Have any Define R4 users experienced blue screens when decreasing fan speed using the integrated Fan Controller?
I've been using it fine for the first few months since I bought it, but for no apparent reason it started getting wonky and giving blue screens these past few weeks.

Specs:
Intel i5-4670k
MSI Z87-G41
Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM
Cougar RS650W PSU (Which has proven to be a 600W)

I'm currently ruling out only my PSU being the source of the problems due to the inability to regulate the voltages going to/fro the motherboard.
Can anyone suggest any modular PSU solutions? Thanks a bunch!

The only reason I can think for that (other than there being a possibility of it overheating with slower fans) is that there is a problem with the 5V levels (loading, etc.) or a problem with the 5V wires. The way the fan controller is wired is weird, and I wouldn't have ever guessed it was the case if I hadn't tried to power it via an external 12V PSU during building and testing. For whatever reason it appears that the 7V and 5V settings pull from the 5V leads (although this is impossible unless the 7V is really 5V and the 5V is really 3V or something...). I meant to get a multimeter and check them at the fan connections, but I forgot.

In any case my PSU has a 2 wire Molex connection with only the 12V leads connected. At the 12V setting on the case, all fans spun fine... but at the 7V & 5V settings they would not spin at all, and an LED fan wouldn't even light the LEDs - so I conclude that there is no power being drawn from the 12V leads of the Molex connection at all. I confirmed this by connecting a much lower current external PSU which provides both 12V & 5V (all 4 leads of the connector) which despite being a 1.5A PSU, vs. 3A in the first PSU, allowed the fans to operate at all 3 speeds.

I'll try to remember to bring my meter in to work so I can check the voltages at the fan connections at each setting, and if/when that happens I'll report back here. If anyone else hasn't done it by that time that is. biggrin.gif

I think some time ago it was discussed in this threat. I am on a phone so I don't have a link actually....

PSU wise I would recommend you a be quiet or Fractal but at most a Corsair one especially the rm series, because it is semi passiv and you can change to sleeved cables, they are all made by seasonic, which I would suggest also.
If you don't mind the sleeved cables for the future than just get one that is on sale. You will be fine with all of the brands.

Does anyone know if they make HDD brackets for the ODD bay on the Arc Midi?

I'll be removing the entire HDD cage to make room for my water cooling loop and I'd like a spot to put my HDDs.

Could always just get somethin like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816119027

And then keep the faceplate for that 1 slot in

Thanks, that looks like it might be the ticket. Do you think stacking two drives on top of each other in there would lead to heat issues?

Unfortunately I need one bay for my fan controller, but the one cyphon linked may work. Thanks!

You will only really be able to get 1 in there with the mount i linked. I also would not stack HDDs on top of each other. SSD would be no problem to stack

With an OCZ PSU, I got a BSOD when I changed it, and with a Seasonic one, my motherboard got fried from it.
