Hello, i'm a bit of a slowpoke so i've only recently heard that early batches of those had a hardware defect - sometimes one fan refuses to spin while under load(slight nudge is enough to 'fix' it).

So i'm looking to replace them, question is - there are few connector types(6 wires 6 pins, 5 wires 6 pins, and even 4 wires 4 pins) - do i need one with strictly same wires and pins? Because in the case of 6-6 and 5-6 - wire order is pretty much identical, except blue wire in 5-6 which has 2 blue wires on 1 pin.

Ok, i think i've got it(probably not):
One lot on aliexpress points out - GTX 980Ti 960 950 R9 has 4 wires 4 pins connector, GTX 980 has 6 wires 6 pins, and GTX 970 has 5 wires 6 pins.
