plug the pump into a fan header and make sure to set it at 100% all the time in BIOS. Then connect the other fans to other fan headers. You don't have to use the male 3 pin header that comes off of the pump, you only have to use the female 3 pin coming off the pump because that powers the pump.

I've got 620s on my cpu and my gpu, looking to upgrade the fans. Leaning toward cougar vortex because they're $10 each right now and supposedly vaguely comparable to the $20+ noctuas.

that's coincidental - I'm stuck on this issue myself:

From my understanding - you can't convert non-PWM fans into PWM ones, thus my SP120's and AF140's will never properly adjust, on the fly to the changes in the CPU temps.

I'm using 8 pwm cougar's but they're connected to a fan controller. However if you really want to use the connector from the 620 you could snip off the sides (will void warranty though) of the connector. I did this with all my molex to 3 pin adapters when using the cougars. You would be better off with a 3pin to 2x 4pin adapter though or jsut use the motherboard fan headers.

TD - you can't just plug them into fan headers on your motherboard?

I was under the impression that the pump would regulate fan speed the voltage way (non pwm) based on some internal logic having to do with internal liquid temps. That's why I was trying to find some way to use that plug for the push/pull fans. Is that not the case? If not and it just spins them at 100% regardless then using the mobo leads would have the same result.

My exact situation: My mobo has 2x pwm leads (1 is cpu) and 2x 3-pin leads. It can control all the fans via Asus Fan Xpert. I'm trying to connect 2 fans each (push/pull) on both 620s, + a 92mm fan over my gfx card ram/vrm, + 2 case fans (1x 140mm, 1x 120mm). That's 7 fans total. I was looking to not spend more than $10 on each fan and the best I found in that price range were all pwm models. Anyone have a similar setup and some idea how they should be daisy-chained?

I'll check soon as I plan to open the PC - however the fans are not 4 pin, they are 3 pin ones - meaning they are not PWM compatible, and thus meaning they don't downclock to 600-800RPM and constantly run at 1500RPM.

Try a PWM Y cable? That way you can connect two fans to the single header on the motherboard (you said there are two PWM headers on your board right? so you could control 4 PWM fans).

By the way those cougar fans use 0.31A or 3.72watts. The typical mobo header is 1A or 12watts. So two cougars running off a single mobo header should be fine.

I completely forgot my radeon 7970 has a 4pin fan header for itself, that brings me up to 6 pwm fans. Can Y cables be used in series? (Use 2 to feed 3 fans from the same lead?)

Is it worth looking into a cheap fan controller instead at this point since 4 pwm splitters would already be costing me $20+. (and I would think a fan controller would eliminate the need for splitters) Or are fan controllers only good for non-pwm fans?

I believe you can use 2 cables like that, assuming the fan header won't be overloaded by 3 fans. Fan controller vs Y cables is up to you really. A cheap fan controller would probably be a sunbeam tech or whatever they're called.

How many of these cables do you need to buy? There are some inexpensive ones out there.

I have an ASUS P8Z77-V Pro motherboard and I can control 3pin fans on any of my fan headers. I'm sure you could too. It can be done in BIOS or with ASUS Fan Xpert2. A buddy of mine sent me one of those NZXT Sentry2 fan controllers and it controls fans with either 3pin or molex, so I free'd up a bunch of my fan headers with that now. I'll test the SP120's again but I think I just leave them on full speed anyway because they aren't too loud for me. I'll double check.
