I guess what I'm asking is... can 3x Antec 620 pumps run on a single 3-pin from the motherboard?

Although one thing you have to bear in mind here, is your motherboards output in amps.
Pumps require a certain amperage and some motherboard have limited amperage on pins.
Can't remember where this was discussed but I remember seeing it, when I thought of getting a splitter.

Out of interest, why do you have 3 antec 620's and why are you using 1 fan header?

The cable itself will be plugged in to the MB.
Will this cause any problem with the pumps? (Note; I'm not using the 3-pin female on the antec 620.)

Be aware that the typical motherboard header provides 1 Amp/12 Watts. If you overload the header it can burn out.

Not sure what the actual power draw is for the 620 pump (especially when the V1 and V4 may be different). Hopefully running 3 off the same header doesn't exceed 1 Amp.

Hehe. I have one on my cpu, and one on each graphics card smile.gif.
Only reason I want to use one fan header for all of them is simply to reduce the amount of visible wires.

I would not only advise against that, but also warn you for not doing that.
Your 620 pump for the CPU should be in the CPU header.
And your GPU ones, I would try and link them together, in order to run at the same speed.
THIS is simply to avoid the GPU relying on the CPU temps and vice versa.

This is if I'm not mistaken...the cable you have for your 620 is NOT your fan headers but your PUMP wire that USUALLY plugs into the CPU header - correct?

The Kuhler 620 cooling plate should not be bulging and should always be flat, If you can send us some photos of these area, that would help us resolve your issue.

Thanks

I already sent my ticket ID to your RMA dept.

Photos wouldn't show this anyways. I verified the "bowing" with a credit card.

I don't understand: if you can check it with a credit card to see that it's not flat, why can't you take a pic of that "credit card test" and post it in here? Out of sheer curiosity, what method do you use for applying the thermal compound?
post #4918 of 6068
As I already stated I tried reapplying. Pea method and spread method. No difference in results. THe fact that your quoting my credit card tests is kind of obnoxious.
First of all a photo would not capture the view to see that it is bowed. So don't play dumb with me that you don't understand. Your product comes from asetek and they are not all the same, I notice this unit is V4. Im going to guess the version I had that actually worked was an earlier version.

And the fact that you question if I replied paste shows quite some ignorance, bad thermalpaste does not mean 100 degree socket temps. I have been a tech probably longer then you even touched a comp, I know when a product is defective.

No need to get like that, I'm merely stating that if you can tell that it's not a flat surface by using a credit card, then why can't a pic be taken of it? I'm sure that pic would be useful to the Antec rep that's in here. As far as the thermal compound question is concerned, as I stated, I am curious as to what method you were using. There is no reason to get that kind of attitude, I'm simply ruling out the easy solutions. Trying to ping my experience is unreasonable, I'm trying to help you figure out the issue.
