    AIO pump: where do you connect it?

    Hi guys. I was wondering where did you connect your AIO pump. I have an h100i v2 and at the beginning I have connected it to the CPU header, then I switched to the pump header and I have connected an exhaust fan to the CPU header.

    I have noticed that by switching to the pump header the AIO is extremely louder than it was when It was connected to the CPU header. I believe the reason is because now the pump constantly running at 100%. I was wondering if also the AIO fans are now running at 100% though which might be the reason why the AIO is so loud.

    Any suggestion?

    Thank you!

    Connect the pump power cable to the CPU_FAN header on your motherboard. • Connect the fans to the two connectors coming off the pump. this is from the manual on corsair web site - Link > http://www.corsair.com/en-us/hydro-s...uid-cpu-cooler

    For silence and to better control the pump+fans using your bundled software, connect to CPU_FAN then fans go to pump connection. If you want to control everything from BIOS (Using Q-FAN for example on AIS3) you can connect to AIO Pump, then your CPU fans through the CPU_FAN header directly. Please note that AIO pump header is high amp and will run your pumps at max speed all the time.

    Which solution would you advise? I have read that the pump deteriorate faster if it's not set at a constant speed. However, it is my understanding that the most recent ones won't experience this issue.

    @Gettinthere: I have tried what the corsair manual suggested at the beginning, but the z270h motherboard has an AIO pump header so you have alternatives which is why I'm asking to share experiences. I'd like to understand what's the best setup. For sure I can tell you that the one advise by Corsair is the most quiet so far but I'm not sure if that's optimal. I am no expert and this is my first AIO, so I'm even seeking some advise on how to set the bios in case I decide to connect the AIO to the pump header instead of the CPU header.

    I suggest you to read carefully the manual as you'll get all the info you need.

    I recommend not using software to control your AIO, the following settings have worked for me without added software
    Connect the pump power to to a SATA power connector, connect the pump control to the AIO header and let it run at 100% (the pump on 100% is very quit).
    Connect the 2 radiator fans to CPU and CPU_opt fan headers on motherboard.
    Control the fans in the bios, set to turbo if overclocking the CPU, silent for a more quit system, or standard

    By default, thee aio header is configured to run at full speed. This is because some aio pumps don't spin-up at lower speeds. You can set the header to be controlled, though. The parameters and behaviour are the same as a normal fan header.

    Thanks everyone, I appreciate your advises. For someone new in PC building this is a real help.

    I will try Menthol's suggestion and I'll let you know how it worked for me.

    So, I wasn't able to connect both fans to the CPU headers as the bottom one couldn't reach it (I have the AIO in the front). However, I have connected the top one to the CPU_opt and the bottom one to the chassis. I was able to control the fans from the bios and set them to standard. I have noticed that my BIOS recognise doesn't recognise my rear fan even though it works just fine.

    Do not hesitate to give me more advises if you have some, as previously mentioned I truly appreciated them. Thanks for your support!
