Re: XPS 8930 SE, Exhaust Fan and PSU Upgrade

@mfurr   Where are you plugging the bottom fan in?

You have multiple options;

You can us a fan splitter adapter, and plug all 3 fans into the TOP FAN header.

As an example  3-way fan splitter cable 

You can power directly from the PSU SATA cable with a SATA to 2 fan adapter.

As an example  SATA to 2 fan adapter 

You could also pick up PSU power as above but with a molex to 2 fan adapter.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I thought maybe there was a power point I was overlooking but I figured I would have to get a splitter of some type..  Thanks again.

@mfurr 

Pay attention to the orientation of you fan power cables when installing the front fans to avoid problems later. Note the position of the fan power wires in this photo; bringing the wires to 'front center' of the chassis. (click photo to embiggen)

@Dell630i :

That red color SATA cable for the ODD seems to be not plugged in correctly to the motherboard. Are you able to watch your DVDs on your pseudo 👽 ? 😂
