Nic C5

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Welcome to the forums!

 

With the NIC C5, there is a y cable coming off the 2 fans to a 3pin header and a 2pin for the speed control.

 

This is just direct power from your motherboard.

 

If you want the fans to run full speed, just connect the 3pin connection only.

 

The 2pin connection is just a basic interface between the power provided to the fans.

It's mean - no?

Hi Kvadrat,

 

The Nic C 4 and C5 have a 3 pin connector which is controlled via potentiometer.

 

in order to give motherboard control you motherboard would need to support 3 pin or voltage level fan speed support.  This is something the NiC C series was never designed for.

 

Normally if you want full motherboard control of the fans you would want to replace the installed fans with PWM fan models which allows motherboard ramping of the CPU fan speed.

 

Also for PWM fan control we did offer a dfferent NiC model such as the F4 model
