Do ddc pumps work with PWM from fan controllers like t-balancer ? Not sure if they can, I know they work with analog output but requires better cooling of fan control unit like BigNG and MiniNG and will watercool those.
Lol no they don't melt it, not unless you put it on something with a really low melting point. The pumps are actually supplied with somethign to mount them on, although that material doesn't absorb vibrations too well.
You can control pumps with a fan controller, but only a few allow enough watts per channel - you need about 30W per channel, and each pump must be on its own channel. You can work it out by using some simply physics - a DDC draws 2 amps, you are supplying it with 12v so using the formula Power = Current x Voltage, we come up with 24 watts. I would give headroom of up to 30W. In my opinion the T-Balancers are a waste of money, and i don't see why you even need to drop your pump speed - they don't make much noise at all once inside the case with the side panels on.
Also do you really mean you are going to watercool the T-Balancers?!
