  1. well i have the Gigabyte ga-z97x-sli and thats the way it works properly. it is the way it is meant to work...
  2. The pump goes to CPU OPT header, while the fans go to CPU Fan header. it is as easy as that
  3. One thought for the Cooler Master Nepton 140XL : i have it coupled with intel core i7 4790, gigabyte ga-z97x-sli mobo, and a gtx 970, and when checking the temps in the gigabyte center, on idle, keeps my processor at 16-17 degrees celsius. i must say, i am very pleased with it. no whine from the pump, it is deadly silent
  4. do you have another 4pin header on your motherboard? if you do, try connecting it there.
  5. have you tried connecting the fans to a pwm header (that is the one with 4 pins, not 3) ? hook them on the pwm header and you should be fine
  6. yes, you can fit it, although it will go on the bottom since it has this kind of fan support: 3 x 180mm intake fan 700/1200rpm, 18/34dBA. i use the nepton 140xl and i am very satisfied.
  7. please refer to this support page, you will get a better info there: scroll down, you will see a compatibility list for compatible cases.
  8. no, the cpu fan header in your case controls the pump. and yes, you should switch from smart mode to pwm to enjoy the full glory of the cooler
  9. the pump should be connected on the cpu fan header. the fans go on the 4pin header (pwm) in order to controll the fan speed.
  10. yeah, my advice still stands: get the nepton 140xl for the cpu, the one listed in that link is just miserable. . . you will experience throttling because of the temps with the listed cpu cooler . . .
  11. suggestion: go with liquid cooler for the cpu, not the airflow...there are pretty descent aio cpu water cooled units around the same price as this.i have this one: and i am so happy with it. if you can get it, get it, its worth the extra $20
  12. what about the quality, that is my BIGGEST concern since some a***les said it is junk...that made me think twice when buying this psu...
  13. i would go with that, but since i will be using the system mainly for running multiple virtual machines, the b600 will be enough and reliable?
  14. the wattage is not that important now, i can get any of the three psu's, pretty much the same price. but the thing is some people said that the two (the gx lite and the both @ 600W are low quality and junk, and thats why i decided to come here and discuss that. so, the gx lite or the b @600W ? and those are good psu's , wont let me down?
  15. well adding a psu of 1000W will serve you very well anyways, but you will see the difference in the monthly electric bill you will be fine with 800W at most.
