You may find that the noise levels at 100% are OK for you.

it's just that one review i posted above the user said it spins at 60% when only connect to the molex. oh well... i'll test it out. worst case sencario, i'll connect it to the 3pin on the mobo and figure it out from there.

thanks for the help guys.

Yes, you're right, Martin does say it runs at 60% if not connected. In that case connect the PWM and set it to run at full speed if you want. You'll probably find though that there's little or no difference in temperatures.

HA!. i just looked at my order again, since i ordered it from SidewinderComputers, they only sell the Vario version, B version, or the Vario with Tachmeter. they don't see the PWM version. so looks like i actually ordered the Vario version with the Potentiometer dial on the back. lol. all is good. smile.gif

i also tossed in a 8 way pwm fan controller so i can controll all my radiator fans with pwm while running my pump at full speed. smile.gif

thanks guys.

btw, do you guys know if the 8 way fan splitter http://www.swiftech.com/8-WayPWMsplitter.aspx will work with 3pin fans?

all my radiator fans are unfrotunately 3pins. but i plan on plugging the splitter into my 4pin cpu header, will it still be able to control the fans?

No, the control is done by PWM not voltage so it will only control 4 pin PWM fans.

oh well.... i'll keep the splitter anyway, and invest in some new fans in the future. it just sucks that there aren't any decent static pressure fans that are LED. the best static pressure fans are all none LED that i know of.

think i might have to go with Noctua NF-F12 and just add some custome LED lighting to the case.

i thought i'd chime back in after receiving and installed the MCP655 aka D5. MY GOD!!! so much more quiet than before. it's like night and day in noise difference. it's amazing how i put up with the D4 for all these years, one year i even had it in my bedroom.

anyway, i did some more research on loop restriction for my setup, my radiators GT Stealth 360 + 120 have one of the highest restrictions, but also one of the highest FPI count. i worked out that my current loop is roughly putting out 3.5psi, and subtract that by D5's 4.6psi rating at 1gpm, according to Martin. i should have well over 1gpm of flow rate in my current loop, or probably 1.5gpm.

i got so much kick out of the quiet D5 that i ordered 7 NB eLoop B12-P fans. i am currently running some real sub par combination of Aeroflow turbine and Antec Tricool. my goal is to have some temperature improvement and quieter operation with the new eLoop fans.

thanks for all the help again. smile.gif
