Hardware & Reviews / How to connect fans to a MB
« on: July 06, 2019, 03:34:53 PM »
I'm lost with putting my new PC together and google/youtube wasn't able to help either.
Maybe somone here can help.
That's what I've got: Asus GT501 case (a set of 3 fans at the front and 1 fan at the rear built-in), Asus ROG STRIX Z390-F motherboard, a set of 3 LIAN LI RGB fans with button controller.
The LIAN LI fans are compatible with Asus' AURA SYNC.
The cabling of the 3 front built-in fans was done and it ends up with a button controller and just one cable coming out of it, which is a SATA 15-pin. In addition to that there's a cable, which should go to the PSU.
The LIAN LI fans have a button controller with this 15-pin SATA cable as well, but the cable set doesn't include a plug matching the sockets on the PSU.

It's strange that I can't find a matching socket on the Asus MB for the fans of the Asus case.
There are 2 4-pin sockets on the MB, one labelled CHA_FAN1 and on CHA_FAN2.
However, apart from the issue of a plug/socket missmatch, there are still (I think) 3 connections needed, i.e. front, top rear.

Yeah, I'm really at my wits' end here...I'm sort of specialised and pretty good at USB connections...haha.
Never build a computer of course.

Assetto Corsa / Race start using clutch...when to engage gear etc.

I find my starts are probably average at best. What I do at starts is, car in neutral, left foot on the brake, right one on throttle keeping revs up when the lights come on.
When the lights go off I engage 1st gear and take the foot off the brake...no clutch involved. Is that what everyone is doing?
Can you engage 1st gear having your foot on the clutch before the lights go off? I checked the Mazda 787 and it seems it doesn't even start rolling on a hill when having your foot off the brake but one on the clutch. So it seems you don't need the brake and it's possible having 1st gear in and one foot on the clutch and one on throttle.

Assetto Corsa / VR - exciting times ahead...

Something like that would probably get me into VR - talking about the PIMAX 5k/8k:
Just need a matching graphics card...should reduce the number of collisions as well.
