You should be able to use the multimeter to determine the pulse (control) wire as well.

Thanks electrocuter. Will come back to this when I test original parts in few weeks.
Sorry I changed my earlier post while you were responding.

Don't know if you saw but aq d5 pump adaptor is now 9/21. Date changed again

Ahh okay. When you get around to it, just be sure to be careful; one of my friend's father lost all feeling in his nose for life due to getting too close to a capacitor once.

Yep don't want to mess with psu cover being open for now. FYI: I did get it confirmed that both cougar and sanace have same pin settings for standard motherboard connectors.
I believe EVGlA changed to mini connector for their layout. So going color for color from cougar wire to EVGA mini fan connector "would" work.

Electrocutor: I did this today. Couldn't wait when I saw the following in the sheet included with power supply.

I can run the fan without any load by turning DIP switches 1 and 4.

It started to blink at the back and thats when I realized also you have to enable DIP Switch 5 for Switches to be enabled.

Tested the wires to make sure they correct. black was ground, red at 11.66 V; control (brown) around 3.6V and rpm (yellow) was around 0.9 V.

Don't have Mini-GPU fan connector or method to crimp so I decided to solder Cougar wires to original PSU mini fan connector:

Put some heatshrink around each solder

Put a black heat shrink around all of the that above (forgot to take a shot). You can see other end of the MDPC heat shrink in shot below..

Fan is SO MUCH quieter than San ACE. I would say less than half at 100% load.

Running as assembled. One afterthought, don't be generous in length I left an inch more on the cabling and had a hard time putting cover back on. Make it the same length as original.

Got a CaseLabs PSU Holder and put the rubber tape and exacto knifed it out:

Shot from under without the PSU weight bringing it down:

Look at that beauty from EVGA...Runs with no connections..No need to jump start or put load:

The 12 AWG Cable. You can see the LED at the back at the moment it is green, as it is running (sorry flash since no white light there..messed up shot)
7953207672_1588645369_z.jpg

In Off mode, the LED is red. If issues it will blink.

nice.
post #68 of 1388
I'm glad the whole thing went easily for you. Are you planning to put a mesh or cage or something over the fan to ward away any stray wires?

No. becuase caselabs has a mesh on the cover that goes on. No point of 2 meshes. Atleast that was the original plan when I cut out the original evga fan gril.

Here's a shot with the CaseLabs Cover/Mesh.

One thing...How come I don't have Black screws for the Mounting the PSU at the back. Should have come from CaseLabs or EVGA?
Anyone with CaseLabs or EVGA Supernova..can you confirm if you have Black PSU Mounting screws..?

Annoying little thing...have to ask now CaseLabs and EVGA....Maybe I jsut can't find them in the big mess in the house.
