Installing the Tuniq Tower on EVGA 680i A1

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
This is a new thread topic as xShiFTx answered my first question.

But now I'm wondering about one more thing, and then I'll be ready for when my PSU, case and HDD are ordered and delivered!

This mobo (EVGA 680i SLI) has a 4 pin fan connector. The fan for the TT needs 3 pins, and the Rheostat needs 2. Will the rheostat still work?

Thank you for your time.

Straight from another forum:
The clip is for installing the tower on the AM2 socket for AMD processors.

That's funny. My instincts were saying "dude, it's not necessary. Keep moving." lol Thank you, xShiFTx!

Not only that, where will the fan controller plug in?

I'm going to be putting this into the cm 690 (still have to order it).

I have one and it's just fine. The 3 pin plugs into the first 3 pins of the 4 pin connector and the fan controller works just fine

Only problem is the fan from the Tuniq touches the NB HS, but at least it still goes on

Good luck

Hmm, I turned the TT so that it blows down becauseit was touching the NB. I assumed that it wouldn't allow me to align the screws properly. But if you were able to get it aligned perfectly, then I'll have to redo it and aim the fan out the back of the case, once I have one to put this in.

How about the fan controller? Where does it go?

Do you have a top exhaust in your case? I think blowing up would be a much better choice than blowing down into the case.

Oh, lol GOOD IDEA a duh.

Ya, it's going to be the cm 690, so I guess I would've figured that out later. lol Thank you.

There is one question I do have. Does the TT's fan spin clockwise? And does the chipset fan on the EVGA 680i spin clockwise too?

I mean, do all fans in a computer spin clockwise?

Make sure you seat the Tuniq before you put the fan in, it will be just fine

The fan controller slides in an expansion slot in the back of the case and just plugs into a special plug on the Tuniq fan.
