Question about HP HEATSINK FOR WORKSTATION XW8400 XW6400 CPU Heatsink
5pin, not pn
hp does not publish this.
the expect you to just by HP parts on the parts-surfer page.
and it plug right in and works
most machines generic, like say a ASUS mobo'
have 3 pins, ground, power and TACHMETER pin.(RPM)
why not asks on the HP forum and not here,
other ask this before, on 1000s of examples same.
in your case its a thermister there not RPM
so is custom to HP. see? no thermisters are the same.
truely and endless topic on that fan and no facts or data.
but one wire is 12vdc aother is ground.
the other 2 are thermstor. if you skip this the BIOS gets upset.
PTC or NTC, not even known.
Id try to move the thermistor from old to new fan.

If you take a closer look to that connector you will see that there is a short piece of cable running from pin 1 to 5. So if you have a four pin connector all you have to do is replicate the connection and you are done.

On most motherboards the front panel connections are printed in the connectors on the motherboard. When you connect the various LED indicators and when you power up and they do not light up then just switch the connectors around, because they are are polarized.
You can go to the motherboard WEB site (ASUS) to download a manual, the manufacturer and model number is printed on the motherboard.
