[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 47

post #461 of 18857
In light of the fact that buying a second pwm hub might not be possible straight away, I was thinking of other solutions to hook up 13 fans, and all have them controlled via pwm from the motherboard.

Would buying an NZXT Grid do the job? If I've understood it right, all it does is take the voltage signal from the input, and spilt it between all of the fans connected, adding in extra power through the molex connection. (I think this is how it works because it can be used with fan controllers to add even more fans)

So I'd just connect it to the pwm hub, which takes the pwm mobo signal and converts it to a voltage adjustment, and then that would be split up with the grid. I don't care if all the fans run at the same speeds as I'll only be using the phanteks fans

Sound like I'm on the right track?

Edit: Balls, I don't think its going to work as all the grid does is split up the input channel, there isn't anywhere to add in more power. If I connected the grid using the molex, the fans would just run at full speed.

Anyone have any other options without resorting to a fan controller?

the corsair link (the software is bad as f*, but is an option) the fan hub for aquaero 5 or even the unit itself without the screen (can be mounted anywhere) and last but not least your motherboard tongue.gif

those are they i know about tho, also a person on ocn manufacturing its own fan hub soon to go out for sale for the community thumb.gif

No, but you figured that out yourself. biggrin.gif

For PWM fans a PWM splitter with PSU power socket will work great.. and Swiftech is probably the best. You just use the PWM signal from motherboard to a PWM splitter and don't worry about the rpm lead. That will be coming from the Phanteks hub master fan.

Yeah I figured it out as I looked at it again
Yeah the problem I have is all the fans aren't pwm, so I can only use voltage regulation to adjust the speed

I saw the aquareo systems, Really pricey, but if they do the job might be worth it. I was hoping for a stopgap sorta solution until someone finds out about whether another pwm is for sale and when.
Might just go for a bog standard fan controller until then...

Just placed the preorder for this on newegg. After my total debacle with the primochill wetbench: http://www.overclock.net/t/1430472/primochill-wetbench#post_20928300 my hopes of having the ultimate water test bench are gone. Back to the case...

The BEST PWM splitter that I have used so far is the swiftech 8 way PWM splitter, I have all the fans for the bottom 480 Rad, installed on to that splitter, the fact that it takes in Molex power and PWM signal from the Mobo make it a great idea.

In my build I have all the non lower 480 fans hooked up to the enthoo fan hub. My system is as quiet as it can get with some great temps.

Looks really good! Does it control 3 pin non-pwm fans or will it just make them run at full speed?

How do some of you have this case already? Where did you get it?

Oh I see. Well I placed my preorder, rather expensive with tax and shipping. Came out just under $300...
