I made a fan boo boo...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently disassembled my rig and I tried to keep my AP-15 and AP-14 GTs separated. I think I did a pretty good job of it.

However, I forget which pile was the AP-15 and which was the AP-14! frown.gif

I may have also mixed up one fans with another one of the fans so there may be an AP-15 in the AP-14 pile and vice versa. I have about 14 fans and half of them are of each type and I took the labels off for aesthetic purposes a while back.

Is there an easy way to test which fan is which without having to buy any tools or plugging them in? frown.gif

Well,ap-14's run full at 1450rpm,ap-15's run 1850,so only option is to plug them into your mainboard or something and see what they run full speed. thumb.gif

No stickers?

Then you'er screwed. No other option rather than plugging them one by one and checking at which speed do they spin.

Number them. Maybe a white marker on the edge of the frame. Plug them in. Write down the rpm of each fan.

And as you are doing that you may discover something interesting.

How do I know which RPM they will be running at just by plugging them in? Do I have to plug them into a special slot on the motherboard? Where do I go to check?

boot your rig to the bios,and on the power tab,you should see fan speed monitor,then you can plug a fan in while the rig is on,to see what speed its running,but be careful! thumb.gif
