I suppose you could...but it would probably be more prudent to just plug the pump into the motherboard. Besides, do you really need to change the pump speed that frequently?

As for the cathodes: sure, I guess. But it will be one less fan that you can control...

I dont really think the cathode will take undervolting very well, but if it works please post back, i was just wondering the same thing.
post #5 of 5
run the pump off the psu, not the motherboard. it wont be able to power it up, newer mobo's can power 1amp. i know the d5 uses more.

as for cathodes. no u cant use a fan controller...cathodes need an inverter to power them. unless u go -- fan controller 3 pin > inverter>cathodes, but i dont know why u would want cathodes on a fan controller, only use i can think of is to turn them on and off. dimming wont work
