Hello all!

I bought a HP Pavilion Media Center TV m8156.sc (out of the box and ready to play) PC about a year and half ago. The most parts inside are made by Asus. The original Asus GeForce 8600 GT video card got busted after about 13 months of hard core gaming.

I replaced it with an Asus EAH4850 TOP video card, but it's Glaciator cooler fan's bearings wore out in less than 2 months. I could not wait the 2 weeks it would've taken to get a replacement from the warranty, so I replaced the Glaciator with an Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo cooler.

It's a fantastic cooler, but quite loud, since we had to plug it to my PSU instead of the video card, because Asus EAH4850 TOP has weird non-standard mini connector for the cooler fan:



My question: Where do I get an adapter that turns normal fan connector plug into that Asus special miniplug?

Regards, Jussi

While it mentions Panaflo fans, its just a fan cable, you probably want the cable found here: http://www.svc.com/pana3ptail.html

12" 3-Pin Panaflo(F) to 3-Pin Fan(F) Power Cable Adapter/Tail

Cut the connector from the old and new fan, and solder them together.
