All fans are running at full blast (i think)... they're reporting 1450 rpms to the lamptron controller at least; I don't know if that's accurate though, since I can't reduce voltage to slow them down.

It seemed like it needed an RPM signal to work properly but I don't know if that is correct. It really shouldn't be.

If I had bought mine new it would be going back.
I still have my d5 hooked up to it... im not sure what an RPM signal cable is, or if that's what I'm using... but it's definitely different from the cables connecting the fans... looks like it's just one pin, not 3. You think it would help if I unplugged the pump?

Your pump should have a connector with a red and black wire.
Those two are your power wires.
And you might have a second connector with either a black and yellow, or just a yellow wire on it. That is the rpm signal. Tho sometimes the yellow wire is blue.

If your pump does not have all 3 wires plugged into the controller, it can't be controlled.
But since most controllers don't have the ability to control pumps, your pump probably doesn't have a 3-pin connector to plug to the controller.

Now your fans.
They should have a 3-pin connector with red/black/yellow wires on it.
Same with the fans. If not all 3 of them are connected to the controller, the controller can't do it's job.

Am I making sense?

Wanna take a picture of your CW611 from the top so I can see what you have plugged in?

That isn't right. A fan controller should work whether any rpm signal is present or not. It just reduces voltage.

Yes of course. But let's keep in simple.
If his fans, or pump, have a fan connector, it will likely be either be 1or 2 pin for rpm, or 3 pin for rpm+power.

Wait... maybe I just have things plugged in wrong... I'm not sure now.

The cord on my fan, that can't be detached from the fan unit, is a 3pin yes... but inside the fan packaging there was a 3-pin to molex adapter.

Initially, since no instructions were included (with literally anything), I attached the fan DIRECTLY to the fan controller. The fans didn't spin at all when I did this, and the system quickly went in to a reboot loop until i powered it down. I therefore used the 3-pin to molex adapter, plugged the fan in to the adapter, plugged the adapter in to the PSU (using the molex interface). Now, the adapter also has an additional 3-pin input on it, so I used the extension cables included with the lamptron to connect the controller to this 3-pin input on the adapter.

If you can't imagine it, I'll take pictures in the morning. You're saying though that I should be able to plug the fans in directly to the controller?

Also... My pump had the Red / Black thing, yes.. but it ended in a Molex connector. I attached that to the molex connectors on my PSU... The third cable (it was single, yes either yellow or blue), I attached to the fan controller in the channel 1 slot.
post #138 of 190
Oh, dear. There's your problem. Anything that isn't plugged directly into the controller is not being controlled.

If the pump is getting power from a molex connector it is pointless to connect the single RPM wire to the controller. It won't do anything. It just reports the speed. If you just want to see the speed that is fine of course.

The same applies to the fans. The adaptor that comes with the GT's is just for running the fans direct from the power supply at full speed. The extra 3 pin is just for an RPM signal.

Plug the fans straight into the controller.

I guess I just figured the little 3 way adapter deal that came with my fans was there to connect a fan to the fan controller, and get power to it... I'm just dumb

I don't get it though, for several reasons, not the least of which is that I already tried to plug the fans directly in to the CW611... the system just kept rebooting itself.

Also, the molex connector is already crimped (or connected somehow) to the pump cabling. Unless I strip that off, and crimp a 3-pin that thing isn't connecting to the controller at all....

Please post suggestions I guess. I'm going to head to sleep.. I'll read everything, and post updates in the morning. Sorry for my noobiness guys.
