Both Red (positive) and Black (Negative) are on the 4 pin molex. The 3 pin fan connector just has one blue wire. If I do not plug the 4 pin molex and have the 3 pin only, the fans do not run even if the dial is maxed (fan controller shows nothing for the RPM but shows the voltage). If I connect both 3 pin and 4 pin, I can see the RPM (3700) and the volts but when I turn down the dial the volts go down but the fan remains at 3700 RPM. Am I doing something wrong or am I just dumb? :P

Yup, im dumb. I will have to remove the 4 pin molex and add pins plus the black/red wires and crimp them to the 3 pin and I should be all set.

I wouldn't daisy chain deltas at all.

They are a high amperage fan iirc and your best to run 1 fan off each channel.

If you need more than 5 of those in a case you have some serious case modding problems.

Nah I'll be fine, at most when these Delta's use on first boot is about 12.7 Watts then levels down to 12 watts which will run them at 3700 RPM. Daisy chaining two of them will do about 25.4 Watts on one channel on first boot. The Lamptron FC5v2 does 30 watts per channel so it will be fine. I will report back here once I modify these fans to have all the wires connected to the 3 pin.

Update, I got he fans working with 3 pin only. They work fine when having two Delta's on one channel. Sorry I forgot to take pics.
