    Best FAN setup and temperature sources for max airflow

    Hi all,

    As far as i know, there are so many combinations to set up fans, their input sources and spin configurations. That is why i am a bit confused about how to setup my system. So i have a couple of questions.

    Firstly my summary configuration is,

    ( Asus Rog Strix Z370-E, Asus Rog Strix GTX 1080 Ti, Be Quite Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU cooler, Fractal Define R6 , 3 X Be Quite 1400 mm PWM (2 Intake + 1 Exhaust )

    So i am confused about how to configure my 3 chases fans,

    1- We can configure our fans either by BIOS settings or Fan Xpert software. Is there any difference of advantages one to another?
    2- Which components cause the heat most and in which order?
    3- I am planning to connect one of my intake fans to the GPU card. Then I believe i can select GPU + CPU combo as input for that fan. Any idea how a socket on graphics card knows about CPU temperature?
    4- Does it make sense to configure exhaust fan (out fan) according to CPU or GPU? Or is it better to configure exhaust fan independently from CPU or GPU?
    5- I can also connect one of the intake fans to chases fan on mobo. Then it seems i can choose up to 3 temperature sources to configure that fan. I can also select CPU as source. However, does it make sense to choose CPU if i choose auto mode from option 3 above?
    6- Does it make sense to configure one fan directly for GPU and one for CPU temperature?
    7- Do PCH and motherboard temp is discardable compared to CPU and GPU?

    Basically, what is best setup for 3 fans?

    Many thanks
