I pm'ed you about the fan controller debacle I am having. For everybody else, my h220 came with an 8 way splitter and I bought an extra one. I planned on have the 2 front and 2 bottom fans on channel 1. The gpu, rear, and top exhaust fan on channel 2, and the 4 rad fans on channel 3. So I hooked everything up and they just run at full speed with no control. Swiftechs website does say that not all fan controllers will work with their pwm splitter. To test I individually wired fans to the channels and had full control. So now I am looking fan splitters that wil work with a Lamptron FC5-V2 and be able to set it up as I described above. I was a little frustrated with the fan controller so I decided to temporarily run a couple cables and see what happened. At least some good news came out of tonight

*Snip

I'm working up multiple replies right now, it will take me a bit to answer all your questions (here and in your PM), but I'll have some answers for you in a little bit.



EDIT 1:

I'll be doing a couple of edits to this post to answer your questions as I can track down the answers, so you may want to refresh to re-read the post (if you are reading this early Wednesday morning anyway)…

OK, first answer, about the Swiftech splitter, because it is a PWM splitter, it will not work with a manual fan controller. PWM fans (and splitters) do not work on the normal voltage adjustment like regular fans, the PWM signal is a pulse signal and controls the speed of the van in pulses or bursts, rather than through voltage manipulation. Think of it as turning the fan on and off hundreds of times a second to get the right speed rather than lowering the voltage (if you’re really interested, there is an interesting article HERE about different types of fans and how they work).

Because of this, PWM fans and fan splitters will not allow for the manipulation of fan speeds via a standard fan controller. Unfortunately, what this means to you is either you would need to rewire the power cables for the splitter (I’ll explain how below) or buy a new splitter.

If you do want to rewire the power cable, what you would need to do is get rid of the PWM wire and just run with the 3 main wires (power, ground and tach). IIRC, these should be the yellow (power), black (ground) and green (tach), assuming of course that Swiftech follows the standard wire color scheme (which I’m sure they probably do). Basically, you would just need a 3 pin connector (you could just cut one off an old fan if you have any lying around), and set the wires up (from left to right, with the notches on the connector facing you) black, yellow, green. This is really not too hard to do, but can be kind of a pain because the wires are so small. As this is your first build (and rewiring connections is typically more advanced), this may not be the best option, but if you think you can handle it, dive right it, I’m sure you can!

For ease of use with the fan controller, if you are just going to buy a new splitter, I would recommend something like THIS. They are very basic, very cheap, and work well. Then all you have to do is run a 3 pin connector from the fan controller to the splitter, and you have full control.

As for the NZXT fan splitter (you mentioned in the PM), can you post a link to it so I can look at it? They make a ton of different ones and I need to know exactly which one you are working with in order to best advise you on how to handle it.




EDIT 2 (copied from the PM I just sent you):

OK, what you need is THIS, a 4 pin female to 3 pin female adapter wire. The problem is, they are not a standard cable, so getting them is a bit pricy for what they are (Performance-PCs.com, the link I gave you, make them custom, and they are the only place I've seen that does). I tried looking on Amazon, but didn't find anything. You may want to check out any other sites you shop from, but just make sure it is a 4 pin female to 3 pin female wire and it will work. Just plug the 3 pin end into the fan controller and the 4 pin into the splitter and you're all set.

Thank you. I was actually just about to ask you about the modmytoys 3 pin 5 way splitter. I will just order a couple of those. I get packages from frozen cpu in 1-2 days so I will order it from there. Also I am assuming I will need to order a female to female 3 pin cable to hook it up to the fan controller.

OK, I’ll try to make all my links to frozencpu from now on, it is just loading really slow today for some reason. I had this reply typed out 5 minutes after you posted your last post, the rest of the time I’ve been waiting on frozen’s website to load the pages I wanted to link! Anyway…


Yes, if you are going with the 5 way splitter (like THIS), you’ll need to pick up one 3pin female to 3 pin female cable (HERE) for each splitter.

LOL. That is what is taking me so long to resond to your PM's. I linked that cable from performance pcs because I couldnt get the frozencpu page to load. Ok I will order that stuff and it should be here friday at the latest.

Do me a favor and remove those stickers off the PSU they are driving me nuts! Lol Also, see if you can get the Titans green to turn red wink.gif - build looks good - look forward to seeing how far you push it thumb.gif

Already in the works. I ordered gloss sticker back paper and are using these instead. If there is a way to change the gtx to red I will do it.

Sorry for the bad pic quality but it was late and I only had my iphone. Once everything is done I will take some better pictures. I changed up the ax1200 stickers for some custom ones. I used high gloss sticky back paper. The rest of my stuff should be arriving today and I should have everything buttoned up tonight. I am planning on booting up tomorrow. also, disregard the green tape as that will be taken off once I confirm the SSD is working.

That is looking very tidy, sir! Especially for your first build! Nicely done!! thumb.gif
