At the end of the day, people can tell you what information they have, and present opinions and life experiences. It remains up to the individual user to decide what they are willing to risk, and what they are not willing to risk. If you put a pump rated for 32W on a 30W controller, you will have to be ready for failure that will not be covered by the warranty agreement. Most likely, the controller is what will be damaged, as the electronics for that channel will over heat and burn. The pump may not be damaged at all. If everything works as it should, your CPU should shut down as the water, which is no longer circulating, overheats and allows the CPU to overheat. The same goes for your graphics card and anything else that is on the loop. The odds are probably quite small that the water, as it overheats, won't burst the tubing or split a joint and flood all components in your rig with water, shorting them out. And, lets not forget that the PSU is probably in the bottom of the case where the water will end up.
So, go ahead. Use the wrongly rated components. The odds are you will get away with it or with little damage. If you are very unlucky, then more can happen, but, hey, its not as if you are losing your house at a crap table, right?

Lol ok thanks for the response, I'll shoot an email to koolance, see what they say.

As you would have seen if you reviewed the thread I linked you to, that has already been done. I shall, to make life easier for you, paste in the response I got from Koolance so you don't have to go to the trouble of actually reading the thread.

"Hello,

We have recently updated our controllers list on the PMP-500 page due to amperage limitations.

Our recommended CTR-SPD1224 controller has a jumper to change between max 12V or 24V output. It will work with PMP-500 as long as the jumper stays at "12V" (the CTR-SPD1224 user manual on our website illustrates this setting). The pump should not be run with the jumper set for 24V max.


Thank you for your inquiry,
Info

Koolance, Inc."


As you can see, they definitely recommend a controller with the proper amperage (or watts) and changed the info they had on the product page to reflect what I brought to their attention.

Yeah, but what about fan controllers that use PWM vs. controllers that lower voltage, any preference?

Makes no difference. PWM is another means of controlling the speed, it doesn't reduce the amount of power required to run the fans at a specific speed. As well, PWM controllers only work for components that support PWM, and the PMP 500 does not.

I reviewed the thread you sent me trust me, but what you reposted here doesn't let me know if I can run a 32w on an 30w fan controller, I know you may think they indirectly said this but they didn't truly say this. Not trying to be ignorant, I just really want this to work! How much amperage does the pump require, I couldn't find what the specs listed for the fan controller.

Have you thought about just getting a pump with a variable speed control built in, instead of insisting on doing something like you are trying to do with your current pump? It would give you everything you want, without running the risk of ruining your components....

But the PMP-500 is sexy! And the head pressure is hell of good.

No reputable company is going to tell you that running something that is contrary to their published specifications is OK. Just not going to happen. If they did, they would then have to honor their warranty if something went wrong.

By the way, Amps X Voltage = Watts.

Yeah I was thinking that, oh well worth a shot. Thanks for the formula, didn't know that it's very helpful. Anyways it's a go because Hanoverfist has the same fan controller and runs the same pump off of it. He also works for a power company so he knows his fair share of knowledge.

I've been an electrician for half of my life, and I still wouldn't do it personally. Just goes to show just because someone has experience in a field, it doesn't mean we will all make the same decisions or have the same ideas of what is safe and what isn't. Either way, good luck and I hope it all works out for you. thumb.gif
