I use different methods depending on what I want to achieve: - Final position: zip ties (easier to fix than velcro or twist ties, very resistent) - Possible rearrangement (e.g. sata/ide cables or power connectors): velcro or twist ties - Keeping cables together around a path: spiral wraps (quite use...

Mine is also rev 1.0 and also has both type of connectors. The problem occurs when you connect a 3 pin fan in the CPU_FAN plug (using pins 1-3). In this case it seems that in other Gigabyte models the BIOS is able to control the fan regulating the voltage but in our model they removed that feature s...

KlaymenDK, I am just looking at the page you mentioned and I am surprised to see that the PIN layout of CPU_FAN and SYS_FAN2 are different. As a reference to others I include here the layout shown in the manual (Pin No. and Definition): CPU_FAN: 1 GND 2 +12V 3 Sense 4 Speed Control SYS_FAN2: 1 GND 2...

It seems that my motherboard (GA-EP45-DS3R) only supports PWM (they drop support for standard voltage controlled 3 pin fans!). http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/254694-30-ep45-ds3r-maximum-speed This would mean that I would have no fan control for both Noctua NF-P12 and Slip Stream since these aren'...

I have to investigate if my Gigabyte EP45-DS3R motherboard supports PWM (a few googling seems to indicate that it has) in that case I would get the Xigmatek because currently the temperature is not a problem in my E5200 (with stock fan at 870RPM CPU is 24ºC). About the Noctua I am looking at the on...

Noctua NH-U12P or Xigmatek HDT-S1283 with Scythe Slip Stream

Hi, I am considering which would be the best solution in terms of noise and durability for a cooler for a Intel E5200: Xigmatek HDT-S1283 + SCYTHE SLIP STREAM SY1225SL12M (31+9=40€) or Noctua NH-U12P (55€) In the case of the Noctua I have seen the reviews but I don't know how well the Scythe sli...
