I had posted this on Toms Hardware without any results so I'm hoping somebody here can help me again:
 
Okay so I bought this fan hub controller:
http://www.phanteks.com/PH-PWHUB_02.html

And my motherboard is this:
https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z270P-D3-rev-10#kf

MB has all four pin connectors.

I have the white fan plug from the hub going to SYS Case Fan 1. The case is a Phanteks P400a with 3 fans at the front that are only 3 pin connectors.

Using Hardware Monitor the fans are always at 1400rpm, no matter how freezing or boiling things get.  This is causing my evga RTX 2080 to start sounding like a jet engine again before I got the new case.  I feel like I'm back to step one ~rips out hair~
 
Anybody know why it isn't changing the fans based on the temp curves I've set in the BIOS?

Thanks
 
Edit: Maybe replace the front three fans with high quality 4 pin noctua ones?  Which I was planning to do anyway... but one step at a time I just wanted to get the hub working first so I can have six fans total

When connecting the Hub to the MB, make sure the FAN 1 is connecting to the MB fan header, of your choosing of course. 
 
Also, make sure you're not connecting the included fan remote to the hub because that could be bypassing the MB's controls.  If you're controlling 3-pin fans, make sure to use a 3-pin fan cable to the MB and if it's 4-pin fans, make it's a 4-pin cable from the hub to the MB.

What does the motherboard, fan hub, and case fans have to do with the video card? Can you please explain what you are trying to accomplish? How is the video card fans being affected by the fan hub and motherboard BIOS temperature curve? I don't understand. Did you unplug the video card fans from the video card and plug them into the fan hub or something? Very confused.

A sketch of your wiring, pictures, and an explanation of what you are trying to accomplish would help a lot. Paragraphs of confusing explanation don't help much in comparison.

Well ok.  You probably shouldn't buy anything until you figure out how to run what you have.
 
Did you read the fan controller manual, read it again, read it a third time, and feel that you fully understand it?
 
http://www.phanteks.com/assets/manuals/PH-PWHUB_02.pdf
 
Did you read the motherboard manual, section 1-7 regarding header pins and section 2-2 Smart Fan 5 Settings?
 
https://www.gigabyte.com/...support#support-manual
 
I'm going to guess that this is your case fans:
 
http://www.phanteks.com/PH-F120SP-LED.html
 
It is a THREE PIN fan, it has GROUND, TACH and VOLTAGE.  Speed control is done by CHANGING THE VOLTAGE.  If they are running at a straight 1400rpm, it is because they are are getting a fixed 12V and running at their max speed.
 
When that fan is connected to the motherboard header directly, the bios fan control needs to be in VOLTAGE MODE for that header.  It will then follow whatever control scheme you select, controlling speed by reducing voltage.
 
According to the fan controller manual, it can take either PWM or variable voltage control signals into the INPUT port.  It translates the signal for both types of fans, which are plugged into FAN 1 plus the correct headers on the controller.  It requires separate 12V power from a SATA cable.
 
If your controller is hooked up correctly per the manual and you are getting a fixed full speed from the fans, chances are that is what it is set to do in the MB bios and you need to tweak those settings.

Per the manual, the MB fan header you want is plugged into INPUT on the right side of the controller.
 
FAN 1 is a universal 3/4 pin out for your primary fan, where it will read the RPM signal.  Seems excessively confusing.

So, again, what does this have to do with the video card fans? Is he connecting the video card also to the fan controller? Or is the inside of his computer case getting so hot that it is causing the video card fans to "go nuts"?

Unclear. Confusing. Posted in wrong section?

Did you install TWO POWER CABLES for your GPU like we strongly recommended in the other thread?
 
If there's ANY question that your card isn't running well and you haven't installed a second power cable, YOU NEED TO DO THAT.

I don't see this working properly unless the fan hub is plugged into a 4 pin plug on the motherboard and all fans plugged into the hub are 4 pin as well

The Hub takes a separate 12V power off a SATA connector, it takes either PWM or Voltage speed control off the MB, then it translates the input speed to output PWM or Voltage control depending on the port. 
 
In the manual linked above.

I'm 150% sure you're using the wrong plug on the hub.  Should be motherboard header SYS CASE FAN 1 --->  INPUT on the hub. 
 
Your main case fan (probably use the middle one) plugs into FAN 1, the other two into the 3-pin ports.
 
No mention if you used the SATA power cable.  Use it.
 
You did not read the manual.  Hopefully nothing is broken.

Thank you for that correction because I read somewhere late last night that stated to put a cable there and to the MB for some reason.  Should have dug deeper as that INPUT design really makes it a bit confusing since it makes you think it's only for the included remote.
 
For example at the back of my Aquaero 6 XT controller, the RPM header is meant only to send a simulated signal from the controller to the MB.

 ...which is about cooling down an EVGA RTX 2080 Super I paid over 600 bucks for and an Evga BQ Power supply that cost 80 bucks.  Didn't clue in on that part eh?
 
Thanks for your all your "help."   Oh wait, no, that thanks was meant for GTXJack and Kevin
 
Please continue your crusade in another thread, maybe somebody there misspelt something you need to report?

I'm 150% sure you're using the wrong plug on the hub.  Should be motherboard header SYS CASE FAN 1 --->  INPUT on the hub. 
 

