ace004 Posted February 7, 2013 Share Posted February 7, 2013 Ok guys I'm building a brand new pc and I'm a complete newbie, so please bare with me. After searching the forums for hours, I decided the h100 was going to be my first dive into water cooling. Keep in mind the pc isn't fully built yet. I read to avoid the fan teething/control issues you could run the fans off of the mobo instead, and adjust the speeds via motherboard control. So I went out and got 4 corsair sp120's and hooked them all up to my mobo fan sockets. Is that all that's needed to bypass the fan problem? I also read that the corsair's software is constantly accessing the harddrive. How can I stop that? Do I just not connect the USB corsair link? Seeing that I don't have my fans plugged into the water block, I would think I could bypass the link stuff. Can the h100I run fine without that usb link cable ever being installed? Would that stop me from ever having the hard drive issues? Does that affect the pump in any way? Is all I need is the sata power connector & 3-pin pump rpm wire? I don't have an extra usb socket available, and was wondering if I even needed it since I want my mobo to control the fans. Is my thinking right here? Remember I'm a complete newbie and I just want to get it all hooked up right. I don't care about multiple cooling profiles or anything like that, I also read somewhere I can do that with 3rd party software and my mobo. Thanks for the help.
