Wow thanks! I made a build thread for my case, not so much actual case mods..but more so based on cable management.

I'll snap a pic of my case in full, later in the day. Nothing special, as I keep unscrewing everything nearly every day lol.

Man oh man I really hope Ati will sort their chip problem fast and ship out more HD5850 cards towards my general area because I really can't wait to build a new rig.

My current PC is in desperate need of replacement. Especially since my Nvidia 7600GT died on me so I had to replace it with my old 6200LE 64mb turbocache version All I can play now is Warcraft 3 ! lol!

Also the fan in my power unit decided he's tired of spinning around all day, so I had to come up with a temporary solution internal case fan + some tape = cooling... lol

Invite me man, posting some pics real soon as soon as my case arrives.

Edit : BTW, You guys might want to check out the Enermax Apollish fan series, they look pretty neat imo.

Actually, I was first tempted to take those fans. But then I thought they might be too bright and I like subtle leds more.

I was thinking about a Red/Black/White/UV theme for my case. Probably keeping the red led front fan of the Scout case and maybe this one in the back, which looks nice with UV turned on. And off:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835214003

and the same on the bottom window side, or either of these:
http://www.thermaltake.com/product_i...Fan&ov=n&ovid=
or
http://www.thermaltake.com/product_i...Fan&ov=n&ovid=

though I'm not sure if the "grille" can be removed so I can place it as an intake fan on the window...
Also I'm not sure the logo version will ruin the red/white theme with it's blueish glow and if the other one would be too trippy

QUESTION: Some fans have 4 pin connections but most fan controllers have 3-pin entrance points... any ideas to solve this?


Anyways, my Thermaltake Spinq VT arrived and it's a beauty It seems to be able to fit my current case so I have no doubts it will fit the Scout

H50 at Best Buy.... Who would have thought!
Yea I called their Corporate office about 6 months ago and told them about the Rocketfish/Lian Li case debacle and told them how people were starting groups that own them. Then I told them how they are in such High demand now and I also left messages with the other VPs telling them about how NewEgg is cleaning the floor with their axx. Then I told them that they were about to loose all their peripheral sales if they didn't start taking some of that crap off the shelves and put some stuff up there that people want to buy. I also told them to get someone that knew about video cards and CPU Coolers as well as PSUs and put them in charge at Corporate because the guy that was doing that job was playing too much freaking golf I guess. maybe they listened?

114K .pdf here.

Highlights:

Pin 1 Gnd black
Pin 2 12V yellow
Pin 3 (tachometer) sense green
Pin 4 (PWM) control blue


The PWM pin does not provide power to the fan. It is a 5ma maximum control signal. The specified fan lead colors are not compatible with 3-pin fan wire colors. There are three types of responses the fan can have (called A, B, C in the spec document) to the control input. The PWM frequency is 25KHz nominal, with an allowed range of 21-28KHz.

Lots of other info here. The main thing is, the fan itself has to contain some smarts. No 3-pin fan can be made into a 4-pin PWM fan by one of us ham-handed DIYers. Evidently, the 4-pin "smarts" include defaulting to full-on when no pin-4 control signal is present, which accounts for the observed behavior.

Heh, I can unserstand that I cant make a PWM out of a 3-pin fan. But what I'm trying to say is that the case fans I'm planning to buy are 4-pin (so with PWM) and most fan controllers just support 3 pin.

Is it possible to just connect them anyway, ignoring the 4th pwm "hole" of the fan connector?

Also, take for instance this fan controller:
http://azerty.nl/8-1087-68241/scythe...25inch-sn.html

How does it get the temperature readings? Does it come with sensors? Or is it from the fans themselves? Do 4-pin fans even have sensors themselves?
