Out of the fan case itself, pops two cables. One cable has a switch that has H M L on it, for high, medium and low. This is the speed control.
The other cable has a three pin female connector, into which a 3 wire male plug containing three wires arrive already plugged in. A red and black wire for power, and a white wire for control. The red and black wires are already built into a 4 prong Molex connector (two fo the prongs are unconnected) that has both male and female on different sides, so that you can plug the male side of the Molex into a power supply connector, and then plug another device into the female side of the Molex. The white wire is terminated by another three wire connector, with two of the positions left unconnected.
If you have a motherboard that has the three wire connector, that provides both control and power, you can pull the male plug that has the three colored wires out of the end of the cable coupled to the fan (lift the tab on the side and then slide the plug out) and pop the plug at the end of the clear wires onto your motherboard and let the motherboard do the speed control for you. Try this arrangement first: if the fan spins when you turn it on, you're fine.Read more ›
Antec to the rescue.
This fan (TriCool 92mm) ships with a 3-pin connector and a Y-adapter. The Y-Adapter allows you to get power from a large power-supply socket, like the kind a hard drive uses. The other branch of the adapter goes to a 3-pin connector with a white fan sense pin.
To use this fan to replace the Dell Dimension 8100 fan:
* Disconnect the existing CPU fan from the motherboard, noting which pin is connected to the white wire. This is the fan sense pin.
* Using pliers, carefully remove the plastic sheath on the motherboard fan pins.
* Using the Y-adapter, connect the Antec to a power supply socket.
* Using other branch of the cable, with the white wire to a 3-pin plug, connect ONLY the wired pin to the fan sense pin on the motherboard.
The Dell will then detect the new fan and bypass the warning message.
As a bonus, this fan moves more air on its high setting than the stock fan did.
I thought I would enjoy the 3-spd switch and just up the speed when playing games and leave it low for day to day computer use. Unfortunately, I had no easy way of mounting the switch so I could access it from the outside of the case. It didn't matter too much though, since even on its highest speed setting (which I leave it on) you can barely hear it.
The results were immediate and impressive, with double digit (10-14 degress C) drops for case/cpu/video card temps at full load. The switch did nothing for me, but the fan is highly recommended.

What do you say about a fan? It blows air. Or sucks it, depending on orientation. Having the 3 position speed switch is nice if your MoBo doesn't adjust speed automatically. Read morePublished 1 month ago by K. McDonnell
