>> Re: LED fan problem
i must say, i've never had that problem before.

what brand Fan is it?

to correct this, i suppose you'd have to look at moving the power feed to the LED's infront of the fan in the circut series, while keeping in mind of any resistors, or circutry preventing the LED's from blowing... or buy another $5 fan.

personally, i'd be keen on changing the fan so that the LED's get full power at all times, but then again i just like to rips**t apart an see how it works :)

as i've never pulled a fan apart.. i'l just shut uo now, as i think all i did was stae the obvious ;)

Ah bummer then...

Hmm, now that I think of it, I could dig my old Antec Smartpower 2 PSU out of the trash....it's 12V rail was at like 13.8V, maybe that'd be enough to get it going :P

Yeah, I may have to take it apart and play with it.

Has anybody else had this problem with throttling LED fans?

I have had LEDs in fans die out. But never "throttle".

Never heard of that before. LED use so little power to light up I cant imagine thats the cause.

I would bet my money on a loose connection.

Any chance you could mark the LED that fails, and see if its the same one each time?

(or are do they spin with the fan?)
