Hello everyone, can you tell me how to connect the pump? The instructions say that you need to connect to the PUMP_FAN connector, but there is no such connector on my board. There is a CPU_FAN and CPU_FAN_OPT connector, an asus P8Z68 v board. Is it possible to connect the pump to the CPU_FAN_OPT connector, and the fans to CPU_FAN, will this not harm the motherboard and the pump?, or is it better to connect the pump directly to the Molex power supply?

it does not matter, they will do the same thing. if you connect the 3 pin pump header to the CPU OPT, it will run at full speed constantly. if you connect with a Molex power adapter, it will also get a stable 12v power supply.
