Noctua Fan

Post#1 » Fri Feb 07, 2020 7:12 pm

Ive had two fans in a row that wont start spinning unless I flick the fan gently.

What am i doing wrong here ?

Its wired right, you can see when you turn on the unit the fan moves a little. But not enough to get it spinning. Help!

I've heard of the same thing happening to people who bought the 12v instead of the 5v one. Maybe check to see which fan you have?

Yeah sounds like you have the PLX 12v version. This is the one I originally bought as there are many differing videos online. There is even a guy on youtube showing him installing a 12v fan to the 5v controller board and blowing in the wrong direction!

Check that it is the 5v version. If its the 12v version you can either connect the +v end of the fan to the 12v line on the PSU or replace it with the 5v version.
