  1. My latest build is a Ryzen gaming/streaming/development build in this little case, the Masterbox Lite 3.1. The case sadly only comes with one case fan so I bought two static pressure fans from a well-known line and put them on my intake end to make the most of the small intake slits on the top and bottom of the front of this case. They worked great! Plenty of cool air quietly trickling in. The problem was the exhaust fan could never get hot air OUT fast enough during high load uses. I chalked this up to the un-identifiable and annoyingly rattly stock fan as just not being up to task and replaced it with an air flow fan from the same series as the intake fans. Slightly better at best! Then I found the real problem: the exhaust grill pattern on the back of the case ends a bit shy of where it should extend to accommodate the perimeter of a 120mm fan. The vast majority of air a fan pushes comes out as a ring at the very edges, and putting my hand on the intake side of the fan revealed that this ring of air was being REFLECTED BACK INTO THE CASE! My solution for now is mounting the fan on the exterior of the case and temps have dropped greatly at the expense of looking pretty weird and sound not being as dampened. I just wanted to post this here for potential buyers to know about this issue as it will require some modding to make the air flow work as intended in this case. Alternatively you could buy a smaller fan but all the great quality and selection is firmly in the 120mm range. As you can see in the close-up photo, the perimeter of the fan is mostly blocked on all sides! Mounting the fan outside solves this issue since it can create a vacuum to suck the air out without the ring of exhaust being blocked. I hope CM addresses this issue before manufacturing more of these as I'll be taking a drill to my new case to correct this, most likely.
  2. I really thought these were going to be the best fans on the market. Theyre a combination of a good coolermaster fan reminiscent of the xtraflo fan from the 212 evo, and RGB LEDS which can never go wrong. The big issue is noise. These things sound like a lawnmower. The noise gets worse at higher rpms and much better at lower rpms so its not bearing noise, its a form of coil whine. Theres also control issues such as the fan not even going to 0 rpms on pwm, and if you use voltage, the leds turn off as you lower the voltage. The PCB is too bloated. The design has 4 super bright leds, a pwm mosfet, probably some led mosfets, 4 giant radial coils, an overcomplicated driver and finally, the leds are powered off of the fan header instead of the simpler solution of just using RGB power.
  3. Hello you cooler fellas and gals, this would be my first post and in good tradition it comes with a question attached. So lets hope you guys can answer or point in right direction, (no, not the exit door ) So I have a Asus TUF Mark 1, this motherboard has a 1x dedicated pump 4 pin header and the 2x 4pin CPU fans Now it would be my hope, that I could connect the MasterLiquid Pro 240 pump to this dedicated pump header and the fans to the 4 pin fans CPU1 and CPU2. Would that be a feasible and acceptable setup? ill admit Im not familiar with the MasterLiquid Pro 240 or liquid cooling in general, but much research has been done on this lately. Ive read the manuals and searched around but maybe Ive missed something. Im replacing a Corsair Hydro H100i V2 with this MasterLiquid Pro 240, Corsair has gone on the naughty list, and wont even get a piece of coal, but will definitely get the boot... soon. So here is hoping.
  4. Nepton 240m setup

