500r fan connector goo and side fan troubles


Recommended Posts



I'm trying to connect the side fan to the fan connector but I can't find where to connect it. When I look for the fan, I find something that looks like the image in the attachment: a bunch of wires held together by some glue.


Is that glue normal? Where do I find where to attach the side fan?


I've tried attaching the fan to the motherboard directly, but that doesn't seem to fit.

You can't connect the 500R's fans to the motherboard. Those fan connectors are proprietary. The fan connects to the front panel fan controller. Trace the two front fans and you'll find the additional lead for the side panel fan that way. There's also a cable with a molex connector on it. You need to connect that to your PSU.