 
Yes sir that is how I have it.  As I did in fact read the manual ;) the input plug is for either MB control, or the remote control device.  I chose motherboard control.   Thus it is input on the hub to the SYS CASE FAN 1
 
kevinc313 
 
Your main case fan (probably use the middle one) plugs into FAN 1, the other two into the 3-pin ports.
 

 
Yeah that's how I have it.  According to the manual it says to recommend (They should say "Critically necessary or PWM won't work) using FAN 1,  as that's the one that sends the PWM signal, thus, I assume, synchronizing all the other fans plugged into the hub to the same speed as FAN 1?
 
kevinc313 
 
No mention if you used the SATA power cable.  Use it.
 

 
Of course I used it.  
 
kevinc313 
 
You did not read the manual.  Hopefully nothing is broken.




I read it multiple times, over and over.   Nowhere in that little two page picture diagram with a few measily sentences does it explain what could prevent the fans from changing speeds via the motherboard.  No troubleshooting guide or anything of that type.
 
GTX jack said to get PWM to work the input to the mother board needs to be three pins, because the fan in FAN 1 is only a 3 pin.  The hub comes with only a 4 pin INPUT to MB cable. Is that correct or no?
 
I'm new to this enthusiast level cooling, it's not my intention to frustrate you, but still I appreciate the help you've given.

Yeah the controller comes with a 4 pin cable from the Input to the MB. I did it exactly as the manual said.

This.   My case only has 3 pin fans.  I'm betting it's required and the manual isn't saying this.

OK, at this point it has to be the motherboard settings.  I would recommend going over the bios settings again and making sure they are set correctly.  Using the 4 pin cable makes no difference, if you set the MB to voltage speed control it will not send PWM and will vary the voltage.  Try both PWM and voltage control.
 
If the hub continues to not work, just plug one of the fans into the MB and make sure it is being controlled correctly via voltage.  I don't know about your MB, but mine gives active temp and RPM readouts as you are adjusting it in the bios.

I can assure you that before I got the hub I had those 3 fans connected to each of the three sys case fan headers. They worked perfectly and adjusted based on heat.   I'm not sure if you saw my thread about how much the temperatures dropped from around 84c on the card down to around 67c after getting the new case?
 
Right now my hardware monitor is reporting that the sys fan is 17405rpm, then jumps to 384rpm, then back to the high number.  Yeah I really believe those figures lol

Well, if it's installed correctly and set up correctly, there's not a whole lot any of us can do about it if it doesn't work.

These hubs are crap:

Good find.
 
Yep sounds like a turd.  Thanks for taking the time to help I appreciate it regardless.   Now I just am burned out and feel like downstepping  to a GTX 1080 and forget about this heating crap.

Per the manual, the MB fan header you want is plugged into INPUT on the right side of the controller.
 
FAN 1 is a universal 3/4 pin out for your primary fan, where it will read the RPM signal.  Seems excessively confusing.
 


Thank you for that correction because I read somewhere late last night that stated to put a cable there and to the MB for some reason.  Should have dug deeper as that INPUT design really makes it a bit confusing since it makes you think it's only for the included remote.
 
For example at the back of my Aquaero 6 XT controller, the RPM header is meant only to send a simulated signal from the controller to the MB.
 





I was like.   Okay I'll give that a try.  ~Sees price~ Hrm, okay maybe the next month that comes along with 3 paychecks ;-)

They just released a mini controller.  Granted the main controller you see has a bit more features but the other controller can do quite a few things.  They are only PWM based, the QUADRO and the newly released OCTO, both for a lot less OR the controller you see above with or without display which is called the Aquaero LT are either PWM or Voltage, your choice per channel but they are a learning curve if you have the patience for them.  Usually best used for complex loops otherwise grab the more affordable versions for just air cooling and fans but again they have to be PWM (4-pin).  Just do some more research if you're interested in Aquacomputer's controllers.

I'm a little unclear why you need a fan controller.  Your MB has a CPU fan header, two fan headers, and a pump/fan header.  I assume you're using an air cpu cooler.  You can only fit 6 fans in your case, though more with push pull radiators.  This is where y-adapters come in.
 
Each header usually supports 1 amp, while a single 120mm 2000rpm fan pulls about 0.1 amp.  You can safely put four of those on one header with normal y-adapters.  You can move your existing three fans to the top and back of the case as exhaust running off one header, then get two Noctua 140mm 2000rpm industrial to mount in the case front intake running off another header.  Three of the 120mm 2000rpm industrial would flow about the same and work on one header but cost more.

If you were feeling really frisky, you could get two 3000rpm 140mm industrial fans, but they would each need their own header due to drawing 0.55 amps each.
 
Some Noctua's come with a y-adapter and extension cable, the industrial series don't.

Kevin, don't forget the startup on some of these fans will exceed the limits of the header so it's best to be cautious and not put too many powerful fans on a single header.  

Could get a simple fan hub that is self powered and grab PWM signal but you'd need to make sure you have PWM fans for it.

What do you think is the max safe practical limit?  I haven't recommended anything over .55a for the single 140mm 3k, the dual 140mm 2k are .36a and three 120mm 2k are .3 amps.
