But why isn't anybody else commenting? confused.gif

redface.gif There's probably not a lot to comment on at this stage, but I do have a question for those who drop by.

I'm considering unsoldering the wires from all of my fans (Zalman 120mm ZM-SF3) and then resoldering new wires that are cut to a desired length. Has anyone tried re-wiring a fan? When I say re-wiring, I mean remove/replace the wires completely, not just splicing and extending the original wires.

I see two advantages in doing this. The fans could be connected directly to the fan controller which would eliminate a secondary cable and connection. The wire colour can match the sleeve I choose (I'm thinking white).

Update: Starting pulling apart one of my Zalman ZM-SF3 fans.

Does anyone have any experience/advice on remove the circuit board etc from these fans? I need to remove it from the centre shaft so I can access the other side of the circuit board. I've uploaded a photo in the "Cable sleeving" section.

Finally!!! A month a half later, I've received my shipment from mdpc. A few connectors and pins I ordered from performance-pcs arrive today as well. I'm going to try and sleeve a few sata cables before I tackle the 24 pin biggrin.gif I'll post some pics later tonight.

Subbed...can't wait to see what you do with this build....

It's actually really easy to replace the fan wiring. It's not done very often, but like you, I am doing the same in my build. The advantages you listed are the reasons to do it!

Good luck on this build!

+1 for performance-pcs & MDPC.

As for your fan I believe some are held on by a hotgluegun.
Not all but some, you could always sacrifice one to find out.

As for soldering your fan directly to your fancontroller isn't recommended.
What if a fan dies or has a bad bearing you would have to pull and remove all your fans etc just to get to that one fan.
Use the regular fan connector pins for this.

Best of luck!

It's not that hard to do, just get the same/similar guage wire in the color you want, and just solder it on the pads where the old wires went.
