Did you try the new version from TT? If you send them an email they'll send you their new design to try. I've heard it fixes the problems for the vast majority of people. Another one to try would be the 3M cable, cost like $100 but if it's good enough for reliable server equipment then it should do the job.

The one that came with my system isn't working properly either. Screen loses signal and goes black alllll the time. Waiting to get the new cable design from TT to try. I'll report back with my results after.

Doesn't look like that EZDIY cable is available on Amazon.ca so doesn't look like I'll be trying it. I've heard it works for many people, but one of the reviews also said he had problems with it until he set his slot to gen2 speeds. So something worth trying might be to put your pcie down to gen2 if your card won't see a performance decrease, which will be the case for most situations running single gpu x16. I'm going to try that until I get the new cable replacement in

I've got two of them "new design" ones from TT biggrin.gif
Also I'm running my card in pcie 2.0 slot as it's only one working(it works on TT risers, worked on ezdiy and some cheap chinese ones). Did tons of benchmarks and there's no performance difference between pcie 3.0 and 2.0 so it stays like this, no point to spend money and mess about.

So right now im running a corsair 760T case... in it i have 2 Ek predator 360's cooling off my CPU and soon to be GPU... was curious about a few things.

if i change to the P5 ( which i want to ) obvious i wouldst need to drop to 1 rad correct?

second thing i was wondering. is it possible to mount my 240mm reservoir to where liquid will drop in from the top... that way i could fill it only 3/4 of the way for more of a visual appeal. you could see the liquid trickling in... hope that makes sense...

Update to my post from a while back - I have made a bit of progress on my build but still not complete. Waiting on the EK water block for the Titan X and Corsair Vengeance 3466 Red LED memory.

In the meantime I received eigh of these Riing 12 LED RGB Radiator TT Premium Edition fans.. I installed them in a push / pull configuration. Mini review below and posted here on the thermaltake site.


I just received & installed eight new Riing 12 Premium radiator fans. The controllers are significantly smaller than the older non-premium models. Cable connectors are also smaller so no way to try and use the old fans on the new controllers.

Each box of three comes with a jumper cable to easily daisy chain controllers together. The last one in the chain can either go to an open USB port via a standard micro USB cable or you can use this nifty cable also included that goes directly to a motherboard USB 2 header.

I was happy with everything until I downloaded and fired up the software. It isn't that sophisticated and has a critical bug plus some smaller ones.

  • Very basic interface more geared towards a novice rather than someone that is installing radiator fans.
  • RPM slider bar moves past the default lowest setting of 50% but doesn't actually do anything. Confirmed this bug with tech support. No ETA on a fix. Critical bug for me.
  • The only way to select a color is to click on a color wheel. No way to enter an RGB color value.
  • While you can clone the color from one fan to another you can't clone across controllers making it very difficult or impossible to get exactly the same colors on all fans if you have multiple controllers or more than three fans.
  • No way to assign profiles or individual settings to any external triggers like opening an app. The software should at least have command line functionally so you could use even a basic batch file to fire a profile and then load a game.
  • Would also be nice to be able to set profiles, fan speeds, or colors based on temperatures monitored by the system.
  • The interface isn't that intuitive and confusing. Not that clear how fans are grouped into controllers or how to save or load them from profiles.
  • Well at least we have a USB connection so even if Thermaltake started over we have the underpinning to control these fans via software. Why don't they just open it up so developers could make their own "fan apps".


Am I the only one on the planet that has started using these new fans?

Having to use the proprietary fan controllers with the non-Premium versions was a big negative for me because you couldn't control them from the PC. But they looked great and seemed to be designed for radiators (I went with a 60mm thick radiator. The new ones seem to have a new daisy chain-able USB interface that allows full control from the PC including color and fan speed. Killer feature so worst case I will have to eat it and replace even if I have to re-buy everything.

Does anyone have any more info on these new fans? I would like to just buy the controllers instead of having to start over from scratch in terms of both time and $. The new fans seem to have more fins and are even "better" for radiators.


Below are a few pics of my in-progress rig. Just temporally plumbed things up without the video card so I could leak test my new hard line PETG tube bending skills. I am waiting for the EVGA GTX 1080 Hydro Copper. Why would anyone replace the fan on the FTW or Classified with a yet unknown 3rd part block when the Hydro looks like it will have the same dual 8-pin power connectors? Just for a different look?

Speaking of water this is the first time I am using this type of a reservoir. Is it "normal" to have the air in the top of the reservoir (can't seem to bleed it out)? At first it bothered me but now I think it looks soet of cool to see the water agitation. Still just testing using only distilled water for now. Any recommendation on a good / safe fluid or red dye to go with plain old distilled water? I have the pump out into the bottom of the radiator, out through the top, over to the MB, into the CPU, and then when I get it out to the video card and then back to the top of the reservoir.

Lastly I modified my older AX1200 power supply by pulling out the stock fan and replacing it with a new one with LEDs. Speaking of the AX1200 I was frustrated that no one is selling a complete set of custom cables for the non "i" model of this PSU. In my picture I show a set of crapy extension from Amazon but I ordered "proper" custom made extensions from this guy. Now I just need to figure out which memory to go with. Noticed a few new sets of DDR4 announced also last week at Computex. Looking for something with red LEDs.

This is exactly what I will be doing with my build, but I'm currently trying to figure out if I will have issues with filling/bleeding the system (play to fill it through the top of the radiator), but also any air bubbles being introduced from the mixing up of the fluid with it being dropped in from the top. I'm also putting an anti-cyclone fitting in the inside top of my reservoir to attempt to create a fountain like effect. I've done tests with water and it looks cool and doesn't appear to choke the flow at all, but that's only based on the water flowing at the rate gravity pulled it through the tube, not reflective of the pressure the pump will be pushing it with. I'm painting some parts now, but I've already bent all my tubing and should be assembling my system within the next week or two for testing. I'll report back how it works.

Ironically, the last thing I need for my system is 4 fans for the radiator. Do you feel the Premium are worth the hassle and upcharge in price, or just go with the tried and true previous model with the manual controller?

I bought eight of the previous gen fans and installed them a month before the new ones were announced. Ironically I just ran them for testing then realized the ability to control things via software was a necessity.

yes thats exactly what i want to do.. you worded yours better lol..... anyone have any advice on the subject? i suppose we could fully fill the reservoir till we get all air out of system then just let a little liquid out from the drain port?
