# Female 4 pin fan header

While male 4 pin fan headers are plentiful (e.g., here), I can't find a female version of it. I see lots of them on fan extension cables, but none that can be soldered to a PCB. Does anyone know a type number or some information to continue my search?

I guess I could use standard 4 pin square headers without the tab, but I prefer to use the 'official' Molex connector to prevent myself from applying 12V to the 5V tach line and for a more secure fit.

Thank you very much.

• These are meant for board-to-wire connections, I don't think you will find a board mountable female connector for it. Jun 17, 2019 at 22:00

Here's a general method for finding mating parts for Molex connectors.

1. Go to the Molex site and search for the Molex part number,
which is the manufacturer part number (mfr. part # for short)
In your case it's 47053-1000.

2. You'll get the product page.
