Thanks. Everything is working fine so far except for one thing. I have my 2 clear LED fans that were on the front of my 500R at the top now and the stock exhaust fan from the case at the bottom next to the PSU. Those 3 fans do not display the RPM's on my Recon touch screen. I can turn them on and off with the controller, but that is all.
Anyone else use the stock 120mm Corsair fans on a fan controller with a screen that shows RPM's? Just wondering if it is just those fans that will not display RPM's. The 200mm works fine with the controller and also my SP120 and Bitfenix fans.

glad you dont have a heat problem
the fans in the front of the cases have 3 wire fans but its hot wire, ground wire, led wire. i have no idea about the rear fan though. i thought it had an rpm sensor. i guess it doesnt

Hello.
I bet this has been said before but because 195 pages i'm just gonna ask.
Can you guys give me the specs (rpm/dBA) of the stock fans that come with the 500R? I need to know if i have to get new fans or those will do the job and not be over 25-28dBA
post #1945 of 4610
Speaking of fans can someone point me towards some dust filters/covers and fans for the side panel on the 400R? Any good recommendations for a fan controller would be appreciated as well. Quiet fans are not a real concern but I am ordering some Sennheiser PC360's next week and wonder how much fan noise the open backed design on the 360's will let in.

any of these fans would be good if you want quiet fans that still move some air: Cougar CF-V12HB, Cougar CF-V12HPB, BitFenix Spectre Pro, Scythe Slipstream, Enermax TB Silence, Gentle Typhoons, Enermax Magma, Xigmatek XAF.

you can use the DEMCiflex filter or a pair of 120mm filters. the demciflex filter reduces airflow by 15% though, so you may want to get some stronger fans if you get that.

you can get some nice fan controllers from NZXT, Scythe or Lamptron to name a few.

Are you going to sell the windowed panel for those who don't got the windowed one? Cause I bought my 300r when it came out and I was going to mod a window but now I don't need too if you sell them tongue.gif
