[Build Log] Evodot SM8 (i7 3930k Titan, Watercooled) - Page 11

No problem. So here is the 6 way that I might be using: Phobya 6 Way Fan Hub. This one has a molex power plug, so if you want one with a 3 pin power so you don't have to splice/branch wires out of a molex (which can look ugly if not done right), go with one of these: ModMyToys 5 Way Fan Hub. With this one, I find it easier to get all the fans to the controller you want since it is all 3 pin, and therefore easier to get your RPM monitoring. With the ModMyToys versions, be aware that if you connect all fans with the RPM wire, you just have to scrape the RPM line on the PCB away after the first fan so it doesn't try to monitor all 4+ fans RPM in one channel and go bonkers. Alternatively, you could use the ModMyToys 3 Way Fan Hub and branch your 4th fan off of the input side by the fan controller with 1 single 2 way y-splitter. Check my log for wiring details, or my photo gallery. If you have any questions about it, just hit me up man. thumb.gif

How would you hook the 6 way but upto a fan controller? Only has a power option.

I would like a 8 to one but not sure of 30W channel is enough for 8 AP-15's.

PPC's Order

Looks like all my stuff is here. I will have more details when I get home from the office but should be a update filled night. All blocks, fittings, TIM, Fans, and other goodies are here.

It would receive power through your fan controller, same as they would it you were to just plug them directly into your fan controller via a y-splitter. While you "could" run 8 AP-15's per channel on 30w, while running, the start up wattage/amperage would exceed 30w by ~5-6w. I am running 6 per channel on mine, and it comes out to ~24w per channel star up wattage.

So they wouldn't do well on 8 per channel?

I won't tell you that it isn't possible, or that you can't try it, but will I will tell you is the start up wattage exceeds the 30w per channel that your fan controller is rated for. As an electrician, I know better than to overload and/or over current anything, especially with the amount of heat that is produced by doing so. The heat sinks already get fairly warm without doing it, and it would only further add to the degradation of your controller. This would be an extreme case, but it is entirely possible if something is overloaded electrically that it can actually cause a fire. That is only for the start up wattage though, so it is a lot less likely to happen since the actual running wattage is a lot less (with 8 you would probably be close to maybe 11w running on the channel). Just a warning, but it is entirely up to you with what you deem "safe" in your eyes.

Todays Shipment



Fittings



Thermal Paste
I need some help which one AC5 or GELID that came with EK blocks



Updates to follow going to be putting the blocks on tonight. Thinking about getting clear tubing and going ice dragon just worried that the white will dye my blocks.

I would use Gelid's. AC5 is ancient and has cure time like LA traffic during rush hour. That is if you like to remount for best temps and don't mind waiting.

Also I wouldn't do 8 per channel either. Not a specialist in that dept like Addiction, but am paranoid. You got like 5 other channels anyways lol.
