Hi,

 

I have 3 120MM Phanteks case fans but their cables all black. How can I know which one is ground,12V and tach?

No, but one of them is solid black, one of them has text on it and the other one is half-grey.

they have the same position as any fans, just find a picture with colored cables

But how do I need to hold it? Which surface is going to look up?

The black wire is ground

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions
