Total N00B to watercooling... here's my setup - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Too little too late I suppose, but did you look into a front panel fan controller that uses the PWM signal from the mobo for setting fan speeds automatically? I just ordered one even though I have a 6-fan manual one, because I'd like my water cooling loop to just be automated in regards to the fans. That way I don't have to tell it "Oh, it's gaming/folding/whatever time" and have to adjust the fan speeds manually. It just sees the higher temps and will increase the speed of the fans hooked up (You can still manually control the fans by pushing a button to set it to manual, like for your chipset fan or whatever. I think PWM is my favorite feature of moving to P67 from P45

Edit:

I forgot to mention, beautiful setup by the way I'm hoping to go to eyefinity soon, but only 1 6950 for now. hopefully I'll get that one under water soon, then add another shortly after.

thanks I honestly haven't had to touch the fans since I set them. My motherboard has PWM for the fans but I'm not using it at all, all fans are controlled by the fan controller.
