a brushless PC cooling fan ?

Hi all !

I have a fan from an old PC that I am going to use for a cooling tube. the problem is it says brushless on the fan, and has 3 wires if red is (+), and black is (-), what is the yellow one ? you can guess I don't have any brushless motors...


Thanks a lot,
Avi

The yellow one is used to measure the rpm of the fan, you don't need to worry about that
