post #2491 of 6915

Thanks for the response. Ok here is why I asked and I cant udnerstand anything.

 

I bought an Akasa FC. Six Fan controller. I had installed it to my previous case 2 days ago without any issues.

 

Than again 2 days ago I installed it to my brand new Corsair 800D case and my 2 Noctua NFp12 fans did not work with the fan controller (before they used to)

 

Also i realized that the fan controller lights on top of each 6 controllers were lit, however only 4 fans were connected. The other 2 lights were not supposed to lit.

 

And when i turned off the fans via the controller, the lights were still lit, although they are supposed to turn off themselves.

 

For 2 days I dealt with this problem and now i opeend my case again and saw that I mis matched P+ led and P- led. They were in each other's spot. Now i installed them to the correct parts and all my problems with the fan controller were solved.

 

Coincidence? or is there any logic behind this?

 

Also now my fans are working much louder when at max. When i had this problem the fan noise was not that high on max fan controller settings telling me that the fan controller was not working optimally.

That is Strange because your Fan Controller gets its power from a 4 pin Molex correct? That should come straight from a 12v leg on your PSU.
If anything your Case Power LED should have been Only thing affected.. scratches head... Good to hear you have solved though..

Hanover, what gadget are you using to monitor your goodies on the bottom right of your screenshots?

ps. How can I make sure I'm getting the most out of my RAM (Gskill F3-2400C10 4Gx2)

Thanks!

Its called open hardware monitor.. once installed right click on any sensor and choose add to gadget.. you can also re name any sensor to correspond to what the item actually is rather than say fan 5 you can rename to 200mm fan or whatever..

Does anyone else have issues throttling the speed of their CPU fans. I've got the fan profile of all my fans set to silent, and all of them run at about 800rpm idle except for my two CPU fans (plugged into the CPU and CPU_OPT fan headers), which constantly sit at 1400rpm. They're the exact same fan as the rest of my chassis fans. I've even tried setting a custom fan profile using the AI Suite software (Thermal Radar), but it has no affect. I've now got my two CPU fans plugged into the only two free fan headers available (chassis_3 and asst_1) where throttling works. Just wondering if this means my CPU fans have issues, or if I'm missing something?

Well I got my Sabertooth a few days ago and I'm absoultely loving it. Installed very easily.. the only issue I had was when installing the OS. Windows would not install to my main system drive until I disconnected my other drives. Other than that smooth sailing. No OC'ing as of yet as I dont really need to.

Have you tried Q Fan controll in your bios, I have my CPU fan dissabled because I have water cooling, Set it to silent in your bios.rolleyes.gif

Are there any VRM Waterblocks for this board? Or are they not needed?
post #2499 of 6915
Yes I do. It was kind of implied in my post. It's like the internal voltage regulator responsible for controlling the fans is not functioning for the CPU fan headers. I've cleared the CMOS and updated the BIOS.
