Hardware & Reviews / Re: How to connect fans to a MB
« on: July 07, 2019, 03:49:29 PM »
Ha, found an adapter, which has 2 female sockets and therefore makes it possible to connect both 3-fan sets together to the PSU.
That part makes sense now...power is solved :-)
I would want to control fan speed and lighting via MB/AURA software.

In my 1st post I described what fan sockets I've got on my MB.
There are two more things I've got to understand.
1) Can you have a look at my first picture and just focus on the 2 cables/plugs on the left and tell me if I have to take off this 4-pin female plug (the one with the red and red/black cable) and connect this 3-pin plug to the MB? I think I have to, otherwise there's no way to control these 3 front fans by this AURA software. This plug would fit the fan sockets on the MB, but has only 3 pins, the MB socket has 4 though.
2) As mentioned before I've got only 2 (labelled) fan sockets on my MB. How do I connect my 3 fans (two sets of 3 and this single one at the rear)? The Asus rear fan female plug actually does fit on the male socket on the LIAN LI hub. Should I plug it in there? I don't know if the wiring is the same, but it seems ground is matching as there's a white dashed line on the LIAN LI and Asus cables and that seems to indicate it's ground based on the labeling on the LIAN LI hub. Otherwise I need to plug the data cable of one of the fans either somewhere else into the MB or use a splitter cable, which I don't have atm.

Cheers for your patience  :)

Thanks again. You'd fix that up in no time if you had it i front of you I'm sure. It must be a simple job, because I couldn't find anything on youtube explaining how it's done. Based on the way the sales guy at umart was talking I got the impression I need these button controllers.
Out of both of them there are these Serial ATA cables (see picture) coming out and I'm assuming I have to connect them to something. It can't be the PSU as the sockets are completely different, so that probably means it must be the MB. I had a thorough look, but can't find a socket taking these sort of plugs.
I may just need an adapter, but that doesn't make sense to me. Asus case with built-in fans and Asus MB should match...otherwise the sales guy should/would have said something I guess.
I called this Serial ATA cable SATA before. That may have confused you.
There is a plug on the built-in fans which goes into the PSU. However, I wonder where the 3 LIAN LI fans get their power from.
Here another picture of one of these Serial ATA plugs I need sockets for.
One of the pictures shows a kind of hub which was coming with the LIAN LI fans. I wonder what it's for, fan speed control or RGB lighting control. It takes 6 cables. Might be good to connect the 3 front built-in fans (RGB as well) in order to control them more easily.
Must be very difficult for you help without having it physically in front of you...seems I need someone to take a look at it.
Thanks for taking the time to help  :)

Thanks mate. The problem is, there are no sockets on the MB for these 15-pin SATA plugs.
The Asus MB and case manuals don't say anything about the connection of the built-in fans. There is a sort of reasonably detailed manual with the LIAN LI fans, but it still doesn't make sense to me...probably lacking too much basic knowledge.
I'm not surprised too much that the LIAN Li's are causing me grief, but having an Asus case and MB, hooking up the completely wired built-in's should be pretty straightforward I thought.
Btw, the 2 plugs on the left are from the front built-in's, the plugs and controller on the right belong to the LIAN LI's.

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.
Thanks

Will miss this one as well. May be good for the start of the next season provided there's the usual break in between.

My expectations weren't high for this one...thought a bit it'll be an early night. Done only very few laps over the weekend. Setup was a copy & paste from Imola with a gearbox adjustment.
During practice I had a bit of close racing with Freezer trying to figure how you can deal with these fast moving obstructions there on track...and what it feels like going off the ideal race line there in the banked turns, wherever this ideal line actually is. I haven't been able to work that out. So I stayed in the middle to be as safe as possible.
Of course we had a couple of contacts ending up in drama because of me making mistakes. So I thought extrapolate that with a bunch of other cars around you...hm, need a lot of luck tonight ;-)
Yeah, and I got plenty of that. No major dramas, very few slight contacts, but managed to keep the car on track apart from the start of race 2 I think.
The finish of race 1 with I think AGK and Bacchulum was pretty exciting and that one worked out well for me too. First I was just stuck behind them going side-by-side and then a gap opened up and I slipped through...very lucky.
Otherwise I was racing by myself, pretty much no draft at all.
Cheers. I think that was my last race for this season unfortunately.

Wally, sorry, I'll miss this one.
Have fun.

Maybe you could run two series sort of parallel...I mean on a 2-week interval...one week AC, next ACC and so on. Just an idea...if others like it as well.
I'd prefer not to have too much chopping and changing. I'm just gathering people's thoughts, but at this stage I'm leaning towards an enduro round in between AC seasons.
That would be good  :)

That comment by Nicki Thiim is a bit disappointing.
I don't think Kunos is on the right track with this one...wished they got the basics right and then work on eye candy, not vice versa...that's just assuming they actually do work on the basics.
I purchased it quite some time ago, but I'm too busy...or maybe lazy to set it up. So far money wasted...
Just try it yourself... I ride kerbs perfectly fine. It's no different to AC in that regardless. I've had quite a few good pick up races online.
Ok. Yeah, GT3's are my favourite race cars and I'm sure it looks awesome on a single screen, but I put a lot of effort in my rig and them coming out with this, not even supporting triple's is just wrong in my eyes. I wasn't aware of it when I bought it.
However, don't wanna spoil it...hope you've got a lot of fun with it  :)

That would give me a bit more time to learn a new track (haven't done enough laps on the Deutschlandring by far) and prepare for a race and there's even some realism to it, as real racing series aren't on a weekly interval either...again, just an idea  :)

Hmmm, yes it was in the "2nd corner" even though the corners are very long. I think given that it was the second corner and the move by the red car was unexpected and unnecessary, and it impacted the blue car so badly, I will call that a penalty. Thanks for your input.
If it's the second turn than it's definitely the right decision...imo anyway.

I won't use ACC without triple screen support...as soon as they've got it I'm keen to get into it. If you run a Tuesday's series I'll give it a miss, but possible show up for some fun runs on Thursday instead, unless that's on ACC as well.

What do you make of this incident? Watch in particular the red car in front.
<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/T8kmNbUD0dI?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
I'd call it pretty bad driving by the car in front...unnecessary move. It wasn't happening in the first two turns where we're supposed to stick to our lines, was it?
It wasn't intentional...so I'd say no penalty...really bad luck for the guy suffering from this move.

I'm at 3:20, but I've hardly managed to get a full lap in. There's this fast left-right hander before it goes into the curvy bits...manage to do it full throttle and so happy about it, but then fu** always brake too late for this sharp right-hand turn crossing the bridge...back into the pits...new car...again...
No idea how you can do a 3:13 or 3:14 there  :(

Sorry Joe.
