Hi ive just recieved my Fox-1 System blower PCI for my Asus P5N-E SLI motherboard. Ive screwed it in just above my sound card and below my gfx card, all i need to do now is connect the molex connector, but i see nowhere for it!
Other info if required: Atrix 650watt PSU Apevia X-Cruiser Case
These images are from google, as such the motherboard has different components, but the same model
The fan: click here The Motherboard: click here The Molex has two black and red cables, and appears to be a double sided 4 way end.
Please help me locate where i connect the molex connector, and if i dont have one how do i get one, or convert an existing (if any) into more?
Im not sure how to get it to my PSU, the pc is new custom built (not by myself obviously) I can see 3 maybe 4 largish blue cables (the material is like that of a shoe lace!), so all these blue cables go to my PSU and there is no room for anything else to feed through. These blue cables go through the front of the PSU.
Quite often there will be a spare molex connector from the PSU as sil_ver has suggested. If they're all in use then connect your new fan and connect whatever that was originally connected to through it. However there should be 6 molex connectors with that PSU but the plugs may be coloured black rather than white.
You will need to get inside your PC to access the PSU cables.(The PSU will be fitted inside, the only external connection will be the mains socket) The one you need to look for will have an identical Molex connector to your fan but will be female. You should be able to buy a splitter from any PC store
i think i get you know, just followed some of the cables and noticed both my case fans have the same connector, and they are doubled up by a splitter from what i can see. There are some of the molex things sitting in the case doing nothing, i wonder if i try connecting it to one of these it may work.
