Very important questions. I own an ASus P5Q Deluxe and P5Q Pro motherboards and my fan settings in the bios are set to quiet. Will the pump get enough power from the mobo?
Pretty sure it won't. Just hook it up to a 4 pin molex and forget about possible pump issues.

Ladies and gents, I'd like to pose an idea and see what your thoughts are. Given that most people don't want to increase their rad surface area or add a higher flow rate pump and res, the only other viable alternative I can see for improving the cooling of the H50 is to increase the airflow over the rad. Doing so with with a 38mm fan is just too noisey an option for me. So what if I were to add a 120mm to 140mm fan adapter at each end? theoretically a 140mm fan could pump in more air without increasing the noise. Moreover the compression to 120mm should further speed up the air (venturi effect) providing an even better cooling solution. Thoughts?

Ok, I get it. Then I am going to have a got a "splitter" or a 4pin into 4 pin molex cable in order to connect the pump to the 4 pin molex?. )-:

3 pin to molex (at least mine is), 4 pin will also work if that's what you have. You probably have one kicking around if you have bought a fan in the past.

Hmmm... Im liking the way you think... explain more pls. Pics or links on the gear you would use so i can get my head around the concept

I am an idiot... I forgot the pump is only 3pin not 4 pin... I am at work right now, multitasking. Thanks for you help. Pics coming up this weekend.

I'm think of an adapter like the one attached. You can see by the other pic how it would mount. For the Fan, I'm think the noise blocker 1,700 rpm would be great. It comes with a gasket and puts out 90 CFM at 1,781 mm H2O with very little noise.

Im not much into the physics of fans and airflow but what you say rings true. Your second attachment doesn't expand, btw.

Im thinking you should start up a thread here, run some trials and post the results on your thread. Similar to CONTAGION's shroud thread. Nothing beats getting published

That way we dont lose your work and its there for future readers to see.

It sounded like an interesting idea, so I grabbed an adapter and a 140mm fan and did a little investigating. There is very little room on the pipe side of the rad for a bigger fan. If you space the fan out far enough, a little pipe bending might let it fit. Whether you will be able to use a 140mm fan (on either side) will be very dependent on your particular installation. For me, I would have to make major changes to accommodate them. On the other hand I ordered those Noiseblockers this past weekend and they are on their way (damn they're expensive!). Maybe I'll have a chance to play a little in a week or two.

This makes perfect sense, and yes, the venturi effect, like that used in carborateurs, should accelerate the air flowing in towards, or away from, the radiator, depending of course on whether you set it up as exhaust or intake. But either way, assuming the rigging will accommodate the fan adapter and your case has room for the fan itself, you can avail yourself of those higher cfms/mm H2O rates from the bigger fans. I'm definitely interested in seeing the results of some tests with this! Good idea.
