[The Official] NZXT Vulcan Owners Club - Page 17

post #161 of 2409
Hello,

I got my new stuff yesterday and mounted the corsair H50 in the front of the NZXT Vulcan case. It all worked out pretty smooth but the problem I'm having is that the cable of the 120mm fan thats supplied with the H50 is too short! It can't seem to reach my CPU fan connector let alone any other fan connector on the mainboard. Is there any way to fix this (Extension cable?) without replacing the stock h50 fan?

Thx,
Problame

PS: Ill upload some pictures when I'm done at work!

Use the built-in fan controller.

Ah thanks, actually thats a great idea but then I should replace the 120mm fan because the Corsair one is 4 pins and not 3 pins so it wouldn't fit

Isn't the system gonna whine if nothing is connected to the CPU fan on the mainboard?

There should be an option in your bios to turn it off. That's what I had to do

I'm finally done but, apparently my fan control on the Vulcan chassis didn't work properly, the radiator fan that was connected to it just completely stopped every few seconds! My CPU and mainboard ran over 50c idle (in BIOS) and I had to pull the plug

Bypassed that by hooking up the radiator fan power directly to the PSU. Runs all smooth now at 30c idle



I'll put up some pics tomorrow, it's evening so my phone quality is unbearable.

I had the same cable length problem with my ECO. I had to get a 3-pin and 4-pin fan power extension cables.

They are available at online stores, such as this one.

Will this work fine front mounted in a Vulcan? As far as tube length from pump to RAD?

EDIT: Why isn't this an official owners club yet?

Yes. That's what I use. In fact, the front is the only place to mount it internally.

The tubes are very stiff, but it will reach and mount there. And you will probably need the fan power extension cables I mentioned above.

Here's what mine looks like:
