Would someone have a link to a tutorial and links to parts we may need in order to put connectors on? I've never done it, so I'd like to learn. wink.gif

If you read my posts above, you find the material needed to make a connector rolleyes.gif

I recommend investing in a soldering iron and a heat gun.

 

Buy a heatshrink tube kit from Radio Shack -- the one with mixed calibers.

 

Buy some of these (3pin Fan Tail), or something similar.

 

Put pieces of heatshrink tubing on the three wires, away from the ends.

 

Splice the wires. Connect the yellow rpm wire to the rpm wire of the plug. That is the wire on the other edge from the black wire. IIRC the RPM wires on the plug ends cited above are white, so you would splice the yellow RPM fan wire to the white RPM wire coming from the plug. The yellow wire coming from the plug (the middle 12v wire) you splice to the red wire coming from the fan. You splice black to black (both ground).

 

Solder the splices.

 

Run the heatshrink tubing down the wires over the joints.

 

Shrink the tubing with your heat gun.

 

Sleeve to taste.

 

Enjoy your fans.

 

A pictorial tutorial: posts 4 and 6 here.

This is for the large molex connectors pins, but it would be about the same approach to the pins in a fan connector.
Edit: fan pins are molex pins IIRC. And you don't have to buy a crimper, you can use a nose plyer instead

Alright.... so one guy picked up his fans.

Do we know if the fans in the states are completes or barebone models? I know it was stated they were barebones, but the tach feature and model numbers gave reason to believe otherwise so I am simply looking for clarification.

Also, while the guy who was able to pick his up has them, do we have any idea yet how things are coming along in getting these shipped or are there still issues with FTW, change of orders, etc.?

I know a lot of people are focusing on the fans and bare wires, etc. right now, but I want to know perhaps if there is any additional information I missed in the last few days.

Thanks.

From what admin posted, they ordered AP's for both lots. We thought we were getting 2-wire and 3-wire fans, both sets with plugs. Instead, what was ordered was one lot of 3-wire fans without plugs, and one lot of 3-wire fans with plugs.

 

It's not what we expected, but some of us can live with it. Hopefully all of us can.

Thanks.

The completes should have the 3 pin connector, so it seems the barebones got the tach wire for free but no connector. There has been no official confirmation though that I'm aware of (last post that I found)

We are still waiting for Mort to:
- update the spreadsheet
- Provide the shipping information and materials to CaseLabs

It's only been a month now, we should have a pool on how long it takes wink.gif

You can search the thread and you will find that Tator was specific just before he placed the order with Nidec: the barebone ones were to have two wires (no tach) and no connector. So it's not at all a trade-off, it's a bonus for free. So yeah, its a good thing.

And as for those disappointed that there are no connectors: in building a pc, you will surely come across a need at some point to remove/install some pins and connectors. Its not a big deal and you need to learn this basic skill Heck, on my first machine i installed about 40-50 pins on molex and fan connectors all with a pair of needle nose pliers.
Pins and connectors are cheap and if they are a bit finnicky to install, you still need to learn how to do it.

You get EVERYTHING you paid for and so extra stuff for free. Before ordering Tator made it clear that the barebones would have no pins and only two wires. You get no pins and three wires. Bonus.
