    I have the AIO pump 3 pin (single cable) connector connected to the AIO pump header of my M/B. The fans of the AIO are connected to the AIO's "hub" along with the respective LEDs. Works like a charm.

That 'w.pump' header is designed for separate hand made water cooling systems/loops.
    but on my Asus Rog Strix "E" z690 DDR5 wifi gaming mobo. there is a specific header that says "AIO_PUMP", i tend to think I will not use that because it will probably run the fan at the highest RPM. I think i should just connect it to the CPU_FAN header and be done with it, but dang, how could ASUS make it any more confusing.
