Medwynd Posted December 19, 2013 Share Posted December 19, 2013 Parts: H100i 4 x Cougar Vortex CF-V12HP PWM fans ASUS Maximus VI Hero motherboard I am looking to run the H100i in a push/pull configuration. I do not plan on using Corsair Link and do plan on using FanXpert 2 that is part of the AI Suite that comes with the Hero. The Hero only supports a max of 1A on the CPU_FAN connector. The Vortex is rated at 0.31A according to the fan sticker. Originally I had planned on connecting all 4 fans to the y splitters and then connecting them to the block. It looks like the pump has a sata power connector and a 3 pin fan header connector. Does the H100i power the fans from the 3 pin, the sata power connector, or both? Does the 3 pin connector need to be hooked up to control the pump speed? Could I hook up the sata power and leave the 3 pin connector unhooked. Then plug 2 fans via the splitter into my CPU_FAN header and plug the other splitter into the CPU_OPT header? EDIT: It looks like toasted mentioned in another thread that "Yes, The 3-pin connector coming out from the H100i is for the RPM readings. The pump will run at max. speed all the time." Which makes it sound like all the power for the pump and the connected fans comes from the sata power connection. Can anyone verify? This 3 pin connector also looks like it is recommended to be hooked up so it will throw a CPU_FAN error if the pump does fail. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
