Not Enough Voltage?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I recently purchased a Raidmax Agusta (No hate on this case! Cooling is awesome on this thing!) and it has two stock fans for the top I replaced them with two of the Enermax Red LED TB silent fans (They push about 53 CFM on the spec sheet) so I hook them up to the integrated controller so in total I have 2 stock white LED fans and the two Enermax fan. However when I crank up the fans they don't seem to be pushing much air. But there pushing air, just not as much as I hopped for when I put them on the regular Molex connector. So is it just that the voltage is lower because I have two attached other attached fans or is it just me? If it has something todo with the power delivery then can I rig something to the input power to the controller so I can have a extra 4pin molex attached instead of 1? I may just detach the fan pins and put them on the motherboard maybe?

Often the top setting on a controller may not really be 100%, but it shouldn't be far off. If it's just voltage control, you could check with a multimeter what the settings do.

Did you check the fans off molex before or after putting them in the case? Plug the Enermax fans back into molex to double check if you want.
