Hi All!

Thinking about getting a Megahalem and 2x GT 1850's for it.

I had read some reviews stating that these are not PWM compatible.

Since this is a popular setup, how does everyone have these connected. I was thinking of getting a Y splitter and connecting them to the board. Will the bios control the RPM's, or will they have a constant speed. If so is this an issue?

Thanks in advance!

BIOS control is fine. It will adjust as long as your BIOS has the options for it.

i use mine with a y splitter connected to the cpu header. they will have constant speed though as there is no way to adjust them since they are not pwm.

hmm. maybe its board specific. when i got my cooler and fans i tried to adjust the speed. it was no dice. they still run full speed. but ill give that app a try though.

It is board specific. I had one Asus board that did it, then I upgrade to another Asus board and it didn't work.
