careless223 Posted October 7, 2006 Share Posted October 7, 2006 A few days ago I tried to jumper the CPU fan cable on a old Dell mobo. I put it in a new case and no longer could use the stock fan nor did I need it. It shorted and fried the board rendering it useless. So I heard somewhere a while ago that fans connected directly to the motherboard have no negative end, they just connect to the ground. Is this true? If the above statement is true does Dell wire their boards differently to have the negative lead back on the board? Thanks all and peace to The Broken crew.
