Default Fans setup

Hello, I recently got a H150I PRO and I do not really know where I should connect my fans. I have a 570x and i've kept the 3x120mm SP fans at the front and mounted the radiator behind them. I mounted the 3 fans included with the h150i at the top and the back of the case as out take. I connected them to a Fan hub connected to CPU_OPT and I've connected my SP fans to the 3 fan connectors of the AIO. The problem is that my 3fans connected to the hub are running at 600rpm while the fans connected to the AIO are running at 2000rpm.

Should I connect the 3 fans included with the H150i to the fans connector of the AIO even if they are not mounted on the radiator and connect the SP fans who are not PWM to the mobo?

The SP-RGB fans that come with the case are DC-controlled fans, not PWM. The cooler will only control PWM based fans.

You probably shouldn't put the PWM fans on the radiator if they aren't mounted on the radiator tho. At this point, you can get other fans or run all of your fans from the motherboard. It's not an ideal setup tho.

Can I unplug all the SP from the cooler and put them on the motherboard then, will it still run fine if there is no fan connected to the h150? Also where should I plug my fan hub, the cables of the fans that come with the AIO are too short so I can just connect them to the fan hub and not directly on the mobo. It is curently connected to CPU_OPT, should I connect it to a Chassis fan?

The fans that come with the radiator are, ideally, on the radiator. The cables would be good there. So ... place your fan hub where they'll reach? Maybe get extensions??

The cooler will run fine without fans connected as long as it does have fans blowing through it.

Just note - you are losing a pretty significant piece of functionality here - the cooler controlling the fans according to the coolant temp, which is the proper way to do it.

Yes, this will be fine.
