I have found that my 4 very load Masscool fans are not necessary to run while I am running my computer. Even if I do a stress test I do not get any increase in temp. I am guessing this is because I have a huge 1 Gallon resivoir.

If I were you, I would take the fans out. Watercooling is surely enough to cool your rig.

Fans will make little if any difference to your cpu on water. They might make a difference in everything else not water cooled.

What you should do is leave them un but wire them to use 5V instead of 12. Why is because they may not make any difference for your cpu, but your chipset, mosfets, and anything else that does not have a water block on it needs cooling also.

No, I am talking about the fans that cool my heatercore... Not the case fans.

I have 2 intake and 2 exhaust 120mm (96CFM) on my dual heatercore.

Although they are not helping now, I suspect when I OC more (pending a new motherboard) I will need the fans.

I am probably going to sell my system if I get a good offer...

How long did you test load temp for? It might take a while but once all that water heats up temps will be out of control.

The water slowing heats up. It takes about an hour and the temperature start increasing. So if I am just surfing the web/ checking email, or other low power applications, I will turn off the fans. If I am on for a while, or playing a game I will use them.

Is there a chance you could wire them to the CPU fan header and enable thermal control? I wired my cpu fan and all case fans to my header and enabled temperature control in the bios so now all of my fans only spin fast when the cpu gets hot. Be careful you don't overload it though... I wouldn't put more than about 8 watts on it.

Ehhh, I have a wooden housing for all my WC parts, the cables on the fans are long enough to reach the mobo directly.
