No fan with my CM3 kit.

Post by FlashyFrank » Wed Sep 11, 2019 5:12 pm

I got my kit back in February and am just now having the time to jump into starting my build. I am looking over all the parts I have and it looks like the fan was not included. I'm pretty sure i have not misplaced it. Is it possible that it was not included with my shipment? I am not too concerned but I am wondering if it was missed in the packaging and if it's possible to get one from somewhere?

If you ordered the CM3L+ version then it doesn't come with a fan. At some point i will update the photos to avoid confusion. You can still buy a fan from aliexpress or similar (search "sunon 30mm") and it'll work

Oh ok, thanks for the quick reply. I never really noticed the temp getting too high on my other build so I am not too worried about it.

So if I do buy a fan from aliexpress do I need to buy a special connector to plug it into the CS board? I am thinking about buying one but it looks like they do not come with a connector attached. If so what kind of connector? Thank you for all of the quick replies.

There are solder pads next to the connector, use those :) the connector on the fan itself is very uncommon and impossible to find!
