the reason red and white are down there is because thats the ways mine is wired up if you hook up the red and black you will burn the 5 volt fan up thats for 12 volts

zack247 (author)wizard4nh32010-06-27

the voltage coming out of a usb port is 5 volts, 12 volts aren't coming out of any normal usb port

please take a multimeter and test the red and white wires they are 5 volts and i was wrong about the red and black being 12 volts after testing they are 5 volts .
