Cooler Master Seidon 120M Help?

This goes for all liquid coolers, but do I plug the pump or the fan into the the CPU fan header or both since the mobo has a secondary CPU header?

I think you can do both and have the option to control the pump speed like a PWM fan. I could be wrong though.

Ok, I don't really care about being able to control it I just want to plug it in and leave it alone and let the motherboard handle it.

It'd still be both.

Ok, so lets see if I undestand you correctly

1)Plug both the fan and the pump into the CPU headers

2)Or plug the fan into the CPU header cause it's 4-pin and the pump into the mobo cause it's 3-pin or into a 3-pin to molex adapter that comes with the PSU and directly into there

Which ever you think is correct just say 1 or 2, sorry for not understanding, I'm new to water cooling, and thanks for all you're help. I might also just see if there is a manual to the cooler I can download, it'll probably explain it in there.

Well if you want your pump to run at 100% all the time, Molex would be fine. Otherwise, plug the pump into the CPU header. I know the H100i plugs into the CPU header then you plug the fans into the actual block, but I don't know how the CM Seidon works

Ok, thanks I think I try to find a manual and see if it says there.

I found a manual for it on CM's website and it looks like you should plug the fan into a 4-pin to take advantage of PWM capabilities, since he fan has a 4-pin connection and the pump can either be plugged into a 4-pin or 3-pin since it just has a 3-pin connection so it wouldn't matter.
