  1. Thank you thats basically what I was wondering. I'm guessing on that display unit sense it has the 4pin pump header it just moves the power from chassis fan pin that its hooked to to the positive and ground on the pump header for if your pump is powered that way and as for the pwm wire im guessing it doesn't do anything with it sense it shouldn't be allowed to change anything with the pump but the tach wire i figure is what its interested to be able to display pump rpm. So I guess is there and issues with me running pwm to the motherboard and splitting the tach wire and running one to the display and the other to the motherboard water pump header?
  2. so ill start by saying that I hope to not get flamed on this question as I know its an odd one... I have an asus maximus xii extreme and currently a corsair xd5 rgb pump res combo. I have a crazy OCD fedish with information being displayed and always available. What I'm trying to do id have a display that monitors the pump rpm, water pressure, temp, etc on my cooling loop. The display im planning on using says that I need the pump pwm wire plugged into it and the display plugs into the chassis fan header on the motherboard for power. I'd prefer the display be plugged into the power supply directly and not the motherboard and I'd like the pump pwm to be plugged into the display and the motherboard so the display shows the rpm but the motherboard is aware of whats going on to. So my questions are specifically... 1. Can I get an adapter to hook the display up to the power supply directly and any thoughts on if i should or not. 2. Is it ok or a bad idea to take the pwm wire from the pump and split it with one going to the display and the other to the motherboard. The pumps power is supplied directly from the power supply and the pwm is only the 2 wires for signal and 5v if i understand correctly. Any thoughts on this are welcome...keep in mind its because I just want the display and such. The unit i wish to use...i prefer not to have a display that requires the computer to be on and a program running in the background. The wire coming off of the unit goes to the chassis fan 3 pin plug but it only has 2 wires, im guessing they are a simple positive and negative.
  3. Thank you for the reply, ill try posting in the water cooling area like you said.
  4. This is the one I'd like...i would like it to be independent of the motherboard or any of the computer systems so I don't have to have a program running in the background. I also like how this one is setup and it'll fit nicely in my case. The wire coming off of it has the fan 3 pin plug but it only has 2 wires in it...i can guess that the 2 wires are the positive and negative.

  6. Ok got the power supply info. It's a enermax revolution 87+ 1000w
  7. Due to some health issues and well other issues i have been forced to try and build a PC cheap but i'd also like to play Star Citizen...reliably. I have acquired a few pieces from people to help me along, but i am not sure how to proceed forward. I have an Asus P9X79 WS motherboard, two Nvidia N560GTX graphics cards (one works i was told one might not), a nice case with a water cooled system built for the board i'm told, and a power supply that has a gold rating but i do not know the name but i was told its able to handle whatever would be put in that case with that motherboard and graphics cards. What i am here mainly asking is whats the best processor for that board for gaming and school (solid works will be the most intense software i believe) and whats the place for likely the best price. and whats the best Ram to get and also again best price? Any information i can get that will help in this endeavor will be greatly appreciated. As far as my actual budget right at this moment its sadly zero. I am looking for and idea of the goal i have to set for myself or is this going to be completely unrealistic. If there is any additional information i can offer on the parts i have ill do my best to answer. thank you, I'm new to Linus Tech Tips, but when i saw the first review on YouTube i was hooked. I am also a fan of Louis Rossmann.
