    I was wondering how I connect them directly to a power supply. Not sure what the yellow wire is for...

    Usually its this:

    Which contradicts the standard PC power supply wiring (Yellow normally being +12v) So just be careful. If you don't hookup the sensor it tends just to run at 100%

    You could also remove the sticker which normally reveals what colour wire goes where.

    As Derf said, clip the yellow wire off and use red as V+ and black as V-.

    I sell a nice 60mm ball bearing fan if anyone is wanting them.
