Ooooooh nice! That's a lot of stuff to cram in there. When I had all my items still in the box laid across the room and then I looked at the case, I thought how the hell is all this going to fit in there! biggrin.gif

Can't wait to see the build. Too bad that 280 top doesn't drop in. Kind of defeats the purpose of it being removable lol.

Yeah, thought I'd cram a fat one in there. cheers.gif The original plan was a Phobya 200mm Extreme, but i shied away from that... Don' t know why...

I'm happy with it! I'm also planning a trip to see the wife next weekend, so a little relaxation to go with my relaxation! devil.gif

Yeah, it really kinda dawns slowly if it is shipped in slowly, but carrying three loads of boxes up there today made me thing "*** this will NOT all fit..."
I'm considering just going ahead and removing the top rad and drop-in, and leaving it out until the very end.
I have to paint all those fans too, so that's going to be a giant pain in the buns...



Thank you for all the kind words everybody! more sweet lovin' tonight!


Thanks - T

Ok, so turtle-turd here bought ALL PWM FANS for his build, and then bought a rheobus fan controller, and then destroyed the boxes the fans came in last night.

doh.gif

buttkick.gif

So what's my option?
The MSI motherboard only has the two PWM splitters, so I was thinking I'd just use this fella...

Here's the back of the Sunbeam fan controller:



[c/o HardwareTech]

This allows the fans to be controlled by either the PWM signal from the motherboard or the potentiometers on each line.

Now I think I already know the answer to this, but you never want to plug a PWM (4-pin) fan into a 12v (3-pin) header, do you?
Meaning I don't want to use the fans I have (all Akasa Viper PWMs) on the fan controller...

Thanks - T

You can just plug the three headers that are not the PWM sensor into the 3pin connector and it will work like a normal case fan. Just leave the PWM header empty. I've done that many times before. Be sure to look up the pinout to see which is the PWM, but the PWM is on one of the ends.

Here is a pic:

If you have PWM fans then there is no need for a fan controller. Solder the PWM control wires together, solder the power wires together and power from a molex, then bring out one tach wire and the shared PWM wire to the motherboard header and use the motherboard (or speedfan) to control the fan speed.

But yes you can do it the way you want to, like suby said just plug it in and it'll work. FWIW the rheobus didn't go as low in rpm as I'd like when using PWM control. My AP15s only went to 1300rpm, while they went to ~500rpm with manual voltage control.
