Where to find a 70MM fan for my eMachines?

I need a 70MM fan with 4 wires (red, yellow, blue and black) and a connector with 4 openings. I've looked EVERYWHERE but can't find one except on the eMachines website, but it's out of stock til March. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

(I've found some with 3 wires or 3 openings on the connector)

Do you have to use all of the wires? 70 mm fans seem to be very common on

I need its datasheet to connect it to microcontroller and give pwm pulses...can anyone give it or tell me how to connect its four terminals

the four wires will be 0V, 12V (from supply), and a sensor to sense speed (I think this is a voltage o/p proportional to the fan speed). The fourth wire with be the PWM signal to control the fan speed (input to the fan)

Can some tell me the details of four wires connected to DV12038B48H server Fan?

four wire fans almost always have the same connections. There should be a black wire on the connector at one end. This the 0V The next one is called 'sense' and is a signal giving the fan speed. The third one, often with a red wire, is the +V line (?48V in this case I think). The fourth one controls the fan speed and carries a signal from the computer to the fan causes it rotate at a given speed.
ok in the pictures of this fan I have found the wires are not the same colours as I have mentioned above. I think the ordering is the same though - but I am less certain now. blue is speed sense, yellow is +48V red is speed control ??. You can check this by (carefully !) measuring the voltage between black and yellow wires; if it 48V then my pin assignments are more than likely correct. Or if you have your motherboard manual the pin assignment for the fan's connector should be in that.
The reason for this pin assignment is so that you can use a 4 pin fan (often 12V) with a three pin power connector: the speed control is simply not connected.

Usually the red is +12 volts DC, the black is ground, the yellow is the tach sensor, and the blue is speed control. The fan will run at full speed off the red and black. The yellow and blue are of no use unless the motherboard is designed to use them.

The red is positve (+) 12 volts. The black is negative (-) ground. The yellow is sensor (RPM) and the blue is control (PWM). Don't use the yellow and blue. If it's going to run it will be off the black and red.

I broke my cooler :(

You can solder the two open ends of the wires/base together. Generally, it doesn't hurt at all to have the yellow wire not connected. As long as the fan is still running, you will be fine. The yellow wire gives information about the fan RPM. You just won't be alerted if the fan stops working.

I just bought an Evercool fan to replace the cpu fan in a Dell Dimension Desktop. However, I connected it to the motherboard and it is not working.

Dell used to be a real *****. The connector looks the same as a industry standard, the industry standard plug fits into the motherboard but they changed the freckin pinouts. The only reason they did this was to make your frustrated. If you want it done right you should build it yourself ;)

Take a look at your old fan are the wires colored? Red typically means voltage+ whereas black is ground. the third wire is information form the motherboard at what the fan should be running at. you are going to have to either take the wires out for the connector and switch them around or you can get one of these nifty things.

most fans come with that cable. double check the box.

How to run a CPU fan (12 V DC)[0.15 A] S8025M

The fan should have a red and black wire. You don't need the other one or two wires if there is (yellow/blue are for monitoring, if they are there).

The fan will take anywhere from 5V to 13V, so depending on how much noise you want you can change it.

As for the amperage, you want at least 1A. Most fans take 0.3A, but some powerful ones can take up to 0.6A. The quick easy route: Go with 12V and 1A., so 12W.

As for running them in parallel, sure you can. I've done it myself many times. Just match red with red and black with black, so that the endings are still just one black wire and one red wire. You can chain as many as you want, but add 1A for each fan.

Intel Cpu Fan ReWiring

Here is the pinout for the wiring:

Pin Name Color 1 GND black 2 +12VDC yellow 3 Sense green 4 Control blue

In case this doesn't show...Black is Ground and Yellow is +12VDC.

Not sure if it will work w/o a Sense (Green) and Control (Blue) line though.
