Is there some connector or way to connect the power supply fan to the Motherboard fan connector 3-pin socket so it's controlled by software according to ambient heat in the PC. I have the software and it's controlling the CPU and case fans fine but the power supply fan is noisy all the time. Thanks John

All of the power supply fans I've replaced were wired internally to the power supply. There were no connectors on the fan.

This is probably not a good idea - power supplies are designed to be constantly cooled. If you did manage to reconfigure the fan, you might find that it will be on much of the time, anyway.

Without looking at specs, I would guess that the mother board may not be designed to run a power supply fan.

If you fan is getting noisier over time, you may want to replace it.
