The H100i has FOUR connectors on it:

- USB connector to motherboard
- CorsairLink port to connect to another CorsairLink device, e.g. AX1200i power supply, a second H100i, etc.
- Two dual-fan PWM ports.

Your H100i should have come with TWO cables that have a single connector on one end, and two 4-pin PWM fan headers on the other. See picture - that's my spare, I only used 2 fans with my H100i so I have a spare cable for future use.

Yes I have these cables, however I don't want to use them to connects fans to the H100i as it causes a high pitched noise. They say to plug them into the MB to avoid the high pitched noise, however when I do, they run at full speed and the MB cannot control them as they are not PWM. Looks like I need a fan control kit. I've seen plenty of cheap decent ones that will do a good job manually.

+1 to all.

I don't get any high pitch noise when I plug the factory supplied fans into my H100i.

What brand/model motherboard do you have? The BIOS definitely should have some method for changing fan speed. Like I said earlier, my ASUS P9X79 WS has a physical jumper that must be set before controlling PWM 4-pin fans too. Yours might also have one.

I will look in my motherboard booklet.
It is a known issue that the H100i suffers from high pitch noise when the fans are plugged into the block. Some have it worse than others. Also depends on if you are able to still hear the same frequency that the H100i throws out, which I can.
Cheers.
