10V molex mod?


Recommended Posts

I was thinking that it would be nice if I could run my fan at 10V. If I ran the fan's ground to the -5V line and the other on a 5V line, would this do it? Would it be more dangerous than running it at 7V (12V, ground to 5V)? Thanks for the input.

Never attempt to use either the -5V or the -12V outputs of your PSU as a ground. :shake:

These are very weak rails & you may kill your PSU & possibly more.

Wow, a :shake: ! Glad I asked before trying! I got the 5V, 7V mods; using 7V now and loving it (made a little molex adaptor - my first power mod!). I was just hoping for a mod to get like 9V or 10V. The noise of a 12V Tornado is unbearable, but 7V is "too" quiet, so I'd like to give it a bit more juice.
