[OFFICIAL] ROG Maximus V Owners Club - Page 255

post #2541 of 4012
Hi guys,

I have an Asus Maximus V Formula board, and I am trying to plan my case fans before I setup a water cooling system!

My question is regarding the PWM control of this board and of AI Suite/FanXpert. I see that
CPU_FAN
CPU_OPT
OPT_FAN1
OPT_FAN2
OPT_FAN3

All have PWM pins as stated on page 1-41 of my manual


So, if I install groups of PWM fans onto each of those headers using a Swiftech 8-way PWM splitter, that draws power from a 12V molex, will I be able to control the rpms of each PWM header from the bios or from FanXpert?


I plan to run 3 sets of fansm with different fans in each (to match the rpms they'll run at)
4x radiator fans = Noctua NF-F12 (120mm PWM)
3x front case fans = Noctua NF-S12A (120mm PWM)
3x exhaust fans = Noctua NF-A15 (140mm PWM) or Scythe Kazemaru 2 (140mm non-PWM)
1x pump

If this is not going to work, then I will start looking into a dedicated fan controller. frown.gif




And oh yes, add me!


Thanks in advance!

I'm sure someone more experienced in that field can help you out. Until then welcome to the club! Doc may take a few minutes to update.. We don't discriminate on usernames.. Even if you are a Dragon Emperor tongue.gif

Dragon,
Sorry it seems Noctua fans don’t like the new Swiftech splitter. I posted in the H220 owners thread that I could not get them to work. I ended up with two NF-F12 up top on the included splitter to the top CHA fan header, the other top NF-12 to the left side CHA fan, and the bottom two NF-12 on the bottom CHA fan header. I could never get the Swiftech splitter to work with the Noctua fans and adjusting bios so I just didn’t use it.

I have my NF-A14 case fans plugged into a basic splitter that came with my case and use the included LNA adapter to keep them quiet. I like quiet fans, so everything is set to low rpm.

I haven’t tried fan expert because I don’t have AI suite installed, maybe it will work, you may just have to try it. Emailing Swiftech might get you a better answer.

Ya know, I've been really hung up on setting up the fans so that their RPMs would raise and lower depending on temperature, that I never even considered leaving them at a static speed. That certainly is an option if the Noctuas can keep my radiator cool, even while silent. smile.gif
I will post my findings regarding my experiences with PWM fan controlling with this board, and fanXpert, once I have my fans.


Say, I know this is OT for this thread, but as one who has experience with the NF-F12's, have you also tried any of the Gentle Typhoons to compare the noise?

Say, I know this is OT for this thread, but as one who has experience with the NF-F12's, have you also tried any of the Gentle Typhoons to compare the noise?

You should be fine with those splitters - just test them out first since they make that price-point with some questionable QC - I've read many people's posts that had a problem with a miswire or disconnected wire in their harnesses. I use them (the 3-pin not the PWM) and have no problems. If you read some of the reviews on FCPU page for them a couple of people claim to be running 9 fans + pump control off a single CPU header (for signal of course - they're still powered by the 12V connection via molex 4-pin).

As far as the Gentle Typhoons - I didn't do a direct comparison because I decided prior to placing my order for fans that I wasn't interested in A) painting the Noctua's or B) having beige/brown as part of my color scheme. The GT's gray was much more suited to my purposes, though I considered painting the blades black. I have run Noctua fans in a couple of systems over the year and I have to say they are fantastic for airflow:noise ratio - however, that being said the AP13s I got are completely silent have great static pressure for such slow fans (but sadly are no longer available). If you got the AP15's you'd definitely want to get a fan controller as they will definitely be audible at full speed. At a guess if they were reduced to somewhere around 1000RPM they too would be completely silent.

Of possible interest are these reviews by Martin: 50 fan roundup, and more importantly this one - where the AP15 and the NF-F12 are compared directly to each other. In that review, the GT AP15 was the clear winner as far as sound was concerned, but was dead even with the AP15 as far as airflow was concerned.

What do you guys think? I have been looking for a case and havent found anything that really caught my eye. well this did. although there are things I do not like about it. The interior is kinda plain. I would have to do a bit of modifying and line it with some matte black ceramic paint.


This site says it is discontinued, but there is one for sale somewhere.
