How to install a fan?

Post by Inoxidable » Sat Apr 05, 2014 12:07 pm

Greetings to all.

I've got a fan with the characteristics and the measures required by this box.



The problem is I do not know where it connects or where the fan should be connected to the motherboard.


I am interested in being able to install for the summer (too hot in Spain :lol: :lol: :lol: ) and the disc is always on.

Do any of you know where to connect the fan?

A greeting.

I guess you can just divaricate the 5 or 12 V for the disk. In that case the fan will always be running, of course.

The kernel has a 'Therm and Fan' module, which temperature controls a fan, but I think it needs a 3 wire fan. J8 might be place to connect the fan, in that case, but at least some resistors are lacking.
