I have an Intel Processor Fan that I do not use anymore.
It used to be used for my computer, but now its just lieing around.
I would like to use this fan without a computer.
On the fan it says
I cut and stripped the fan wiring and it has 4 cables coming out of the fan.
A blue cable. A yellow cable. A green cable. A black cable.
Please help me find out how to wire this into a battery so that I can power it.

Try newegg.com, tigerdirect.com,directron.com,geeks.com. You want a Core 2 Duo cpu fan oem (socket LGA 775). Should be able to get one around 10 dollars or so plus shipping. You can pay more for a bigger fan but you really would not need it. OEM will be just fine.
The overheating problem (ie. thermal shutdown) is most likely caused by a faulty CPU fan or dust clogging the CPU fan and heatsink.
Check the BIOS CPU fan speed could be set too low, check the fan speed/temperature setting.
If this problem is not fixed, then the CPU will eventually fail.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not then replace the faulty fan.
If the fan and heatsink are cligged with dust, loosen and remove the dust and use a can of compress air to blow away the dust.
..plz do check the following as in order:.. the Hardware part:.. 3) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..change if required..
dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause jam/short
circuitry/excess resistance n many more..resulting an increase in heat..
open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink
Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market)
between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it
tightly in position..
8)on main/mother board..see with a debug
card for mb error..may bshort..look for defective capacitors(esp
above1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit
lie around atx connector..the crystal clock generator (if cpu isn't
heating up).. if u r not a professional, always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....
on mb with intel 865 the bigest CPU is pentium 4 @ 3GHz. socket 478
however your MB might require to update microcode for the new CPU.
one more thing: this chipset Intel 865 is obsolete, and intel does not manufacture this cpu type anymore.
If you're talking about the fan on your processor that is very noisy and you already clean it and still the same you will need to replace the fan already because sooner or later that fan will not function properly anymore and it will cause your system some overheating....
Don't forget to rate the solution FIXYA thank you...........
OC failure = over clocking failure. Make sure the CPU fan is clean, free from dirt & dust. Check CPU fan plug is connected correctly. If the CPU fan still stops after a few seconds replace the CPU fan.
It's harder to find just a fan to fit your heatsink, which sits on your CPU. It is easier to find a new heatsink \ fan combo for your Intel. Use your manual to find what Intel chip is on your board. Use that information & search google for a heatsink & fan combo. Pay close attention to how your current heatsink is mounted to the Gigabyte board.
