Default Coolermaster V10 Help - please

I just installed my cooler master v10 on a btx motherboard (that was fun) and I have the 4-pin molex connector hooked up but not the small 4-pin connector and my fans aren't running on my V10. Which isn't a big deal on the desktop but could be in game. Any ideas why the fans don't work?

Umm, the molex connector is for the TEC, and the small 4-pin is for the fans. You need to have them both plugged in.

Yeah, got that

The problem is this. I have the 4-pin molex connector. However, I have this gay BTX motherboard on a Dell XPS 710. The CPU Fan connection is an OEM 5-pin with 4 wires. It's not the small 4-pin connector like the V10 has. Now, I have to figure out how to correctly splice the wires in order to make the V10 fans work.

If this helps. The connection is to the bottom right of the CPU. It's a 5-pin flat connector
Just found it this motherboard model is UY253.



And that 4 pin connector is what's on the V10.

Well, thanks to any of you who looked at this, but it can be deleted.

I solved the issue with a simple 9 volt battery to tell me the positive and negative after working for 6 hours on this.

I wonder if this is the first V10 mounted to a BTX motherboard (CPU at 45 degree angle) with thermal adhesive and spliced wires?

I don't know, but it may be the first one ever mounted to a Dell motherboard.

Don't they lock the bios so you can't overclock?

Not on the XPS systems. I'm running my QX6700 at a nice 3.2GHz and it maxes out at 86 C with the Prime95 torture test.

Yeah, that's way too hot for that chip. Max temp on that CPU is mid-60s.

Get yourself an adapter that converts to whatever plug the V10 comes with. You should be able to fit a molex cable to it. Newegg usually sells them.

This is why I never buy Dell, but good luck.

86 celsius seems to be the max temp on this thing with the V10. I have the fans working on it now. Just a little engineering had to take place.

It seems to be running fine in game and I ran prime95 on it for 12 hours without incident. If it fries it fries. I've gone from 2.6 - 3.2GHz and it's all good right now. That 86 celsius is 100% usage on all 4 CPUs.

And you're right -never buy a Dell. Luckily I didn't pay for this thing.

I thought most CPU's shut down at around 75-80C?
