    System monitor compatible with 4 pin fans?

    Can anyone recommend a system monitor that will work with 4 pin fans. The ones I've seen so far only work with 3 pins.
    Many thanks

    When I said 4 pin I wasn't talking about molex, but rather the one that comes on the intel stock HSF for sk775 and this HSF:

    I've missed a trick here.

    What is the extra wire for?

    And oh my word that HSF is scarey.
    PHP Code:

    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    To be honest I wouldn't be suprised if you couldn't mod it to work anyway.

    lol, serious cooling

    Maybe you could mod it onto a 3pin cable instead?
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.

    Yep, its going to be used for overclocking.
    I find it strange that there are no fan controllers out there that will work with the LGA775 fans. Maybe they're coming out soon?
