    CPU fan resistor cable, ok for case fans?

    hello,

    I have a resistor cable that came with my CPU cooler. I also have one of the most annoying noisy whirring things I have ever come across, I actually feel relief to hear it switch off. One of my case fans. I've tried getting rid of it, but I can't unscrew it, it's very tightly done (it came with the case). So, I was thinking of fitting the resistor cable that came with the CPU cooler on the the case fan cable. Will this work, and be compatible?

    Thanks!

    Yup it'll be fine. So long as it's a boring old 3 pin fan.
