Fan Location in Arc midi R2 - Page 2

post #11 of 42
@ elwood13,
Ducting is made out of hanging file folders. biggrin.gif
Measure, cut, fold, glue with glue stick, curse when it doesn't fit, cut and glues stick to get it right. Than use it for a pattern to make one that looks good and spray it with your choice. I prefer "Rattle-Can Satin Black". Be careful when painting as it gets softer and easier to bend, but when dry it's even stronger and stiffer.. (she said that).

Yeah, had Commodore, Amiga, Next. Sadly all gone now.

@ Otterclock,
Indeed, TY-14x fans are great. I've got 6x each of TY-140s' & TY-143s' and a few 147s too.
Also using the new Phanteks fans and just got a couple of Cryorig XF140 fans.

Thanks guys. I emailed Noctua about issues with the top pcie slot and they said it should be fine. they recommended the NH-U14S, but that means I would have to use different ram. I also inquired about a possible new cooler release. They stated "that a new launch is expected in the next weeks and if I wait a few days it should be on the website, though there were no details on availability".

Now on to the current question. Looking at the mother board fan connectors I have a cpu fan pwm connector, a cpu opt pwm connector and three cha fan 5v connectors. I'll swap out the d-14 fans to pwm's. Now, if I understand correctly, those go to a supplied y splitter and go to cup fan connector.

If I go two front and one rear case pwm fans, do they go to the cpu opt connector with one of these?

If I go two front, one bottom, one rear and one top, do I make them all pwm and how would I adapt that config? Or would you want them steady volts connected elsewhere?

Thanks again for putting up with these questions, cause I'll never learn if I don't ask.

If you want all PWM fans to be controlled from the CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT are the only 2 that are PWM. Look at the Swiftech 8-Way PWM splitter.
As for ram you can just use slot 2/4 instead of 1/3. That way you should have more room to work with. That is if you are using 2 sticks.

Thanks. With the D14, my ram should work but not with S model. Is it better to have all pwm or some? Does it come down to personal preference mainly on case fans?

I would say personal preference or may vary depending of your rig (board, fan mount locations, fans specifications, etc).

I have an Asus board and 120mm PWM case fans with 600 rpm - 2000 rpm.
They're quiet at low/medium speed and loud at higher speed.

By default the cpu fan header has a min duty cycle at 20% and the cha fan header has 60%.

If I have a drive cage with 4 stacked hard disks I think is better to hook the front fan in the cha fan header.
With cpu idling the cpu fan will spin at min 600 rpm and the cha fan will spin at medium speed.
I don't think that my 120mm fans spinning at very low speed can help much in a restricted fan mount location.

If the cpu is in under heavy load the fan headers will increasy the fan speeds.
For me it's ok to have a cpu fan spinning at high speed along it's necessary to keep the processor cool but I think that it's not always necessary to have all the case fans spinnig at high speeds.

If noise is a concern I can at least drop the max duty cycle of the cha fan headers and only the cpu fans will be louder.

So I would say that having all the case fans in the same cpu fan header might not be desirable for everyone.
All the fans will be controled the same way in a header designed to cool the cpu.

There's board that comes only with only one cha fan or cha fans without speed control.
Then for those boards I think that would be interesting to have extra fans sharing the same speed control of the cpu.

It's more about how you want to control fan speed. CPU coolers almost all use PWM fans now. Same with GPUs. Using PWM case fans give you the option of automatically controlling them with PWM signal from the same as CPU / GPU fans. First link in sig explains how to do it.
