    Maximus X Hero and Celsius S36

    Hey ROG Community,

    Which fan header should I use for my Fractal Design Celsius S36 AIO? My first thought was the AIO_PUMP header and just disable the CPU_FAN. However, I'm wondering if there is an adverse effects to doing so? Can I still properly monitor temps and get fan control? Does the CPU_FAN header have enough power to run the three fans and the pump?

    Am I just overthinking this?

    Temperature monitoring is independent of the changes you make to the fan header. It will always be present unless you disable it. As for fan control, how many cables do the S36 have? Most AIOs usually come with two cables: one for the pump and one for the fan. IF that's the case, I'd plug the pump cable into the AIO_PUMP header and the fan cable into the CPU_FAN header.
