Yup, I wouldn't trust the pump on a MB header and I just ran out of headers so that's what I did with the 90mm fan too.

I removed my ODD. I don't plan on installing a drive.

I have the x40 pump on my front motherboard header and the AF140/AF140 LED fans on the rad are connected to the fan connections on the x40. The fan on my G10 bracket is connected directly to the 290x. The SP120s Performance Edition and the rear NB 80mm fans are connected to my H100i fan headers.

I'd like to push my clocks higher than that but I fear my overclocked RAM (2400 Mhz) is causing instability when I push the CPU much higher.

Will advise over here when I have them fitted.

Edit: I just read some reviews on the SP120 quiet edition fans and I think I am just going to go for those now biggrin.gif

Both of my AF120's and my 1 AF140 are Quiet Edition fans. I don't hear the 3 fans at all, but I do hear my damn 770. LOL! The 770 is the loudest thing in my system when it is quiet in the room. At some point I'll water cool my video card. I wanted the 780, but will wait to see what happens with the 800 series cards. How universal are water blocks for GPU's? I would want one that does cover the entire PCB.

1)The H100i has how many fan connections on the pump?
2)You using Corsair Link to control the fans?
3)Or fan expert 2?
4)The G10 fan can hook up to the video card fan header?

Sorry for all the questions biggrin.gif

1) The H100i has four (4) fan connections on the pump. It was designed with push/pull configurations in mind but can be used to control any PWM fans.
2) He can answer for himself but corsair link can only control the fans connected directly to the pump. And yes I use it to control my fans.
3)...
4) No, the G10 fan cannot connect directly to the video card. It may work but would take some modifications first and I'm always a little leery about modding a $700 card.

Full cover water blocks are NOT universal at all. Typically they are only designed for reference cards as well and will not work on cards that come with aftermarket coolers (usually the card architecture is modified by the OEM to better accommodate their custom coolers). Check with the water block manufacturer to see if your specific card is supported. Just because it says it works with a 770 does not mean it will work with YOUR 770.

Perhaps the 290x has a standard fan header...my 780ti does not unfortunately.

1)The H100i can control 4 fans. Since I only use 2 on the H100i rad, I used the the other 2 on my rear exhaust.
2 and 3)Yes I'm using the Corsair Link software to control all the fans connected to the H100i.
4)I use this GELID adaptor http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13314/cab-454/Gelid_Solutions_PWM_Fan_Adapter_for_VGA_Cards_CA-PWM-02.html
Using that will allow any PWM fan to be controlled in the same manner as the fan on a stock cooler. NOTE: The video card can only control the speed of PWM fans. All 3-pin fans will run at full speed.

In my 900D build, the radiator fans on my Xfired 290Xs w/G10s and Corsair H105s are run off the video cards. That allows me to run them with custom fan profiles using Afterburner.

Thanks Rebel for the heads up on the water block.
