I got one of those Gelid PWM fan adapters for a Noctua PWM fan that's on a G10 and the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Performer C 120mm AIO cooler for a GTX 970 but I couldn't get the speed sensor to work.

I finally gave up and connected the fan to the motherboard.

I'm running them on five cards with no issues whatsoever. Have to wonder if you got a bad one. In fact, I didn't think they would work on MSI cards due to their six-pin connector. But I discovered that the fifth pin is vacant and the sixth is apparently for controlling the LED effects. I plug them into the four remaining pins and they work like a charm.

All I want to do is connect the stock fan that comes with the G10 to the GPU. I will be using one or two Antec tri cool fans on the 120mm rad.

The Evga GTX 980 Ti and 980 have two separate plugs for the lights and fans. Am I missing something?

Use the Gelid adapter for the stock G10 fan. I think it'll work, even though it's only a 3-pin fan. If not you'll have to replace it with a 4-pin PWM fan. The light connector won't be used any more. This is assuming you're connecting the rad fans to the mobo. I use a powered four fan adapter and connect all three (dual rad and G10) to the adapter and run them at 60%. But I do use a PWM fan on the pull side of the rad, which I know gives me control. One leg of the adapter is for the PWM fan.

They also make a powered three fan adapter, but they're hard to find and cost more. I just tuck the extra end in somewhere.

The lights had a tiny 2 pin from what I could see. I couldn't push the clips back because I loaned out my precision screwdrivers to a friend so just replaced the TIM for now.

I am ready for the next time I try.

I plugged a two pin red LED from the front panel of an old Dell into my MSI 980. Gives it a really neat appearance that screams performance. But I like bling. All my cases have a mix of blue and green LED fans. The single red LED mounted on the 980 offsets the other colors quite nicely. I have a couple of amber ones I may plug into my 970's. My lady says I'm 55 going on 15. And that's OK! tongue.gif

Alright, though I don't have the ability to run Afterburner or Precision since what I am aware of those don't run on Linux. I tend to control the GPUs' fans through XServer.

Hmmm, seems Amazon got the cheapest. Probably grab from there since I have Prime.
Was there something else I need for the bracket?

A powered fan splitter and a 4-pin fan for push/pull. The 4-pin PWM fan needs to plug in to the control header on the adapter for speed control. I run mine at 60%. I also plug the fan on the G10 in to a header on the splitter. I'm not sure you'll have speed control without the PWM fan. Haven't tried it.

EDIT: You'll also need 1/2" screws the same size as the ones shipped to mount the rad. I stole screws from two indiscreet light switches and then replaced the switches. You won't need to use the washers that come with the AIO to mount the inside push fan. That's where I use the long stock screws. All they hold is the fan. I use the washers to mount the inside pull fan with the short screws and a small screw driver. I also had to Dremel part of the screw mount on the fan out, as it was continuous from front to back. Use the washers here, as you're holding all the weight of the AIO when you mount the assembly. You mount the entire rad unit with four standard fan screws to the case. This allows for quick disassembly. I can pull a card with rad and all in just a few minutes. Sounds a little complicated, but it's not. And the quick break down is well worth the effort! thumb.gif

I think the 950 is outperforming my 770. Haven't kept good track of it, as I've been working my butt off. I've also discovered that RAM speed does indeed affect PPD on 0x21 units, thanks to @bigblock990. This throws a new curve into clocking my cards. Borked a unit on the 770 last night by gettin' greedy. But I did cut my TPF from over 14 minutes to 12:33. Wish I had researched RAM overclocking a little more...
This is just one of the many reasons I love Folding!
