2008-10-27 13:04:54rev. 2CORRECTFor better quality, you might include pulse frequency and min/max width. Schema of the connector would be good too.APPROVED

2012-09-24 06:53:25rev. 2CORRECTthis information is correct. thanks for such nice infoAPPROVED
2013-03-03 02:33:27rev. 3CORRECTThe PWM signal from the motherboard sources 5V during the "on" state of the pulse, otherwise it's pulled to ground. The tacho signal from the fan sinks to ground for every revolution, the input on the motherboard is pulled high.APPROVED

2019-07-23 18:57:37rev. 4CORRECTThere is a very very small chance that the yellow wire is actually red. While it is noted as usual in the table, I would personally change it to "yellow (sometimes red)". The only other change I would make is to the picture, maybe add a second 4 pin variant which has the key at pins 1 and 3, alongside the picture with the keys at pins 1 and 4. Just my opinion that it may help with novices.APPROVED
