Best case fans I can get for positive pressure and GPU cooling.. - Page 5

This leads me to believe it's more testing error than cooler difference. +/- 1-2c is is accepted margin of air. wink.gif

I would not use 140mm fans on a 120mm vent. Reason is blade tips are bigger than vent opening and will make noise trying to pull air from case surface. That combined with the tips being the fastest moving part of blade could / would make the 140mm louder.

I can't guarantee much of what we are assuming will be the best setup, but I feel it will be a very nice cool and quiet rig when done.

Edit:
I notice the GameZoom review runs AXP-100 fan at 1500rpm and not it's 2500rpm maximum speed. I found the difference between 1750rpm and 2400-2450rpm with cool air to intake was only 4-7c warmer. On my build fan runs 1500-1700rpm max, usually about 1200rpm. I expect with the intake vent directly above AXP-100 that your fan speeds will be similar.

Cool and quiet, oww yeah! biggrin.gif
Hopefully, assumptions will work as expected wink.gif

I will get the AXP-100 muscle, 1-2c versus half the price, the clear winner is the price. I will get the USV12's as well.

For the GPU PWM and the two case fans, could I use a cable for the GPU like this one:

and then connect to that cable a Y splitter like this one?

Since only a fan will be on top of the CPU I could just use the connectors on the Motherboard.

Edit: Shall I get any specific thermal paste you would recommend?

Hehehe same fan, have to check which is cheaper then tongue.gif

No. How will you connect both the GPU fans and the case fans? GPU fan use smaller plug/socket. Images and links to supplier are in 1st link in my sig.

No again. Didn't we figure out your motherboard only has 1 CPU header, therefor only one PWM connection? A simple PWM Y splitter will do the job. Just be sure it only has one rpm lead connected.

Okay. So, for the GPU, the cable you posted on the link in your sig plus a Y splitter for the two fans on the GPU.

For the CPU, the motherboard has two headers, one CPU PWM header and one chassis PWM header. Shouldn't the chassis header work out with the CPU temperature as well?

I would use the adapter and a PWM splitter with PSU power because trying to run twice as many fans on GPU as it comes with might burn it out. wink.gif

I seriously doubt the chassis fan header is PWM. 4-pin fan headers are not all PWM.` I have never seen a a chassis header that was PWM. Sorry I didn't make that clear in post 13.

All right, then the adapter plus a PSU powered PWM Y splitter for the GPU.

The CPU Y splitter can go without PSU power or it is safer to do it that way as well?

Fan headers can handle up to 1A. Normal cooler fans are less than 0.3A so you will have no problem.

FYI
There are exceptions like Silver Arrow SB-E and IB-E Extreme with TY-143 fans have a supplied PWM Y splitter with PSU power.

Fantastic! I will order the cables and heatsink. Will give the fans a few days more before I order them.

doyll,

I was reading the motherboard specifications

On Hardware Monitor it says:

- CPU/Chassis Temperature Sensing
- CPU/Chassis Tachometer
- CPU/Chassis Quiet Fan (Allow Chassis Fan Speed Auto-Adjust by CPU Temperature)
- CPU/Chassis Fan Multi-Speed Control
- CASE OPEN detection
- Voltage Monitoring: +12V, +5V, +3.3V, CPU Vcore

The user manual has this diagram:



It pretty much points out the chassis header is PWM as well.

Apart from that, saw this other 4 pwm splitter, but not from GELID. It should work the same right? It is way cheaper for me than the GELID (~$6 that one vs ~$14 GELID). I tried to find with less fan connectors, but with three connectors or less there is no PSU power connector.

Thank you!
