Hi, I recently bought an NZXT Guardian and have installed all 3 fans but the LED fan on the side does not start up or light up. I have connected it to the PSU the same way as i did the front fan. Any ideas?

Can't attach 200mm fan to NZXT PHANTOM side panel...Only 2 of 3 holes match as the NTXZ fan is slightly smaller than case. Should I drill new holes or is an adapter avalible?

I would think that an adaptor is on the wish list so I would get a piece of flat aluminium or steel ( sheet) and make one to do the job rather than drill holes

How to disable LED light in a CPU fan

<p>Some desktop computer towers, also known as a processor with decorative LED lights on the fan. LED means light emitting diodes. This is a small, lightweight, durable savings of energy that goes into a variety of colors. It connects to a device with two metal terminals of the connector is similar to a power cord. This can affect a beautiful, but can also be irritating. If the computer in your bedroom at night, these lights can affect your sleep, so it's important to know how to turn off the LEDs on the fan. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Remove the computer side. Tighten the screws on the side of the CPU. Slide the face up and away from the side of the CPU. This ensures that the fan and the LED lights on the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Pull the LED on the bottom and away from the fan with a plier. Hold the head with an LED light pressure and drag it to yourself. It is easily accessible from the release of the fan, because it only comes with two small clips. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Flip the CPU. Slide the side in the slots on the CPU. And tighten all the screws through the holes on the side of the CPU, making it in a clockwise direction. <br />

I recently installed a lutron skylark dimmer w compatible gu24 bulbs on a 3 way connection. Everything works properly but the bulbs only dim slightly, is this normal or is something defective or improperly...

Are you using compact fluorescent? Are you sure you purchased a dimmer that is for incondescent lighting only? fluorescent lighting only? Fan motor control only? Are your lights led? I read on the instructions for one company that you can only use one dimmer on any one 3 way system. Did you put 2 dimmers on a 3 way system?

Side fan on the NZXT Apollo does not spin or light up, a wire that is coming from the side fan is loose but i do not know where to put it back in.

Depending on which motherboard you have installed there should be a 3-pin or 4-pin fan header connection.

Check the motherboard's documentation, there should be a diagram showing position of the connections- they will be labelled SYS_Fan or PWR_Fan.

Most fan headers possess a foolproof insertion design. When connecting a fan cable be sure to connect it in the correct orientation (the black connector wire is the ground wire)

Hope this helps you. Thanks for using FixYa

Computer STartup Problem

That is an impressive wait. You must be an OR LP to have tolerated that battery manipulation; hopefully the surgeons aren't up nights over the 3 lost insulated forceps.... It sounds as though the system is dissatisfied with the CPU fan speed or another power/cooling interface component (CPU over 90 centigrade, chipset over 95 centigrade, the power supply fan running, etc.) and thus shutting down immediately to protect itself. Do all those things check out, particularly in the BIOS power/cooling section? How about fan and power connections on your videocard being right and jumpered accommodatingly?

That is, you could connect tach fans on any spare 3-4 pin headers and see if favor comes your way. The system will spin them slowly once it boots and you enable automatic CPU/fan control (and power savings) settings.
