Where to connect AIO?

Hello,

My friend gave me a Corsair H115i 280mm AIO and I'm about to set it up soon but are unsure where to connect it. The AIO has a 3-pin connector that goes into the motherboard CPU fan header according to Corsair. But in the motherboard there is an AIO header as well which according to Asus it runs full speed. The two fans for the radiator connection comes off the AIO pump. So should I connect it to the CPU fan header or the AIO header? I feel like if it's connected to the AIO header then the fans will be running full speed all the time?

Cheers

why would they make a pump header that only runs at 100%?

if that's the case, and you want to be able to control the pump speed, then don't use that header?

Unless you’re going for a silent build, I’d run the pump full speed. On mine the difference in volume isn’t noticeable if even 1 other fan is running. The fans on the other hand shouldn’t be at full speed all the time unless you’re running really hot!

Use the AiO header. These are made to see 12V at all times. Neither the fan or pump speed is controlled by the header. The USB hookup allows you to use Corsair Link for control. If you don't use Link, the unit defaults to balanced mode.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

I used the AIO header and the software controls everything as I set it.
I don’t know if I’m liking this AIO tho, it is loud AF under load and the CPU gets 5c hotter than the stock cooler under cinebench run. I’m not impressed at all to be honest.
I wonder if lapping the AIO plate would increase the thermal conductivity and thus improve my temps. The AIO copper surface is considerably rougher than my old air cooler.
Thoughts?
