[SOLVED] AIO radiator + fans where should I connect the fans and controller?

hi all, I have a Fractal AIO system with 3 fans which all go to one general header on the mobo. There is another connector coming of the pump unit which I have currently plugged in to the MOB on the CPU Fan header. I also have 1 rear exhaust and 2 top mounted exhaust fans on generic fan headers.
My question is twofold :
Would I be better to connect the AIO pump to the AIO Pump header or leave it where it is?
On the body of the pump there is a twist setting selector for PWM or AUTO, which one would be better to use??

Any help and advice greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Kev

Thanks Paperdoc
I got where to plug in but is it recommending the Auto or PWM setting on the pump itself? A bit confused as to what is better.

Cheers

AUTO should be fine. The pump unit is designed to adjust itself that way. Actual control of the CPU internal temperature is still done by the CPU_FAN header by changing the rad fan speeds. But this pump speed adjustment is just a "fine-tuning" item to assist with heat removal at the right rate.
