Right now I have a DRP3 on my Z170i Pro Gaming mITX board (yeah, the cooler is bigger than my mobo) but since the case is a Prodigy, the DRP3 is mounted straight on top of the cpu and the weight is well distributed.

Now, I would like to swap the Prodigy for a Nano S which has "traditional" motherboard placement but I fear that the tiny Z170i mobo would not be able to bear the weight of the DRP3 installed that way...

I have already mounted a DRP3 in "normal" layout but it was on an X99 Deluxe (many-layers-pcb and reinforcing backplates)... What do you guys think? smile.gif

Thanks in advance
I would worry more about DRP3 fitting in Nano S than motherboard not being strong enough. Nano S spec is 160mm CPU clearance and DRP3 spec is 162.8mm. I know FD often have a few more mm clearance then their spec, but ..

Have you ever seen a motherboard damaged by a heavy cooler? I have a couple of times .. and it was always from serious abuse and not because of cooler weight. tongue.gif

6 pole motors generate 6 pulses, not 4.
Wouldn't that require some sort of circuitry to change 6 pulse motor reading to 4 pulse signal to fan plug?

You could shield two of the magnets on a 6 pole at the spot of the sensor, thus giving only four pulses.

No idea if that is cost effective, or would hinder performance, but it would work in terms of rpm reading.

Wouldn't that likey also shield them from their power sources and cause the motor to not have same power on all poles? tongue.gif

Hence why I stated that I had no idea if it would hinder performance......tongue.gif
post #405 of 506
Yeah as far as I know shielding is done in one direction, and it doesn't affect anything practically.

As far as I'm concerned, a 'shield' is something used in hand to hand combat to block / stop swords and arrows. tongue.gif

I guess the biggest thing here is I'm very surprised be quiet! released a fan that give 150% rpm readings.
I'm even more surprised they did so without making it very clear in advertising and in packaging.

Well....here's the thing. It isn't a retail fan. You can't buy it individually. On the DRP3 it comes prewired with no speed sensor. In other words, if used by the definition of the manual, you would not be getting speed readings from it in any of its intended usages.

Okay, so you read the manual .. so did I, but I forgot that bit. blushsmiley.gif
That all makes sense, but why have a rpm lead on it at all if it won't read accurately in the application it is being used? I know it\s a devilsmiley.gif advocate kind of thing, but I do think it is rather valid, even if not really a big deal.

Edit, now you guys are ganging up on me. tongue.gif

If you use the splitter on the 120 mm fan, then yes you won't read the RPM. The fan by itself is wired fully with speed sensor as well.

I have seen DRP3 and even NH-D15 fit in the Nano S wink.gif

As I was saying, I am not generally worried about cooler's weight breaking a mobo but people generally don't use a 1.2Kg beast on to a tiny mITX board biggrin.gif