    Hi everybody! I have put together my first build just yesterday. The nepton 240m is connected to a Gigabyte z170x Gaming 7 mobo. And the case is NZXT n450, it has it's own PWM hub. The question is my Nepton connected to the mobo correctly? The setup is as following: - nepton pump is connected to "CPU_FAN" connection - nepton fans are connected to the NZXT PWM hub - the NZXT PMW hub is connected to "CPU_OPT" connection Any idea if this is ok?? Because so far I get very weird readings of fan speeds with CPUz and Gigabyte EZtune. It always says "CPU_FAN" 2800RPM & "CPU_OPT" 400RPM This can't be right, can it? I mean the pump can't reach 2800? The whole setup makes almost no noise btw, including no pump sounds. But all the fans are spinning. I've attached a screenshot. Does anybody know if this looks right or not? Don't want to fry my nepton. Thanks!
  5. I've just completed a new build with a Maker 5 case and am having a few issues with the front panel. I also have a question about fan control. The only LEDs that are lit are power and fan (I assume the "gear" shaped LED on the left end is power). The HDD activity LED jumper is plugged into the MB, but the LED does not light during activity. None of the USB port LEDs are lit, although the ports are working. What can you suggest as a possible problem with the LEDs? I am using the LED/fan control unit that came with the Maker 5. It works, but I'm not sure how this interacts with the L/H fan speed button on the front panel. Is there any doc on this LED/fan control unit? This is a great case. Id just like to get these few issues sorted out. Thanks for any assistance,
  6. Attached is an image of where I connected the y connector and my pump as well as an image of my fans speeds. How do I drop these, i mean they are loud at these crazy speeds. I am pretty sure I plugged everything in right as I put my y connector to the cpu fan header and I put the pump to a system fan header(my board only has 1 cpu fan header). The pump is running nice and quit and keeping my cores chilled at 30C when at load of 4.0GHz. The only thing is that tmp2 goes to 63 while temp1 and 3 never cross 50(doubt I need to be concerned). My main concern is why the fans are running so fast, this is my first liquid cooler so controlling the fan speed is all new to me. If Anyone could tell me whats up or how I can use speedfan to drop my fans from 2400 and 2900 I would appreciate it. Edit: after playing around I see that the 2400 was my fans(dual linked which makes sense) so I dropped them to 1400(dead silent). It seems the 2900 is my pump, as stated before I used a system fan pin which are at 65%, should I leave it or max?
  7. CM (Standard) Fans

    I Upgraded my system and as case took the CM Storm Stryker. i5 Processor and re-used my Old Cooler. Wat wonders me is that all though the case looks Good and works fine I can not buy any of default mounted Fans in (so far) any known stores! Further more I wanted to modify my cooler with 120x120x15 mm Fans preferably with a White theme. And Yes CM sells some of these size Fans but only connected to a Cooler which I dont need. Is there a shop where I can find the mentioned Fans anywhere in Europe? Thank u,
  8. Silencio 352 Fans

    I am in the process of completing a build of the Silencio 352 case, and was expecting the fans to be the Two powerful XtraFlo fans- Wide range PWM fans- 600 to 2000 RPM 4-Pin 9-36 dBA Instead my case has 2 fans, both 3 pins, see the enclosed picture of one, on the internet I noted a 2008 review which noted the model number and described it as below. Model number: DF1202512SELN • Size: 120x120x25mm • Voltage: 7~13.2 VDC • Speed: 1,500 rpm • Airflow: 50.4 CFM • Pressure: 1.93 mm H2O • Noise: 25.6 dBA I have used multiple other Cooler Master Cases in the past, none of them designed to be quiet, but this is the noisiest. Suggestions concerning how to proceed. It was an Amazon purchase, and the motherboard etc. are in place. I am disappointed that the fans described in the website, are not the fans that were in the case. Other Amazon comments include that the fans included were 3 pins and that the are not PWM, but I went with the website description, and only noted these comments after system was up.
  9. Ok, before I screw this build up, all parts are Cooler Master. Haf 912 case with MegaFlow 200mm Fan & Seidon 120v cpu cooler. The 200mm fan will not fit as an exhaust at the top of the 912 case with the liquid cooler installed, right? Looks like not even (2) 120mm fans will fit on the top even if I have the Seidon cooler in push or push/pull config (2 fans). Only (1) 120mm will fit. I guess I just wasted money on the 200mm fan. I already have one in the front. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  10. Frontal fans for Silencio 452

    Hi to all, i'm Filippo and i'm italian and this is my first CM case, i've bought a Silencio 452 for my new pc and i'm very satisfied of it; i have an AMD FX8320 (cooled by a Zalman CNPS10X Optima) on an ASUS M5A97 EVO R2 mobo, 8gigs of DDR3, a fantastic MSI R9 280 , a Samsung 840Evo 120gb SSD and a couple of hdd (1Tb WD Green + an old 250Gb). My problem is the air intake fan, the Silencio has a good 800rpm 120mm CM fan, but for the AMD 280 is too small, i want to add maybe another 120mm (a Scythe Glidestream) or better a 140mm (same), but i'm looking at the holes in the front of the Silencio and i'm quite in doubt... is there enough space to mount a 140mm fan here ? Look at the holes: I don't think that i can fit a 140mm (or even a 120mm) here... Can you please give me some advice about my problem ? I don't want to order something that than i've to return back.. PS. sorry for my "spaghetti-english"
