Yes it's required that's what the manual says.

Hi! I just finished my PC build with the corsair h100iGTX when I was given the messege that I had a CPU Fan error (I have plugged in the h100i GTX pump to the CPU_Fan already). Whats stranger is that it seems to be working regardless of my motherboards inability to recognize it (maximus hero VII), the corsair light shows up and my idle temperatures are at 27-28 degrees on the bios. So.. Why doesnt my mobo recognize it if i have plugged it to the correct fan header (CPU_FAN) while at the same time, it appears to be working? WHAT IS THE FAN ERROR!?

Thanks for your help!!

Maybe the mobo can't control the pump like its used to so it screams

Is the cpu fan header set to 100 % fan speed in the BIOS?

??!??!?!?!??!?!

Maybe the Motherboard tries to change the speed of the pump but the pump is fixed so its not working, just guessing

yeah but what will that solve (besides the ignoring of the fan error)? how do i know it works?

if your temps are that low its working


Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

The limit is used to signal when a fan or a pump is failing, if for example your pump fails it will drop the RPMs and your motherboard will throw a CPU error. Since you have it set to 100%, it means that it expects the fan or pump connected to that header to run to whatever RPM you have it set for in the bios. If you set it to ignore, it will ignore this error.

Hi,

 

Have you figured this issue out? I just built my rig and incountered the same error message. I fixed it by following the instructions below:

-In the Bios, go to monitoring and find the CPU FAN setting.

-Instead of AUTO switch it to PWM, meaning force PWM mode, and i set the minimum to Speed to 200RPM.

 

No error and now Corsair Link sees the fan speed and all is happy. Just to note, I'm using the Asus 97 pro wifi ac, and the corsair h100i gtx.​

 

Hope that helps.

Installed the H100i GTX with an Asus Maximus VII Ranger. Worked fine for a while, but suddenly AI Suite and Corsair Link couldnt detect the fan speeds anymore.

What Phattyhimself suggested worked like a charm.

 

I'd like to point out that the method forces CPU_FAN to PWM (i.e. 4-pin), whereas the fans and the connection are in fact 3-pin. No idea whether that's significant...
