Had to replace a 12 year old Power supply today. The only match I find to the model number on my PS is a refurbished one for $180. The PC is not even worth that. But I do have another PS that will fit the case, it is from Raidmax RX-380k. The only problem is that I can not find a PS that has a P9 connector to attach to the motherboard to control the PS fan. It is a 3 prong connector on the MB. I have two 4 prong floppy connectors and only need one. Can I use the floppy connector?

What is happening is that after the PC shuts down, the fan stays running and the monitor says " It is now safe to shut down your PC".

Thanks in advance.

The important thing here is voltage. What voltage do the floppy connectors on the PSU give out, and what voltage does the fan need?
If you push too many volts to the fan than it was designed for you will burn it out.
