I have a question on fan control. The fans that come with the case don't plug into the motherboard (890FXA-GD70) 3 pin power source unless I missed something. Anyway, the case fans seem nice and quiet but the CPU cooler (CM Hyper 212+) fan is loud. Do I need to get a fan control for it or should the motherboard be controlling it? Should I get a more quiet fan? Both? I would love to hear some solutions or insight form you guys! I am currently only using stock fans on the case because I am not overclocking ...yet. Also, I only have the one stock fan on the CM 212+. My cpu is the AMD Phenom II 1090T BE. Thanks for your help in advance!

YOu should be able to run that 212+ with the CPU header on the MOBO.
Open your BIOS and under hardware monitor, change the CPU temp target to 40c and minimum fan speed to 62.50%. That should quiet it down alot.

My first standing order is to remember, this club is about the people in it , more than it is about the case we love. I don't want to see the ''shouldn't this be posted in another thread" thing going on. Off-topic discussion is the driving force behind this amazing thread and I want to keep it that way. Besides why worry about it anyway? We always come back to our Scouts. That's what we are. Scout junkies We're always needing our Scout fix.

Carry on troops and have a shiny day.
General Rockr69... Big Congrats ... Not to Quote the hell out of my post here but... I really don't like to leave for too long of a time. To much happens here if your gone to long... Anyway Rockr.. You'll be a great leader in this fine club of our's!!!! I Got Your Back 'ROCKR'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(when I'm Here, that is...)
I spoke with 'E'. I know the story. I'm at eassssssssssssss...... for now!!!

Welcome to a few New members!!!

Also, congrats to GoodInk & Kev-b on the winning place
for The Most Beautiful 'Scout' contest... You guys well deserve it... You both have some 'Beautiful' Rig's...

Rockr, when you edit the post.

Look for and click on the "Go Advanced" button.

I believe, that should give you the ability to change the Thread Title.

Clickie here for a SEARCH on these Forums on this..

If that doesn't work then I image you may have to contact the Mods on it. Obviously Enigma was able to, so there is a way to do it.

Also, for those who.. do "know the story about the why".. if you're allowed to, could ya PM me about it, otherwise its gonna be eating at my curiosity and drive me nuts!

It depends on the motherboard how to do it. Gigabyte boards normally allow you to manually control the fan speed through the PWM CPU connector on the board using SpeedFan. Asus boards normally don't have that capability. I'm not sure about other brands, but some will and some won't. Any board that has a 4 pin PWN connector on the board can be set to use PWM to automatically control the fan speed to slow it down under a light load and speed it up as the demand and temps dictate. It actually works fairly well most of the time.

Be careful getting a quieter fan for the 212+ though as it will more than likely lower the cooling capacity and efficiency. The BladeMaster that comes with the 212+ has a LOT of static pressure which is what allows it to work so well on a heatsink or radiator as the static pressure is what forces the air through the fins. Quieter fans tend to have a lot less static pressure so they can't force the air through the fins and therefore can't cool as well. A Medium Speed Yate Loon would be a fairly good choice as a quieter fan that still has adequate static pressure to be effective, but you would probably have 3 -4C higher temps compared to the stock BladeMaster. That would be fine at low system load, but depending on the CPU you have and how much (if at all) you OC your system along with your ambient room temps it might not work that well when you push the system.

You need to click on the User CP at the top of this page, then scroll down the left side to the Add System link and enter in your system specs in as much detail as possible. By that I mean 2 x 2gig G.Skil PC2-8500 CL5 ram instead of 4 gig ram, etc. That way we have some idea of what we are dealing with. While you are at it, go to the Edit Your Details link, then scroll down towards the bottom and fill in the Where You Live with at least your country. It makes things so much easier when people know what country you are from when recommending products.

Got some more pictures finally...

First the upgrade parts!

Apogee XT!



XSPC RX120 Radiator!


XSPS Res w/ MCP655 Pump Combo!



The above were sold to me by our member Telnets; though for now I am keeping them packed up until I get the rest of the parts for the loop.

Still to come, is one EK GPU Block for my 5850; and then I need to decide which tubing I am going to use, and then figure out where I am going to install that Res/Pump combo.

Still working on that PSU Shroud!



Also last but not least... my newest and most recent upgrade..

Blu-Ray!


Oh and yes that is a Saitek Cyborg Evo sitting on top...

Actually got pics of everything, including the various individual barbs and the Temp sensor you sent; but figured I'd just post the key parts here for now

Are you going to try to cooler your CPU and GPU with the RX120? I'm thinking that will be too much for it.
