I've fiddled with the FanXpert but have given up on that, as it looks like most other people have too. What do you use for the voltage/power control? Do you just use one of the channels on a fan controller? My previous I just let run direct 12v from the PSU with molex.
I appreciate the help. Got my Mountain Mod box today:)
Uh, looking at this, seems like I can but gotta watch out for the wattage! 36 Watts if I hook the pumps on one. Hmmm. Looks like I need to have a separate kind of "dimmer" switch....
>>edit doing more reading on this site... looks like I hook the pumps to the MB and use the PWM. Like I said in the beginning of the thread, I don't know anything about pumps...
>>2nd Edit - well, that's what the Swiftech instrux say... however, each pump pulls up to 18w, and the MB connector on my board says Max 12w per connector....grrrrrr....
>>>3rd Edit - Ok, read, read, read... I get it now. The pumps have Molex for power and the pwm connection for the board is just for speed control. So, I guess that means that I can hook that to a pwm fan controller as it is not juicing the pumps....hmmmm
I learned a lot today:)Edited by djames - 8/24/12 at 10:27pm
