First question:
I have a Sensflow fan, I'd like to install in my case.
The problem is that the plug is a male when it needs to be a female.
Should I buy something like THIS or something like THIS and strip the wires?

Second question:
I have an 80mm fan I want to put into my front 120mm fan slot.
The reason is because it displays text and I would like it in the front of my computer where I can see it.
What's the cheapest way to accomplish this?

thanks.

Depending on your electronics background, I would find it easier to strip the wires and put a new plug on, however if you get them backwards it may cause problems/it may work but just go backwards and suck air rather than push or vice versa.

You can buy fan adapters to put a 80mm fan in a 120mm place, but they sit back a bit - link

There are 10 types of people in the world, those that can read binary, and those who can't.

thanks. I'll probably just strip the wires then.

Would something like THIS work? :blink:
