You need to plug your fans into the fan controller instead of the motherboard, but whatever you do dont hook the cpu fan up to it or you will get issues apon booting

New Phantom case. MSI P67-GD80, I7-2600k, 16g ram. Fans and leds come on go off and come on continually.


You sound like you built it yourself. I have the same case. what you need to do is check the wire that are preziptied to the back of the computer and make sure all those that come from the fan controller are plugged into the sidefan slots tightly, otherwise they will slip in and out causing the fan controller to not recognize the fans(turn off the leds). Most of the problems that happen with this case come from wires not being plugged in hehe.

Why is the xblade heating up when booting


The overheating problem could be a faulty fan or the heat sink is clogged with dust.
Your compter fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust.

How do I find a manual for the ULT40278. I'm trying to figure out you would connect 2 fans when some motherboards have only one fan connection?


Motherboard fan connectors typically use a small 3-pin which looks like this: zero_awake.jpg
the left connector is a female connection (the side with 3 holes) the middle and right are male connections, has 3 metal pins:
  • Black: GND (ground)
  • Red: +12VDC or +5VDC (12V or 5V DC - direct current)
  • Yellow: Tachometer signal (used to read fan speeds)
NOTE: Wire color may vary, and some fans or motherboards may control fan-speed.

Some fans use a 4-pin connection, which is generally a CPU fan connector but not always:
zero_awake_0.jpg
This pictures a 4-pin connection, but may look different from other 4-pin connections because the wires are covered in a black sleeve, which keeps them safe from harm and to reduce potential negative affects on airflow created when there are lots of loose wires inside a computer case.

zero_awake_1.jpg
This photo shows a 4-pin connection attached to a motherboard next to a 3-pin connection in a motherboard. While it is not recommended in the case of the CPU's fan, in the case of other internal case fans with a 4-pin connection, it is possible to plug them into a 3-pin connector of the motherboard, but the ability to control fan speed, which is controlled in the 4th pin will be lost.

Though sometimes computers have a way of controlling fan speed on a 3-pin or 4-pin connection even without the 4th pin, such *** voltage regulation and reading tach. feedback. These things are typically things a general user doesn't need to worry about unless their computer is running particularly hot and causing trouble.

In which case, it might be worth investing some money in a fan controller, which takes a power connection, several fan connections (varies based on the controller you get) and gives you the ability to control fan speed externally on your computer case. My controller has nice dial knobs, though some "fancy" controllers have a display and up and down buttons. (Fan controllers would be at your own discretion in terms of price, you can get them cheap all the way up to seemingly ridiculous expensive)

In the event of not having enough 3pin or 4pin connections on a motherboard, it is still possible to add case fans by way of 4pin molex connections:
zero_awake_2.jpg
A female molex connection

zero_awake_3.jpg
A male molex connection

Some case fans run exclusively through these connectors, others have a combination of a 3pin (or 4pin possibly, though I've never seen this combination) and a 4pin molex connector. In this case, the molex connector can connect directly to a cord from the power supply and run the fan. It is possible to run case fans without having them connect to the motherboard at all! Which makes it possible to connect more fans, with less available connections for your fans on your motherboard.

If a fan is a certain connection (any of the 3) and you need to convert it, for example:
  • a 3pin to a 4pin molex because your motherboard doesn't have enough 3pin connectors for all your fans,
adapters are available to change one type of connection to another, at many online retailers (such as newegg.com, amazon.com, or other electronic supply retailers) and some retail stores, Best buy might have something, though you'd have a safer bet at a store like Micro Center which is more specialized for PC building or an alternative PC/electronic store.

To ensure you solve your problem, just be sure to familiarize yourself with the motherboard you are planning on buying (or have) and the fans you plan to have inside your computer. It can be a bit more work to check the specs on the fans and motherboards, but a little work saves hours of headache later.

your electronic tuner in the set may need replacement.
Are you using a remote to change channels it may be the batteries in the remoter that needs to be refreshed.

Computer cases


an at case doesnt have the extra ports than an atx case has, take for instance an atx motherboard has printer port, comp port, usb and ps2 ports near the top left side, an at motherboard only has an at keyboard connector, all the other things are put in an empty isa/pci slot

Here is a picture of an AT motherboard note top right the keyboard port and the white strip behind that is a 1 row set of pins for the power as the switch is in the power supply and not on the motherboard
http://www.pcbuyerbeware.co.uk/images5and8.htm

And This is an ATX motherboard you can see the 20pin atx power connector, because the motherboard has an electronic switch to control the power.

Connecing fans so i can control speed


A lot of the times the way you hook up the fans to the power supply can determine which powe setting they are on. 3 pin or 4 pin connectors? Do the y have switches on them? Some fans have auto, hi and low settings on them.

Some fans will only run at one speed no matter what, make sure you have adjustable fans. YOu can go to zipzoomfly.com or newegg.com and do a search for case fans and find some that suite what you need. YOu can replace fan real cheap nowadays.

Also check to see i you have eom software that came with your case that you may need for your mobo to be able to adjust your fans.
