I've got a Notua 5V 3 pin fan. I bought a CoolerGuys 3 pin to 2 pin adapter with CB-32C Connector. The only problem is I have to plug the CB-32C in backwards on the mobo to get the fan to turn on.

Guess this isn't a common problem, I tried googling before I posted here.

What is the best way to fix this? Is this what the OmniJoin adapter set is for?

yup ^^ that. you have to push the tabs down to slide the pins out. then you use the needle to pick under the tab and pull it back up a couple mm, so it locks when reinserted.

apologies guys, I am pushing down hard but can't get it budge. Am I pushing down on the silver tabs near the top or the bottom where it connects to the board?

I am using a paperclip.
