Notes

  • Colors may change.
  • Chassis and CPU fans may use either 3-pin or 4-pin power connectors. 3-pin connectors are usually used for the smaller chassis fans with lower power consumption. 4-pin connectors are usually used by CPU fans with higher power consumption. Fans and on-board fan headers are backwards compatible. Proper fan connector placement is shown in the figures below:
    • Fan has a 3-pin power connector; desktop board has a 4-pin fan header:

      Note: when using a 3-pin power connector with a 4-pin fan header, the fan will always be on; there is no fan control.
