Most motherboards the CPU header and the CPU_OPT header work from one bios setting so if you have it set say at 35% at 45C both the fans and pump with run at 35% if you only connect the one cable to the CPU header and leave both fan and pump attached to the 360 or 240 or if you have the pump on the CPU_OPT header, both should work the same way. The only reason I have the fan cable to the CPU header and the pump cable separate to the CPU_OPT header is so i can independently see the RPM of the fans and the pump. Like I said I believe they'll still run at the same speed percentages no matter if you have the pump separate on CPU and CPU_OPT or have it attached to the 360.

The other option is to have the pump attached to a chassis fan header set on PWM instead of the CPU_OPT and then you can adjust the pump's RPM %'s separate from the fan cable on the CPU header. biggrin.gif

Unfortunate type I fixed, pimps instead of pump's. drool.gif

well... i adjusted the fan curve on bios, and right now, the fans are running at 1200-1300 rpm... dunno if the pump is running at an equivalent speed... im confortable with the noise so, no worries there... i just kinda freak out when my cpu goes over 62ºC (yeah i know, it is a stupid thing to freak out on such a low temp)...

Get the Windows tool from your mainboard manufacturer and set a fan curve. Most of the time BIOS fan curves are way simpler.
The pump will work in a different rpm range, but also has the same %-speed signal. 1200rpm sounds close to 50% and should be more than 2000rpmfor the pump.

well, i was getting a low of 750-800 rpm on the CPU_FAN header (that is where i connected the predator's cable)
now im getting a 1200-1300 rpm...

(im kinda noob on this thin of pumps and stuff)

"was"...
Like with the old cooler/fan or after first time setting this up?
post #5286 of 7201
So my Predator 240 makes a swoosh or splashing noise a couple times when my system is on. I'm pretty sure there's air in the system/not enough fluid. What is the recommended coolant for topping up the system? Can I just add distilled water to top it up?

was = predator on cpu_fan on auto
now = predator on cpu_fan with custom curve

Yes that will work just fine.

So, everything works fine! biggrin.gif

So my Predator 240 only makes the waterfall noise when it's running higher/faster...normally it doesn't make that noise. Would you say I need to top it up? Or would it be related to the speed? When I have it connected to my mobo for CPU_PUMP, it's like a constant waterfall. Right now it's connected to the CPU_FAN.
