    general cooling problem.. any ideas?

    the box the fans came in say they are 4pin for mwm mode. and the motherboard says there are 4pin connectors for pwm mode. I can switch them over but in bios they default to dc. which is weird because tbh i thought they would auto switch to whatever they were but they dont and i dont want to play with the bios settings because as of right now they are running. lol.

    theyve all booted fine the past week. it might have just been issues with it at first but they havnt failed yet this week. ive noticed one of them kinda has to kickstart itself but they all do end up running at the same speeds thanks.

    i thought 4 pins were for 4 pins.. they would have just installed 3 pin on the mobo if they didnt support 4 pin. pwm.

    yeh its 4pin fans and 4pin connectors on mobo i believe theres a switch for it in the bios. i dont wanna plug it in through the psu.. i just recently switched my second harddrive to the same sata cable as the first to save the other one from being used at all. wasnt sure it was suppose to do that thought it was an extension not a second power plug on the same cable lol.

    general cooling problem.. any ideas?

    no splitter 4 fans insignia 1200rpm i bought from best buy. i had to go to two different best buys for all 4. lol. on a b250 pc mate it has 4 system fan ports and one for a pump i dont use the pump port. I've had fan 2 and fan 4 fail to boot on seperate occasions and literally blowing on them gets them up and running with the other 3. its a power output issue. its not enough to power all 4 fans. im sure it doesnt work that way because they are all individually controlled. so im guessing the fans by default settings in the mobo arent getting enough power but i do not see anywhere on the insignia box what power by default they are suppose to be set to so mobo default them at 7.5 volts i think they are running that at around 750rpm. its not a major issue so i duno if i wanna fiddle with anything.

    I'm guessing they arent hitting the required voltage to boot up. they do the twitching thing and unless i blow on them to get them spinning they dont go anywhere. and its usually just 1 of the 4 so im guessing the mobo is sharing the voltage throughout the 4 system fan ports so using all 4 is straining the power output it just needs a boost but i duno if theres any science behind the number.

    general cooling problem.. any ideas?

    this is what i figured.. is there any set rpm i should aim at? they are insignia 1200rpm pwm cooling fans they dont say anything about minimum wattage to run them. the mobos pushing them at 7.4 volts. thats all i know
  8. So, I installed 4 system fans on my mobo because thats what the mobo supports.. anyhow after a few boots everything ran fine i even plugged and unplugged a few times to move things around and after a week or so i noticed one of the fans didnt run on boot.. thought broke the connector pins or the cord on the fan itself.. but noticed if i blew on it it started up and ran continuously.. like it needed a jump start. wasnt sure if it was a big deal or not it ran until i turned it back off but.. after a few days from then on i noticed it wasnt just the one system fan.. the last time i powered it on all but one ran but it wasnt the usual one that doesnt start up. sure enough i blew on it and it started up with the rest of the them.. how are 3 of the 4 fans running and randomly which ones not. they are 4 pin connectors should i run them on the 4pin connector power mode? in bios they are running at dc power... i didnt make any switches because i figured the mobo would regconize what was right.. should i up the power to them? the rpms rated at 1200 but they run at about 740rpm at the power they are putting out on default settings. not sure what to do i shouldnt have to kickstart my fans when i power on lol. thanks.

    are all sata cables the same?

    alright then! nothing to worry about. ty!

    are all sata cables the same?

    just did the hhd is running about 150 read and write and the ssd is running about 550 read and 450 write. does this sound correctish? thanks. and what about optical drives?.. does anyone know how fast they read? im sure write isnt important here.

    are all sata cables the same?

    then i shouldnt worry about getting new cables then. thanks! I wonder if theres any software to test?

    are all sata cables the same?

    i have the sata 3 interface but i wasnt sure if the cable was interchangeable between without consequence

    are all sata cables the same?

    ok so your saying the cord isnt gunna matter because online they are saying sata 2 vs sata 3 but they arent differentiating between just the port or the cable and the port needs to be 3.
  15. upgrading my harddrive from hhd to ssd im worried if the connector itself is fast enough? is there anyway to know.. the ports a sata 3 port but i duno if the connector is a sata 3 connector cable. i duno if there's a difference in the cords themselves. thanks.
