I just got an Enthoo Evolv Tempered Glass and could really use some help with how to connect all the fans.

Right now I've done the following:

The 2 stock front fans are connected to the PWM hub on the case
The PWM hub on the case is connected to CPU_FAN on the motherboard (Asus Z77 Sabertooth)
I have a H100 radiator on top with 2x Corsair ML120 Pro LED fans. The 2 fans are connected to a Y splitter which is then connected to CPU_OPT on the motherboard
The rear exhaust fan is a Corsair ML140 Pro LED which is connected to CHA_FAN3 on the motherboard

Right now when I turn on the computer I get a CPU FAN error and the two fans connected to the radiator do not work at all. All the other fans seem to be working OK since I can see them spinning.

My main question is what would be the ideal way to connect the fans so that everything works well together?

I've also purchased a RGB lighting kit from Cablemods which I have not tried to setup yet. Does anyone have any experience with this kit and know the best way to set it up in this case? I'm not sure if you can get the kit to sync together with the lighting on the front and power button of the case...

Thanks and sorry for asking so many things at once biggrin.gif

Switch the pwm hub to the cpu_opt and make shure you dont connect the pwm and the 12v to that hub only on of the two. and put the corsair'cooler on the cpu_fan header

Doing this makes the Phanteks PWM 'controlled' hub into nothing but a simple fan splitter. Not what it is designed to be. If you are assuming the CPU_OPT fan header is not PWM, this will likely control the case fans with variable voltage.

I have recently bought the same case and LED strip. You can see my setup a few posts back. I have the 60 cm magnetic kit with rf remote. I have placed the LED strip from just under the rear fan across the bottom of the case. I placed it as close to the glass as possible so you can't directly see the LED's when sitting a bit in front of the case.

I plugged everything into the case PWM hub, then the case PWM hub into CHA_FAN3. I plugged the H100 Corsair pump into CPU_FAN with no fans connected. Then I had to disconnect the SATA 12v because it made my fans run at 100% for some reason. This seems to have worked and I can control the fans either through BIOS or Asus Thermal Radar.

That looks great. Was there anything in the case to connect the LED strips to or was it only the SATA for power? Was hoping they would sync with the case power lights but if not that's ok smile.gif

Strange, with the evolv case there used to be an white atx version, now it seems to be replaced by a silver version also the TG edition is same.

To answer your questions....the SATA made your fans run at 100% because they were being PWM controlled, and you had no PWM signal (PWM is only present on the Z77 Sabertooth on the two CPU headers). By disconnecting the SATA, you are literally using the hub as nothing more than a Y-connector, with the fans being voltage controlled.

Big question here - did you have a fan on channel 1 of the hub? Without it, the MB will get no feedback on speed or there being a fan connected.

You have a couple of things going wrong here that are easily fixed. First, you are attempting to put your rad and intake fans on the same curve.....but for some reason were using two different headers to do it. Connect the two ML120 to channel 1+2 on the hub, the case fans on 3+4. Connect the hub's PWM to the CPU header, and re-connect the SATA connector. In BIOS, make sure your CPU header is configured for PWM, and set Q-Fan to "Turbo". After booting, run Thermal Tuning in Thermal Radar. This will set the actual lowest and highest points that the hub will run at and not allow it to run with a PWM signal that produces no fan spin. Then simply set up your curve in Thermal Radar to your liking.

You may still encounter an error on boot for the CPU fan even with them working (this is an oddity with ASUS boards and the hub), and you can simply turn off the warning in the boot section of your BIOS.

I have used the hub with Z77, Z87, Z97 and X99 Sabertooths, so I understand what you are going through. It seems odd and frustrating, but letting Thermal Radar do what it is intended to do, and a slightly more aggressive curve setting in the BIOS takes care of it.

I don't believe the white was ever actually available for retail sale. It was shown pre-release, then vanished in favor of the silver.

Hi all,

I was thinking of getting the Enthoo Luxe for a build with 4x blower-style gpus. I noticed the Luxe has 8 expansion slots, would it be possible if all gpus are 2 slot?

Also would getting a Primo prove a better decision?

I really love the look of the Enthoo line, would be very nice if it can accommodate 4 gpus in blower style.

Any thoughts on this would be very appreciated!

You will have heat issues with 4 cards and they will be LOUD, unless you are water cooling. Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mjy6-_mtGtE

Only the SATA power. You can't sync them with the case lights I think.
