I do have a shroud (25mm) in there. I have one fan outside the case exhausting>radiator>shroud>fan. This things push so much air is not even funny.

Which gentle typhoon is it? The AP-30's or AP-31's?

Thank you. Interesting.

Any idea where to buy the splitter with molex? Can't find in Amazon xD
I have seen one available, and I think it may have been on a UK site (not sure)...lemme Google...

Wow, first try....

http://usb.brando.com/pwm-fan-splitt...0c032d015.html

It's actually for "case" fans (it has three leads), but you can use it for two fans as in push/pull. If you look at the connector ends, you'll see that two of them have only three pins inside a four pin connector, and the third one has all four pins. That four pin connector is for your "primary" fan. It can be either push or pull fan, and the only thing making it a "primary" is that it has the 4 pin connector so it is providing the RPM signal to the CPU FAN header. You want only one fan providing this signal so as not to confuse the BIOS about the speed of the fan. This is also why you should make sure to use matched fans since they are more likely to be running at the same speed even though only one tac signal is being used. You can see in the bottom picture that this splitter has a molex connector to power the fans as well as the four pin connector for the CPU FAN header on your mobo.

Considering it has three fan connectors, you could add another fan in your case that would change RPM depending on the temp of the CPU just like your push/pull fans do (if you wanted to). Personally I would likely just cut off the third fan connector and paint, dye or otherwise color all the wires black.

That depends on your motherboard. Newer mobos are coming with voltage control on some of the headers, including the CPU FAN header, so they can control 3 pin fans (I think I alluded to this in my last post). If a person wants to control RPMs, and they only have three pin fans, then either their mobo must support it, or they have to get a hardware fan controller. The only other option that I know of is PWM. This is exactly why I chose PWM in the first place. My mobo does not support 3 pin fan control, but I wanted my BIOS to be controlling the CPU cooler fan speeds (H70) automatically.

Each one of my Scythe High Speed PWM fans pulls .6A at full speed, that's 1.2A for just those two fans when they're running at full speed. Most 120mm fans run from 1/3 to 1/2 Amp. Of course, I hardly ever run them at full speed (or at least my BIOS doesn't). How did you measure the current draw of the fans? Did you use an Amp meter? That's the only way to get a real measurement. Of course, you can just calculate it from the power rating of the fan, or just read the specs which may list the current draw.

Any compressed air will do fine. I have a compressor I use, combined with a vacuum cleaner it works wonders. I had been looking for a decent compressor for years and finally found a nice 2 gallon 100PSI unit that works great for anything computer related. A vacuum with a nice fuzzy brush attachment works great too.

This:

Would be awesome for cleaning computer cases and attachments.

Air compressors are not very PC friendly. They can leave you with a thin oily residue on your components.

Just get a blower vac like the one I'm posting for ~$60 and step away from canned/compressed air. You can get them from Amazon in an upright and horizontally opposed system.

That and a cheap $.99 cent 1" paintbrush is all you really need short of a good filter kit from DEMCiFlex.

I've been using a compressor at work for cleaning electronics for over 20 years. I know three computer shops in town who also use compressors, and pretty much all the other electronics shops use a compressor. I have never had any residue come out of any compressor I've ever used. The worst that can be said is if you don't drain it nightly, you may get some moisture in the tank that could come out as water. Plus, any good compressor is filtered as well. I can guarantee you that lots of places use compressors on equipment a lot more expensive than computers.

I would say that air compressors are the best tool for cleaning electronics, IMAO.

Of course, I am not talking about compressors that have been used for driving tools that may need oil added to the compressor. Only oil-less compressors should be used for cleaning anything.

can anyone tell me if there's any problems bringing this as a carry on attached to a computer on an airplane? (due to liquid restrictions)

Anyone have experience taking this along? Will the pipes rupture or leak because of the pressurized cabin?

May be best to remove before flight and install when you get to where you're going. Making sure that it's well padded in your baggage of course. Some restrictions have been lifted but it's best not to take a chance and have to leave your Computer behind for someone to ship to you.
