Case fan

    I pulled a 120mm fan out of a bad power supply. The fan itself works great,
    and it appears to be of good quality, so I am wondering if there was a way
    that I could use it as an additional case fan. It only has a 2-pin power
    connector on the fan. What would I need in order to use it if I could use
    it in the first place? Thanks.

    You will need to wire the fan to a 12 vdc Molex male connector and then
    connect it to one of the power supply 12 vdc jacks. Of course you will need
    to get the positive and ground leads correctly identified.
