Hi there,

I have another dilemma here biggrin.gif

I have a mobo ASRock Z87 Extreme4 and AFAIK it's headers can handle:
CPU1/2 - 12W each
CHA1/2/3 - 6W each
CPU1 and CHA1 are 4pin[PWM] and rest i 3pin.

For loop I'm going to use
EK Supreme LTX
Alphacool Nexxxos UT60
Aquacomputer block for GTX680 lightning
[that's the important parts]

And now - I have 3 FD R2 140mm fans [3pin] and one BeQuiet Silent Wings 140mm [that's 3pin too].
I wanted to use EK DCP-2.2 pump because I can plug it into mobo directly [and it's cheap biggrin.gif]
But here's the problem - I might not have enough power from mobo headers to run both pump and all fans.

So... should I go for this pump and buy new fans (I can go for either Noctua, Akasa Viper or BeQuiet PWM fans) or keep the fans and get Swiftech MCP35X PWM?
Getting both is not an option [budget restraints] and I live in funny country called Poland where fan selection isn't that broad : P
