Hello, I am planning my PC's components and I have a question about my motherboard and AIO
the motherboard I chose: MSI MPG z490 Gaming Plus
the AIO I chose: CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML360R ARGB

so the motherboard has:
  • 1x 4-pin CPU fan connector
  • 1x 4-pin water pump connector
  • 6x 4-pin system fan connectors
  • 1x 4-pin RGB LED connector
  • 2x 3-pin RAINBOW LED connectors
and the AIO needs:
  • FAN POWER CONNECTOR 4-Pin (PWM)
  • PUMP CONNECTOR 3-Pin
but the pump connector is a 4 pin (on the board), can I still connect it and if not what should I do?
thanks

Yes, you can connect a 3pin pump or fan to a 4pin(PWM) header just make sure that you set it to DC control and full speed.

For pump and fan motors you can use W_Pump header for pump and that 3in1 cable to CPU_FAN header. The rest of cables is for RGB.
