Need guidance for my H100i GTX cooler, exhausted trying to fix it! Please!

Okay guys so firstly please excuse me if I come off ignorant, I don't have very extensive exp with these things.

Okay so here is my situation:

I had my H100i GTX cooler in another build and it worked great. I bought completely new parts for a new build and everything works.
However, whenever I turned on my computer, the fans on the cooler immediately went full rpms it seemed. They were so loud. I have it plugged into the CPU-FAN header, which is a 4 prong header. The wire from the cooler is a 3 point. In the BIOS, even when I change the speed, nothing changes. Also, when I am in desktop, no software recognizes the fans. They just spin on loud. Oh also, Corsair Link doesn't even recognize the cooler and I can feel the water running.


My build is:

GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GTX 1070.
i5 7600k
ASRock Z270 Killer SLI
G-Skill Ripjaws DDR4 2666mHz
WD Blue SSD
Rosewill Quark 750w.


Please help! Thank you so much.
I'm exhausted from trying.

  1. You did connect the USB cable from the pump to the MoBo, right? Look your H100i GTX manual, page 6.
    Without that USB cable, there's no way Corsair Link can detect your AIO, which enables you to control the pump and rad fans RPM.

    Yes, I tried both of my USB 2.0 headers to no avail. They both work though because I tested out my case USB 2.0 ports on both headers.!

  3. Okay, so the error is on the software side. There's plenty of topics about how to fix it, like this one here,

    Give it a go and look if you can get Corsair Link to detect H100i GTX.

    Okay, thank you.
    I'll try it out. But this wouldn't explain why even my bios won't detect the fan, would it?

    Since the rad fans are connected to the cable that comes off from pump, BIOS can't detect rad fans (manual, page 5).
    BIOS will detect your rad fans if you plug them directly into SYS_FAN header.

    As far as controlling the pump via BIOS when it's connected to CPU_FAN header goes, pump doesn't operate in DC control as regular 3-pin fans do. Since AIO is more complex, you'll need dedicated software (Corsair Link) to control the speed of the pump and fans on the rad.
