I am however looking for an adapter/cable that has 3 pin male on both ends so that I can hook up the fan controllers LED (on/off) switch.  I noticed that the LED fans (all except the ones that came with the case) have a female connector and the end of the fan controller also has a female connector.  If you know where I can purchase a adapter/cable it would be great!

 



I have no idea where you can get the adapter, but what i do know is that you can go to performance-pcs.com and get the male end and male pins.

Pins

Connectors

hope this helps....

I just finished installing my new control panel and I still have the same issue fan leds flickering on low and med. But at least my reset button works now.


Good News ALL

Below is my conversation with CM MR HAF

Hello Cm MR HAF,

 

I was wondering if you can provide us with a status update on the Fan controller issue. Have you had any luck resolving the Ticking/Pulsating Lights issue on Low and Medium settings yet?

 

Waiting to hear back

 

Thanks a million

Actually yes, we have the new PCB in our labs. We have isolated the issue to two problems:

1. Various fan motors in the industry
2. The way the power is delivered through the fan controller

We have fixed the 2nd part which adjusts the voltage transitions. This also reduces the LED flicker on fans with LED built into the power lead. The clicking you refer to comes from fan motor noise, while the 2nd part should be fixed there is no guarantee that all fans have motors that are up to the standard of the fan controller. We will test further and send an update when the new PCB will be ready.

CM MR HAF: How will we be notified when the new PCB is available? e-mail? PM?

And to anyone here.... currently looking to sell my eVGA GTX 570 if you're interested. Would LIKE $250... which might be a little much... but make an offer if you think that's asking too much. Really want a 680. Hell.... if i win one from Asus, i'll probably GIVE AWAY my 570 to someone.

Closest i can come to a picture of my 570. Also have the original box and accessories.

^This. Looking to sell my 6950 soon as well for the GTX 680 to put in this monster. I'm hoping 250-300 with it being the reference design but we'll see

Also just a quick question regarding the front 200mm fan. Has anyone used the NZXT 200mm performance or silent? I noticed, as someone pointed out, I can BARELY feel the stock one push any air on high using the built in fan controller.

What's the best 200mm fan to put into the stock front location? A fan to move masive amounts of air, yet still being silent. Led lights not a must.

Hi Everyone,

As gponcho has already shared, we have the solution already. We met our goal to alter the way our fan controller delivers power which reduces the LED flicker when the LED's are running off the same power as the fan controller. However, the issue of fan motor noise, not all fan motors meet the standard of our fan controller. We will do our best to ensure maximum compatiblity, but we always urge those with fan issues to consult the original fan manufacturer first. While we believe our revision solves both issues of LED flicker and motor noise, we will test before we release it to the public.

We will update around the first week of April. What we will do is use our current parts request system. Those who want to use the new controller can submit the part request starting in April, and we will provide the part as a part of our standard warranty to all valid Cosmos II serial numbers. At the same time i'll attach a guide on how to install the part correctly. The Cosmos II I/O is very expensive and that makes it a bit tricky to replace the parts.

will the new contoller at least work with cooler masters fans properly. as nice as it will be to not have flashing LEDs, i think most people are concerned about the motor noise.

Thanks and that is great news:

 

The one concern I have is that you have glue holding all the connectors to the controller. Will it be easy to remove?

 

Also As I mentioned to you in the email I sent back to you. The fan controller cable (that turns on/off the LED on the fan) is a female connector and most fans (95%) also have a female connector on them. The problem is that we need one end to be male in order to connect the controller cable to the fan?  Do you have some kind of adapter or cable that can convert one end from female to Male?

None of the Fan companys have such an item and I talked to a few of them and they all stated that the LED connection is always a female end.
