Tried it on both types of headers, no difference.

I think the only way to do it is plug all 5 fans into the basic fan splitter that came with my case. If I use the noise adapter they are a little slow, but at full speed I think they are too loud, so a little slow isn’t too bad since it is quiet.

I know my board has 2 PWM controlled headers for sure. The CPU fan header, and the optional CPU fan header. The rest I believe are voltage controlled headers. I think I will run the pump off of the CPU fan header, and the splitter off of the opt CPU fan header.

I will be trying this Tuesday when I get all the fans and stuff I ordered:
Quote:
I had already bought the Sunbeam PL-RS-6 Rheosmart 6 Fan Controller before I bought the H220 and was thinking about ways to use it.

I connect the pump on the H220 to the splitter and the PWM Helix fans on the splitter as normal. Then connect the PWM signal cable from the Rheosmart to the splitter and the 3pin case fans to the Rheosmart controller.

I should be able to have the best of both worlds. The pump and the helix fans would be connected to the splitter as normal and the fan controller would be getting a PWM signal from the CPU-Fan connector (through the splitter) enabling me to control the fans by using the BIOS along with the pump and helix fans or by using the manual control knobs on the fan controller.

So in essence it would enable me to connect 3pin fans to the H220 splitter (although not directly) without having them run full speed all the time and allow me to run them in auto or manually control them if I choose to do so.

Although it doesn't help for people who are running all PWM fans.

At 1100RPM, they are plenty fine. I run mine at 800RPM. Having that much rad space only makes sense if you are going to use quiet fan speeds. The difference between 1100RPM and 1500RPM isnt noticable, maybe 1-2C at most. Running at 800RPM only increased my temps by 2C over 1100RPM.

Thanks for the feedback.
With the fans that slow they have to be very quiet, do you hear the H220 pump the most then?

Why don't you use the Swiftech splitter with the pump in Channel 1 and just set the minimum speed to 50-60%? The pump will still be plenty quiet and it should get the F12 speeds up to a reasonable rpm. The pump can't even run at 35% of max. Minimum pump speed is 40% of max.

I'm curious when the 280mm AIO kit comes out, how does the naming work with that?

Just not sure if running the pump on a voltage regulated header is a good idea or not.
Maybe Swiftech could chime in on this one!

Just to clarify, Swiftech reps have said NOT to run the pump on voltage control. The pump is designed to run at 12v only, and going up or down is a bad thing. I repeat, do not mess with the pumps voltage!

Personally, if I was buying 30-60 bucks in Noctua fans I would probably pony up for a fan controller that does proper PWM control(a lot don't), but that's just me. I can understand people's frustration if it isn't working like they thought it would.

It will probably be named the h240. The first number dictates the number of fan's being used, so 120/220/320 are X number of 120 fans, the second number is the size of the fan, so either a 2 or a 4.

I run my pump at 20%.


That puts the pump at 1500rpm which is very slightly more noticeable then four nf-f12s at 800rpm. Not sure if its louder, but the tone is more noticeable then the noctuas.

I'm a little confused. What happens if you plug the splitter into the CPU fan header with all the fans plugged into it, and the splitter powered by molex?
