Phanteks Enthoo Luxe PWM Hub with Asus x99 Pro

The Enthoo Luxe Case Manual says to connect the 4pin PWM Hub (on the back of the case) to the CPU_FAN Header on the motherboard. However, when I do that I then have to plug my H110i GT 3pin connector into one of the 4pin CHA_FAN connections on the motherboard. With this set of connections, booting leads to a CPU Fan error screen. 

 

However, if I leave the H110i GT 3pin connector plugged into the 4pin CPU_FAN header on the motherboard, and try to plug in the 4pin PWM Hub into a CHA_FAN connection on the motherboard, then my system boots fine, BUT the LEDS, and Power button (that run off that PWM Hub) no longer work. I have the 12V Sata from the PWM plugged in to my PSU as well. 

 

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong. Please let me know if I can provide more details. Any help is greatly appreciated.

aren't you supposed to plug that H110i GT into the PWM hub?! and not on the mobo

but, if the pump of the H110i GT doesn't support variable speed you should connect it to the CPU_FAN Header and the PWN hub on some other PWM header on the mobo

you connect the fan hub into the CPU header (as it sounds you correctly did) then you plug the H100i GT into the hub. preferably the one which determines the speed of the others (which is white iirc)

The connection for the H110i GT wont fit onto the PWM Hub. (The cable I'm referring to that comes off the H110i GT is the cable that is tethered to the SATA power for the H110i GT). http://imgur.com/ifFwGUe

Also, the manual for the Corsair H110i GT says to "connect the 3-pin pump RPM connector to the CPU_FAN power header." The image seems to indicate the 3pin connector is being plugged into a mobo.

the manual will not assume that you have a hub, the 3 pin should fit in the hub as fan connectors are identical to the ones on the motherboard, regardless of whether they are 3 pin or 4 pin, they all have the plastic tab in the same location

I managed to plug in the H110i's fan header into the PWM...it doesn't look great. The issue, however remains. With the PWM's 4pin connector plugged into the mobo's CPU_FAN header, I boot into a CPU Fan Error screen. The BIOS doesnt seem to recognize the PWM when it is plugged into the CPU_FAN header. 

 

What is the solution?

Now I'm trying to bypass the PWM Hub entirely and plug the HDD LED switch and Power button switch straight into the 4pin fan headers on the mobo, but neither of them is working either. 

 

The system posts fine, so there isnt anything wrong with the mobo. Also, I had the Case's LEDs working at one point, so I don't think anything is wrong with the cord. But at this point I'm not sure what else to troubleshoot.

the reason it's not working is that the PC does not detect a fan, to let it detect a fan you NEED to plug that cable into the WHITE fan port on the hub (should be the bottom right port) that is the one that feeds back the signal and determines the power applied to the rest of the headers.
