Hello - I recently finished building my PC. It booted fine originally with the stock AMD cpu cooler. However, temps were running pretty hot - 75C idle (I think this was due to the fact that the stock cooler wasn't screwing in properly) and so I decided to purchase an AIO cooler. After installing the AIO cooler, when booting the computer, I get a "CPU Fan" error that then asks me to go press F1 to run the bios.

Excuse the blurriness of the picture, but please see below. AIO Pump seems to be reading and averaging around 1000RPM. But I don't quite know what to do from here. Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Can you share images of how the pump is connected to the motherboard/system? None of the CPU fans show up in BIOS meaning that they aren't connected, you should have the pump connected to the CPU_FAN header on the motherboard as stated on your AIO's manual.
Happy to! Thanks for offering to help. And let me know if you think the way I have things set up is not ideal.

I ended up connecting the 3-pin connector to the 4-pin AIO_Pump connector on the motherboard (I didn't need the breakout cable set because I am using Lian Li Fans, not the stock NXTZ fans). I believe the manual says the following. Let me know if I interpreted it incorrectly. "Connect the 3-pin connector on the breakout cable set to the 4-pin CPU_FAN or AIO_PUMP connector on the motherboard."

I also have the AIO pump connected to the SATA cable and a USB 2.0 port (the one that is circled on the right).

In regards to the case fan setup, I am using Lian Li SL120 Uni Fans that are daisy chained to one another (set of 3 and set of 2). There is a connecting wire that attaches to each set of fans (see third picture below). I then run those into the Lian Li Controller (see fourth picture below). The control has a Sata cable that I plug into my power supply and a USB cable that I plugged into my motherboard (see picture above - it is the one circled on the left).
