but you are more than welcome to disagree because really - its nothing that will harm anyone/anything anyway - any warranty is suppose to consider 100% speeds so . .

i hope we are cool with disagreeing because now i got a favor to ask:

just got a pair of the noctua 3K leaf blowers and maxing out at 2250rpm. do those require the diane mod to get 3K? i was going for the 2K but these were the same price and can live with it but . .
I picked up 9 of those and all of them cap out at around 2800rpm on their own, but they don't have the surplus torque to maintain those speeds when faced with restrictions like filters and radiators, and a drop to 2250rpm max seems plausible with enough restriction. Have you tested them on their own?

Considering that they run on 12v, their tremendous range (~300-~2800rpm in my batch), and spectacular build quality, I'm pretty happy with them; but I'm curious about this "Diane mod" you mention.

I've heard the same argument before... someone brought (as argument) a reference to an article discussing pump wear for industrial pumps (something like 30K gallons per minute) and how that affects the impeller, etc. The article was correct. The argument wasn't, because you can't put an equal sign between an elephant and a Chihuahua, because they are both mammals and have four legs. Watercooling pumps operate differently from high volume pumps on a ship, with different wear and tear, etc.

About the fans, have you tried running them without PWM pin? Aka just connected to 12V? If they reach 3K RPM (12V, ground, RPM pin), then it's the PWM implementation stopping them from reaching 3K RPM. If they don't reach that speed, there's something off with the fans themselves.
I run 2K RPM Noctuas on my NAS in the attic, directly connected to PSU throgh a molex, with RPM pin connected to the motherboard for control and they reach 2K RPM.

skupples my MCP35x2 has been running nearly 24/7 @ 100% for nearly 10 years.

My secret?

either the fan that blows air on it, or my obscenely clean loop + obscenely well maintained coolant.

There is no need to run at 100%, as well as there's no need to reduce pump speed to less than that. Certainly not to "increase pump lifespan".
I was referring to people recommending lower pump speeds to "avoid damaging the pump", I have no quarrel with people setting their pump speeds for other reasons. To each their own.

I wonder why would the pump make noise in the first place. I assume it's about how it's installed in the system.

I eliminated noise by oversizing the radiator. Fans at 400 RPM at all times, pumps at 100% (both of them), liquid temperature almost never exceeds 40 degrees Celsius except while very heavy gaming in SLI during very hot summer days, and then fans ramp up to 500-550 RPM to maintain 40 degrees Celsius liquid temperature. Right now ambient temperature is 23.7 degrees Celsius and liquid temperature is 26.8.

Larger reservoir? It has nothing to do with cooling, except maybe introducing some 30-second delay in liquid temperature stabilization (by the way, that delay works both ways). That is, of course, unless you have a 50L reservoir

Of course it doesn't sorry I didn't check properly
Doing too much stuff in parallel...
Obviously it's the green wire as described in the threads.
You have to split the green wire.
Don't connect the purple and black, it's the Standby voltage.
Had to find out months ago how to connect it but then I didn't and meanwhile my memory faded away...

Took out the adapter and indeed one is black,
It doesn't really matter which one you put where, the relay will either close or open wire 1/2 with wire 3.
Just like shortening the power on pins with a screwdriver head.

For correctness put the black one on pin 3 and purple on pin 1.

and funny i don't experience any ping pong effect. certainly not after taking a few days to tighten the fan curve:
