Fan connection on PSU

Corsair Hydro series h50 cpu cooler

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi there,
I have a newly purchased Cooler Master ATCS 840, i7
930, Corsair H50, Corsair HX750. Obviously wanting
maximum cooling I was going to have the push pull
arrangement on the H50 but where should I attach the
push/pull fans for power? directly to the PSU? If so

Many thanks

Some PSU's come with a connector or an adapter. They make adapters for hard drive to fan as well as hard drive to speed control to fan to select speeds.

Unless you plan on overclocking to the extreme, water cooling is a waste of money.

"where should I attach the push/pull fans for power?"

Push/pull fans? The cooler comes with one large fan for the radiator. Judging from the plug, it connects to the motherboard where a conventional HSF would normally connect. If you're talking about case cooling fans, they're usually connected to the board as well. All you should need is one rear exhaust fan, no side fans, front intake fan is optional & generally unnecessary.

Cases with bottom mount power supplies are a poor choice.
