can you guys help me please , I bought a Asus z390 strix and h115i. I plugged both radiators fans into splitter and then connected the pump thing to AIO Pump... is that right so far ? So my question is I got 3 Corsair ll 120s .. 2 at top and 1 in back all exhaust. and on this motherboard only has cha_fan 1 and 2 so I plugged two fans in each one idk where to plug the 3rd fan .. other then like getting a fan splitter or commander pro. Where can I plug the 3rd fan into.. would cpufan or cpuopt be an option?? Plz help :)

You're meant to connect the H115i's pump to CPU_FAN, according to the manual of the cooler. From what I can tell the AIO_PUMP header is there for some other AIO coolers that need the fan header to always deliver full power, which CPU_FAN does not, because it'll scale automatically based on load.

Other than that, in theory you could attach the 3rd one to CPU_OPT, and it'd probably just slow down when your CPU isn't being used. I feel like putting the two top fans into one header via a splitter makes sense.
