Noctua NH-D15 Club - Page 107

post #1061 of 1427
This is an intriguing question as the 140s have a larger dead air hole in the center than the 120s meaning the 120s might actually cool more of the radiator. It depends on the radiator design though as some have the heat pipes spread across the front surface and some have them clustered on the sides where there is more air flow. The D15s center pipes might not be cooling as well as the outer pipes while they are taking their heat from the hottest part of the CPU.

So I have just ordered a third fan for my NH-D15 I'm aware it probably won't make a difference. Just have a feeling it will look pretty beastly in the side window.

you run all three fans at 1200 rpm. For stock 1500 rpm fans, that means using the LNA. test the rpm's of the fans. Slowest in front, fastest in back. Have fun.

Thanks man, I am unsure what I'll be doing to get it to work because I am just using the fan hub on my Enthoo Pro Case, I mean there must be a limit as to how many fans you can run with it. Currently I am running 6 on it already. I am thinking about using the case fan headers on the motherboard instead of running them to the hub and then to the cpu_fan header.

Actually I am running a Y splitter from both the CPU fans and then to cpu_fan header and then the other chassis fans to the hub and it looks like the hub is connected to molex or sata. I will figure it all out when the fan gets here, I really need to tidy up the cable management and route them more logically.. smile.gif

You should probably test your fans with a direct line to the PSU while measuring RPM with your MB. You only need to do this once, but it will tell you how fast they spin. Each will deviate from specs to an unknown amount.

Is it really that important? I mean isn't that only if you chasing perfect airflow that actually matters? As of right now all the temp sensors are fine and my CPU doesn't even touch 60 degrees celcius at full load and that's with the fans running as low as they will go and Asus AI Suite tells me that's 740-760 rpm.

 I​ figure that if you are on OCN, you want the max. Think about it. Slower fans do not let as much airflow through as faster fans. All fans have varied speeds and cfm. Putting the slowest last is sort of creating an air dam. Not necessary to fix that, but desirable.

Excuse me for being quite daft, but what do you mean with direct link to PSU? And since I haven't wired the fans on splitters to the different chas_fan outputs I can't see the RPM of each fan individually but only the header where I have all my fans connected to which is the cpu_fan header smile.gif

Excuse me for being quite daft, but what do you mean with direct link to PSU? And since I haven't wired the fans on splitters to the different chas_fan outputs I can't see the RPM of each fan individually but only the header where I have all my fans connected to which is the cpu_fan header smile.gif

Try connecting a fan with an adapter -- they usually attached to your Molex connector. The adapter usually has and rpm wire that ends in a 3-conductor plug. Plug that in to your MB. Alternately, set your motherboard on max. Then, one by one, connect each fan directly to the same CPU header. That will get you comparative fan speeds. Connecting them through a harness means that only the RPM of the first fan will be reported.

Alright, I will try that. I'm looking forward to play with my PC again, it's so much fun, except for when stuff breaks and you have to troubleshoot.
