CPU_FAN and keeping cables tidy

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm setting up my PC now after taking everything out and so far i'm pretty happy with the cables they're all out of the way and everything is neat and tidy, but i've put the pump in and it has a long blue cable which I think i'm supposed to put into the CPU_FAN slot on the motherboard (it's a swiftech mcp3500(SP?)) but i'd rather not because it'll go right across the case and cause a mess ;-; is there any other way to 'ground' that CPU_FAN slot and make it think there's a fan plugged in? and will the pump be ok if I don't plug the cable in anywhere?

what if I cut a connector from an old fan and plug it into the motherboad slot, will that work? or does it need a proper circuit with the wires for it to work?

thanks

You dont need it to be plugged in to work, If you have a fan controller you can plug it in there if not to keep everything neat i wouldnt bother use it.

The Fan controller end of the plug is opctional

ok great, but won't the motherboard complain if there's nothing plugged into the CPU fan plug?

also do radiators have to have the water flow input and output in specific ports or can it be any?
