Well this did not work... How to dial back a bunch of fans?? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
How do the LEDS on the NZXT Grid work with different voltages? You said they are blinking, is it regular or intermittent? Is there any chance you can get your hands on a multimeter to test actual voltage at each fan header?

This little trick to get a 7V supply will not always work. The reason is that the 5V supply is only capable of sourcing current, it cannot sink current. So if you do not have sufficient load on the +5V it will not work.

Most newer builds will not have much load on the +5V, e.g. using only SSD or low power HDDs. You can try add a 12V/20W car light bulb or maybe a 4.7 Ohm power resistor as load on the +5V and see if that gives you a stable 7V.

Also many higher end PSUs with built in monitoring will not be happy at all when you try to sink current on the +5V.
