Need some help with my new fans

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I've bought 2 fans lately and i'm confused on how to make this work properly.

my rig: CoolerMaster Masterbox 3.1 #TG

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600X

Motherboard: Gigabyte B450M-DS3H

So, I've bought 2x Raidmax NV-R120TP ( https://www.raidmax.com/product_d.php?lang=en&tb=1&cid=27&id=603 )

I installed them in the front of my Case but point is: My mobo only had 1 sys fan slot that's used by the fan in the rear part of the case, and a CPU Fan slot, CPU LED slot, the only way I could make them work was by plugging them into the CPU Led slot and directly aliment them through the PSU, point is I can only control the RGB colors but not the speed of the fans that get too noisy, and even that way i didn't notice any difference in my temperatures having the case closed even with the fans spinning at max speed

Question is: is there any way I can use these 2 fans instead of letting them turn into a waste of cash? Like if theres some kind of splitter for CPU Led slot that can get both a future Water cooling in the back and like leave the 2 fans in the front

Like  connect this: https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/cpu-liquid-coolers/masterliquid-ml120l-rgb/ in the CPU Fan slot and mount it in the back

and Connext the 2x Raidmax NV-R120TP in the Sys fan slot and let them mounted in the front of the case

And have a splitted for the CPU LED slot to connect all these 3 together? 

Kinda lost here, If you have other suggestions on how not to waste much cash and have decent cooling for this PC Case, it'd be highly appreciated.

Sure there are splitters. For fans and for RGB. Do note that splitter means you control them as one single unit, no option for individual controls. For that you would need controller.

Are they all the same or they are different for various motherboards? and is it fine to plug 3 fans on one Sys fan header and 4 RGB connectors on  CPU Led header?

also, which one should I get? Fan splitter or Fan hub with 3 fan ports and one port for CPU Fan, I heard that if u plug the CPU fan there fans will be automaticly varying their RPM in funciton of CPU temps that way

There are 2 types of both. For fans there's older 3pin version and newer 4pin PWM. That's the one RGB fans use. There's really no difference between splitter and powered hub if you want to connect just 3 fans to it. Over 3 fans and it's recommended to use powered (SATA) hub. You still control all connected fans as single either way.

 

With RGB I don't have personal experience so this is purely based on what I've read. The 4pin RGB is different from any other RGB connectors. If that's what fans use, then you can have safely 3 fans per RGB. I think any more requires powered hub. This is based on that I've only seen controllers and 3-way splitters.

 

The speed control with modern mobos is usually done regardless of the header CPU fan header needs to be connected and uses CPU temp as basis for the controls. Dys header might be default set to not be controlled, but that can be changed from BIOS.

I see, thanks for the infos, one last quesiton thought: what shall I get for my CPU Cooling? 

This: https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/cpu-liquid-coolers/masterliquid-ml120l-rgb/ 

Or this: https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/cpu-air-coolers/masterair-ma620p-tuf-gaming-edition/

I heard that 2nd one is more than enough for my CPU but I don't know since my PC Case feels kinda locked for airflow (Masterbox Lite 3.1 #TG)

According to TweakTown, MA620p is better by almost 3C. On personal opinion, 120mm AIOs are only worth it when you can't use decent air cooler because of size of the case.
