  1. I just got my water loop setup and I would like to fill my reservoir to the brim(no air). Will this cause issues with the hydraulic pressure in water as it heats/cools? If so, how much of an air gap in the reservoir should I leave? Thank you.
  2. I have the EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM pump and I'm trying to power it without powering the rest of my system. How would I go about doing this? The pump plugs into a PWM fan header on my motherboard so it has no way to get power. Do I need to get some kind of molex to 4-pin header? Thank you.
  3. Thank you for this answer. I wasn't aware you could use splitters for RGB headers.
  4. I'm planning on getting a custom loop to cool my 9900k and I was wondering how I am supposed to control/power the RGB. I'm looking at 3 EK-Vardar EVO 120ER RGB fans, 1 EK Maximus XI Hero RGB monoblock, and 1 EK RGB pump/res combo. I've never used any RGB components before. The page for the Vardar fans says they use standard 4-pin 12V RGB connectivity. Does this mean I have to plug one cable from the fan to a 4-pin PWM header like you would for normal fans and another cable to one of the RGB headers on my motherboard? If this is the case, I don't think my motherboard has enough RGB headers on it to support all the RGB components I'm getting. Asus's website says the Maximus XI Hero has 2 Aura RGB Strip Headers and 2 Aura Adressable Strip Headers. Will I need to get something like an RGB controller and if so what would you guys recommend?
