FANS CONNECTION WITH TUF-B760 PLUS WIFI D4

Hello there, I'm new on this word of PC. You can call me Tj, if you want.

Here's my email : Tristanjordi23@gmail.com

I just received my first PC and everityng was ok until I tried to configure the rpm's and lights of my case's fans.
Before that, let me explain something that I think is very important. So, in total, my PC has 6 fans, 4 are been included with the case; (Dispocision: 3 fans frontal, 1 rear.) And 2 more that are on the top. (Those ones are from a Liquid cooler).

The real problem here, is that I couldn't configure those 4 fans in BIOS, Armoury Crate, ICLUE and ohter sofwares. Is like, the app detects thats fans but can't read his own rpm's. Only I can configure the AOI Pump and the CPU fan (that one I think is the liquid cooler's fans).

I think that the proble is with my fan controller, this is also included on the case.

COMPONENTS:

1. Nox Hummer Quantum (4 Fans, 1 controller), 2. Tempest Liquid Cooler 240 (2 Fans, 1 pump), 3. ASUS B760 PLUS WIFI D4 (As main motherboard), 5. i5-12400F 6. RTX 4060Ti (16gb), 7. Kingstone NVME 4.0 SSD (2TB) and 8. Seasonic Focus-GX (750w) 80 Plus Gold. (As PSU)

I would apreciatte any help. Thank You very much.

Yes, I think so. Hard to tell for sure, but I think you just have a simple, low cost hub. But, it will do the job. You don't really need to control the case fans individually most of the time. If they all turn at the same speed (3 in, 1 out) you should still have a positive pressure in the case which will help to minimise dust. Just run the fans at the lowest speed that keeps everything cool. HWInfo will be useful to read the fan speeds and give you various temperatures. You should still be able to control fan speed vs temperature in the BIOS or you could use Armoury Crate to do the same. You'd just be controlling one fan speed which will be transferred to all four.  

I think you'll be fine, but you could get a more expensive USB connected hub if you wanted to in the future. For example, hubs like the Corsair Commander Core XT with iCue software will give you more control over each fan, new RGB patterns, better fan curves etc. But really that's all mainly a luxury.  You can also get better quality fans with more LEDs as well, but again, no need really. Whatever you do, stick to one brand so that it all works together properly.

Hi @Tj23KLK,

Which header is the fan controller connected to?

13900KS / 8000 CAS36 / ROG APEX Z790 / ROG TUF RTX 4090

Header, the fan's main controller, cable and connection to motherboard is a 3 pin connected at the botthom of the motherboard, where says: ''ADD_GEN_2_3''

Hi, this is an addressable RGB header, there should be another cable routed to a fan header in order for the motherboard to receive a tach signal to control fan RPM.

13900KS / 8000 CAS36 / ROG APEX Z790 / ROG TUF RTX 4090

Ok, iI see 1 cable at botton right inserted in a connection called: ''HDD_LED_RESET'' and another cable connecte at top right called: ''5V_D'' just below to a connection called: ''CPU_OPT''

Most fan controllers that I've seen use a USB connection which goes to the motherboard and then there is usually a connector for SATA power. Then each fan would be connected to the hub. For each fan, you would plug in the ARGB connector and the connector for fan speed. Normally these will have stickers on them to identify them. If you can't work it out, post some images of the controller (and cables) and also and the cables coming out of each fan. For these types of controllers you would normally use software to control the lighting patterns.  

Some simple controllers just use a SATA connector for power and then a button on the case to change the lighting pattern (each fan ARGB header is connected to the hub). For fan speed, in the simplest setup, one cable goes to just one motherboard fan controller, then to the hub. The other fans are then connected to the hub and all run at the same speed as the single motherboard fan header that has been chosen. 

Hard to help without images though. 

It sounds like your AIO is running fine and that normally would be connected to the CPU fan header. Often, it's a single cable to that fan header, just to read the speed of the water pump. The CPU fan header is usually chosen to avoid the motherboard thinking that no CPU fan is present. The AIO water pump and the radiator fans themselves are often controlled by the AIO unit which plugs into a motherboard USB port.

Ahh that would be! My case with those fans arr connected in a hub, then a sata cable fron the PSU gives them the energy, also I satélite a cable that goes inside the case which is the button of the case to change the colors.

 

So it means that the only one fan connected to the motherboard, represents all this 4 fans?

Ok!!! Thank you very very very much, maybe in the future I buy a better hub controller or better fans.
