Its not a loud buzzing, but still audible if you focus on it.

Im triying to isolate the vibrations or something, but i dont know what to do frown.gif

Thank you for the support!

Take off the front cover while the PC is running and shove a piece of foam in there while its making noise (if you can). I was able to do it while running (using Pro-M) and shoved a small piece of foam along the side of the HDD if I recall correctly. I wrapped the foam with electrical tape to prevent it from breaking apart or making a mess. I also did similar to the top radiator cage so I don't have to screw it in place. Not worth a permanent fix really. Never seen nor heard from again tongue.gif.

If you think thats enough, then it can be worth trying.
But in my experience, so is HDD vibration caused by the screws/tray moving with the HDD. Meaning that locking the up and downward movements might not be enough, as you need to account for sideways as well. Plus if you have enough drives or one that shakes a lot, the hole HDD cage might vibrate, meaning you need to isolate it as well.

It's a Pro M. It can hold two drives - period. It is a common problem with the particular case that the user is asking about, and is a case that you have not used and don't seem to have even looked at the layout of before making suggestions. While you are making some suggestions that are fundamentally good, that don't apply to the Pro M.

Yeah unless you want to mount the drives on those sort-of free hanging mounts biggrin.gif.

Hey do you guys have any experience with the Phanteks PWM fan hub?

http://phanteks.com/PH-PWHUB.html

I believe the standalone unit is the same one they include with the Evolv, minus the plastic cover. I've got 6 fans connected to one. 3 are EK Vardar and the other 3 are the included Phanteks 140mm fans. I know they're different RPM fans, and this isn't ideal, but I was under the impression that the only RPM signal sent back to the motherboard was that of the unit hooked up to the FAN1 port.

Based on the motherboard's (ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO) monitoring, it looks like that's the case. However, I can't get the thing to boot without turning the CPU_FAN monitoring off entirely. It's strange, because the moment I get into BIOS I can see the "fan" reporting around 1600 RPM... the low alarm was configured for 200 RPM and still wouldn't boot.

Anyone run into anything like this?

That is not uncommon for many fan hubs. I had the same happen with the Phanteks (and others) when using certain fans, I have also had ASUS boards do the same thing when certain fans were hooked up directly to the MB. So, nothing to worry about, I have found it to be more an ASUS issue than fan hub issue.

I'm not super concerned about it. It's been running fine like this for a week or so now.

That said, I would like to be able to turn the monitoring on in case the fans did fail sometime in the future. Have you ever come to a resolution?

I'm planning to do a bit of testing later, after updating the BIOS to the current version, but I'm just not sure why it's even happening since the motherboard seems to get a proper RPM signal as soon as I get into BIOS...

That is why I chaulk it up to an ASUS issue. I have had it happen with fans connected directly to the CPU header. Check your fan speed warning in BIOS and make sure it is set to the lowest speed, that may help.

My resolution wasn't really a resolution at all. With my current configuration I have a PWM D5 on the CPU header, and the hub connected to a chassis header set to PWM mode, so it is a non-issue. In the past I simply disabled the warning. I would clearly be able to tell if all of my fans weren't running, I wouldn't need a BIOS warning to tell me that. Also, the warning will only tell you if the fan on CH1 fails since that is the only fan that is monitored by the hub.

You have a good point there, about it only reporting the failure of one fan. Guess I'll just leave it off. Thanks!
post #15460 of 19221
I have a dumb question guys... I want to replace the front fans in my Enthoo primo, but I don't want to lose the LED capability. Are those permanently attached to the front 140MM fans that come with it, or can I use them with a different set of fans.

Thanks,

Mike
