I found a fan I can use. But it has a 4 pin connector. I looked for a molex to 4 pin adaptor but couldnt find one online. Does anyone know if they make such a thing?

I never knew they were interchangable. That would work but i need to reach the side of the cabinet. So I am going to have to find some type of extender anyway.

IDK if it's what you need but I've got a couple molex to 3pin adapters, I'd be glad to drop one in the mail next time I'm in town if you want. Just shoot me a pm.

that wouldnt work unless you pryed one side of the female (the adapter part) off as they only fit 3 pin fans

This is almost identical to what I have in my hand, I see no reason why it wouldn't work if smack has a molex connection that will reach to that side of his case.

Mostly just need to do the finishing work and mount the speakers. I was worried about the picture moving while playing. I am happy to report that it is stable. We had some pretty heated matches of Mortal Combat and Street Fighter and didnt notice any movement of the screen. This picture is a 120" screen.


It's been years, but are you still using this setup? I am also worried about shaking with a built in projector but want to do it anyway. I figure you have had enough time to test it and if you haven't changed your mind then I'm good to go! :)
