Plus, I see only a cpu_fan header and one other pwm fan header on my mobo (plus another 3 pin header, i think for a ram fan). But hopefully if i use the lowest 3.5/5.25 bay i can still fit a fan above it
I run mine from the hardware monitor in my bios and I was mistaken about the PWN numbers I actually have only 1 PWM header and it's for my CPU fan but I can change the output percentage for each header as well as setting a temp target and minimum fan speed for my CPU fan.

Well, the only pwm on my mobo is cpu. The rest can be set by bios, but only 50/75/100%. Once set in bios, no changing allowed. My 5.25" fan controller allows me to set 3 fans on low/med/hi. Simple, benching/gaming, lean over & set to high. Internet/movies, set to low. Sound at high can be obtrusive, 1800rpm 120mm fans can give a bit of a roar. Win/Win.
The only fans I left alone were the Std front & back fans, they are really quiet!
I must post a pic of my system once it is done & join the club....
Interesting place this.

hey I'm having a serious issue. I installed the H60 and the XFX 6850 GPU. When I try to boot up after about 10 seconds the computer shuts down. Once or twice I was able to get into the BIOS before it shut down and the CPU temp was only about 30C. Any ideas for what I should try? Thanks!

Edit: The H60 fan is running and I tried putting in my old graphics card but am having the same issue. It looks like it approximately shuts down in about 30 seconds even if I'm in the BIOS options. Help

Take everything out you can. get down to as few sticks of ram as possible, unplug all the drives, and remove all cards except video. then, if it boots, start adding things back one at a time. if it still doesn't boot, then it's got to be the board, chip or power supply.

Update, I took off the H60 and put in the stock cooler. The computer now seems to start up fine, so I guess its the CPU cooler. Not really sure why the H60 is not cooling properly. Not sure what to do at this point. Thoughts?

did you have the h60 plugged into the cpu header on the mobo, or into a power lead from the power supply? some boards need to see fan speed right away. you can also go into the bios and turn off cpu fan speed monitoring, and see if that helps with the h60 plugged into the mobo header.

I did have it plugged into the mobo. I turned off the fan restrictions in the bios now. Will have to try to put the H60 back on and see if it will power up. I did apply new thermal paste on both the CPU and H60. Wonder if there just wasn't enough on the H60? Hmm...

Edit... Wonder if I should turn the fan around and see if the temperatures get better.

i serious doubt that thermal paste had anything to do with it. some motherboard bioses (gigabyte i know for a fact), need to see cpu cooler fan speed within X amount of time, or it will power down thinking the cpu fan is dead and is trying to save the cpu. i previously had such an issue with my Vantage, so i run the Vantage off a power supply lead, and the one of the radiator cooling fans off the mobo header. i'm not sure of the bios setting (hard to type in the forum while looking at the bios), but it has something to do with cpu fan failure or cpu fan monitoring, not just the mobo header pwm.

Well the fan that comes with the H60 is connected to the CPU fan on the mobo. Then the also Corsair heatsink is connected to another sys fan 1 on the mobo. I just tried again and it turned just like before. I'm not really sure why this would happen because I reapplied the thermal paste before putting on the H60 again. Should I not being any on the H60 itself and only on the CPU or should I try putting more on the H60? I'm not really sure what else I can be trying since the stock heatsink is working fine. Any ideas?

Here is a picture of the set up now, not sure if anything is just flat out wrong...

you should definitely only be putting thermal paste on 1 or the other, and only a drop about the size of a pea, to much thermal paste will act as a thermal blanket instead of a thermal transmitter. try plugging a fan with at least 3 wires on it (it will be rpm sensing or pwn) into the cpu fan header, and the power to the pump into any other header and see what happens. as i stated earlier, i think the mobo is powering down because it's not seeing rpms from the cpu fan header.
