If you are looking into fans - look for 4pin ones.
I'm still having problems figuring out how to control my 3pin SP120's.

Noctura seems to be getting the best reviews but the highest price

I would appreciate someone helping me out with ramping down SP120 3pin fans...on the antec920:

Hi yeh sure the rear fan i kept as stock antec fan but the front was a ernimax Appolish red led fan.
This also came with its own wire that had a temp sensor so it self adjusted fan according to temps of system.

Spec

Dimensions (mm): W 120 x H 120 x D 25
Color: Red
Bearing Type: patented Twister Bearing Technology
LED type (patented): Circular LED light with 12 diodes
Speed (RMP): 900 (+/- 10%)
Air Flow (m3/h): 63.78
Air Flow (CFM): 37.54
Static Pressure (mm-H2O): 1.088
Noise (dB(A)): 17
Input Power (W): 2.4
Input Current (A): 0.2
Rated Voltage (V): 12
MTBF: 100.000 hours
Accessory: 4 screws, 3P to 4P adaptor

What other 4 pin PWM fans work with the antec 920 software and give off good pressure as the SP120

i didnt realize the SP120 are 3 pin - so i canceled order


i want a 4 pin PWM fan that can cool better than stock fans - something i can control with the Chill software -

high pressure rating - equal to the 120 which are i think 3.1


any suggestions ??

I've figured out a solution to the Sp120 problem (with the help of a friend)

Was simpler than I thought -> you don't need any 4pin fans, as long as your motherboard supports Q-fan you're OK.
I plugged my 2 SP120's into the fan headers on my motherboard, and set the limits on the bios.
That's all I needed to do.

I've currently got, on order two 3pin to 2x 3pin adapters (y splitters) so that i can put all my fans on my motherboard, and control them all from the bios.

The only disadvantage is that the antec software is no longer used to monitor my fans.



And by BIOS settings I mean like this:

i was trying to avoid that and use the chill software - - since both fans would work at the same speed - with the Chill software - connected together

on the board headers - its fine - may not run at both same speed same time - should be close enough i would think -

just have to have the CPU header connected - i was told by Gigabyte today that if you dont - it wont boot - if thats true - i dont know for sure

i also just read - that the antec pump wont work full speed if not connected - not sure if they mean with the fans or not - i cant confirm this -


i am looking for anything i with high speed i can control - even delta fans - as long as i can keep both fans under 1 amp load - i take it - with high pressure- i just control it with the chill software

i never tried the original fans which came with the unit -

how bad are they ? i mean are they just loud or do they not cool enough ? does anyone know the pressure rating of the stock fans from the 920 and how many amps it pulls ?

Quite a lot of ideas, and random things you say lol.

CPU fan header connected up to the antec -> pump
Chassis fans connected to the fans -> fan speed (monitored in bios)

As for temp readings -> the antec TAKES it from the bios, and then controls it.
Here you're by-passing the antec software and monitoring.

As for the same speeds -> did you check the screenshot?
Almost identical if not the same.
If anything, and you are worried, get a Y splitter -> then for sure they will run at the same speed wink.gif

Up to you - but I'm just saying that the SP120's now work for me, and my PC is dead silent as it used to be with the antecs with no load.

Just to clarify, the temperature reported in the Chill control software is the temperature of the LIQUID in the system, it is not taken from the bios or some such, but from the pump itself. Also the Chillcontrol settings are stored in the pump, so you don't need to run the software all the time.
It's that very reason that I use PWM fans for my 920. Changing fan speeds according to water temperature gives a much smoother fan profile.
As for fans, I use two GT AP 30's which would easily fry the Antec pump if hooked directly to it. So I have the power leads of the fans hooked to molex connectors and just hook the PWM wire to the pump to control the fan speeds.
Using molex connectors allows usage of all those awesome high powered fans out there and you still get your pwm control. tongue.gif
