsf to the mobo. As Wiggo said too.

    No I didn't. :confused:

    I only let the mobo monitor the fan.
    Probably more right than ya'd like right now I bet but powerin' fans off the mobo is a :no: in my books as if ya don't damage anything then ya goin' to cruel ya overclockin' capabilities somethin' cronic. :devil:
    Now where did I say to power then from the mobo? :?:

    I stated the problems caused by doin' so. :hammer:

    <small>where are we gettin' them from these days?</small> :cry:

    OH DAMN! My bad, I just got a closer look at that little smiley face. I guess I just read it wrong. It was late and stuff. Sorry Wiggo.

    I've had the exact thing happen to me before, my motherboard went, and so did my CPU fan, and because of that my CPU went too, I like to play around with wires an' stuff, so could you please tell me the pin layout to convert a 3-pin fan (Which just connects into the motherboard) to a 4-pin?

    I think I know how it's done, but I don't want to take ANY chances, not after last night's HSF change between my good copper based HSF to an AMD certified HSF (They're not the best things to use, esspecially with the rubbery heatsink on the bottom of them!).

    I have loads of wires and stuff in a bundle in the loft, so I have the tools to do it.

    ThanX
