Dell Dimension 2300, 2350, CPU Case Cooling Fan 2X333 and 02X322.
A great replacement and low cost alternative to your stock CPU Case Fan, which provides an excellent amount of airflow that will lower your overall system temperature. This fan fits in the shroud; Dell part number 2X333 and 02X322.
This 92mm x 25mm fan comes (shroud not included) equipped with a standard 3-pin motherboard connector, RPM sensor and Dual 4 pin Molex Power Connectors.
This is a single speed fan and not temperature controlled. There is a possibility you may encounter an error message "fan not detected" upon bootup. This does not affect functionality which can be cleared manually and allow normal operation to continue.
Please check your fan application and verify plug configuration before making your purchase. Dell computers vary by year even if they are the same model and may use a different 3-pin motherboard connector. See photo to compare.
If the shape of your 3-pin connector appears as (white or light brown) the one shown in the photo, then you have the correct fan. If not, the you will need the 3-pin Dell proprietary connector. We also have that fan for sale on our site.
For this particular application, the standard 3-pin connector is designed to plug into the motherboard. So installation will be a snap. You also have the option of using one of the Molex Dual 4-pin connectors [same as the ones the hard drives or cd-roms use].
Simply unplug the 3-pin connector from the motherboard and plug in one of the 4-pin molex Dual Power Connectors to an available power supply connector.
When using the 4-pin molex connector, the fan will operate just fine. However, your computer will not sense the fan because of not using the 3-pin motherboard connector.
Some users of these alternate fans have resorted to turning off the fan warning detection to bypass the error message on bootup. We do not advocate or endorse these methods. We are simply reporting what others have done to resolve this issue.
Most of the time you can turn OFF the fan detector to avoid these warnings. To do so, turn on the computer, and immediately Hit or hold down the F2 or DEL key to access the BIOS screen.
The settings are located in Power Management section of BIOS.
Use the following settings:
-Low Power Mode=OFF
Some users have had success setting their "halt on" settings to "no errors".
This fan is a quality and low cost alternative to the original one costing well over $50.00, and usually is refurbished.
