Jack, do you do anything other than ocn?
Hahah, i love your answers though
As to the hub, previously I had 3 of the original fans connected, one akasa 120 mm basic fan and two 60 mm fans hooked up, all of them was 3-pins.. the 4 pin coming out of the hub was connected to a corsair link module and the PSU power was plugged in and i had full static control of the fans hooked up to it and they all ran at 650-700 rpm, nice and lovely.
But since then i have done a cleanup to get rid of some fans and A LOT of molexes so i took of the 120 and the 60's from the hub and trashed one of the cooling modules since I'm only using 12 fans now and 5 of them are on the hub. i then connected the phanteks hub as i did previously aka molex power and the 4 pin to one of my link modules, but then the fans was running at full tilt and it didn't show up as a device within the corsair software. Then i re-flashed the firmware, same result.
First thing i did this morning was relocating the 4pin from the link module to a mb header (non cpu) with the psu plugged into the hub, same result with the rpm at full tilt even if i set the curve inside the bios. I then disconnected the psu and the fans went down to a tolerable speed
so i think they're hovering around 60% which should be about 800-900 rpm (still a bit too much for my taste but it'll have to do till i get an aquaero)
still got awesome temps after taking out 9 fans though
max cpu temp after 1 hour of guild wars was at about 50 degree c, so now I'm back debating whether or not i should break up the parallel loop
I'm in Poland atm and sadly i didn't have time to upload my build log pictures to dropbox so i could show you how to fully cover a 480 rad mounted the opposite way of what phanteks intended you to, but if it is interest i'll post them when i'll get back home, i know it was another owner in here wanting to mount it as i did
anyhow ill post my cable management here for some guidance, though i think i nailed it
What do you guys and gals use for lightning that look great inside the EP and where do you place them? I've gone through led fans (too smokey), corsairs led strips (awful bugs) and ccfl's (too hard to hide)
