If I can get the pump off my mobo, then all the more better.
My mobo can only control 3 fans.
Opt 1 and Opt 2 can only be controlled in 10% steps, and from the BIOS only.
Chassis 1 and 2 are group controlled, meaning that if SpeedFan is set to 25%, both fans run at 25%.
The CPU fan is on its own channel.
If I can get away with this by using a molex to 3 pin adapter for the pump, then I can put a very screamy 40mm fan on my NB, control it by the CPU header, and have my 2 identical intake and exhaust fans gang controlled, and then just leave opt 1 and 2 alone - at 50%.
So is it okay to run this pump at full 12V all day?
