External PSU for just pump/fans/controller/CCFL/leds - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Alright, got the PSU replaced for something with molex connectors, everything seems to be working.

Except, my fan controller (Scythe Kaze Master Pro) doesn't give a proper voltage when multiple fans are connected. When I only connect 1 fan, the RPM seems to be good, around 1550-1600 (1600RPM fan). But as soon as I connect extra fans, the RPM drops, and it goes down to 1250 when I turn on all 12 fans. What gives? Bad fan controller?

Mine measured 14.4v on a multimeter while powering the pump when I first made it...slightly over volted I guess, but should be within specs I think. Though I only use big pumps.
