Power for fan "borrowed" from DVD power cord

Hello!

 

I have my DVD player connected to my HX520 and the cord have basically 3 connectors, one that fits in the PSU and then there are two "outputs", which I'm using one of for the DVD.

 

My question is, can I use the other "output" on this cord to power one of my chassi fans (Kama Bay, 120mm fan) or is it only intended for the same kind of equipment i.e. a DVD. The connector fits and it seams to work good but I wonder if this could create some problems and it's actually more suitable to have a dedicated fan cord directly from the PSU.

 

Best regards,

Yes, the internal drive you put CD and DVD discs in. Maybe the correct name is DVD-rom.

 

The word DVD-player maybe only exist in the Swenglish language ;)

 

Not easy to get everything right in a foreign language...

Hello,

 

Thanks for your prompt answers!

 

Interesting about the DVD-player vs. DVD rom, I can understand your confusion. It actually made the original question kind of funny since I guess it happens that people use the PSU to run equipment outside the computer.

 

Always good to learn some more english and computer stuff.

 

Thanks again!

 

Best regards,

Johan, Sweden
