yellow is the rpm monitor, black is the ground, and red is power. If you want to get rid of anything, get rid of the yellow.

Take a paper clip and stick it in the black (blue) connector.... still holding on to that one, take another paperclip and with your other hand, test the other connectors... the one that shocks you is the positave.

 

 

Or, if you don't want that.. cause it hurts, I'd suggest getting a volt/ohm meter, and testing it out...

 

You black will 99.99% of the time be ground.

And from what you have listed, I believe the yellow is RPM and the red is hot.

 

But I'd definatly test it out... they've been known to be switched from PS to PS...

I'm talking about the 3 fan wires... Like the one the tt smart case fan have. If you notice, the tt smart case fan has the rpm monitoring wire sepereate from the power and ground... From my other two fans that i have, the yellow is still the rpm monitor...

For the fan 3 pin connector:

 

red is power

black is ground

yellow is RPM

 

For the P/S cable (4pin)

 

Yellow is power

Black is ground

 

 

So if you want to plug a 3 pin fan on the P/S (4pins) without adaptor, you have to tie the red-fan-cable with the yellow-P/S-cable and tie the black-fan-cable with the black-P/S-cable.

Don not use the other cable.

 

This is what I did
