Looking really nice.

If the cumulative total capacity of the controller is 180W, and you need that much (6 channels at 30W per) that's 15 amps on the 12V supply line. Divide that up among 3 molexes and it's a conservative 5 amps per pin.
It would have been a little easier to work with them if they'd used multiple pigtails from the pcb, each with a molex and a little lighter gage, more flexible longer wire, rather than one big, and too short to be useful, cable to the first molex and then short daisy chains to the next molexes.
I made that mod to my Lamptrons, and it made them so much nicer to work with.
I'd also make sure that the fan wire wasn't pinched somewhere and that it wasn't one of those horrid phobya splitters involved

Wow good explanation, but I'm a bit confused on what to do to keep it from blowing up.

Is it a good idea to connect 4 fans to a PCB and route that as one channel to lampton? I understand that there is a limit but its confusing. What mod did you make to your fan controller? What do you mean by 3 molex? The 3 pin?

Then you mean there are 6 molex in total, you just looked at a set of 3.

Haha. Sorry this is puzzling to me.

I thought those go to the fans and not to the power.

I'm thinking if a fan takes only 3 watts, it can handle at least 4.

Just switched from a CM Stacker 830 (Got it on launch) to a Switch 810 biggrin.gif

http://smg.beta.photobucket.com/user/bmx420/library/Im%20sorry%20I%20didnt%20do%20this%20sooner

I'm so ashamed of the mess in the old case tongue.gif


Thoughts / Suggestions?


Edit: I was thinking about getting the NZXT LED Light strip, can that be plugged directly in to a 3 pin on the Motherboard? Thanks

Nope. It plugs in a pci slot and has a 4 pin molex power plug.

If that's for your controller,

No need to pay attention to my post, as it seems that only one molex from the PSU plugs into the back of your controller.


Several of the higher wattage Lamptrons have a short pair of large gage wires coming off the circuit board to a molex connector, that then has smaller gage wires going on to 2 more molex connectors so that the current load can be shared by up to 3 pairs of pins with all connectors connected.


Sorry if I got you confused,


Your's wouldn't be the first controller to loose all it's magic smoke and die, sometimes it's just a bad controller, but it could be bad splitter cables or fan wires pinched and shorting to the case.

Always best to try each bit of cabling run from a PSU, (which has short circuit protection and will simply fail to start if shorted) before you put a controller in the circuit, which then becomes a very expensive fuse in the event of a short.

Made some new cables and sleeved them (GPU)



GPU and CPU are idling at 21C and 22C respectively with ambient temps at 21C in the room. Water in the Res (right after coming out of the CPU) stays at 25.

Under load -

GPU Max - 35
CPU Max - 36 ~ 37


All rads in Push, pull to be added in the future (hate paying for fans)

Hello guys!

I'm doing a new build and I purchased a NZXT 810 Switch case (Gunmetal)

I'm going air cool.

I purchased 3 additional Corsair AF 140mm fans.

I was wondering if this can be done:

Move the STOCK Front and Rear 140mm fans and put them on top as exhaust. Since it only comes with 1.

Install the 3 Corsair AF140mm in front and one in rear.

Is this possible and is there a guide for this? Is it pretty straight forward?

I wanna do this because I want to match all 3 fans on top and match the two front ones. =)

or Replace all fans?

It is also recommended get the bottom fans?

or replace all stock fans?

Regards,

I would just get three extra nzxt 140's, they're pretty good airflow wise and not very noisy at all. I wouldn't worry about doing fans on the bottom, it's more of a radiator mount anyways.

EDIT: Didn't read correctly, you already have the corsair fans, I would match the rear and top since those are the ones that you will see, unless you remove drive cages.

Hey there,

Am I going to have any trouble fitting a XSPC EX 280 in the roof of the 810?
