So my Thermalright Venomous X RT CPU cooler has arrived, and I'm now planning what I'm going to do. This subject is a very common subject on the internet and forums, and has cause quite some discussions. But basically I haven't been able to find a good, exact and well proven answer. So I hope there is someone here who actually has experience with different setups and might be able to give me a solution for the next situation:
The Venomous X RT comes with a TR-FDB-1300 3 pins fan and moves max 50 CFM.
I currently have the Mugen 2 rev. B on my CPU, which I'm going to replace with the Venomous X. I also want to place the fan of the Mugen 2 on the Venomous X as, to create a push pull setup.
The Mugen's fan is a 4 pins PWM fan and has a max of 1300 RPM and moves max 74.25 CFM.
Best situation would be to pull the power out of the PSU by connecting the fans to a molex cable, and also connect the fans to the CPU fan header for the right speed resulting in the right target temp. But I assume this isn't possible since the TR-FDB is no PWM fan?
If above is indeed not possible, considering the fact I would like to connect the Scythe Fan to the CPU fan header so it will only activate when the CPU becomes hotter than f/e 50 degrees. Which fan should I use as pull, which as push, and why?
what motherboard do you have? i know my asus board will allow me to manually make fan profiles with their software utility, and just remember, if your sticking that powerful of a fan to your supply, be prepared for alot of noise
