    Unless otherwise noted it's best to connect AiO pump to connector made for it and radiator fan(s) to CPU_Fan on MB. I like to have pump run at full speed and radiator fans to to be regulated by CPU. Changing pump speed doesn't affect cooling instantly and in few seconds that pass until water makes full circle (or two) temperature may raise too far.

    Mike on the Thermaltake Floe Riing RGB TT Premium-Edition 360mm, all three fans are connected to a controller box, and the controller is connected to a USB 2 header and PSU.
    In the instructions it says to connect the pump to a fan header. But I'm guessing that's because not all boards have an extra AIO header, and they tried to make this fit all boards.
    But also what I was saying is, it was kind of a pain in the neck setting the BIOS to use and monitor the AIO and not the CPU header(I never have had to, do this before), because it of course, would not let me into Windows until it was all set correctly.

    It's normal for BIOS to complain when it doesn't sense CPU_Fan, maybe that's why they said to connect pump to it.

    Yep, I thought that too.

    I just need to learn the ASUS BIOS better is all.An idea came to me while I was showering(when most good ideas do):

    The motherboard manufacturers should have an "interactive BIOS training/familiarization page" for each motherboard series.
    That way you wouldn't actually have to go into BIOS to learn about/find it, and when you had a question about something(while in BIOS), you wouldn't need to fire up another PC to search about it.

    This is my first UEFI bios, still catching up with it. Wgat's even worse, every BIOS update changes a lot of stuff around.

    Good Luck with that idea Cliff .....

    And what happens when you have a BIOS update and all the options change? It's not that hard, but it takes a while. Seriously though you don't need to know about 90% of the stuff in bios, you'll never use it.

    Because I use full 12 volts to all pumps and fans I do not use the cpu fan or pump header on the motherboard.
    I just set the bios setting to' Wait For 'F1' if error to disable.

    Now I don't have to hit the 'F1' key during boot.

    All modern MBs have separate controls for each header and also PWM/voltage switch. It's handy to know what RPM is pump running and you can't get that with connection to PSU only.

    Ya but if you know your fan is supposed to run at say 1500 RPM hooked up directly to 12 volt then it should run at least close to that.

    I have my 140 radiator fans hooked up directly to the PSU.
