As stated on another topic, I have recently acquired a Compaq Deskpro 486/33.
That PC came upgraded with a Cyrix cx486 DX-2 @66Mhz, but there is no fan installed on top of the CPU cooler.
To compensate for it, I was thinking about getting an 80mm fan in the case blowing past the CPU, but I have hit a "slight" snag... I cannot seem to find any place where I can connect the fans at all - there are no 5v pins on the board and all my fans are 5V 80mm Noctua fans - so I cannot just use a Molex to fan adapter.
While thinking about options I noticed that my AWE seems to have an awful amount of pins going out of it... and I had a crazy idea that maybe one of them could be a 5V one I can use.
I guess my questions here are:
1 - Is there a 5v output from the AWE32 that I can use?
2 - If there is, should I use it for this purpose or is it not advisable
3 - Any other suggestions short of buying a 12v fan?
