How to use Pi-FAN with MATRIX Creator?


#1

Hi there,

I’m interested to use the Pi cooling fan which is normally connected to the GPIO of the raspberry pi in the pins number 4 and 6 since the fourth pin is a 5V and the sixth is a Ground pin. The Matrix Creator is connected to all those pins that’s meaning I cannot use them. My question is, can I use the expansion pinout in the Matrix Creator to connect the fan? If yes, which pins to use exactly as I need a 5V and a ground to power a Pi-FAN.

Thank you in advance.

Can I assume that since this went unanswered that a 5v pin is not available on the Creator?
