The only bit the annoyed me about the review was that they knocked the PWM hub saying it was inferior than the hub that comes on the Phantom lines.
As far as i know, that hub only replicates the input signal across more fans, rather than converting a PWM signal from the mobo so that standard 3-pin fans can be used!

Edit - I've been away for two weeks on holday, so i have a load of posts to catch up on!

I think the issue here is that the Phanteks PWM hub is actual "first of its kind" technology, so unless you've been very tuned in to the development (like we have) it's really easy to mistake it for just another hub -- possibly even one that is inferior to what's already out there. One has to pay very close attention -- and then actually BELIEVE that it does what it says it does (because nothing has ever done this before) -- or else you'd just dismiss it as marketing hype.

I have a feeling when Phanteks releases the hub as a stand-alone accessory in 2014 it's going to be a game changer that nobody saw coming. Suddenly ANY fan can be PWM, that's gonna shake things up in the fan game. wink.gif

All this talk about the pwm fan hub, am I missing something cos mine doesn't work. I have tried 1 fan connected and plugged into motherboard no joy I then tried it plugged into psu via molex still no joy. I've noticed that it has been called not a normal fan hub, am I having a totally blonde moment and fudged the connection up ?

Do you have the 4 pin plugged into the CPU_FAN header on your mobo? (it needs to be)

Yes mate, for the pwm signal.

I agree that most have no idea what the Phanteks PWM hub is.

Don't know if PWM hub is regulating the voltage or sending 12v pulses to fans.

A mate builds PWM to analog curcuits with adjustment for balancing rpm to match other fans. They use 12v power from PSU and PWM signal from motherboard and can be built to power as may fans as you want.
Here's a 2x 4-way splitter on same PWM signal and molex power, speed balancing and rpm monitor on each set of 4 fans.
The blue pot on end is speed adjustment.
Wiring color code:
*Blue = PWM signal
*Yellow = rpm
*Red = 12v
*Black = ground

If anyone is looking for 30mm m3 screws for alphacool radiators I got a pack of 100 from amazon. They are philips head and just large enough to not need washers. They are metal in color but can be painted. I'll need about half of them so if anyone wants some let me know and you can pay for a stamp for me to send you some!

i found a front panel with a 4 pin PWM..
If you dont want the hub to be connected to the mobo.
Its called the Scythe Kama Panel 3.1
aleast it got the 4 pin at the back and some whrite it gives the signal like a real mobo 4 pin. intresting for me at least..

Wow, that's really interesting stuff. I'll check out his videos this weekend. smile.gif

p.s. omg, did I just say that? I'm such a nerd. lol

That's the first I've heard of this. Even if it is true, it looks like it's really minor changes - "Revision 2 which has minor updates and mainly to the Clips on the HDD Cage and the Front Filter Mech'"
