    Messed up temps

    So, I have an H100 water cooling thingy that I bought, installed 4 Scythe Ultra Kaze's in Push/Pull configuration, stuck an NZXT Sentry Mix on that front bay and hooked up the Scythe fans on it. Thing is, I have to keep the fan controller on the lowest setting all the time, the higher I make the fans spin, the higher the temperature gets on my CPU, WHY IS THAT? -.-

    Thats weird. Don't mean to sound like an A$$ but to me it sounds like the fans are either both pulling or pushing?

    Is the intake of air into the case equal to the output, when fans turn at max? If not, you´re creating a relative vacuum, and then less cooling air particles are pushed through.

    Hello

    How are you measuring your temps? What application (or applications) are you using and what are those temps.

    Confirm that the pump of your cooler is actually working please.

    And please indicate the direction of air flow from both fans, I too think you might have the fans pushing against each other. Test this by removing two fans and noting down the temp difference between 4 and 2.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    I can't remove them, well, I could but it would be a pain in the ass to get back in as last time I almost destroyed everything in my computer putting it in... Yes, the UK's are the 3K RPM ones, each fan has it's own channel in the fan controller so they aren't sharing. I already know the fans are in push/pull though, and it might just be the stock fans in the case not in-taking enough air the UK's can suck in... The case is a HAF 932, the radiator is mounted at the top, there's also one UK fan at the back exhaust, the door fan and the front fan are stock. Should I replace those? If so, what fans would fit them?

    thats 2,4 amp..

    You need a heavy duty fan controller, to run them on 1 single channel..

    Or else, its just a matter of time, before your controller will go up in smoke..

    Ok 1 on each channel.. 0.60 amp X 4

    Huh...? The Sentry Mix is 50W per channel, the Ultra Kaze's are 7.2W each fan, which means that I could put up to 6 fans on one channel... I just can't find a 3-Pin Y splitter to attatch 2 fans or more to one channel.
