My case has two fans. One is on top, which draws its power from the front panel. It works fine.

The other is on the side and needs to be plugged into the motherboard. It has a 2-pin connector

My motherboard is a GA-F2A88X-D3H. It has, as far as I can tell, three fan headers. One is 3-pin, the other two are 4-pin.

See picture.


Where do I connect my 2-pin fan?

can you provide a pic of the fan connector?  Is it a molex connector? or is it small enough to fit on the 3 pin header.  You can put the 2 pin connector on the 3 pin motherboard header as long as it fits.  The third wire is for polling fan speed and although not required it is sometimes nice to see/adjust fan speed.  You can also get a 3 pin fan to 4 pin adapter (to connect to mobo) or 3 pin fan to power supply molex adapter. (to connect to PSU)
