LOL no no I meant like if the Controller said Fans 1 - 4 I thought it could only do 4 max wasn't aware that you could group.


And yeah, I figured as much , just wanted to confirm, gonna suck having it upside down tbh. Though point @ the side it will still be blocked so either way isn't it sort of an issue?

Actually TBH pressure in the stock arrangement is probably equal but even in my previous case that had a serious filter still built up dust.

That's a good point. Maybe, then, it's just naturally falling in from the top...

Yeah, I guess that filter does impede a bit. But, you had dust even with a filter on your intake? Why, dust, why must you do this?!

Ohhhh, I see. Thank you for the clarification. Great to hear the longer cables are now the default, smile.gif

I wana get this but i'm a little slow on understanding how to install it.
It seems to have a pwm connector but i don t think thats for connecting to the mobo. I randomly read someone on this forum said to alter a connector to fit a molex.

Anyway, I need my hand held for a moment and can someone tell me everything. Could I install this with power connected to the psu? What are the steps for proper connection? Is
this a good buy or bad buy?
These look to be just like.the ones I have/linked a few pages back. They can be wired directly to your psu. The pics of what you linked appear to have the black plug with wires attached for the control box to plug in here:
and you would need to connect a molex plug on the other end to plug into your psu. It is just a 12v+ & a 12v- connection. The plug/wire that looks kind of like a fan plug is actually the ir sensor for the remote and the other flat plug is for the strip itself.
Sorry for the crap cell pics bit it should give an idea.

Fan controller for this case: highly recommend the Sunbeam Rheosmart 6 as it does great vertically, and gives option of both PWM control auto and individual manual control. Just hard to buy and requires some extra effort on install.

Thanks for the info. The part where the dc plug originates from is going to be connected to a molex female plug? So I wouldnt actually need to mod anything.

where do you keep your IR sensor?
That back space is going to get a little more crowded now!
post #2056 of 12432
Yep, thats the part you hook the molex onto to then plug into one of the psu's molex extensions.
The sensor you kind of have to experiment with on where to put it so it can get a decent signal. You can also run that wire outside the case if you want as its not a very strong signal, but that remote is pretty cool.

or

PCI-E

I assume the PCI-E ones cuz the ones I already have installed from my psu say PCI-E and the pictures of the EPS doesnt seem to match correctly but I want to be sure.

And the 6 pin are defaulted to only one choice.

You want the PCI-E.

EPS is used to power the motherboard - CPU.
