ML10 v2 Additional Fans

What's the best method to add fans? I have no free fan headers (that I can find). Fan 1 and Fan 2 headers are both being used and have proprietary connectors. I need more cooling for my i7-4790k. I've heard of one user running a cable out of the PSU with a molex but the option I want to try is the device linked below that I've ordered. This will be for a CPU cooler, the Arctic 13. Both the cooler and adapter are on the way, do not have them yet. Recommendations / Thoughts?


Re: ML10 v2 Additional Fans

Hi Iszanon,


Good Day. We always recommend the quickspecs and option parts of the server to check for components compatible to be used in the same. We see that you are trying to install a third party fan hub to increase the cooling. We do not recommend any modifications to the server but if additional cooling is required then you can check if the server is receiving/inlet cool air and is well ventilated. Please be aware that if during the modification any component of the unit is damaged then the warranty of the server will be void.


Below is the links for the quickspecs, Option Parts and Spare parts of the server for your reference:-

I just wanted to say that I eventually did upgrade my sever with another fan, and I used the part linked above but I used the version that is powered via SATA. Works great.

Nice find. I haven't seen this small controller before. But it will work great for a few of my projects.
