Sorry for the double post, I thought this was the best way to update my earlier information and provide a notification to the OP.

Actually a much easier way to do this if you don't want to mess around is to buy a ready made molex to fan splitter. Something like this will do the trick.

Of course if you want to alter the lengths to suit your setup them you need to do some soldering or some crimping.

There are many ways to do this, but again you might be able to buy a ready made cable to do it for you. I would need to know what wires your pump has coming out of it and what plugs are on the end to tell you more.

There are two main types of fan controller; internal and bay mounted. There is a lot of variation, from ones with simple knobs to turn the fans up and down all the way to something like an Aquero which can be controlled through software. I have a Heatmaster - kind of like the Aquero but with slightly less functionality.

Have a think about if and how you want to control your fans, if you are happy running them at 100% then don't bother with a fan controller, if you want to turn them down when surfing or during idle time then there are lots of options. Let me know what direction you want to go with this and I will try to give more details.

Thanks a lot!! that looks and sounds perfect for my needs!

Right now I'm still quite unsure about my needs, but from what you've told me I'm leaning towards a fan controller. I'll photoshop a picture tonight of the layout of all the fans and where they will be for you to give you an idea of what I've going for... I'm not quite sure whether I want an internal or bay mounted... but the one like you have sounds quite efficient, If I can get the fans running based on temps that would be perfect, so yeah right now the internal one is sounding quite good.

Also with the lengths I have a lot of the 3 pin extensions lying around from my old build, would those work fine?

I'm glad you are making the effort to get clean, I really wish you the best of luck with that. Having something to focus on and also some responsibility seems to help; I work as a climbing instructor on the side and I know a few people who got into climbing to help with life changes, from getting off drugs to getting past bad relationships.

Like I said I will fill in a bit more when I get home, having to Alt+Tab every time someone walks past at the moment. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.


I'm actually getting into rock climbing myself, I have a friend who has just finsihed his qualifications as an outdoor instructoor and hge specializes in rock climbing. Almost all of my old friends are into drugs, drinking and partying and thats about it, so I needed to find a new friend circle. What's funny is literally a week after deciding I needed to distance myself from all the people influencing me badly I had already found a really active, sober and clean friend circle, a few of them have the occasional drink or hit of a bong on a special occasion but they're a lot more focused on more productive things, mostly physical, which is great for me because I love sport, fitness and anything active.

One's a rapper and is currently doing a lot of recording, I might get involved and make some music with him.
And 3 of them are really into kung fu which is really cool. Kung fu, Qi Gong and Tai Chi have really helped to balance me out, I also have a lot more energy and focus and feel a lot more creative.
In the past 2-3 months me and my girlfriend have already started a small business and are working on a few more as we speak.

Kung fu is the big one though, as I'm not learning it from a school but from a private teacher who teaches a system that has been passed down through family lines and very close students for over 3000 years, it's an unheard of system that probably less than 100 people in the world today know, but is still very efficient. Because of this though we get taught more than just how to fight and prtect ourselves, we get taught a lot of the philosophy behind it and get taught the essence and meaning behind every movement and action we do, it's a very spiritual and eye opening practise.

I will say that drugs really did help me open up and If ound out a lot about myself, they did just as much good as they did bad (yin yang) but as with any form of medicine, if you abuse it then it will abuse and destroy you. Quite a few of my friends have gone to mental wards because of psychosis, I have a few that are 100% sure that they are the anti Christ (at one point I thought this too, but had enough sanity to tell myself I need to lay off the drugs) and a few that think they're the "chosen one" and the future leader of the illuminati...


Now that I'm off everything completely though I see all the negative things that the drugs were doing to me, especially Marijuana. It probably did the most damage to me out of anything I was taking, not because of the substance (it's a great medicine for those in need) but because of howeasy it is to abuse.


These are some of the bracelets and pendants we make and sell, they're all 100% natural gemstone and crystal bracelets.

Coolant - distilled water and a biocide like PTNuke or a silver kill coil is what is mostly recommended. Premixed coolants used to have a lot of issues with breaking down over time, mostly this has been solved but there are still lingering doubts.

Sorry for the double post but thought it would be easier to read and less cluttered up.
With the whole PTnuke thing, would it be alright to use colored tubing as I would really like the tubing to be UV Blue. Does the colored tubing have any downfalls?

Also would it be fine to use a dye bomb (one of the coloring kits) along side the PTnuke or would you recommend against it?

Thanks a lot in advance.

As far as I know there are no downfalls with coloured tubing, it is usually the easiest way to add some colour.

As for dyes, something like Mayhems dyes seem to be the best around at the moment. Be aware that all dyes will stain your tubing over time, and all dyes fade slightly. Not a problem as such, just need to add a few drops more if / when the colour goes. Most dyes usually play nice with silver kill coils or a pH neutral biocide like PTNuke pHn, again Mayhems make one too, however there have been some issues reported when used with excess copper sulphate based biocides (PTNuke Cu).

There is really no need, I help for the love of the hobby. If you find my posts helpful you can alway click on the "rep" button at the bottom (green thumb icon); this goes for any post you come across which is helpful or informative. If you really want to send me something I wouldn't say no though, shoot me a PM and we will talk.
