Push/Pull fan configuration on EVGA X58 SLI Tags: Heatsinks Configuration Fan Overclocking Last response: July 19, 2010 7:28 PM in Overclocking Share rubenhak July 16, 2010 12:01:36 AM Hi, I'm thinking about setting up push/pull dual config fans on my motherboard and want these fans to be controlled with a smart fan. At this point I got 2 GELID SILENT 120 PWM fans and GELID PWM Y CABLE ADAPTER. I looked to the specs of the fan and it seems like it consumes 0.18 Amps and for both of them it will be 0.36Amps. The maximum for the mobo head is 1Amp right? Will it be safe to connect these fans to my mobo? Thank you very much, Ruben.

After all EVGA are quality and rock solid boards. Hope this helped, Patrick | Report abuse rubenhak July 16, 2010 6:48:40 PM Hi supersnicker, Thanks for feedback. Will connect these fans within next 2 days. will let you know how it works. Also thinking about if it is worth putting a fuse so if for some reason current goes higher it does not burn the motherboard. What you think? will it be an overkill? Cheers, Ruben. | Report abuse rubenhak July 16, 2010 10:12:51 PM Also another question is to which fan should i connect the RPM sensor? the pulling fan or the pushing fan? | Report abuse ace700 July 17, 2010 12:27:53 AM They both should have their own sensor to see if your system is working up to par. | Report abuse rubenhak July 19, 2010 7:28:57 PM I thought that if I connect 2 fans with a Y splitter and both of them have the PWM (4th pin) connected it may affect the precision. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Push/Pull fan configuration on EVGA X58 SLI> Related ressources: ForumAsus sabertooth X58 or EVGA SLI 3 X58 , which one?
