To understand you problem you should write down, draw or snap a picture of how you connected the fans in detail! We need to know the whole connection, from the fans to the hubs to the motherboard.

All hubs will just have one single port that can send a tacho signal. You need to transport the fan signal with that port.


Edit:
Was testing my expansion loop for 2 days with distilled water 2 times to get a clean loop. Since yesterday I added the expansion into my Predator loop for testing and air removal. The Predator had a very small amount of air, but is now air free biggrin.gif


I connected the pump to the w_pump headern and just connected all 6 fans to the motherboardn ran asus ai suite and now they are super quiet, i just wish manufactuers would implement right angle headers for everything not just sata ports

What if I replace the stock cpu block with this cpu/pump combo to aid flow rate of my 360mm w/ gpu block? Should I be a guinea pig and try it? biggrin.gif

Unless you're adding multiple sets of qdc like Dschijn or multi gpu AND radiators, I don't see any real reason in adding another pump to the predator.

I certainly wouldn't replace a sleek and sexy ek block with that monstrosity.

Do you own a Dremel?

If you do then might I suggest using a cutoff wheel and carefully cut the rivets(wth.gif) from the side instead of drilling them out? Yes it's messier, but the possibility of puncturing the Radiator/Res/Pump remains an even messier possibility.

Are the PCB riveted into place? I've finally got a customer who needs an AIO that is willing to spend the dough on a Predator an I may have to talk him out of it if so. Cause I really don't want to spend excessive labor on any system that isn't my personal rig. thinking.gif

I did have a question though, since I will be ordering it this week. v1.1 comes with backplate an rubber insert correct? Or am I gonna have to add those to my cart? mellowsmiley.gif

I don't have a dremel so I will probably just going with the screwdriver method instead of a drill lol.

Yeah I don't know if they updated it or not. On my model, the pcb fan hub is riveted on to the radiator. The PCB died so EK sent out a new one so now I just have to break the rivet off so that I can replace the pcb.

Wanna wait for my new case to build it in. In the Define S I can't test it without changing much. Maybe I will test it tomorrow without building it into the case and the fans just put on without attaching them.
Hmmmm biggrin.gif
post #5320 of 7180
Can one expect the temps to be lower than 75c when 1.35v 5820K (x99)? Using predator 240.


Because if the 360 needs modding on my case I don't think I will opt for that.


Edit: also, does anyone know if the EK store have free ship and no sales tax when shipped to NYC?
