Eclipse-Andy Posted August 23, 2006 Posted August 23, 2006 Hello people, a have a few questions. 1.) I modded the fan on my motherboard to the Evercool VC-RE Chipset Fan, following all the steps as described on the video. When i went to plug it in, it only works on molex and not motherboard connection. This is really annoying, not only because it causes me extra wiring, but because the fan goes at 100% and sound like a train. The only reason I installed watercooling was to get rid of the noise. Is this normal or is the fan broken? I have purchased a EK waterblock for it instead to give that a try, but I am not sure if I can get the pipes in and out around my graphics cards. If I cant, I would like to continue to use the Evercool VC-RE Chipset Fan but I need this problem sorted. 2.) I have been having problems with the silicon image on my motherboard. I have 4 SATA2 Hard Drives on the Nvidia sata connections, because they are Sata2. I have 2x WD Raptors in raid 0 on silicon image slots 1 and 2 using a WD secure cable. I have another 2 raptors in raid 0 on silcion image slots 3 and 4 using a WD secure cable. It seems that single hard drives out of each raid disappear, causing the raid to not work. To test if it was the Silicon image, I installed 2 raptors on the nvidia ports in Raid 0 and not had one problem with them. After my latest crash of a raid because 1 hard drive did not appear, I have had enough. I think it is the motherboard, but just to be sure I have installed the new Enermax 1000w power supply to ensure enough power is being provided, but the problem still happens. I am using the latest bios drivers, and the latest Silicon image drivers. I have tested each hard drive individually, all work fine. So I am certain it is the motherboard, but your thoughts please? RMA it? Thanks for your time, Regards Andy Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
