I have a Seidon 240M on a Gigabyte EX58UD4P with a mild OC'd I7-920 (3.6Ghz). Short version: How to I connect the fans to maintain Pump cooling and monitoring as well as dual radiator fans following CPU temp? Long version: I have the Watercooler pump connected to the 4 pin CPU fan header, set to Locked full speed in the BIOS. This Mobo has no secondary CPU fan header so the dual watercooler fans are connected to the 4-pin sys fan 2 header with the supplied splitter cable, and this default runs @ about 20% (and does not change under CPU load). Idle temp ~40C and load peaks at 82C (prime95). 22C ambient. I can however set the speed of the dual fans (sys fan 2) manually using Open hardware monitor or speedfan. At 100% fan speed the temp drops by 15C under load but is quite loud. Sys fan 1 and 3 headers are connected to the front and back case fans. They are 3 pin headers. Open hardware monitor does see these and reports fan speed, but adjusting speed does nothing. They don't appear to be running full speed. I'm thinking I would be better served connecting the watercooler pump to an alternate header, and let the Dual fans run off the CPU fan header to follow CPU temp. Is that right? - and how to I do this on this mobo, and maintain pump speed monitor or failure warning? Was looking at a Molex--> 3-pin fan adapter but this means I lose failure warning - right? is that bad? The manual only instructs to connect both the Cooler pump and Fans to 4 pin headers. Thanks in Advance. Dabade
