I am going to buy the corsair hydro series 50 (Corsair H50) Closed-loop water cooler. I have the Antec 900 and the Asus P6T SE. The cooler has two power pins, one for the fan (for the rad) and one for the pump. I was told i should give full power to the pump (no regulation) and then plug the fan into a header that adjusts quickly to CPU temp, not mobo temp. Could you guys please take a look at these pics and tell me where to plug them. (name of the header and approx. location)? i really appreciate it, i really want to get the best out of this cooler.

On a side note, i might want to do a push pull config, can i use my rear case fan to do so?

Here is my mobo, and cooler:

I have the same cooler. I connected the pump header to any system fan which you can put to run at 100% in the bios. The fan header I connected to the cpu connector. I run mine in push/pull with the rear fan. It works perfectly fine and with much cooler temps than with just one fan. It would be a good idea to make sure your case has a top fan to get the best temps. By the way, your links do not work.

Yes, that is correct. Go into your bios and you should be able to adjust the speed at which they run. Select a target temperature for the cpu_fan header that runs off your cpu temp. For the other header you should be able to select a percentage for which to run. Select 100%. The pump will run at 100% and the fan will throttle up/down based on cpu temp.
