TF360 Fan Header

Post by terriblefire » Sun Sep 15, 2019 9:57 am

Before i order the rev 1 I want to quickly look at adding a header for a fan.

We need to use 12V so it will need to be close to the edge connector.

What header component should I use?

EDIT: Is Molex KK 3 pin still the standard? https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/pcb-headers/1707102/

two or three pin are the most used it seems on cooling fans, obviously three pin has the extra signal pin for fan speed measuring, I would still go for the three pin as options are always good and you can always hack a two pin to fit :)

Ok here is the dilema.. the only place left to fit this is in the top left of the board. But to do that i need to bring 12V right across the board... I... i dont wanna.

Is 5V fan header useless?

Why bother adding that , you will have a spare 5v and GND from the power reg circuit so it just means cutting and adding a couple of connectors onto the cable, what do you think ?

Went for a 3 pin .1 header with 5V in the center and ground on each side.
