Fan header question on installing Corsair H60 on Asus Rog Maximus VIII Hero LGA 1151


Jan 25, 2018
Hello everyone,

I just finished building my own PC with The Asus Rog Maximus VIII Hero LGA 1151 and I have a question regarding where is the best place to install the pump header and the radiator fan. I have google and find too many different solutions, was wondering what is the best solution installing this on this particular motherboard.

The 1st time I installed it, I plug the Corsair h60 pump header into the CPU_Fan header, and the Radiator Fan into the Chasis_Fan header.

But then I notice this particular motherboard have it own fan header label Pump_Fan. So I was thinking install the Corsair H60 pump header into the Pump_Fan instead, then the Radiator Fan install the CPU_Fan header. I think doing this can able the Radiator fan to spin faster or slower depending on the CPU Temperature?

- But doing this cause a bootup error "CPU Fan speed error detected!" The motherboard recognized it as there is no CPU cooler. I can fix this by going into the BIOS and Disabled CPU Fan Speed, but is this a good idea or not?
