To ME that's the biggest advantage of PWM. With PWM control, you're fans are gonna be speed-controlled by the fan header no matter what. No reason to use your fan controllers/mobos extra resources to power it when you don't need to. Just use a molex and go straight to the source

Okay that sounds note worthy. I'll try to figure out what kind of splitter I need to make this happen. If I can get by without a fan controller and maintain performance, then I have achieved my goal. I don't want to cram too much stuff inside of my case if I don't have to.

I may fabricate some kind of panel inside so maybe I can install a fan controller internally.
tbh, I've left the idea of fan controlled fans a while back
I found that there is no time to tune the fans based on the pc use ie max at gaming or lower when browsing

PWM sounds great but I chose the opt to downvolted all my fans to 7v,
temps suppose to only be a couple of degrees difference, hopefully rolleyes.gif

according to what someone posted here whenever it was, you shouldnt run a pwm fan from a voltage controller. it screws up the fan and its lifecycle.

They are good fans, however many have reported they make a 'drone' noise - some saying it almost sounds like the blades are hitting against something - whenever the fan is used in pull on a rad. Turns out Blacknoise is aware of the issue and that the fans weren't really designed to be used in pull. They suggested using a shroud might help with the issue. Here's a couple posts from earlier in this thread with responses from Blacknoise about it.

Also on the e-loop home page:


When I install the fan "sucking" on a CPU cooler or a radiator it gets louder, why?

This is due to aerodynamics, simply increase the distance between fan and cooler to about 5-10 mm, e.g. using a distance frame (normal PC accessoires) and the noise will disappear. We suggest an inflating assembly, which is what the fan is optimised for.

Yeah I found the ghost one to be dodgy but
I bought the straight knurled one, which is compression . I found that its ok and aesthetically look good

I myself is a BP lover fyi smile.gif but the only thing I use left for my (in progress) build is their angled adapter

quality wise Aquacomp is just up there

This is true. Voltage control isn't the same as a PWM signal that these fans were designed for and they were also designed for a specific current. Voltage control alters that current in a way that these PWM fans weren't designed for and it can thus cause them to become noisy, shorten their lifespan, or both.

Couldn't I just get non-pwm fans and wire them up to the 3 speed fan switch on the 650D? I'm not sure what the variable voltage is on each setting. I'll have to see what they are to determine what fans in terms of rpms would be best suited for this if I were to go that route.
