On some motherboards this is the case, but sadly not on the Sabertooth z77.

It does support voltage control for the chassis fans, but not for the CPU fan frown.gif Someone mentioned connecting the CPU fan to a chassis header, but I have no idea how that would work out.

Using a voltage control capable chassis fan header should work just fine for your CPU fans. I connect my top exhaust fan to one of the CPU fan headers to make it sync with the speed of the CPU fan. It all depends on how you setup your chassis fan control. As long as the fan speed rises fast enough when the CPU gets hot, it should be fine. And the 140mm fans from C14 have long cables. So they should have no problem connecting to your chassis fan headers.

Hmm, I will do that then. Thanks for the quick answer!

Corsair uses what appears to be proprietary connectors for the H100's.

And yeah, I know it's a bit of a mess. You should have seen it last week, was even worse. biggrin.gif

You could just run the fans off a CPU header and control via software, speed fan or to a fan controller

Can anyone in this thread tell me how well the NH-U12P SE2 performs in comparison to the D14 (and with different fans)

Had above with 2 TY-140 fans and custom shrouds.. improved cooling by 3c
Changed to Phanteks TC14PE for another 9c improvement.
PC14PE is same / couple degrees better than D14 wink.gif

thanks for the info. im considering to use the Corsair SP120 fans on it, any comments on the theoretical performance ? (btw, why everyone forgot this heatsink?)
