Where to place pump and fan power connection?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
MOBO Asus 990FX PRO REV 2.0 Cooler: CM Nepton 140xl I have a push pull at the top of my case, the bottom fan is connected to cpu1, the top fan is connected to a molex splitter. Lastly the pump is connected to chassis 3. Is this ok? Should I put the pump in CPU OPT, which is the 2nd cpu PWM connection?, or put the pump on its own molex PWM

If the pump and fans are not PWM, then there is no worries about what motherboard headers you use. From the specs on the CM Nepton 140XL, the pump and fans appear not to be PWM. As long as you are providing sufficient power to the pump and the fans, then any of the headers on the motherboard will be fine.

i figured that the pump on the chassis will not run full blast all the time, thus preserving its life time.

Thanks, Simple Question Solved.

is the pump connector 3 or 4 pin? i would put it either on a molex adapter or the pwr fan header.
use the splitter cable to hook both fans up to the cpu pwm header. thats why they gave you that splitter.
