fans and fan controller

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm gonna ask a very stupid question now:

the fact that my rear outtake and top rear outtake fan are now connected to a Y-splitter and to my fancontroller, does this mean they only work at 50% when i fully power the fans through my fancontroller? Or do they work at the same speed like when they were connected both individually trough a molex connector?

a 2nd question:
after reapplying my front inttake led fan (cm advanced II 690) I can't seem to stop the vibrating noise coming from it. Did i tighten the screws too hard? What should i bear in mind while attaching screws to a fan?

thanks!

It depends on the channel output of the fan controller. If you have two 10W fans and the fan controller is 10 Watts per channel, the fans will only receive 5 Watts each (or one will receive 10W, depending how it chooses to split it).

For the second question: It's just the fan vibrating against the chassis. You can buy rubber fan-thingys (not sure what they're called) that attach between the fan and the chassis to dampen the vibrations.

Website isn't working. Just use Google, find the watts per channel of the fan controller. Usually, 120mm fans draw between 3-6W, it depends how powerful they are. My guess is that the ones in your case will be around 5W, so any fan controller should be fine.
