Thanks for all your help guys.

So, let me get this right.

Having the positive, negative and tach all on one 3-pin. The FC-9 will be able to control the pump speed with no problem?

Yep,

Exactly.

Though you do not need the tach wire connected to the three pin to plug onto the FC9, just the plus and minus power wires.

The FC9 just ignores the tach wire, since it doesn't have any built in display.

Will it hurt to have the tach wire in with the plus and minus power wires? If so, should I just cut out the tach wire all together?

Won't hurt a bit to have it there.

It's not like you were going to be able to make use of it anywhere else anyway. biggrin.gif

You could plug the tach to an available mobo fan header. That way you can see it with speedfan, and you can set an alarm to it. But speedfan will only see it, it won't be able to control it.

i thought there would be issues with monitoring the speeds when the pump was used with this controller, regardless of the tach termination unless the previously mentioned custom board was used, or did i misinterpret ?
fc-9 is installed, and seems to do the job wink.gif
though i'm not fond of bay gizmos, i'm very pleased with the results, atm.

did you ever get it reassembled? i have this pump, the first thing I did when i unboxed it was totally take it apart, it wasn't hard to put back together at all, just be careful not to touch any of the electrical components inside the housing area
