I have an Apavia 680w Power Supply with two 80mm fans I would like to replace. I have two more logisys fans I would like to replace them with. I have ran in to an issue though. The fans on the power supply connect each to one 3 pin connector and one 2 pin connector, each fan has 5 wires running from it. Both the fans shared their connectors where as my logisys fans each have seperate connectors. So I some how need to get the two logisys fans connected to one 3 pin connector.Picture 1 picture 2 picture 3

It is hard to tell but my guess is the two pin connector is the power and the three pin connector is the speed control for the fans. I could be wrong but I don't think your new fans are going to work with the power supply setup.

The 2 pin connector is likely for the LED's and the 3 pin is for the actual fan. The reason for the 3rd wire on the fan power is to monitor fan speed/operation. Since the new fans don't have LED's you wont need the 2 pin connection.

Just so you both know "Posted 30 July 2009". I did get it figured out, I don't remember what the solution was, but the frankensteined power supply looks great.
