    how do i achieve this? ps3 fan has 3 wires grey black and brown i don't wish to solder anything i'd rather splice need help asap as ps3 is dismantled atm and in front of me

    The brown runs 12V the black is ground, and the grey runs 3.3V (to make the fan spin)

    Best Answer - Posted by scarface1689:

    The PS3 fans run on a PWM system. They run at 12V all the time, but the 3rd fan wire sends a small voltage to the fan that actually controls the speed. You want to cut the 3rd wire from the fan (gray one) and wire it to a power source. If you send it 3.3V, it will run at full speed ahead captain. You can find 3.3V coming off the PS3 power supply.
