to install corsair link software on the corsair h100i do you have to hook the usb device to the pump ?

I just bought the corsair h100i and on the box it says it supports corsair link how do I get corsair link to work . my only corsair product I have in my computer is the corsair h100i when installing the corsair h100i there was a wire that connects to a extra usb 2.0 port on my motherboard do I have to hook up that wire to my usb header for corsair link to work or is it just as simple as downloading the software ?

Yes that cord is what Corsair Link uses for its software. There is no other way your computer can detect what is happening with your h100i otherwise. You can infer what it is doing, like current CPU temperatures but even then that is only what you can infer.

Corsair Link will work without the cord but it won't detect the h100i without the cord installed on the usb 2.0 header.

what are the benefits of having corsair link software hooked up to the corsair h100i ? will the link software tell you if you have a leek or if there is some thing wrong with your cooler ?

Direct from Corsair:

"Corsair Link monitoring and control
Monitor temperature and control lighting and fan speed on your screen. No additional hardware is necessary.

Built-In Corsair Link
No additional hardware is necessary – just connect the included Corsair Link cable to a USB header on your motherboard and download the free Corsair Link Dashboard software. You can monitor coolant temperature and adjust cooling performance directly from your desktop."

I don't think it will tell you about a leak but this other stuff is nifty.

seems like a nice feature I would like to change the led blue to match my case . but I don't know if my motherboard has a extra usb 2.0 header my motherboard is the asus z87 rog hero and if it does have a extra usb 2.0 header how will I run the usb cable to it I have x2 graphic cards and I am very anal about cable management

You should have enough headers on that Asus Z87 ROG HERO:

Internal I/O Ports
-2 x USB 2.0 connector(s) support(s) additional 4 USB 2.0 port(s)

And that Thermaltake Overseer RX-1 has plenty of pass through for cables, the length of that CL cable makes me wonder about whether it will work but I think those cables are pretty long.

I checked out a picture of my motherboard it does have a extra usb 2.0 header . but the usb 2.0 header cable the corsair h100i comes with do you think it is long enough to run behind the motherboard ? I think corsair should have put the usb connector that is on the pump on the right side of it instead of the left side

I have a Corsair AX1200i and it came with a cable for Corsair Link, it was pretty long and did work. I'm pretty sure it'll be long enough, I think.
