^^^ I do love this scheme as well. I was reading through that build thread the other day, it is very nicely done.
post #11773 of 12512
Hey guys I need some help with the fans. I have quite the odd setup but bare with me and hopefully someone can help me out here.

Currently I have an h100i gtx in push pull. One half of the radiator is using a push pull configuration using noctura nf-f12 fans while the other half is a push pull stock sp120l. On the front of the case I'm using the stock sp140l fans that ship with the case and the exhaust fan is a noctura a14. Now with that said I'm looking for the best way to control each fan. I'm using a Maximus viii hero motherboard and would like to know if I should put both from fans on a splitter and power them together while the exhaust fan uses its own header. I'm pretty sure that would be optimal there. The real question involves should I use the corsair 100i gtx for fan control at all? I could use the 2 CPU pins and split the two f12 fans on one and the sp120l on another while not using the corsair pin connector at all. Or I could use the corsair connector and run spitters on each so I would be running all 4 fans from the corsair link output. I really have no idea which would be better. Anyone have any advice on this?

I would suggest avoiding corsairs program/setup entirely and use something like this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/modmytoys-4-pin-power-distribution-pcb-4-x-3-pin-4-x-2-pin-block.html#!prettyPhoto

Assuming you're okay with the noise they make, It'll just put the fans all at 100%...

If the noise your fans make annoys you then ignore this post.

I appreciate the response but yes I have it connected to my tv in my living room so fans at 100% would be out of the question. As far as the fan connected you showed it is only 3 pin so wouldn't allow for any PWM control of the fans which would only allow for 100% so I really appreciated the response but since the fan control on the Maximus viii hero is so easy to use I would like to use the motherboard pin outs and set my own custom fan curve for each.

I just don't know if I should use the h100igtx fan output at all or just leave it blank and use only the motherboard. (If that's even an option)

I'd suggest on board, but don't put two fans on one slot, you'd be better off with a fan controller that that point
kinda strange for the fans to be so bothersome when they're that far away

The stock fans for the h100i are insanely loud. The rest not so much but since I spent all my budget on 2 989 TIs I'm slowly adding good fans I can afford them. Hence the mismatch.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, for some reason I was thinking the fans off the case, yeah those are loud lol.
I was also thinking of the 120mm fans included on the 240air.... no the 140mm ones on the 540 air, at least I think the 540 came with 140mms, I forget...

Is there any reason why you use both fans (noctua and corsair) for the radiator?
doing a push/pull config rarely ever gets more than 3C difference, and that's assuming all 4 fans are the same
I wouldn't even think the corsair fans would be helping the air flow with your setup.
