The diameter is the distance across the blades in millimeters and will be a figure such as 80mm, 90mm, 120mm, etc. Most fans have three or four terminals on the cable that comes out of the fan.

Hi Lady Fitzgerald
Thanks.
I know.
Bad habit of mine, as not able to focus correctly, most of the time.

Pictures make it easier to remember
Excellent advice!

I have ADHD so I know where you are coming from on focusing.

PSU making noise!
My PSU just started making a noise, like if something's touching the fan. It's a different computer from the one in my specs. It's a sturdy black one, however this PC has no case and the PSU is positioned in a way that the fan is on top and sucks in air, so a lot of dust goes in. Since September it...
