Are fan curves stored on-hardware, or controlled by iCUE software?

Basically as it says on the title. I have a H150i water cooler, and can set a fan profile for it using iCUE (in my case I'm just using one of the default profiles). I want to run Linux primarily (the hope being that this will be a server box that I have a windows VM running in, but at least for now I'm just running Windows on bare metal), but I know iCUE doesn't have Linux support (yet?).

 

So - if I were to boot in to Linux, is it anybody's guess as to what'll happen? I assume the pump will still run all, but would the profiles set by iCUE in Windows be kept? Or would it be up to whatever the BIOS feels like doing?

The fan profile is saved to the device automatically when it is set. However, to make it work in a non-CUE environment, make sure you keep the sensor choice on H150i Temp (coolant temperature). That is the native sensor for the device and it can read it without software at all times. Pump will remain at the fixed speed last set, except in case of critical coolant temperature. Then it will shift to Extreme.
