Can I cut the RPM cable of a D5 pump?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello

I bought a spare D5 pump recently and it came with a RPM fan cable like this:

The problem is I can't squeeze 3 sleeved cables through one of the holes in the Bitspower D5 mod kit and don't really need an RPM signal. If I snip the cable off completely, will it affect the pump at all? I just want to double check before I do it.

Thanks.

It won't affect anything, it just reports the RPM so you can monitor it.

my D5 will run @100% w/o a pmw signal.

Edit again: the PWM cable should be on the 4th pin, not the third like his picture. Should also be two lines for PWM pumps, one for RPM and one for PWM. But I guess that could vary by manufacturer.

Bottom line, test it unplugged before you cut it, I guess.

You could cut it, and you would have no speed reporting. Or, you could simply sleeve only to the opening on the mod kit, or drill out the hole in the mod kit slightly larger (which is what I would do if it were mine).

I thought I made sure I ordered a D5 Vario with just molex cables but mine came with a fan cable too. It has the 1-5 settings on the base so not the PWM version.

I think I'll cut it off completely. I don't trust my drilling skills. I can just about squeeze two sleeved cables through one hole and it'll look tidier.

Thanks! - rep to you (all)
