[SOLVED] Need help setting up NZXT phantom 410 fan controller.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
First time system builder here, recently bought this case to replace my CM elite 430. Everything worked out fine, except that i can't seems to get the fan controller to work and the manual doesn't specify how the fan controller cables should be connected. I'm 4 fans in total, 2 120mm default fan intake, 1 default top 140mm and 1 120mm from my old case.

450
There are 6 of those small connectors, 2 of them already connected to 2 of the fans by default and 4 of them currently not connected to anything. And there is the big molex connector, it is connected to the PSU and one of the fans.
Tried changing the configuration of the fan connections, but it doesn't seems to work. The rear fan from my old case still sound as loud as it was running at 12V (This fan normally runs at 7v back in my old case, and it's pretty quiet at 7v)

If anyone can help, i'd appreciate it. Sorry that i can't provide any pictures but if you need me to describe further, say so.

You need to plug a molex from your power supply into the molex on the fan controller. That gives power to all the fans.

If that doesn't work try using a different connector, use one that you know works (one from another fan or something)

If that still dosen't work you may need to get a new fan controller. You can get then from free of NZXT (I had to get a new one because mine was making a weird noise)

Just email then: service@nzxt.com and state you problem, put your shipping address in the email and they should reply withing a week or so.

It took about 2 weeks until i received my replacement one.

For the meantime just plug the fan directly onto your motherboard.

Good luck smile.gif

All of the fans are connected via the 3 pin connectors currently, still doesn't work. Also, is the change instantaneous when it's switched from high to low? And is the change noticeable (as in, does the RPM of the fan dips down when it's on low? Using the stock fans that came with the case, except for the rear fan). I'd still look for other solution, emailing them would be my last resort if everything else fails.

Also..is the NZXT forum down for anyone..? Can't seems to get into the website.

Hi all - great site with nice info. First time here. Putting together a Phantom 410 on an ASUS Sabertooth X79 LG2011 and had a question concerning adding a few more fans to my case. The X79 has plenty of spare fan plugins, but should I use some of the spare 4 - 3 Pin ones from the case instead? If I go directly to the mobo fan slots then those fans will not be controlled by the case controller correct? Thank you for your help.

Correct. But you can always buy a standalone fan controller and route all of your fans through that (though you would probably lose the functions of the top fan controller buttons).

EDIT: Whoops didn't realize how old this thread was. Sorry mods.

So, let me get this straight...I figured that the large molex went to the PSU. What about the four smaller plugs pictured at the top of this thread?
