Agree with Elohim. I'm using Thermalright TY-140 series fans with great results.

Can I get in the club? 3770K @ 4.4Ghz and keeping it cool at ~28-32 degrees centigrade idle temps.

Hey guys, is it normal for the CPU fans to stay off? I am still sitting in a range from 30-60 C on my CPU with out the fans spinning. I just want to make sure nothing is broken.

Don't know if anything is broken but something isn't right. Fans should be spinning all the time and go faster as heat goes up, depending on setup.

My setup is Red Madman in my sig. I will continue to monitor my temps.

I found out the problem was with the PWM converter. I removed it and now the CPU fans are spinning without a problem. Seems like a problem to me.

Sounds like the 12v or ground lead is not connecting in connectors or on board.. or it a bad board.

Contact Phanteks customer service. They are very good and will send you out a new one.

Bet your temps dropped when the fans started running. biggrin.gif

Although your temps before were not at all bad.

A mate and I were bantering about who's cooler was better over a pint one evening when I was showing off how good mine was cooling. I bet him a pint I could unplug all my cooler and it would run just fine. While drinking that pint (I was getting lubed just fine) I bet him another pint I could turn of the case fans and it would still stress test with no problems. Well it took awhile before he handed me another pint... like 30 minutes of steady 100% load, but CPU temp finally stabilized at 70c. on my i7 920 @ 3.55GHz. Don't ask what the ambient was. I was too tanked to check. 20-22c range.

The Temps are steadier now. I believe the reason why they stayed so low was because I have some really nice BitFenix fans in the case as well as two 140mm fans that came with the Define R4 (also really good fans), so there was still some good air flow. I will contact Phanteks and see if they can send me another PWM converter.

I'm sure having one of the biggest and best cooling coolers and one of the best cases didn't help much. biggrin.gif

How fast are the fans now spinning and what are your temps compared to no cooler fans running?
