I just installed a Coolermaster Nepton 140xl and was wondering if I have the connections right. I have a Asrock z97 extreme 4 mobo, so right now from my Coolermaster I have a 4 pin for the pump, and a 4 pin Y cable for my 2 140mm fans. I connected the pump to a 3 pin PWR FAN on my mobo, and my Y 4 pin cable to the CPU fan. Is this right? My motherboard has one 3 pin CPU fan2, one 4 pin CPU fan, and one 3 pin PWR fan. Thanks.

Hi and Happy New Year!

Apparently the fans are to be set up using the splitter cable on the 4-pin CPU header. The pump which is NOT PWM can be set up on any fan header on the board, 3 or 4 pin. The pump speed is to be controlled by voltage, either settings in the BIOS or a fan controller...

Then follow the directions that came with the cooler and watch this video:

Are you sure you really want this cooler? It has a copper block with an aluminum radiator = corrosion. Combing two dis-similar metals in a loop is bad business! You' be better off having a cooler with a copper block and a copper radiator...

Is budget a problem?

If you really want this cooler go ahead and get it... I'm not too familiar with it.. Good Luck...
