  1. It is more like case by case situation with 4 fans and sep. feed. Also check your bios. I know gigabyte defaults fans to 0.5 rpm. It might affect.
  2. Even though white color draws the most power (255,255,255), it unlikely to cause any power shortage. Unless (1) you did not use separate power feed directly from the PSU, (2) your motherboard has some issues with power delivery through PWM, (3) your PSU has some issues with 12V rail (unlikely but can happen), or (4) you just have a faulty controller. On some systems I observed loss of RPM without using separate feed, so ... What's your setup?
  3. Will be. Controller cannot remember settings because it doesn't have memory to store settings.
  4. remove door fan first, hah. If it has OFF mode, then there might be a workaround, I just not familiar with this case and fan controller.
  5. Ahh, okay. There is a "hard" way of doing this: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=154804 Or just to cut off ground on each led, lol. OR, just buy another fans without LED. TT have pretty decent fans, as well as other manufacturers.
  6. Ok, gotcha. You have 3 pin connector. Red - +5V\12V, Black - Ground (GND) and Yellow - Tachometric Signal to control RPM. There is no way to disconnect LED unless there is a switch for that. If I were you, I would find a place, where all LEDs from one fan goes into 1 wire and then into main red\black wire and cut it off. So, generally the easiest method to cut off LED power supply from main wire, later if you would like to turn it on - just connect back and isolate with electric tape.
  7. Ok, I'm not familiar with this case, but what LED fans do you have? They have 1 single color, or they change colors, like RGB fans?
  8. Exactly. Honestly I do not believe that 2 controllers can have defects at the same time. If you obtained power from Molex --> PSU and still see this issue, that's more likely your motherboard behave not in the right way. Try to connect to CPU fan and see how it would work. That's why I don't like ASRock, they always messing up with everything.
  9. You have to connect to 4-pin case fan socket. It looks like this: Difference is very simple. First of all PWM stands for Pulse Width Modulation It is required to control fans. 3-pin - same thing except you cannot control fans because it doesn't have PW module. Check everything and supply with pictures of how you connected everything. Even what you set up in UEFI. In that way it would be much clear for everyone to understand your problem.
  10. You posted to a wrong section. http://community.thermaltake.com/index.php?/forum/10-chassis/ < --- Chasis section http://community.thermaltake.com/index.php?/topic/1092-core-x-series/ < --- Core X thread
  11. You should connect to 4-pin PWM MB port AND setup fan power in UEFI to max settings.
  12. Thanks! I also redesign for getting power from SATA. Someone might going to use it instead of molex because it will save some space and everything will be neat.
  13. I finally found rig with 6 fans RGB fans xD And works like a charm. I'll post update with video soon
  14. Good Time of the day everyone! I would like to share my own experience of connecting Riing RGB fans together in 1 controller. This guide will divide in two parts: One of them is how to connect 4 fans in 1 controller, using only your hands and pin extractor (or any thin tools like needle). Second part will be about connecting up to 6 fans using same tools as in first case plus 4-pin Molex cable and electric tape (or shrinking tube or soldering iron + tape). A little Preface: Why I decided to divide in two parts? The answer is very simple. MB in most cases provides 12V @1Amp. Usually it will run up to 3 fans at max speed without any drawback (loosing RPM). However in some cases you can connect 4-th and you won't notice any difference. Firstly, (too obvious) power off your PC. (Don't forget that you are doing at your own risk, this is not official Thermaltake guide) We need tool to extract pins from the head. You can use basically anything thin enough to fit a little hole on top of the head. I used this tool: The idea is very simple, we need to extract pins from one head and insert them into another head, so there will be two fans goes into 1 4-pin head. There is enough room to fit 2 wires in 1 head slot. See little holes? Press on them and pull wires. Very simple. Do you see that there is enough space in the socket? We need to insert each extracted wire into proper slot. It would go snug and fit secure. At the end we will get this: Done! Just plug it back to controller and you are good to go! Video to demonstrate: https://youtu.be/jn-x7rH3Pwg Second part! Connecting up to 6 fans. We have to follow same process as before, BUT the big difference is that we need 4-pin molex cable. How it works: 4-pin PWM MB port has 4 pins (oh man, thanks Cap. Obvious!) You can see pinout below: We will utilize power from Molex cable (it's peripheral cable goes directly in PSU) and PWM signal from Motherboard. From the power cable, which goes with fans, you need to extract only two pins +12V and GND .Other 2 leave in the head. Extracted pins you need to connect to molex +12V and GND correspondingly. Here is pinout: Just in case: MOLEX has 2 grounds and it doesn't matter which to connect. What we'll get at the end: Just plug PWM to 4-pin MB fan port and Molex ... to molex, lol. No video yet, but it works If you'll have questions, don't hesitate to ask. Maybe I just forgot to mention something... Cheers!
  15. NOooooooooooo. I just bought 2 months ago Riing RGBs ...
  16. Let me guess.... Reference 780GTX? This is a very bad example, since they had defect, which causes MOSFET to explode. They had a recall on almost all reference 780GTX and you had to do and exchange it. So this is not to due air cooling
  17. By the way, what's the point of having GPUs in liquid cooling loop? I see no performance upgrade between water and air cooling. I have 2 MSI Limited 980Ti (golden dragon) and OC'ed to 1503 - 1970 Mhz in Core/Memory clock and don't have any issues with heating or throttling ... Maybe just aesthetics? Then it would make sense
  18. Oh. Just noticed this MB... Doesn't like it. They have very poor build quality exactly for this MB. You can check reviews on Amazon, newegg, etc.
