genosfear Posted November 22, 2013 Share Posted November 22, 2013 Hi, I've had the Corsair link cooling kit for a while now and although it's had a few issues (fans spinning faster at 40% than at 100% and the program crashing fairly regularly) I've stuck with it because it does pretty much exactly what I want from a fan controller. But last night after my computer was on for about 10 minutes, I noticed the lights on the Enermax fans weren't on and after I took a closer look 3 of them weren't spinning. Two of them are on my H70 cooler. So i shut the computer down and turned it back on again. All 9 fans in the case came to life, but about 2-3 seconds later, all but 3 stopped spinning. I've drawn a quick diagram to show how I've got them all connected to the node. http://24.media.tumblr.com/14507ce3edb4c725ebbb1ead160ca68e/tumblr_mwok85Jlyp1qzvn1yo1_1280.jpg So all but the last 3 fans are powered from the node and both molex connectors powering the node and the 3 fans are on the same cable coming from the psu. I've unplugged all the fans from the node and tried connecting 5 of them to it without using any splitters and that resulted in the same 2-3 seconds of power and then the fans stopped spinning. I tried it a few more times with a different combination of fans (using between 1 and 5) and connections from the PSU (all running though the node) and they all gave varying results from the same start stop process to having 1 or 2 fans that continued to spin as windows loaded. I've also uninstalled and re-installed the software and unplugged and plugged everything in and out so many times I've lost count but I'm completely stumped as to what the problem is. I'm pretty sure that the problem is with the node being able to power the fans (seeing as the 3 fans which are connected with a 3 way splitter and it's own molex connector continue to work when the others don't). But the fact that the fans all start up when the computer is turned on means they're all getting power, but something is causing them to cut out. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
