I'm just curious, why is it a bad idea to run all of the fans off the VGA header?

Because max watts/amps on the header. Without knowing the specs on the header, you risk frying something.

Ah, gotcha, thanks for the elaboration. Ok I will simply use the existing fan headers for the radiator fans. I was hoping to run the splitter off of the VGA header as then I could control all three fans via Precision X's fan control. I suppose now I will just have to keep the fans at 60% RPM or so constant, any higher and the noise gets a bit obnoxious. Hopefully the temps are ok at that RPM, will have to wait and see.

You won't have to worry about the noise from the 90mm stock fan, you cant hear it unless it's right next to your ear.

Yeah I wasn't really worried about the noise from the G10 fan, its the 4 120mm fans in push-pull that I am slightly worried about. In order to have decent temps I imagine they will need to run at no less than 60% RPM constant. At anything above 50% RPM there is definitely a good bit of fan-drone going on so I'd like to keep the RPM about there, definitely no higher than 60%. I have to run the front bottom fans at 75% right now to feed and evacuate the EVGA ACX coolers fresh air and hot air respectively; the din of fan-drone is only bearable with my Astro A50's on and even then, during moments of inaction I can hear them.

Part of my motivation to go the AIO route is not only to drop the temps, but to also cut down on the noise. Hopefully running both the included 120mm fan on the H55's and the existing Noiseblocker B-12P's in push-pull will provide adequate airflow across the radiators at 50% RPM while still keeping peak load temps under 55C....

That should be easily achieved given your specs and case fans. Just be sure to run the H55 pumps at or near 100%. To save fan headers, you could even plug them in through molex to have them run at 100% constantly.

Thanks for the suggestion friend, I didn't know that you could burn out your fan headers. smile.gif

I burned out my Corsair 600T's Fan header once... I put 3 fans with high amp req on it.... >.< had to learn the hard way.
post #1939 of 6392
The case had a fan header? I thought those were only on the motherboard. Thanks for saving me the headache.

D'o! *facepalm* ... I meant Fan controller... but it's the same concept. smile.gif
