MCP655 wiring question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
One more noob question before I call it a night. I just got mymcp655-b pump and fan controller today and I was wondering if all it takes to control the pump is hooking up the 4 pin molex to the psu and the rpm wire (the one with on the 3 pin fan connector on it) to one of the fan controller channels. (And yes, the controller can handle the pump) I know I don't NEED to run it on a controller, but if I can have the option for when I'm working on audio that would be great. Thanks.

I've got a MCP655-B also but There's only 1 wire, it's a molex you plug into the PSU for power.

As for the speed control, there's a dial on pump it's self you turn to adjust the speed. Just put it on 4 or 5 as it's quite silent.

This is how it is unless there's an updated version I'm unaware of.

That's the vario version. Mine doesn't have the speed control dial on it, but thanks.

the pump really dose not make a noise, the b version is on 4. now i got a top on mine, but that is so i can use my fittings. Hook the wire to cpu header so if pump dies the pc will power down and not overheat all your stuff in loop. it the tec sencer or pump speed sencer

Sorry bad spelling dyslexia

I guess that is a good point. I'd still really like to be able to turn it down because it's mounted outside my case and, as I mentioned, I do some audio work. However, if nobody has a better idea, I guess I can just run it straight off the mobo.

only #1 & #2 setting I can accept

Pick up one of these, plug pump into the molex and plug the other end on to your fan controller.
