So I finally received all the goodies for a major overhaul of my rig.
New mobo, new CPU, new SSDs, new CPU cooler.
Of course I will be doing a fresh Windows 7 install.
My qwuestion, after reading several threads elsewhere, is: can I install my new H100i from the start? Will BIOS see it that there is a CPU cooler fan connected even though Corsair Link would not be installed when I first fire up the rig?
Or should I install the stock cooler first, install windows and all its updates and then install Corsair Link and the H100i?
I'm at a loss here. I've read so many conflicting reports!
Any help and advice would be very much appreciated.
