i put more of it on this time
post #872 of 3948
I have a couple of questions.

Currently I have my default D14 fans plugged into the splitter which is plugged into my MB header.

I would like to have both or one fan run off Molex however I only have a Molex to 2 pin adapter and the D14 fans are 3 pin.

What is the difference between two pin and 3 pin and am I able to use this adapter with either one or both of my fans?

Thanks.

With some fan repositioning, do you guys think that it will fit on a LGA1155 mobo with a RAM cooler installed?

OK, So as far as I can gather a two pin fan connector is fine, even when plugging in a 3 pin fan.

The only difference is you lose the ability to see the RPM of the fan, it is now in a "always max power state" which I believe the guys and gals at Noctua wanted anyway.

I'm running both fans off the two pin to Molex connector. The Molex cable coming from my HX 1000 is also powering the "fan controller" on my 600T.

As far as I can tell the fans are performing great with temps sitting at around the same level as when plugged into the CPU header on my MB.

You could still have left it plugged into the CPU fan header and set your smartfan speed at a manual 100% in your BIOS, then your case would look cleaner too.....

It actually looks cleaner now! Molex behind the MB in my 600T, can't see a thing

Just completed my new air build. Went from full water cooled - Cpu (q6600) and Gpu 280gtx to full air. So much easier and less stressful. No reason for water these days with great new air coolers(NH-D14) and intel chips (2600k).

4.5 Ghz and Luvin it.

Just fyi. CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB(massive heatsinks) will fit with Noctua NH-D14 and ASUS P8P67 Deluxe LGA 1155. Blocks the first mem slot and you need to shift the heatsink fans to the opposite side. Still works and looks nice.

Hey guys I just purchased this nh-14...just waiting for Amazon to get it to me...I just wanted to get everybody's opinion

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-093-_-Product

I have the above case...now the way the case is advertised, all fans are suppose to be INTAKE, including the rear fan....so how do you think I should mount the nh-d14? Should I mount it traditionally front to back, and flip my Lanboy case to become an exhaust?

I would say yes Steve...That way you are drawing in the cool air through the front fan and exhausting the warm out the back as usual..You might want to try a few different set ups to see what works best for you, but I say try the traditonal way first..Good luck you will like your D-14.

I have an NZXT Tempest Evo Case with a D14 in it. The Tempest can have some pretty great airflow (with a little modification as the fan grates aren't the best) Basically you want to have all front/side/bottom fans as intake fans, and all rear/top fans as exhaust (lets face it, its a fact of life that heat tends to rise)

And i got my new tube of NT-H1 in the mail yesterday. Cleaned both surfaces with 409 and re-applied my TIM, now I'm getting ~5C cooler than my last application (which wasn't a great one since i ran out of TIM when i did it)
