    Need to find two fan connector cables; Cant find them anywhere..

    Alright, i have this palit 4870, and its loud as heck on idle...because only one of the two are on a fan controller.

    Im going to give you an image of the card and explain after you've see it.
    Look for the 2 pin fan connector to the left of the 2x6pin power connectors and the 3 pin to the right.

    So i dont want to void my warranty so i cant cut any cables.
    What I need is 1X 2pin (M to F)
    And 1X 3 (M to F)


    What i want to do is connect each fan connector on the card to the ones i buy, however the 2pin will be spliced into the 3pin line thus making both voltage controlled and the noise will be drastically reduced.

    I just need a website or store where i can buy these cables, and any additional information to help me avoid frying my card.

    Thank you.

    Appreciate the help, but i need some final help.

    Will getting this connector; let 2 fans to be controlled or will it be one fan running at max and the other regulated by temp?

    Yeah that looks like a possible solution, or you need to simply mod your own.

    If you put two fans on this, and a fan controller on the other end, you'd be controlling the speed of both fans.

    Well, it seems if i do it the way i showed one fan should dictate both of their speed. Since its on a video card its exactly what i need.

    However their is a new revision, so im going to rma it and see if palit will help me out, no reason they shouldnt.
