    ASUS XI Gene - Fan Headers?

    Can someone help me out? Wandering how best to manage fans as this motherboard only has one PWM case fan header.

    Sorry if this is a basic question.

    Strange.. I'm reading the online manual and can tell you there's FIVE actual fan headers on the board labeled as :

    Fans:
    CPU_FAN,
    CPU_OPT,
    CHA_FAN,
    FS_FAN1,
    FS_FAN2

    AIO/Pump:
    AIO_PUMP - AIO Pump power header
    W_PUMP - Water pump if your using custom water cooling

    CPU Fans are for CPU fans, both FS Fans run at full speed and aren't controllable. Only CHA_FAN is a PWM controllable fan header.

    You STILL not told us how many fans you're trying to run.

    Hi Team,
    can i jump in on this, as I'm in the same boat. I just purchased this board a few days ago. I have a full corsair build with the maximus gene motherboard.
    I have the h100i rbg platinum cooler plugged into CPU_FAN and my two front case fans plugged into FS_FAN1 and FS_FAN2 . my problem is, I cant seem to get any speed on my radiator fans other than 1400 rpm makes me wonder if I might run into cooling issues while gaming. my two case fans are same model corsair rbg LL series fans, they are running around 4k rpm at all times. pretty loud. I can not seem to find and curve / adjust any of them. can someone with more experience help me out?

    Only the CPU and CHA fan headers (near each other) are controllable - the others will run at full speed all the time.*
    You can choose less noisy fans or use a fan controller...*
