I'm a new forum member and this is first post so hello to all.
I'm looking for a little assistance/help with setting up my new Corsair H100. What I'm trying to do is have my H100 setup in a push pull configuration using 4 x Noctua NF-F12 120 x 25mm PWM fans. I'm curious about the fan connections and the cooler block/pump connections.
From what I can tell I can not hookup these fans to the cooling block/pump part of the H100 and have things work correctly. I instead need to hook up the fans to a 3rd party fan controller or hook up the fans to the motherboard headers.
So to the Questions:
1) With not using the H100 for fan control I do not need to connect the one lead from the cooling block/pump to the CPU header on the motherboard, the pump will get power from the molex connection, correct?
2) Without using the H100 for fan control the button on the cooling block/pump is moot and nothing needs to be touched for the pump to work properly, meaning the pump is not speed controlled by this button?
3) I read below (post #16) http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=106623
"I am running 4 of the Cougar 120mm PWM fans w/ my H-100 in push-pull. They are all powered by a splitter cable that takes power directly from the PSU (via a molex) and sends the rpm signal to a PWM controlled CPU FAN header, which sends the PWM speed control signal back to the fans via the splitter."
Can someone spend a little time clarifying this some more with regards to the wiring of this configuration OR with information to a pre-made splitter that works?
Thanks for reading
