W.P.
the pumps on a lot of all in ones fail because they aren't quality pumps to begin with...and their quality control isn't all that great...these predator aios and the x variants from swiftech are both made with quality parts and good quality control...you can compare the h110gtx to these for thermals (even though corsair still loses)but in quality and longevity there is no comparison...there would be zero problem running pump and fan speeds independently from either of these units given that you connect then to proper headers and controllers respectively...thinking that you are messing up by trying to do so is a silly notion...sure if you connect pwm controlled device to a voltage controlled header that can cause problems and damage to it...but that's why thus forum is here so people and the reps here can steer them in the right direction if they wish to do this...you say learn the tech...I think that's a great idea

Very good and close! The whole point is to have independent control of the fans and the pump as they are two completely different systems, regardless of how they appear at first look. That is why EKWB and Swiftech, (a messy implementation by Swiftech though), use a SATA power connector for the pump only. A good pump doesn't need speed control, but the fans do for temp. and FAN noise. A good pump will be silent. Acoustics vs hydraulics. They are very different things.That is why EKWB and Swiftech, (a messy implementation by Swiftech though), are doing it this way vs crap like Corsair and others puts out. Keep reading and learning gals and guys. Best of fortune to everyone.
Sincerely,

I have same case was worried the whole rad/fan assembly would hit the memory area on my asus 170 deluxe board

Thank you. I appreciate it. It's a corsair 760T. The rad just barely fit

O.K. last call. "Ya don't hafta go home but ya can't stay here"smile.gif. The site won't let me post snips from Abby Fine Reader Corp. Edition or Nitro 3 .pdf readers. Read EKWBs install guide and diagrams for the power connectors for the fan header and the power supply connecting the power cables of the system for the Predator cooling systems.. It will manifest itself there. Nite ya'all:p

So the 360 will fit in the front of the h440 according to a post a few pages back but what about the top?
post #1738 of 7097
Uhhhh, I said either, and/or both the EKWB 360 and/or the 240 will both fit in the Fractal Design R5 Define. Someone else said it will fit, just barely, in the h440:thinking:

It fits but, the pump must be on top, and u need to remove the USB 3 from IO or it won't fit.
And because u need to fill up the loop before fitting it in, it is a pain. Unless u are just doing CPU. But fitting the GPU and though the back is super hard.
