Nine Hundred Fans

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if the the two LED fans in the front of the case can be rewired for 3-pin motherboard control of fan speed? Or maybe replaced with similarly looking black OEM fans with blue LED? Or wire managed so that the 3-speed control can be accessed outside the case without bustin' it open just to change fan speed?

If there is no yellow wire then no, plus if fans are designed to be connected thru a molex its recommend to keep it that way as they may draw too much power from the mobo. Also they are Tri Cools fans so they are controllerable.

Most fans need less than 2w and most mobo fan header should be able to handle it fine. Just don't plug in ultra high CMF fans like Deltas into the mobo though. The Molex connector is just for ease.

elemings, if you want to use your mobo for fan control... you need to get a black OEM fans with blue LED with a fan sensor. You can tell by their third yellow wire which provides data to the motherboard.
Once again...

Is anyone using these adapters to plug the two LED case fans into mobo fan control?

Im using adaptors for speed monitoring, but you cant control the RPM's from the mobo. Just use the little switch. Ive got min draped out of a PCI slot blanking plate.

So you can at least monitor the fan speeds. Good to know. I was (am) hoping the fan speeds can be controlled automatically rather than manually via those little switches.
