not the led.
the 3 wires coming from the plugs are power, ground, led
you have to pull the led wire from the plug on your fan and then shave the ''alignment 'stick-ups' '' from the fan connector to get the fan connector to fit in the controller connector

no if i understand you right.
positive voltage wire, ground wire, led power wire. the led power wire must be disconnected. its position in the connector is the same position that fan manufacturers use for rpm sensors.

so it is possible to still make it work, the led of the new fan can still be attached to the led on/off button and be able to use it the same way as the original

I could use some advice..

The red boxes with the numbers are places I can add additional fans.

7 is my heatsink fan and the arrow is the corresponding airflow. I'm trying to go with the quietest possible set up so I'm looking to getting Noctua NF-P12. So #7 will be a Noctua NF-P12.

3,4 and 5 would be intakes. 1 and 2 would be exhausts. 6 is just to pull from the stock fans. All of those are optional so I'm wondering which would be best to install another Noctua NF-P12 fan.


What do you guys think?

It's almost impossible to build noiseless rig in this case... You need 10 the same fans, VERY quiet videocard and simple, not broken pump controller on H100...broken will make much noise without the doide fix

I just made new video with my hdd's noise levels and you also can hear the rig with ~1000 RPM fans. Most noise comming from the videocards... I also tested only fans in this case on the ~600-700 rpm and it's pure awesomeness! So you could buy the ASUS DirectCU II gpu or any with the same noise level. Stock temps are high but the noise is very low...

#7fan is that HD80? why do you prefer it going out? isn't corsair recommending push-pull going inwards?

i dont think its his photo. he has posts in another thread talking about replacing fans on a 212+

corsair wants you to pull air into the case because they know their clcs arent that great. i push air out of my case through the h100 because i dont want warmed air pushed into my case. plus i have less dust in my radiator having filtered air going through it compared to ambient dust filled air pulled directly from outside. heat also rises
thats also 5 intakes and 3 exhausts. in mine, i have 6 in and 3 out.

+1 thumb.gif in my system 7 in and 3 out) Works great even with the mesh front filter.

Also it would be cool if replace it with the big grid (i don't know the right word for it) like under the case or in 600T/650D. The only problem is to fix it without any additional legs, just the plastik or metal frame with it.

Thanks for the replies. When you guys are saying 7 in and 3 out are you talking about my diagram or are you talking about how many fans you have ?

My video card is a Asus DCII 7870 and its pretty quiet but I can feel the heat dissipating from the top so would I want #3 to be a intake or exhaust? Thanks!!
