Cool thanks. Hope the fan controller can also read the RPMs from 8 fans hooked to 1 channel (same fans, 8 fans per 480 rad, got 2) plugged in via nzxt fan hub.

If not oh well but itd be nice.

PlastiDip black has a great matte look if you apply it carefully. It's basically liquid rubber spray, so it won't crack and you can peel it off later if you want a different colour or the original surface.

Looking good - I like the external rad. What are you doing to power all those fans out there?

That will most likely not work. What you want to do is use the speed signal from only a single fan.
Some fan hubs and splitter cables are already designed and wired that way. They will have one header labled as the one with the RPM signal.

I'm not familiar with the NZXT one. If it does have all RPM lines connected as some boards do then there are a few ways to modify it to a single RPM line.

You can clip the RPM pins off of all the headers on the NZXT board and leave one intact. I just use specific extension cables with my boards that don't have RPM lines. Or you you can just depin the RPM line from all the fans and leave it sitting outside the connector.

Specific extension cables? What cables would work for connecting 8 fans (well, 16 actually plus 3 case fans, i figured id control all the fans from 1 radiator per fan channel)? I bought the nzxt grids because im pretty sure theres no Y-Splitters for such a use. Not unless you daisy chained a crap load of them, but thatd be quite a mess.

Good to know theres a workaround though, thanks. Curious though how do i know which pin is the RPM line? (on the fan hubs, id rather not deface/mod all the fans)

Are we talking PWM or DC fans?

yeah nice build, i like the white scheme, but then i this is the first white/blue build ive seen.
speaking of OCD, imo it would be perfect if you painted the grill on the psu white and the fan blue tongue.gif but that's my ocd coz now all i can see is that needing to be done heh

I wouldn't recommend the Phanteks hub to my worst enemy. OK, actually I would, but that would be the point.

Why I hate the Phanteks so-called pwm hub (Click to show)

It does so by using the PWM duty cycle to modulate the 12v current to the fans. It's a bit buggy / trouble-prone, and a LOT of people have had trouble getting it to work with their fans / motherboard. Just do a search of the Phanteks Club thread for 'hub' and if you spend any amount of time weeding though the results you'll see what I mean. For those who do manage to get theirs to work for them, they do seem to like it, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Besides that, modulating the 12V current like the Phanteks hub does doesn't always offer a very wide range of control even when it does work right, often causes some fans to make a clicking sound, and can actually damage or shorten the lifespan of your fans.

There are PWM controllers and there are PWM fans, but the way in which PWM is implemented in each differs greatly: a standard PWM controller modulates the 12 V supply line of an “ordinary” 12 VDC motor. Conversely a PWM controller for PWM fans – such as the one featured in this article – doesn’t modulate the 12V supply line but instead sends a PWM signal along a different supply line (the magic “fourth wire”) to a more advanced 12 VDC motor, leaving the 12 V supply line uninterrupted. Designated PWM fans not only have internal circuitry which differs from that of standard fans, but because they are designed with speed control in mind the motors themselves are usually more advanced (and expensive). So, PWM speed control of a standard fan is indeed very different from PWM speed control of a PWM fan… Nidec even goes so far as to say that modulating the main supply voltage is not advisable:

. Pulse-width modulation of dc operating voltage to modify fan speed is not recommended. Transients generated by that approach can irreversibly damage motor commutation and control electronics and dramatically shorten the life of a fan.
