    Power supply fan

    I had a power supply that went bad, so I decided that it would be prudent to use the exhaust fan as an extra case fan (can't have too many, right?). Well I got it out of the p/s, but I'm not sure how I'm going to power it. I have used up all of my motherboard fan power connections, but it wouldn't matter anyway since it's a two pin fan, not three as all of my case fans are. Anyway, my question is this: Can I splice the red/black wires from the power supply fan into the red/black wires of a case fan I'm currently using? It's a .16A fan, so I wasn't sure that the connector on the motherboard would be able to handle the demand practically doubling. Any clues? Thanks in advance.

    sure.they are rated like .18 amps usually and the wires are rated at 3.0 so should be no prob.
