Some little bit of FUD going around here.
The molex connector provides +12V for the pump and the fans. If you don't plug it in your pump and fans will not work.
The smaller connector is a Tac signal from the pump. You plug it into your CPU header for a couple of reasons.
1: So you know how fast the pump is operating
2: So you do not get a "CPU_FAN Error" when you boot the computer. If you don't connect it, you will generate an error (depending on your mobo) every time you boot. Besides, it's nice to load software like Speedfan and actually see your pump is running normally (it will show up as your CPU fan).
Note, don't bother setting the fan port to control the pump. There's no control wire, only the Tac signal. The block controls the pump.
The fans on the H80 and H100 plug into the block, not the CPU_FAN header. (I do wish people would get it right before offering advice). This will allow you to control them using one of three settings by just clicking the button on the block. Each setting is a range of RPMs that will control the fans in that range depending on the temperature of the CPU. You have a low range, medium range and a high range each activated by just pressing the button. The white indicator on the button indicates which range you are currently using.
Now, if you know what you are doing you can come up with other ways of connecting the fans and the Tac signal from the pump, but if you're not an advanced user I would recommend connecting it as mentioned above.
As an example, I have replaced my Corsair fans with a couple of PWM fans. I connected my pump Tac signal to a case fan header so I can still see the RPM (and I have a warning set on that header if it should fail), but my fans are connected to a PWM splitter. This allows me to plug them into the CPU_FAN header while drawing the power to run the fans from the PSU through the splitter. So, in my system the CPU_FAN header controls the speed of my fans depending on how hot the cpu is. I prefer having my motherboard control them over having the H100 block control them. This way I get a greater range of RPM, and I don't have to open my case to change ranges.
However, the disadvantage is that the fans I used (Scythe Slip Stream 1900 RPM 110 CFM PWM fans) are not as good as the stock Corsair fans because they don't have as high of a static pressure as the stock Corsair fans have. That's a tradeoff I made to connect them to my CPU_FAN header.
No matter what you read, CFM (cubic feet per minute) is not as important of a factor for rad fans as static pressure is. You're better off having a lower CFM fan with higher static pressure than a higher CFM with a lower static pressure. Unfortunately, not all the manufacturers list their static pressure. For example, Scythe makes one of the best rad fans (Gentile Typhoons) but they never list their static pressure so we can only go by people's results and opinions when comparing them to other fans.
If I was you, I would plug the fans into the block and use the highest range. Why have them running at 100% all the time if you don't need to?

I am going to be using coolermaster Excalibur fans I think they are pretty good for the H100. Below are the specs tell me what you think

Those look like pretty good fans for 2000 RPM. 3.53 mmH20 is pretty good. For a comparison the stock H100 fans are:

2500 RPM
92 CFM
7.7mm/H20

They are higher RPM, a little better static pressure and likely louder. I think the fans you picked out should be ok.

Thanks. I try to let others know when I see something I don't think is right. It wasn't serious or anything, but people should be aware of how the product works so they can make informed decisions.

to anyone that modded their h50, is there any corrosion risk between the rad and cpu plate?

I'm wondering this as well, as you would need to add some sort of anti-corrosive additive since the rad is aluminum and the plate is copper.

Also, if anyone is interested in a H50 with 2x Yate Loon High Speeds, I am selling it for $45 shipped ($40shipped without the fans)! I'll be making my own custom loop (though it's all XSPC parts) soon and I need the funds from the H50 to get me a CPU block.

here is my H80 put into my HAF 912 with a slight mod, to get a good intake spot.
I also went with a shroud for each fan. This thing is pretty quiet even ramped up.
