The splitter is one of the best aspects of this setup! Running four fans AND the pump off of one PWM header without having to wrestle with several adapters? YES, PLEASE!

I honestly can't think of a good reason not to use it...

Given that information I really don't see why the motherboard couldn't handle powering this pump.

Having read all of this (but not being an owner) and also having kept track of the technical issues, I get that the engineers say that it's possible - and far be it for me or anyone else on the Interblag to say they're wrong - but if there's a consistent connection between motherboard header installs and deaths, then maybe it's possible to plug in there with no issues, but just something that everyone should avoid. guiltysmiley.gif

I mean, maybe there's a deeper cause, maybe the users cause some of this, maybe the dirty first-runs were the big deal....

I know a lot of the newer ones have no problems, and that's very good! thumbsupsmiley.png

Thanks - T

Exactly! Same here. thumb.gif

I'm glad to hear this, being able to regulate fan and pump speeds separately is something I couldn't live without. I use the splitter plugged into a system fan header to regulate the fans, and have the pump plugged directly into the CPU fan header.

I will say this though, my pump runs as low as 1060 RPM, can this lead to mechanical failure? If so I can increase the minimum PWM signal in Speedfan until it normalizes at 1200 RPM.

Fans and pump independently speed controlled, I've seen no temperature benefit from running the pump at over 50%.

Six volts?

Final installation pic:



System is running like a dream. Unless I happen to receive a couple grand to blow on computer stuff so I can go with Titans under water, I'm done with this build. Now it's time to enjoy it biggrin.gif I am exceptionally happy with my H220 in terms of performance, functionality, quality ans service smile.gif

i think he meant 6w?

Is there a manufacturing date for the new (supposedly trouble free) batch of h220's?

looking at your motherboard manual, by default your CPU fan header is "Automatic" (vs. PWM, or Voltage). Try explicitly setting it to PWM and see if that resolves your minimum RPM issues. If you set speedfan to 0% does your pump shut off?

in my experience Automatic is really Voltage since it "covers" both and Gigabyte says it's compatible with both voltage and pwm fans. rolleyes.gif

CPU Fan Control Mode
Auto Lets the BIOS automatically detect the type of CPU fan installed and sets the optimal CPU
fan control mode. (Default)

Voltage Sets Voltage mode for a 3-pin CPU fan.

PWM Sets PWM mode for a 4-pin CPU fan.

Note: The Voltage mode can be set for a 3-pin CPU fan or a 4-pin CPU fan. However, for a 4-pin CPU
fan that is not designed following Intel PWMfan specifications, selecting PWMmodemay not effectively
reduce the fan speed.

i've had problems with gigabyte BIOS in my 790x motherboard where it wouldnt spin up my xigmatek pwm fan right at POST and it would cause the fan failure beep until it spun up by itself. it was probably being voltage controlled.

Yeah, I've done the UEFI changes, the CPU header can be switched between PWM and Voltage, the other controllable headers are PWM only, and one is always at 12v. It's all currently being controlled through Speedfan, I reconfigured it so that the pump bottoms out at 1200 RPM.
