I have just purchased a used Lian-Li PC65 case to build a new system. I already have another working system with the same case. Both cases are modded so that there are twin exhaust fans rather than the single fan which is standard on this model. Each of the fans on the new case have a single blue wire attached to a small three pin connector, in addition to the standard molex power connector. The fans on my other case do not have this. I assume that this is for speed control.
My question is will these fans work without connecting the control wire? I don't want or need the speed control.

Hi there,

Are you able to tell what make/model the fans are?

All fans I've come across so far are able to be plugged in without using the speed controller, but it wouldn't hurt to double check.

Thanks. I sent a request to Antec about this, which I am pleased to report they answered VERY promptly. It's not a controller, it's a monitor which can be plugged into the MB to report the fan speed. It's not necessary.
