Apollo 040 fan not working with Ateobus

Hi I have an ateobus and apollo 040.

The apollo 040 has a fan on it and when the power is connected straight to mobo the fan runs ok.

When the power goes through the Ateobus the fan doesnt work =\

The Apollo still works ok but not the fan...

Any ideas?

The wires are soldered onto the pcb

I would have to add a 2pin head or could I attach a molex head?

there are molex extension cables for that job that give a +5V or +12V 2-pin plug...
if the reason is that the aetobus needs more power and the fan does not start, I would cut it off now and give power to the fan directly! or give power to the aetobus directly... let's see what others have to say for this situation...
I would not turn on the amiga with this prob if I was you...

Yeah at the moment it runs at 43 degrees C with no fan. I only run it for 5 mins or else it would probably reach 50 degrees or more

With the fan it seems to settle near 37-40 (still not great)

How would I go about giving the fan power directly?

@smiley

Do you want a molex soldered onto the fan for connection direct to the PSU?

What software are you using to monitor your card temperature?

We can fit a Y power lead to the fan:
