Kingwin Thermal Center CT-02S Review - Installation
(Page 3 of 6 )
Setting up the thermal center can be very difficult. First you will want to go into your bios and disable “shutdown on fan malfunction.” This option is automatically enabled on most popular motherboards; if you forget this step, your system will think your fan has malfunctioned and will not boot. After you finish with the bios settings, shut down the computer. You can remove one of your 5 ¼ inch bay panels…or, as I had to do, remove a drive. This makes room for the controller, and is a good place for you to gather all of your wires together to plug into the controller. To save yourself many headaches of tracing back wires to figure out what is what, label them before you install them into your case. This also makes for quick connections into the controller.
After you disable these options and open up a 5 ¼ panel, you're ready to attach your thermal probes to the components that you want to measure. For the most accurate temperatures you want to get as close as possible to the die, or heatspreader, of the processor.
Place the probe next to the CPU, as close as you can get without the probe going over the die or heat spreader. Use the supplied high temp tape to attach the probe to the CPU or GPU.
Temperature probes should never interfere with normal heat sink and CPU contact. Placing the probe in between the CPU and heat sink can damage your probe and possibly damage your processor. This makes setting the thermal probe next to the CPU die the safest and most accurate place to measure temperature.
Now you can reinstall your heatsinks, if you had removed them to get more accurate temperatures. Instead of connecting your fans to the motherboards connectors, you can simply plug the fan into the appropriate extension wire. These fans will automatically be controlled by the temperature of the component to which the probe is connected.
Another connector that is available on the fan controller is a hard drive activity light; you can have both chassis and controller activity lights operating at the same time.
Once you have all of your connections in and set, it’s time to connect everything to the controller unit. If you did not label each wire while installing, you will have to trace back all of the wires to where they are connected, and connect them to the correct input on the controller.
