So I built a case and installed three Thermaltake Riing Plus 14 RGB fans (16.8m colors and 140mm). I found that the back of my NZXT S340 case does not support a 140mm fan, but only a 120mm fan. I'd like to add another 120mm fan to the case and add it to the Riing Plus RGB software to control it as with the other 3... but I can't seem to confidently identify which 120mm fan would match the existing Riing Plus RGB 14 setup. I did buy a single Riing 12, but it seems to be a different beast altogether... only 256 colors (as opposed to 16.8m) and can't be directly connected to the already installed Riing Plus RGB 14 controller... nor can the controller that came with the Riing 12 be daisy-chained to it. Which 120mm fan would be compatible with this Riing Plus RGB 14 setup/controller? And where can I buy it, as Amazon doesn't seem to sell just one (only a 3 and 5 pack)... ? Oddly, Newegg seems to have one, but is $104... as opposed to a three pack which is only $98. ####? Thanks, Dave
Hi ^^ I saw another Thread to this topic, but since that guy overuses like 10 fans it doesnt fit for me Its my first (really completely) selfbuilt system. Ive got a suppressor f51 case and bought two more fans 2xSilentWings 140mm pwr But before I place the question, the case inside: I place the HDD, and SSD at the back of the case. I already removed both 2x3 HDD holders Nothing more special: 1xblueray writer, 1xgraphicard, 1xpowersupply, 1x16cm cpu cooler I'm not sure if its soooo important, but different cpu/cards generates different heat I name them here: Cpu Skylake i7-6700k (Ive read its not producing as much heat as cpu normally does) and msi gtx 980 (not sure about that one) Now the question, since Im new to this: The placement of the two additional fans? I googeled but I'm still not sure....and you big and strong guys surely have experience in this. At the moment Im thinking of placing one at the top blowing air outside at the same time im not sure if I shall place it closest to the rear fan or the 2nd closest and the other fan... Mhh also at the top?...At the bottom (taking air inside)?...At he front (taking air inside; im not sure if this fits above the preinstalled 200mm ^^')?... Ive read about negative and positive airflow and it says like negative is better cooling but more dust, positive airflow is better for passive cooled graphiccards. So I would choose the negative one, since my card has two spinning fans, I think that means its active cooling and the suppressor f51 has dust filters all over the everything. yeah, a girl needs help here ^^ thanks for all coming suggestions
