Hi,

I am installing my first AIO - Corsair h100i.
I'm looking for some clarity on confusion I had while reading the instructions. (Attached below)

Mainly:
  • Are "headers" any socket on the mobo, or are "headers" only the ones on the edge for the front case usb ports?

  • My mobo has a "sys_Fan4_PUMP", this isn't mentioned on the AIO instructions.
    • What do i plug into this?
  • My board has (2) usb 2.0 hub sockets around the middle of the board, AND "f_usb1" "f_usb2" headers.
    • What is the difference between the 2.0 hubs and the "f_usb" headers?
    • Which one of these do i plug in the"iCUE USB cable from the AIO?
    • Do i lose one of the front case usb ports if i plug in the AIO into one of the "f_usb1/2" ports?
The AIO instructions say to:
  • Connect the Pump power cable to a Sata power plug.
    • Are all Sata sockets "power" plugs?
  • Connect Pump Tach cable to CPU_FAN.
  • Connect fans to the shrouded 4pin connector.
  • Connect USB cable to mobo USB 2.0 Header.
Considering my board has a designated "Sys_Fan4_PUMP" and Usb 2.0 Hubs:
  1. Does "Pump Tach Cable" still plug into "CPU_FAN"?
  2. Does the "iCUE Usb Cable" plug into "f_usb1/2" or "Usb 2.0 Hub"?

Yeah, wiring AIOs can be tricky, even more so when when there's RGB involved.

The 3pin on figure 1 goes on CPU_FAN, just like you mentioned. The USB cable thing goes into either of the connectors numbered as 15 in your motherboard manual.

That's all there is to it. :)
