I just left the fans and pumps on 24/7, but you could easily rig up a switch to go through the wall (or a power sensing circuit so that when your computer turns on, your fans come on from the other power supply). That way, all the heat and noise was away from me in another room.
Also, I edited my previous post to give you a link to a 9 way fan splitter.

Oh my ... That splitter is JUST the last piece of the puzzle! smile.gif

Thanks a bunch!

Yah, the MORA is going to be a good distance away (Using Quick-Disconnects so I can move the PC around, swap to benchtest or attach a friends system ..) - But I am using the 35X2 pump, so should have a good amount of power.

Love your setup by the way - For me that have always been the best way of doing things. Move the "noise" and heat AWAY from your immediate area to somewhere more suited (In my case, I might route the tubing downwards and have the MORA sitting in the "cold" basement.

I've done that before, or rather I should say, I TRIED that before. But when you do a 4-5m drop and rise from your basement to the first floor of a house, most standard pumps used in computer water cooling just do not have the head pressure to overcome the altitude difference AND the long run of tubing. So if you want to that, you will need to really look at other pumps with a little more "umph". That's why I stayed at the same level, just ran horizontal.

Special thanks to latelesley and 47 Knucklehead, happy to report that I just finished assembling the MO-RA3.

Using the 9-way-splitter and an external PSU, everything runs fine.

I got a 4PIN-3PIN that comes with 5V 7V and 12V - This goes between the external PSU and the 9-way-splitter (Which to my suprise was EASY to hide behind the MO-RA3 cover!).

The 5V is useless (Fans just hum abit and dont start, but that figures.) - 7V is completely silent and 12V is just this deep hum that really blends into the ambient.

Thank you to all of you!
