Advice regarding case cooling

Hello, hope this is the right forum section for this question. This is the gear that I am using for this:

 

Case: Carbide 330R Titanium Edition

PC AIO Cooler: Hydro H100i v2 plugged to mobo with 2 Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans

Back Fan (exhaust): Noctua NF-F12 PPC 3000 PWM connected to Commander Pro

Frontal Fans (2, intake): Noctua NF-A14 PPC 3000 PWM connected to Commander Pro

 

So before configuring the fans i have connected to the Commander Pro as the ones on the AIO are performing as I want, I would like to ask for advise on something: I am assuming that the AIO cooling performance is not affected by the intake fans as much as my videocard, should I set my fan curves on the intake fans to be tied to video card temps or my CPU?

 

Reason is the intake and exhaust fans are spinning too fast and loud for my taste (1.2k-1.6k) on quiet mode.

 

Thank you in advance.

Definitely not CPU temp. It won't make any difference for AIO cooling and although you didn't mention your CPU model, it likely will be a very jarring experience with 3000 rpm fans. No matter your CPU model, the GPU is the more dominate actor in case heat creation.

 

Whatever you decide to do, get off the presets. They are too responsive, you can't see the control points, and whether you like quiet or burning fast you can get closer to what you want by making your own curves. 50% seems to be default low for Quiet, so that isn't going to work for any high RPM fan.
