Can I leave the AIO fan sockets not-connected

It'll be fine, you just (obviously) won't be able to control the AIOs fans within iCUE. Just keep an eye on it and make sure the liquid temp doesn't get too toasty.

Hello!

 

I am currently in the middle of building my new pc.

 

I have a Corsair Crystal 570X case, Gigabyte z390 Aorus Pro mobo and a corsair h115i Pro AIO.

 

My question is, can I leave the two 4-pin sockets coming from the AIO unplugged?

 

I am not using the 140mm fans that came with it. The radiator with the fans don't fit up top (clearance issues with mobo). So I have it mounted behind the 3 fans upfront. I have the 3 fans connected to sys-fan connectors on the motherboard.

 

Will this work? Would I have any error messages form the AIO due to the fans not being plugged in?

 

Thank you all in advance!

you can just remove the fans altogether. there's no issue at all.

as long as enough air passes through the radiator you should be fine.

Thank you both very much! I may now continue building haha.

 

Regarding control of the fans... Is there a way to link the fan speed to the cpu's temp?

I mean, with the increase in CPU temp, will the fans speed up?

You probably have at least some kind of option in your BIOS for it. I know with the Z97X-Gaming 5 in my file server I can change how aggressive the "PWM" curve is (even though they're all voltage control) for each header, and they'll all act accordingly depending on CPU temp.

I understand, thank you very much!
