Post PSA - H80i/H100i Y-connector

We've received calls/tickets about an "incorrect" fan cable supplied with the H80i/H100i. The Y-splitter cable shipped with the H80i/H100i/H110i GT has two plastic tabs covering the 4-pin male connector. This is to protect the pins from being bent during shipping and to avoid any unwanted grounding/short problem if the cable is not used while connected to the pump.

I thought the same hahaha so dumb of us. Though I'd personally make these covers to be different colour just to make it stand out!

Default How to plug in 2 pin fan into 4 pin y connector??

Hey guys. I figured out you have to take the caps off, and it might just be me being sleep deprived, but what is the proper way to plug in the stock fans that come with the h100i to the y connector? The fans have 2 pins and the y that comes with the box has 4? just stuck trying to figure it out. Thanks guys

I had a moment of brilliance that revealed my previous moment of idiocy...The epiphany hit as I pulled the covers off the connector. "Wow, I'm smart!" I thought. "Oh, rly? A smart guy wouldn't have taken an hour to figure this out."

Maybe a little pictogram in the instructions showing that you need to remove the covers from the pins would be appropriate for us smart/dumb guys. : )

My wife laughed so hard I thought she was going to hurt herself.

Ive had eyes on your build regularly and Im glad to see things are looking up.,anyone can pay to have sheet metal,panels,painting done by another yet call it built by them but truly doing everything yourself produces so much more satisfaction even if there are flaws.
Things are looking good,keep up the good work...

There should also be a "Please Do Not Eat" warning in case someone thinks it's a snack.
