    Fan Controller - View 37 RGB

    That's what I am expecting, though a guy at pcpartpicker indicated that the fans he bought separately for this case were not compatible (they were riing plus fans) and he ended up having to get the 9 port controller.

    Fan Controller - View 37 RGB

    I am purchasing this case - https://www.thermaltake.com/chassis/mid_tower_/view/c_00003205/view_37_rgb_edition/Design.htm That page indicates that the case comes with 3x Riing Plus 14 fans. There is also a controller included. I am purchasing 2x Riing Plus 20 fans. Will the controller that comes with the case connect with the 2x Riing Plus 20 fans that I am purchasing separately? Thanks in advance.

    Connecting and syncing Pure Plus fans

    So, Thermaltake built the View 37 RGB case to include a built-in PCI controller bracket that mounts to the pci slots at the rear of the case...but TT left this feature off of the ARGB version. What is going on at TT that they have these massive oversights?

    Connecting and syncing Pure Plus fans

    Yeah, I talked to CS yesterday and was advised that the fan connectors of the fans included with the View 37 are not compatible with the controllers that come with the Pure Plus fans sold separately. I think I made an error in assuming that the included case fans are the Pure Plus. TT's marketing materials refer to them as Plus fans and the pictures of them appear to match the Pure Plus fans. However, TT nowhere that I can find actually tells us what the included case fans are. You noticed yesterday something that I missed and that was the absence of the USB connector. I also missed that the fan connector that connects to the included controller that comes with the case doesn't have the same pin out as the Pure Plus fans sold separately. CS was apologetic and also similarly confused by what appears to be the same fans, but different connectors. Unfortunately, CS wasn't aware of Pure Plus fans in 200mm size, so, I can't even buy them let alone maybe just swap with them. I PM'd ThermalMike via the forum here and also messaged him via FB, but no response, yet. I hope that means he's seen the messages and is tracking something down. What's worse here is that even if I wanted to go with the standard View 37 RGB case, that's $20 more than the ARGB I have in the way. Worst case scenario is that the 3 included case fans in the ARGB may not be perfectly sync'd with the additional fans I am installing. I can't imagine how that would look, so I'll do my case switch and if it works, cool, if not, then I send it all back.

    TT RGB PLUS Ecosystem Overview (Hardware/Software)

    One suggestion ThermalMike and TT...don't make two different connectors for the same fan. I have the View 37 ARGB along with 3x120 and 3x140 Pure Plus fans on the way and I found out today that I am returning all of it. That is because the Pure Plus fans on the View 37 ARGB will not connect to the fan controllers that come with the 3x120 and 3x140 Pure Plus fans. I cannot express my frustration and anger about this. I spent months looking at and comparing cases and fans before settling on this only to realize the day before receipt that TT decided to use different connectors on the fans that come with the View 37 ARGB case than those sold separately despite being the same fan. And absent scrolling down the Design page to see a small pic of a integrated case controller, none of the promo pics of the case at Amazon, Newegg, or even in the gallery on the TT page displays this controller. Why would a consumer even think that one Pure Plus fan would not connect to the controller sold with other Pure Plus fans? To make matters worse, TT customer service wouldn't let me just send them the fans from the case and swap in regular Pure Plus 20s + 1 Pure Plus 12 fans with regular connectors. Even more irritating, if I want to buy the View 37 RGB, well, it costs more than ARGB at the moment. I've only ever bought TT cases, PSUs, fans, etc., but after this experience, I may need to move on. Maybe Mike or the customer service team might see this and contact me to see what we can do.

    Connecting and syncing Pure Plus fans

    Absolutely infuriating...the Pure Plus fans that come with the View 37 ARGB are not compatible with the Pure Plus fan controller you can buy from a retailer. Unreal. Why would they do that? It's the same damned fan. Worse, TT doesn't sell the 200mm Pure Plus fans as stand alone items, they're only available on this case (maybe others). And, worse, they wouldn't even let me send them 200mm fan and 120mm fan from this case for direct replacement with connectors that would work with the fan controllers that come in the Pure Plus 3 packs. Maybe I am being unreasonable, but that seems like an super simple fix if their going to engineer products this way and not make compatible products available to consumers.

    Connecting and syncing Pure Plus fans

    That would be incredibly frustrating if you can't connect the fans that come with the case to the controllers purchased with additional fans. What an oversight that would be.

    Connecting and syncing Pure Plus fans

    Thank you. I wrongly assumed that the controller that came with the fans was a 3 fan controller. My mobo doesn't have a rgb header, so it looks like I'll be using 2 controllers and maybe even be able to connect them to the pci bracket so I can control them all without removing a panel.
  11. Hi all...I am buying a View 37 chassis aRGB with the 2x200m Pure Plus fans up front and a single 120 Pure Plus in the rear. In addition, I am also buying a 3-pack of the 120 Pure Plus and 3-pack of the 140 Pure Plus. In all, I will be running 2x200 front; 3x140 down the right side; 1x120 rear; 2x120 bottom; and, hopefully, a 1x120 on a Cryorig H7 air cooler. I understand that this chassis comes with a pci bracket that can control fans, but it appears that it is limited to 2 controllers being connected at one time. Hence, I am trying like heck to find a how to on how to connect 5 Pure Plus fans to one of the controllers and 4 to the other. Or, alternatively, if I can't run 5 and 4 fans off the controllers, then maybe get my hands on another pci rgb bracket such as comes with the case. Now, I am working with a non-rgb mobo, an Asrock Z97 Pro3. I believe I have sufficient usb ports on the mobo to plug the controllers into. Is there a how-to video for connecting five fans to a single controller relative to the Pure Plus fans? Thanks in advance. Any advice/suggestions is appreciated.
  12. Sent an email to support days ago and no response....uh oh.
  13. The tabs on the top front drive bay cover have broken and the piece will no longer fit properly. I am removing the optical drive I had there and want to install a new Riing fan there, but I have no cover from the top front bay. Does Thermaltake sell replacement parts like this? Thanks in advance...

    Core V31 - rubber grommets needed

    Follow-up - is it possible that the grommets on the v51 case would work? It appears both the v31 and v51 share a similar motherboard tray layout... Could you check that out, please? The reason behind this inquiry is that the middle cable mgmt hole on my case snagged a custom sleeved cable... Thsnks, again.

    CORE V31 & GPU Size

    Hi... I have a XFX R9 280X gpu that is 292mm long and it fits in the v31, but only if the hdd rack is in the bottom location. My gpu is about 2mm too long in order to place the hdd rack in the middle position. Hence, your gpu will fit in the v31 with the hdd rack in the bottom or middle position. If you want to put a fan on the bottom of the case below the hdd rack, then hdd rack has to be moved up to the middle position and you'd want to do that if only to avoid the hdd rack blocking that air movement. The v31 is a great case, imo, because it is modular and has plenty of cable mgmt space. The only thing I dislike is that not all cable mgmt holes are grommeted. That one, really inexpensive thing would greatly improve the value in this case. Good luck...
