btw what is a good air cooler for the board? please dont say AXP140 as its not available down my place. I'm currently using a samurai zz but it doenst seemed to keep the temps low enough to not require the fan spin up

Maybe a Samuel 17? http://www.prolimatech.com/en/products/detail.asp?id=157

Is there any reason why the fan headers on this motherboard would act differently. What I mean to say is I had my thermaltake water 2.0 performer hooked up to the cpu header as the manufacturer and everyone else recommended but my pump was making a horrible grinding noise, after days of frustration and about to send the thing in I decided to plug the fan into the cpu header and the pump into the chassis/system header and my pump does not make much if any noise anymore. But my fan cannot be adjusted much anymore, I can only get the rpm down to 1400 when the settings on the fan controllers are turned to 0%. It is revving at what it did at 60% on the system fan header. The fan can be adjusted to 100% which makes a lot of noise, but cannot be turned below 1400rpm, when it could go to 800rpm on the other header.

So what I have noticed is the cpu header sends either more power, or less controllable power in comparison to my system header. Is there any reason behind this?

Well one fan header is PWM and the other is voltage controlled, I believe that's what I read somewhere on [H].

For an AIO cooler what I would recommend is to run it for a while not mounted on the cpu, that way you can shake the bubbles out - I've done this for all my AIOs that I've used in past builds and I've never had any issues with noises.

It's generally best practice with the AIOs to run the pump off a 12V directly off the PSU, run the CPU fan directly off the header. I believe the CPU fan header is PWM and SYS is voltage controller.

Hope this helps!

You would typically want your AIO's pump to be running at full speed most of the time, you most likely heard grinding noises due to it running at lower speeds. If you prefer to run it through the CPU header, make sure you turn off any PWM or any motherboard control on the CPU header.

Confirmed by Asrock support team when I asked them how to connect a 3 pin fan to the mobo:
Quote:
CPU_FAN1 header only supports fan speed control with standard 4-pin fan.
You can connect the 3-pin fans to CHA_FAN1 header to regulate the speed.

Hmm i removed my board out of the case just now to fit in a new CPU cooler and I've found of the caps (circled in red) bent and out of place. It seemed slightly raised but the solder joints are fine and the legs are not broken however it does look like the legs has been yanked out slightly. I didn't take actual photos of it though

I'm wondering what function is that cap and how important it is and if it is enough for me to send it for RMA considering the board is less then a week old.


On the side note I'd confirm that the Noctua NH-U9B fits on the board if you cut part of the foam on the backplate and it fits in the SG08 if you replace the 180mm fan to a standard 25mm thick fan(stock 180mm is 30mm thick) which in my case is a 140mm Noctua.

Sad that the CPU fan header doesn't support voltage control while the chassis fan header does, now I have to rig a fan controller and maybe use the Corsair link as it fits in my redundant 3.25" bay so I can manage it via software of some sort.

Apparently is it not my CPU cooler nor fan that is the issue but rather the crappy onboard fan controller loves to spin up the fans unnecessarily that is causing the extra noise but none the less I've swapped for the Noctua for now and will see how it actually goes. I prefer top down just because it cools the rest of the motherboard while a tower sink don't

Dont worry, I realized that exact cap was bent and touching the other one when I was messing with my computer. I thought I did it, but knew there was no way I had actually done it. I just slightly pulled on it and got it away from the other by less than a mm and have not had problems since. I would either leave it alone, or man up and do what I did tongue.gif

Well touching is fine, mines slightly yanked off the board. I did bend it back in place though but it is still slightly raised. If it is an old board then I wouldn't have cared as much but I guess I'd live with it for now but it might be too late when i discover something as this computer will be wrapped up and wont be turned on again till xmas time when I actually have time to screw around with it and put it to work.

The CPU header should have software support through programs like Speedfan. You'd just have to set your BIOS to run the CPU header at full speed and then control the fan voltage once you've booted up.
