Phanteks told me I could run all 3 fans on 1 PWM adapter. Just get another Y splitter and make sure the rpm lead is plugged into the rpm lead on existing Y splitter. I have a mate who is making custom PWM adapters for multiple 3 pin fans.

I found 3 made adapter get pretty hot.. like hot enough to shrink heat shrink. Too hot for me. rolleyes.gif

Phanteks said if it burnt out to let them know and they would give me another free. biggrin.gif

I gave a mate all the info from my Phanteks adapter and he is now making modified versions for multiple fans.. even putting rpm adjustment for each fan so you can control different kinds of fans in system. These use mobo for PWM signal and are powered by molex from PSU.

it's also simply production deviations. I had two different D14s and one was 2°C better than the other (after multiple remounts). Also the fans have a +-10% variation in fanspeed. So one tester might get a Ty-140 with 1400rpm and another one with 1200rpm, wich can easily result in 1 or 2°C difference. That's why testing every cooler with the same exact fans is important too imo.

Indeed. I would guess plus or minus 2-3% is normal margin for air.

Hey I just installed this and have a few questions:

If I have 2 CPU fan headers on the mobo, is there any benefit for using the pwm adapter?
Does the thermal paste take time to cure?
I have a 3570k and an Asrock extreme 4 and was wondering what temperatures to expect, stock and oced to 4.4 ghz, currently I am experiencing 35-40 idle and 70-80 load temps at 4.4ghz 1.23 volts. Its summer so the ambient temps are around 25-30c

Fans are not PWM. You need the PWM adapter plugged into PWM socket on mothreboard to use PWM from motherboard and the 'Y' splitter plugged into the PWM adapter with fans plugged into 'Y' splitter.

Thermal paste needs no cure time.

I have a pwm socket and the y splitter they provided, I was just wondering if there was any advantage to using pwm as opposed to the regular headers on the fans. Also, any idea what my temps should be? I might need to reseat the heatsink as I'm getting temps in the 70-80 range when testing prime95

your temps are pretty normal if its that warm and with that voltage. I have my 3570k clocked at 4.4 as well but its only taking something like 1.16 or so volts under load so it struggles to get above the high 60's when the ambient is around 25c

I have had similar volts going to mine ( with previous overclock experiments) in similar temperatures with load temps in the 70's so its about normal. but a reaseat never hurts - especially with the amount of tim they give you thumb.gif

hm, I'll try undervolting then and if its still the same ill reseat. Phanteks actually gave me 2 tubes because they messed up and gave me a broken mounting kit in the initial order. Thanks!

so undervolting seemed to work out but I reverted to original voltages because it's not recommended when using offset voltages. Side note, is there a difference when using the pwm adapter? I have 2 pinouts for cpu fans (one for 3 pin and one for pwm which also can be used as a 3 pin) so either configuration can work. I'm looking for the most optimal cfm if this matters
