How to hook up my fans and pump to PSU?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need to know make sure I am hooking this stuff up to my PSU right so I don't have any power problems once I get everything going.

PSU: Corsair 1200AX
I have 2 cables that came with the computer that has a 6 PIN PCI-E cable to 4 4-Pin colex connector cable.

Pumps

I have 2 PMP-450 pumps to hookup. Each has a 4-Pin molex connector.

Does each pump need to be connected in to the PSU on a seperate power cable or can they share one of the Y cables?

Fans

13 Gentle Typhoon 1850's.

I have 13 fans to hook up and this is where I am lost. I had purchased a Sunbeam Multi Fan Port and hooked up 7 fans to it and melted a 4 way Y cable in the process. So I need some serious advice on how I can go about hooking up fans.

Again, the same question as above. Do I need to isolate the fan ports out from one of these 4-Pin molex Y cables and hook it up seperately from the pumps on the PSU? Maybe this was my problem.

I don't think I need a fan controller whatsoever. I will get one if it makes hooking them up "easier" for sure but with those fans, 100% all the time is fine!

At some point I would like to get something like the Aquero XT that has more water cooling use than just a fan controller but at this point may be a little overkill. But, I am all about easier so if it makes my life easier, I would get something like that.

Any advice is appreciated.

They can share one, that PSU is single rail anyway so no worries about that.

You must have pulled to many amps through it, NICE WORK xD... GTs can pull a fair bit at start up.

If you want a highly rated fan control, have a look at the Lampton FC2, thats got 45W per channel. http://www.lamptron.com/products/vie...Controller_FC2

I was thinking about an FC-8 and running 2 fans off each channel. In the end it's probably easier just to get that. Surely that's enough power. I will see if I can get some feedback from Lamptronics on how many fans it can handle.

thanks for the help

GT startup amps 0.36A.. Lets round that to 0.4 for safety. so thats a rounded of 1.2Watts on start up.

You could do like everyone of you're fans off one channel.

Yea, I came up with the same number and thought I had this all hooked up right. Just don't see where 7 fans was killing that Fan Bus. Could be there is something wrong with it or maybe one of the fans. Not sure.

My whole computer build is a case of overkill so why not 1 more item lol. I will be adding more fans at some point as I add a second loop so the fan controller should give me plenty of growth.

Thanks again for the help.
