    So it spins? Constantly or up and down with the main CPU fan?

    DIY mods step 1... reach for the cable ties.

    Maybe as a compromise use a variable resistor to find the right value and mod it to something reasonable.

    donno if EC controls it or what not i'd treat that fan as disposable and have it run at all time. feels pretty weak tbh, could be because no lid so less air pressure. gonna make a lid for it which will also help mount to circled screw holes. double circle = screw grip can put a thin screw and mount it. single circle its used by the bottom cover so already has a screw, just need something that has a circle and held in place by it.

    ps. after putting on bottom cover theres actually quite a bit more space, i dare say a 8mm fan would fit. will purchase 8mm fan and try next.

    A lid is needed for a blower fan certainly. In that config most of it is just spun in 360 degrees out.

    Do you connected fourth (probably blue) wire to connector? This is speed control for this fan.

    im more interested in single 2080 and z390 for possible PCH onboard wifi/bluetooth. if ipex connector is even built in along with PCH then i can use the wifi A+E slot for something else.

    single 2080, 8 core, 4 fans, and lots of storage mods.

    What about splicing in PWM from primary CPU fan connector?

    FWIU, PWM is a pretty standard electrical signal that wouldn't be affected by splitting the wire into two?

    i could try that, just have to figure out which color is the right one, blue/yellow for this HP fan. also even if i figured out the correct one how would i be able to test it to verify if i got the right one or not, FN+1?

    currently with just GRND and 5v, in gaming its around 3-4 degree cooler, but the constant noise
