Done and done! Welcome to the club.
Edit: Well, all the stuff came in so here are some pix.
All the fan connectors, cables, etc. from various sources (mainly Performance PCs & Best Byte Computers)
I took one look at this and thought, man, ehume was right. This is just too much work. lol
So with the tools I have, I proceed with the fan tails
..and today we'll just use the 2150 rpm ones. Some basic specs for this fan are below and if you want the complete spec, here's the link
- Speed: 2150 RPM
- Noise level: 30.0 dB
- CFM: 69
- Max Static Pressure: 28 Pa
Since this fan only has 2 cables (ground which is black and +12V which is red), it was pretty much a straight forward procedure (black to black and red to yellow cable). Since I ordered direct from Nidec-Servo online store
, there wasn't an option to add a third cable for fan speed sensor so it'll have to do for now.
And now to test it...
I can feel the air blowing out from the fan pictured below from at least 2 feet away.
BTW, sorry about the mess in the back of the case. I've been meaning to organize it.
Took out the old fans and yikes! I'd have to clean it first (last time I blew out dust it was like a month ago).
Put everything back with the new GT 2150 rpm (D1225C12B6AZ-00) fans in place
After I booted up the computer, first thing I heard was some whirring sound. It's definitely louder than the AP-15 so you will need a fan controller (for those of you that are waiting to pre-order in this thread
). The noise they make (2 fans in push/pull) reminds me of my old 38mm high speed Panaflo (FBA08A12H1BX)
when I had one strapped on to the Megahalems. It's a little loud but not to the point of being annoying. Temp is also looking better than with the AP-15. I definitely saw at least 2-3c drop (cleaning out the rad may have helped also).
I'll see if I can upload some vid with sound so you guys could hear it.
TBH, now I'm afraid to hook up the 3k ones since the dB would be even louder. Edited by reaper~ - 11/5/10 at 8:16pm
