what fans ?

Postby GoNz0 » Wed Jul 28, 2010 11:28 pm

i use noctua fans and the TMS does a bad job controlling them, the 140mm needs to be set between 2 and 5%, over that and its heading for full speed.

what 120 and 140 fans do you use for a broad control spectrum over the 0-100% ?

I'm using Koolance 12025HBK fans. The minimum setting is 10%, which is fairly quiet, and used during idle and gaming situations in my rig.

Only during stress tests do my fans ever have to spin up to 20 or 30%.

I'm also running a Kingston HyperX fan on one of the TMS-200 headers, but that has to be set at 50% to keep running. It runs from 50-100%, but only displays RPMs when at 95-100% for some reason.

I don’t have the answer directly for this question. But found some interesting behaviours
My system setup is to run two power supplies first Corsair HxX1000W to supply system and second Coolmax 420W to run all cooling system and additional funs
My first Setup and startup

TMS-200
Fan 1 -3 SCYTHE DFS123812H-3000 120 0.6A
TMS-EB200 Expansion Board
Fan4 SCYTHE DFS123812H-3000 120 0.6A
Fan5 Corsair XMS3 CMT6GX3M3A1866C9 Memory cooling Fans
Fan6 Old Pentium 3 CPU fan for other custom parts cooling

Old power supply 230W

Image

All fans Run full speed from 10% to 100%

Coolmax 420W

Image

All fans Run full speed from 10% to 100% but speed was 200 Rpm faster

Coolmax 420W fan 1 -4 disabled

Image

Another surprise 100% -50% full speed
40% fan4 200 Rpm faster fan5 600 Rpm slower
10% slow speed

Corsair HxX1000W

Image

Looks like all fans run correct every step down generate lower speed Fun 6 despaired at 80% fun 5 despaired at 50%.
I run additional test and connect fans in different configuration
TMS-200
Fan1 Old Pentium 3 CPU fan for other custom parts cooling
Fan2 Corsair XMS3 CMT6GX3M3A1866C9 Memory cooling Fans
Fan3 SCYTHE DFS123812H-3000 120 0.6A

TMS-EB200 Expansion Board
Fan4 -6 SCYTHE DFS123812H-3000 120 0.6A

Image

It looks like TMS-200 board handle better Old CPU fan and Corsair cooling Fans than TMS-EB200 Expansion Board. This improved reading fun1 despaired at 50% fun2 despaired at 40%

My conclusion is that for some reason there is not problems with Fans but rather power supply.
I will test more fans and different power supply and post later.
