Connecting extra Blower with power


Recommended Posts



I would like to add an extra Blower (something like the Scoondoggy blower) too my system. (my P222-Raid-controller is getting very hot --> 77°C) Is there a possibility to connect it to the motherboard (3pin) or do I have to use Y-cable ?

The easiest option is to tap into the 4 pin molex power connector that runs the drive cage. You don't get any adjustment for temperature though if you do that.


The single fan inside the G8 Microserver isn't a normal PC 3 pin or 4 pin fan. There isn't a tach output and it just has a sense line to indicate it is spinning. Look at http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1377-page9.htmlfor more information. That article doesn't entirely make sense so you should check the linked forum as well.
