MCP35x Pump Connection?

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
It has a large 4 pin connector and a small 4 pin connector (both of them actually only have 2 wires, though). Where do I attach the small 4 pin connector to?

I have the large ones attached to my PSU 4 pin connector?

4pin molex, which is large 4 pin is for power,, 4pin fan connector(small one with 2 wires) is to connect to fan header on your mobo.

now connect that one to 4 pin CPU fan header on your mobo, it should say CPU fan on those fan headers(imprinted on mobo by the header)

Black and yellow wire should plug into the PSU, blue and green should be plugged into a fan controller if you want to view or control the speed of the pump.

I don't have a fan controller that supports a 4 pin fan connector. Could I switch it out for a 3 pin or would it not work anymore?

You should be able to plug the 4-pin into a three pin fan controller and still have it work.

MCP35X = PWM, so as i already said, connect that to 4 pin cpu fan header.

your bios will control the pump speed or you can with speed fan.

trust me, I have the same pump

Thanks guys.

Well mekaw I have a fan controller that I COULD use for it. I do have TWO pumps though, and they would both be controller by the same channel (ie: both pumps will always run at same speed).

I might plug them into the motherboard for the PWM in the BIOS. I understand that I SHOULD be able to swap out the pin ending and still have it work. Could I STILL swap out the pin connector and have the PWM work on the motherboard?

I tried using fan controller doesnt work. If i recall, it doesnt have all the "correct" wires for controller to control voltage or speed. don't quote me on it though.

Yeah, I've decided to go BIOS anyways. Can I still swap out the pin connector for a 3pin and have it work as PWM on the BIOS?
post #10 of 40
I don't think you can, the green wire sits on the offset side of the fan header. so it sits on the extra 4th pin seat 3+1 so its on that 1. but you can always modify typical 3 pin plug, just grind off the little knobby tab on new connector you are going to use
