Fan Cable Products

Fan Speed Control Cable
The fans used in this case are the slowest speed available in a 70mm size. However, I prefer to run them even slower for reduced noise. Stock fan speed is 3300 RPM, this speed is fine for remote installations where noise is not a concern or where maximum cooling is desired. Advanced users can easily make/modify their own cables. Cable is just a standard fan extension cable with a resistor installed inline to reduce the current to the fan.

Note: There are many variables to optimum fan speed. You may want to run the fans faster with a hot video card. A cool running system can run the fans at slower speeds. For quiet cooling of your Radeon, see the Mass-Air Heatsink System.

Select Resistor Value
33 ohm
47 ohm
68 ohm
82 ohm
100 ohm

Recommended fan speeds:

  • 00 ohm  =  3300 RPM (>3 GHz)

  • 33 ohm  =  2500 RPM (2.8 - 3 GHz)

  • 47 ohm  =  2300 RPM (2.5 - 2.8 GHz)

  • 68 ohm  =  2000 RPM (2.0 - 2.5 GHz)

  • 82 ohm  =  1600 RPM (1.8 - 2.0 GHz)

  • 100 ohm = 1300 RPM (<1.8 GHz)

For lower noise, slower speeds can be used. Get a few sizes to see what works best in your system.

Fan Extension Cable

18" long 3-pin fan extension cable. Use this cable to extend the reach of your fan cable or to build your own fan speed cable.
