Problem with PSU or motherboard?
You are joking right?

Sometimes fans fail, or come bad from the start, or you realized too late that your controller goes bad and doesn't keep the fans at required speed.

You can't get that with a multimeter.

Also some people have a closed case.
You expect them to open the case, disconnect the fans and start testing them with a multimeter, which only tells the volts the fan gets, but not the speed?

Having a RPM sensor is a fine request, same with people wanting PWM or barebone.

Some people even don't like to get the fans and start connecting the pins, connectors, solder a RPM sensor. They just want a plug and play fan.

I hadn't decided whether to withdraw or not. Depends on how it goes.
Just saying, that even if 50% will accept buying the barebones, it doesn't mean that you will have over 720 fans to order. You might realized you have 600.
And as we know some people eventually don't pay, in the middle of offering changing it to barebone might give you a risk of eventually making it 10$ a fan or more, depends on how low the order falls.

If you really want to know the approximate rpm of a fan, you can use the stroboscopic method:

Get a fan with the same number of blades as the target fan. Make sure it has an rpm reporting line. Make sure it is rated for a higher speed than the target fan.

Hook the rpm fan to a controller.

Hook up your target fan.

Look at the target fan through the rpm fan.

Adjust the controller until the blades on the target fan seem to stand still.

Read the rpm fan's rpm on your monitoring software.

Now you know the target fan's rpm.


This is how I calibrate 2-wire fans.

Here you go.. there are 2 cables already attached and there's an empty spot there I believe for the 3rd RPM sensor/monitor.

Please excuse the dust.



Each with a letter on top:

V = +12v
G = ground
S = sensor (that empty spot you see there)

I think if anything we will have the opposite happen. Since these will be sold in a public store its only a matter of time before word spreads and everyone from every computer forum is rushing in.

'G' above the black wire, 'S' above the empty spot. Just an observation.

And no, wasn't joking about my question as it was a noob one. I was thinking something must be wrong with PSU if connected to it or mobo if connected to it in the sense that they're not providing the correct voltages.

But as a noob, I did not realize all the other factors involved. So sorry I asked.

I would definitely prefer the barebones fans.
