    Should I keep my case fans off the opus?

    Probably has been asked, but didn't come up right away on my searches. Could someone just simply advise me whether or not to wire my case fans directly to the vehicle to spare the Opus' power or is there something wrong with that and should I run them off the Opus. 2 80mm Case fans in a vanity panel. Thanks
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

    hmm.. I never though of using the unfiltered 12v .. but Ithink I'll do it too..

    as long as the power stay seperated it shoudl be fine.. and if it burns a fan.. big deal.. theya re cheap .. I see no adverse effects.. only good things.. then the PSU uses less juice..and makes less heat..

    Make sure of the fan foltage.
    5v may be sufficient for 80mm fans...
    Less airflow would also make for a quieter install.....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
