Is it worth looking into a cheap fan controller instead at this point since 4 pwm splitters would already be costing me $20+. (and I would think a fan controller would eliminate the need for splitters) Or are fan controllers only good for non-pwm fans?

There are many PWM fan controllers but they are a bit more expensive

I'll test the SP120's again but I think I just leave them on full speed anyway because they aren't too loud for me. I'll double check.

that's the thing - they can be controlled, but only to a certain degree - more so the SP120's I have are on my antec's RAD. So, doesn't the fans have to be linked with the CPU, and not the motherboard?

When I render or P95, the AF140's ramp up in speed.
However the Sp120's, on the antec 920 always remain at 1500RPM.

Hmm, I was gonna unplug my SP120's and try them in a different header to see if I can control it but I bundled up the cables and tucked them back behind the rad real neat and tidy and don't really feel like messing with it today. I'll look further into it this weekend. My kids are running around going nuts, time for the Daddy Police to lay down the law, and cook dinner.

OK some testing with the fans:
-I stuck the AF140 case fan in the CPU fan = result was it running like crazy
-I stuck the SP120's in the Case fan header on my motherboard, and they wouldn't adjust to change - more so antec couldn't pick them up (obviously)

So now I'm back on the same configuration I had before. Still being puzzled if it is possible to ramp DOWN the SP120's when not being used.
I looked at the pin configurations of the antec 920 CPU fan MALE sockets and found that one was [i.ii] where only two ii would be used, and the other was [iiii] thus 3 out of the 4 being used.

Any indication on any of those?
And more so, if I got a PCW adapter, would it work?

I've got 620s on my cpu and my gpu, looking to upgrade the fans. Leaning toward cougar vortex because they're $10 each right now and supposedly vaguely comparable to the $20+ noctuas.

That 4th wire is control and I do not think it could be used in the Antec

I dare say snip it, but don't blame me if it blows up, all the other pin outs match it should still work.

Hi - i finally got my new Antec 920 installed last night - Can anyone tell me if my temps are good - since i had to return my first 920 - wasnt cooling good enough - pump issue -

My liquid temps which the Chill software shows at idle in silent mode - with Cougar HP fans - 34C - depending on my room - how hot it is etc, - early in the morning - it shows up at about 31C

as days goes by etc, - goes up to about 34C -

i am using a 3770k on a UD5H Board - my case is Corsair 300R - i have two top fans - pulling air out - two front pushing air in - and one side window fan pushing air in -


Are these good temps for stock at idle and just normal browsing etc, - - i have not stress tested it yet etc, - so dont know on load -


i just want to make sure these are more or less the Avg. - the pump is working at 3000 - i want to make sure this is normal

thanks

Yup that's ok. Idle temps being higher than mine, but that depends on room temp too.
post #2918 of 6068
ok - when i first start it up - its at 31C this is the Chill software - then goes slowly to 34C where it stays - my room is warm - i cant sit in my shorts easily in the winter - we get alot of heat here -

i just wanted to make sure its nothing to worry about or anything wrong with unit etc, -

nop looks ok.
post #2920 of 6068
really - i was worried something was wrong - so if i get these temps at 4.4 with everything else auto -

how can i get to 4.5 or 4.7 wont it be too high temps and shut it down - ? i though i had to keep it at 90C max during load


i was thinking of changing the fans to Corsair HP fans - high static pressure model ?


do you think that would help ? i notice the static pressure on the corsair fans are 3.1 - - CFM is 62

my cougar fans say 119 CFM - static pressure i think is 2.2


should i change them and see if any difference ?
