But there are still boards where that doesn't happen.
You can also control your fans via Fan Controller.
No man, it's not. The only thing from the H100 plugged into the main board is the tac line into the CPU_FAN header so you don't get a fan error. The fans are run from the pump/block. The fans that come with it are 3 pin fans. It has two additional 4 pin connectors available that can run either 3 pin or 4 pin fans.
The only other connector is the molex connector that goes to the power supply. The H80 and H100 are not like the H50/H70.

So, I'm running the stock fans in push and the sickleflows in pull. Cut out the top grill so I can mount my rad outside of the case, horizontally.
Wonder if my 200mm fan would work better as the pull fan? Moves a lot more cfm, but a lot less rpm.
There is a problem with your block. You better RMA it. It should control the stock fans without issue. I have four fans plugged into my H100 block.

Reminds me of a Johnny Cash song (well, not quite).
Whoa whoa whoa ring of fire......
