    Hi, I have an old Mac Pro Early 2008 with a fried motherboard. Im trying to use its fans for my Windows pc. they have a 4 pin connector do does my motherboard but the wont turn on. The fans Model number is Delta AFB1212HHE and they are 12v 0.75A and my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-z97x-ud3h-bk.

    Any way to make them work?

    No easy way. Mac fans use a completely different controlling method and so they are expecting different signalling.
