post #3791 of 18210
Ok guys, I am back with a few more changes and all I am waiting for now are my demci filters which should be here any day now.

First, I traded out my Vantec HD Bay for the Xigmatek. I took some comparison pictures (below) showing the difference in size and shape between the two cages just in case someone was worried about having space in their build.

I'm going to note that I switched the fan out in the Xigmatek with a Scythe GT AP-15. The change from the 80mm to the 120mm was a CPU and NB idle drop of about 2c. At 4.1 GHz I am currently sitting at 30c NB and 32c CPU with this configuration.

Next, I was having difficulty figuring out a good solution to manage my thinner cables and that would make it easy to switch in and out fan cables. While at the grocery store I came across these little Command Strip cable managers that aren't permanent and are easy to hide (blends in nicely with the SE case). Figured I would share it with the community just in case someone else was looking for a solution to a similar problem.

If anyone one else was looking for a better solution for their cases external usb3 cable, I found a USB3 motherboard header made by Lian-Li which has been working great. It is sort of obnoxious looking but it sure beats running the cable around to the back.

Last, but not least, I wanted to share my new fan controller. Haven't seen anyone with this particular model so took a picture just in case you were considering it. I originally tried the Scythe Kaze Master Pro but really wasn't satisfied with the way it looked on my system. I ended up taking it back and finally came across something more my style and picked up the Lamptron FC Touch.

I will note that it doesnt mount completely flush with the grills, but then again I really don't know if it is suppose to? I think it looks kinda neat, I dunno you be the judge.

And that concludes my little blog, hope I was able to help somebody out! I wouldn't be where I am without this thread.

That's weird. You're sure you were measuring 12V to GND, and not to or from the TAC line? Leave the fan plugged in and measure at the back of the connector where the wires go in. On a 3 pin fan line, it should be red to black (in most cases). It seems manufacturers don't bother following the same color codes when they change the number of wires in a connector, and will often take the 12V line (yellow in a molex) and change it to red when converting to a 3 pin fan connector. This leaves yellow in a 3 pin fan connector for the TAC signal. I have nothing nice to say about this practice. Red should always be 5V, and yellow should always be 12V, and of course black for GND. If the wires are all black then you should be measuring from an outer wire to the centre wire. Centre should be 12V, one outer is the TAC and one is GND. Use your multimeter to make sure which is GND.

well, it's bad frown.gif i was measuring correctly.. BUT.. 2 of my fan controller channels are not regulating voltage frown.gif there is allways 12V and fans are allways on max speed. only other 2 channels are working fine from 7 to 12 V. looks like i need to RMA my case frown.gif nooooooo

Why not get a y-splitter for the 2 good channels?
post #3798 of 18210
i don't think that's good idea.. i'm afraid it will burn those two channels. i'm waiting for an answer from Corsair Tech Support. i'm also thinking about making my own fan controller PCB. it looks very simple. 3x3cm PCB with one potentiometer, 2 resistors and 4 transistors. and PCB around my stock transisotors is a little bit black frown.gif looks like two of them died cause of high temperature ..

Fair enough, but I have read several cases (in this topic) who use y-splitters on their stock fan controller. I've temporarily run 4 fans on a single channel on my 600T (just waiting on the side panel to arrive to go fulltime).
post #3800 of 18210
Yeah I wouldn't put too much on these fan controllers. My last one blew with 2 corsair 2500rpm fans, the stock 200mm at the front, and a scythe slipstream 1900 as exhaust.
