Now this is more like it!

Do you have your 35x pumps on Heatsinks with a fan by chance?

Install it and try it out, it's part of the AI Suite.

Um this will not work for me because i am actually cooling 3 GTX 580 Classifed Hydro coppers. Not CPU

Read my rig specs

In that case you can use the PWM feed from a 580 and set up a fan profile in Afterburner. I know you can get an adapter cable for the fan header on a 580 because I told you about this some months ago when you asked.

Edit: Forget that as I don't think you can access the fan header under the block. Assuming that the CPU is loaded at the same time as the cards you could use PWM through the CPU header with Fan Xpert either to control the pumps speed or set them to run at a constant slower speed.

I doubt they'd need to run at full speed with just 3 blocks, restrictive though they probably are. With the 7 blocks I have in my loop around 3400rpm is enough on my pumps and even if I run them at 1700 rpm it only makes a few degrees difference to loaded temps.

can you post some pictures of this please so i can see exactly how you have it set up?

or a video would be better.

thanks

But i only have 2 pumps. i have 3 GTX580's i dont want 2 plugged into just 2 580's

It seems reckless.

I have 2 pumps and use a PWM splitter cable to feed a single signal to the PWM header. As I said in my edit I don't think you'd be able to access the fan header on the 580's anyway.

It only seems reckless if you have no idea what you're doing.

exactly, so becuase i wont be able to access the fan header on the 580 than i cant use PWM. So i need other alternatives cause my pumps are going to run 100%.

You can use the CPU fan header as I mentioned previously either to increase pumps' speed when the CPU heats up or to set them at a constant speed.

Edit: to make it easy for you spend a few dollars on one of these PWM Fan Splitter Cable and one of these if needed PWM fan extension cable and try it out. Waste of a few dollars if it's not what you want but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

If you do decide you want to do it I can tell you how to do a simple tweak so that both pump speeds are reported.

Again CPU is not what im concerned with, its GPU

Your not making sense im sorry

its 580 fan header or nothing and since i can get to it with a water block. PWM is freaking out of the question.

You would be using the CPU PWM header to control the pump speed. The fact it's independent of the GPUs is irrelevant if you want to control the pump speed. I'm afraid I cannot make it even more simple than that.
