Wait, so you can control the fans and pump all from the bios without the icue software?As long as the pump has a regular fan connector just control it in bios. I do this with all the Corsair AIOs I’ve used. Including the H100iv2 I run now. Asus Ai suite or the like works fine too for monitoring or setting curves. Basically treat the pump like a fan
I was considering plugging in the fans directly into the board, and the pump into the board via it's usb header.
Never used water cooling before.
