Yes, we generally recommend CPU fan as the control header for a couple reasons. 1) something has to be on CPU fan to boot. 2) CPU fan is generally limited to CPU temp only and on Asus boards there are often hidden behavior parameters designed for safety with air towers. Quick fan reactions aren't really an asset with a case fan, so this makes it a nice place to park the H100i v2 header which doesn't need any controlling - just a constant 100%/12v signal. 3) When on CPU fan, if something were to happen to the cooler on power on, you would get an immediate BIOS CPU fan boot error letting you know something drastic went wrong. This is the same error message you get when nothing is there, as in point 1.

Remember the H100i v2 has its own internal fan controller for the radiator fans. You don't use the BIOS or AI Suite to change fan and pump speeds. That will not work out well.
