Post your "ghetto rigging" shenanigans - Page 307

post #3061 of 7172
I've done a 7V mod running a crappy 140mm fan and the stock fan that came with my 212+. I have had no problems, and I've daisy-chained a Molex-to-SATA adapter. It's a huge mess and I hope I never have to revert it, but it works and that's what counts.

With fan currents of any higher than a couple of hundred milliamps that workaround will cause the voltage to fall below 5 smile.gif

Instead of doing voltage hacks, why not use resistors? You can get 'em for real cheap and much less likely to break your PSU.

For this to work properly you need things on the 5V circuit to draw off the extra power. If you had a 300mA fan on 7V,it's going to back feed 300mA up the 5V line. If you don't have anything on the 5V feed to draw that off, it goes right up the wrong side of the PSU. Since my fan setup is asking for close to 4A I didn't want to risk damaging any components.

I know for standard fans those resistor cables are small, but for my Nidecs wouldn't I need a higher wattage resistor to deal with the extra draw compared to a normal fan?

Ahh I totally forgot about that. Found some 2W resistors on ebay, might work if you use them in parallel to spread the load? I don't even how much resistance you need baaasmiley.gif

I've seen it said for conventional fans (0.2A - 0.3A) that you run ~50 ohms for 7V and ~81 ohms for 5V.

I wonder if this remains true for a fan with 4x the draw.

Once time I did it with older thermaltake pump. Resitor went black and burned through the electrical tape. And I know some people who have used the 7V voltage hack for many years without any damage.

because resistors use (waste) power. PWM/voltage/phase frequency control does not do so by design (but a tiny little bit through inefficiency). You'll never see a large motor speed controlled via a resistor in a non-academic setting.

lol, a million dB would probably blow the planet apart (it's a logarithmic, not a linear scale).

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got stuck reading all the stuff at the bottom about the db ratings. Yes, 1,000,000 DB would be some bad stuff.
