on another note.. maybe stupid question, but what exactly is the difference with all the fan / PWM headers on our mother boards and the CPU fan header? i mean aren't hey all the same?

reason i ask is i have my predator 360 hooked up to the CPU header... but lets say i want to add another 360.. can i just hook it up to any fan header and it function the same at the same speeds.. or do i have to buy a splitter for the CPU header? hope that makes sense thumb.gifthumb.gif

I might try that, although I would be surprised if that is the problem. If they didn't tighten it down enough thats some pretty poor QC

anyhow yes you can. most motherboards like mine have PWM controls for profiles for chassis fan header. if you look in the bios you will see it.

you'd be surprised. before i installed my revised version i had to tighten all the screws for the block as they were all semi loose..

and thanks for that. so basically CPU is the same as all the PWM headers on my mother board. so technically i could disconnect my 360 from the CPU header and put it on any PWM connector and its the same thing. just control it threw the bios like i already do ?

if that's the case that makes me happy.

I would ensure it's a pwm header from what I understand pwm devices on voltage controlled headers tend to make high pitched noise and aren't as accurate with the curves...as stated before some devices can be harmed if they are powered via the voltage controlled port and they are pwm...some headers claim pwm but are actually vc...

So a quick web search shows that your motherboard only has two PWM plugs. In the photo the two marked with red circles

I have a x99-s and it looks by the picture here that the other fan headers are the same as mine so they would defiantly be pwm. You have to just go into the bios settings in the fan control and just change the fans from DC to PWM.

I want to build a new pc and i was looking for a case in wich i can fit a ek predator.I do want to know if with revision 1.1 are all the problems solved or not?i know EK build quality products and this shouldn't be an exception.My backup for this would have been probably the noctua that i have(NH-D15).
Thank you

ok only issue with the tight one circled in red (CPU_OPT) is that it runs @ full speed no matter what...

Ok ive seen in my bios where i can switch from pwn to dc and visa versa... so now im confused. can i or can i not use Any fan header to run my Predator 360 pump and fans. blushsmiley.gif

use the cpu fan one for pump and then use th cpu_opt one for fans they work tighter

For me I use the CPU fan header to run the pump and then I use 1 fan headers on te middle left of the board to run the fans, this way I can control them seperatly, however if you like you could use any of them as long as you go into the bios settings and change it from DC to PWM, CPU opt is just a clone of CPU fan header and so you won't have full control over the fans if you use the CPU opt.
