Question about Computers & Internet
The power supply comes with a fan. Therefore I guess you need to replace a bad fan. Remove the power-supply case.
Note which direction the fan spins. There is an arrow on the plastic fan case. You will note that one side of the fan is open. Be sure to put the new fan so it faces the exactly the same way. Remove the screws holding the bad fan and cut the wires leaving enough room on them to solder on to the new fan.
Your replacement is usually a normal 80mm, 12 volt case fan that provides ventilation in most PC cases.
Connect the two wires to the new fan by soldering the red wire to the red wire and black to black. Use shrink tubing or tape to insulate the connections.
A second option is to replace the entire power supply with a new one (containing a new fan). Then there is no soldering involved. If you look carefully enough, you will find them cheaply on line.
Hope this helps. :)
