Nooby question with fan pins on Motherboard

Recommended Posts

hi,

 

got a noob question: Can you plug a case fan which has a 3 pin connection into a motherboard which has a 4 pin connection?

 

I've only ever had motherboards which have 3 pin fan connections, until i recently upgraded to a Rampage III Gene which all fan headers have 4 pins.

 

Cheers

See if your motherboard has a setting to tell it to use voltage based fan speed control rather than PWM control though, otherwise the fan would run at full speed all the time.
