I bought 2x CM Jetflo fans about 3 months ago.
Used them for about two months.
One day I boot my PC up and the fans aren't spinning.
I thought something was blocking the fans, but nope.
Reset my BIOS / Overclocks etc, still nope.
Took them out, put them back in, still nope.

tldr; 2x Jetflo won't spin up, but the LED's on the fans turn on.

What do?

plug directly to 12v, most likely a dead fan though.

Heya, long story short i'm looking for a cheap and effective way to control fans. I guess a 7v to 12v switch would do - but i need to control half a dozen fans. What's the best way to go about doing that?

I'm in the UK and one of the best sites for buying would be www.amazon.co.uk (maybe www.scan.co.uk or www.overclockers.co.uk) if there is any particular product to link. Thanks for any input!

What are your HDD temps?

@Curleyyy
Sounds like the fan are dead. Have you tried different fan header or using a moles to fan adapter?

Doyll,

My max HDD temps are as follows 33 degrees for my OS HDD, 26 for my 1 TiB data drive and
28 for my SSD Readyboost drive. The 1 TiB HDD has a 92x25mm fan blowing directly on it.

I read somewhere that operating temp is one of the prime determinants of HDD life.

Doyll, if I were to stack my Thermaltake 200mmx30mm weak willy fans (say on the side panel
port), would that increase the static pressure enough to make them worthwhile using?

Sorry, not sure how to do that.

Tried all the different headers. Didn't think of the molex though, I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Purchase the Lamptron FC5 v2, most stores have them in stock between $30 and $45. Supports multiple fans with lots of power.

Those are good cool temps. Most HDDs can run 40-50c with no problems. Two of mine run 34-43c and another runs 37-44c and have for years. (knock on wood)

The last testing of HDD life I read is old, Google's "Failure Trends in a Large Disk Drive Population". But the results indicated temperature was rarely a problem.

Agree with doyll, in most home PC's (OC'd ones included) heat is not an issue for HDD's. Vibration is the killer. I'd sooner use the cool air on a component that gets hot.

That looks good, but i don't have a 5.25" bay in the air 540; kinda awkward for something like that

Could use the Aquareo 5 LT USB.

Has anyone tried out the EK Vardar FF5? It has pretty nice static pressure and looks pretty solid with double ball bearings, but I haven't used them before.
