Setting the limit to the lowest limit ( 300?) didnt help so I move the H80iGT's connector to the WaterPump header and ignored the CPU monitoring as this is what I did on my earlier X99 Boards.

My Water Cooler is the AIO H80iGT and while the fans themselves (SP120) are 4pin PWM they connect to the H80i through a dual Fan header which only has a 3 pin connector to the MB , so I read it should be set to DC Mode , I assume cos the H80iGT's own Firmware controls the fans via USB with CorsairLink. ( and it doesn't have the 4th wire anyway)
Is there a Thread on Q-Fan or a Tutorial maybe , I'm new to X99 and it's been a few years since I had an Asus board too.
is it a 3 or 4 pin fan?
The H80iGT has a 3Pin to the MB even though the fans themselves are 4Pin PWM Fans ...two x SP120's these are plugged into a double 4pin Connector but the lead to the MB out of it has only 3 Wires , and I read earlier on the Forums to set it up under DC Mode because of this. BTW the H80 does not have separate Pump and Fan Connections , it is one 3 wire only .

Thanks Djgar I appreciate it .
And VibraSlap , BIG thanks
, appreciate you taking the time to type that up and getting a pic for me , I will have another go at it tonight. I don't usually use Optimise all but after about the 15 failed boots due to the fan error I got desperate
So after another Play in the Bios and 20 failed boots I put the H80 connector on the CPU_OPT Header ,since the Bios totally ignores it
( no settings possible)
And at the risk of sounding like a total Noob
if I monitor the CPU Fan the CPU Q-Fan setting is automatically disabled on every boot , and Boot Fails. And it is likely I have been on a GB Board too long , but I assumed if I didn't monitor it , it was disabled.....not the case !
I attached a spare Cougar 120mm to the CPU Header to test some more in Dc Mode and can control it but am still not sure I have it working right yet. need to look into it a bit more.
