Scythe Kaze Master does not work with 2-pin fans?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Two of my original Storm Scout case-fans (the led-fans) have only 2-pins for the power supply to the fan (the leds have their own 2-pin power supply). I hooked them up to my Kaze Master and they won't turn.

My cpu-fan (4-pin) and the third case-fan (3-pin) work perfectly.

Does this mean I have to replace the other two fans with 3-pin fans if I want to use them with the Kaze Master?
And, if so, what would you guys recommend?

If I do need to replace them, I would like to replace them with led-fans and preferably with a seperate power supply for the leds, so I can turn them on and off (I don't know if all led-fans have that).

Thx for you time.

It should work fine. The RPM sense wire has no bearing on fan control. Have you made sure you're using the correct 2 pins on the fan controller to connect to the fan? Since you're only using 2 out of the 3 wires you need to ensure you get it correct.

Thanks, Jason.

So they should work (I'll check the wiring later today), but I will get no RPM-display?

Correct, no way to get an RPM display from a fan w/o an RPM sense wire.
