this is why you assume nothing.
there still isnt a benefit to use the cpu pwm connector. as soon as you put a load on the cpu, the fans would ramp up (before the water even gets warmer) and slow down as soon as the cpu loses load and cools to the temp of the water, almost instantly (before the water actually reaches its original temp).

Actually, what I did is re-wire the 3 fan's (or two for you. don't connect more than 3 on the CPU fan socket due to current overdraw) inputs from one of their own connector's and fused them, they now power off on one mobo fan channel, no bay fan controller necessary. Then I used Speedfan (program) to adjust temp/speed accordingly. It's pretty damn easy.

Actually depending on actual current drawn 4 fans is no problem if you have a good quality mobo like a gigabyte UD series

I ran 4 AFB1212Hs at full speed 24/7 for 1 week without any problem

I would use a coolant temperature sensor and a fan controller.When you switch to water most temp sensors become invalid. But the water temp becomes a constant. Also gives better control of fans.

Did you mean there isn't a benefit whether using pwm or non-pwm fans?

Thanks all for all the replies and ideas.

This is my first water cooling build and I ended up using the on-board fan headers to see what happens and learn a bit from the experience.

So far, the CPU temps are around 23C.

Was thinking of replacing the non-pwm fans that came with the Raystorm Rad with pwm fans.

im saying it doesnt really do any good using the motherboard cpu fan header to control the radiator fans.

cpu heats up and kicks the fan speed up. the water hasnt absorbed any heat yet. noise for no reason.
cpu cools down and radiator fans slow back down. the water is still at its hottest point but the fans are running slow and not removing the heat.

summary, the fans are not running at a higher speed when they need to be.

Question here if someone could help me.
I am thinking of making my first watercooling loop.
I was currently looking at this one
http://shop.xs-pc.com/xsp/XSPC-RayStorm-D5-AX360-WaterCooling-Kit_39371.html
I also have a Swiftech H220 that I am currently using and one of the good things about it is its upgradability into a custom loop. My case is a Carbide 540 air, so I have clearance for both.
Is there anyone who uses that kit and if so, how does it perform and would you recommend it. Also, if you feel that there is a product/kit that my money could be better spent elsewhere, please recommend. I need tips from vets. wink.gif
Thanks

if you have an h220 that works just fine with no problems, there is no need to buy the xspc kit. all you need to buy are radiators and the fans for them and your gpu blocks. well i guess youll need more fittings and tubing but thats a given just as more fans for more rads.

Ok, that sounds great.
1. I'm assuming the XSPC radiator is a fine choice?
2. Which fans are recommended?

it depends where you are. alphacool rads are the better value. i love them and so does everyone that uses them. i will push for anyone to buy them instead because i love them so much thumb.gif
fan-wise, gentle typhoon ap-15 if you have a fan controller and ap-14 if you dont. get them while you can. they have been discontinued and when they are gone, they are gone.
