**i posted this in air cooling by accident**
reposting to water cooling, some one please let me now how to delet the thread in air cooling so its not a double post!
This isnt a "Should i push/pull" question.
i have been using an H80i and it has served me well, i just recently minimized my pc into a bitfenix prodigy with an Asus impact MOBO, the mobo has 4 fan headers on it. i want to control my fans with my MOBO since windows 8.1 doesnt seem to want to work with corsair link even after trying the registry fix.
with the h80i pump plugged into the mobo i only have 3 headers for fans, my push/pull on the radiator and my exhaust, the 4th fan i leave unplugged as an intake bc it is simply to loud at full speed. id like to have full control over my 4 fans from my mobo and plug the pump directly to a molex to 3-pin from the PSU. Also, the "SATA" plug is plugged in, idk if that is for the built in fan power or if that is for the pump so i left both plugged in to be safe.
Anyone do this?
TL:DR - Can you plug the pump from an H80i directly to a molex to 3-pin connector from the power supply instead of a header on the motherboard without the pump imploding.
