Outstanding! Many thanks folks.
Hello Sir...Thanks for the feedback, glad it could help you!
Yes, any water cooling leads to air cooling in the end (at the radiator). Whenever you have fans moving air to transport heat away, you apply similar principles as to what i described in the first post: Low revs when the temperature is low, slowly ramping up when it increases, and only in the high temperature range ramping up more rapidly.Would the same principles apply to a liquid cooled system as you have described in your fan curve guide?
Thanks for the feedback, always nice to hear.Thanks for your instructive and informative input to these forums.
I mean, you can select all the text and pictures, copy it into your word processor, and see what it makes of it. I had to make a bunch of small little edits to keep a decent readability here on the forum, because sometimes the automatic line breaks can make sentences or paragraphs look awkward. Also, sometimes i edit the guide when i think i could explain something better in a different way. So then i'd have to redo the document as well each time. So i think it's best if you just copy it into Word or LibreOffice Writer or whatever, and see what happens.Would it be possible to make the guide in to a document so I can print it off for myself?
It depends what this Corsair node is for. If it's only for RGB, then only the RGB cables of the fans will go into it, and the seperate cable each fan has to power the fan motor will go somewhere else. You have to check that, an RGB fan will always have two cables, one for RGB, one for the fan motor (either 3-pin / DC or 4-pin / PWM).3 front fans connected to the Corsair node plugged in to the USB header
Okay, so for the RGB fans, the RGB cable would go on JRGB or JRAINBOW and the fan cable would go to the SYS_FAN header?It depends what this Corsair node is for.

The B550 GAMING EDGE WIFI you seem to use has a whopping eight fan headers, so you could plug everything into the fan headers on the board and have full control.
Probably on a Molex-to-3/4pin adapter like this?The motor cable for the fans is connected to the Molex connector on the power supply. The RGB cable seems to be connected to the USB header.
That's the one! Mine just has one wire, not 4. Same idea though. If I connect the fans to the SYS_FAN headers, would I still be able to change the RGB effects of the fans or just the motor speed? The motherboard user guide just shows the RGB cable and the motor cable but the fans only have the one 4 pin cable.Probably on a Molex-to-3/4pin adapter like this?
And the RGB controller is on a USB 2.0 header of the board, so the Corsair software can control the RGB effects, obviously.
What you do is, you take the fan's power cables off the Molex adapter and plug them into the free SYS_FAN headers individually, then you can control them all. You don't have to set different curves necessarily, but it's good to be able to control them individually if need be.
You can control both, they are independent. Meaning, if you were to only connect the RGB cable and not the fan motor cable, then the RGBs would turn on and you could control the RGB effects, with the fans standing still. Or if you were to only connect the fan motor cable, then the fans would run, but without any lights. If you connect both (to the right places), you can control both.f I connect the fans to the SYS_FAN headers, would I still be able to change the RGB effects of the fans or just the motor speed?
No, the BIOS has no minimum fan speed, it's completely individual to the fan model you are using. There can be no overcurrent drawn from the fan running at very low RPM.Thanks citay. some user experience here from my side, the bios has a minimum fan speed. Probably to avoid long durration over current. I was looking to turn them off on low temp, but I don't think I can... My fans are 4 pinned and after setting it and take a peak after a week or so, it is back setted to DC. I can't explane...
You can always find the SYS_FANx numbers in the manual.Fan headers are numbered, in most cases are numbers like a clock with one starting at top of board and so as you go clockwise around the board top will be one then two, three four and so on.
Hmm, what mobo do you have? I have slide the curve in to the upper right corner and it was still spinning. But I dit the same thing as you, when I just setup my mobo for the first time. And then it did work. So what am I doing wrong. maybe you toke a fix point?
