I changed the orientation of the top fan and wired them straight to the motherboard (no idea where they were wired before, I think they were into some sort of splitter, I didn't investigate too deeply) and temperatures are noticeably different, on my HDDs at least.

I'm toying with the idea of fitting an h80i with dual fan setup in exhaust at the position of the top fan at the back. Still on the fence with that one as if I did I know I'd just have to start messing with overclocking.
Looking good mate, nice n clean/tidy

How does you set it up in Bios your "Q Fan" when using the "Corsair Link Dashboard" software? Are you gonna uninstall Asus AI Suite and set to standard (auto) the fans settings? Or only the one that will be used by Corsair software and keep Asus Ai Suite? Thanks!
AI Suit and Corsair link don't work well together mate so one or the other should be used. The H80i's fan's connect to its pump/block or you can connect them to your motherboard, not install Corsair Link and user your bios or AI Suit to control the fan's.

Thanks for your respond...I wasn't sure of Bios setting and compatibility with two "Fan Software Controller".

Shame...that's mean all Watercooling AIO with Fan/pump software management can't bear AI Suite. I was searching responds over the Net but no real answers found.

I have tried AI Suite and Corsair Link and got rid of both of them.
Never could get either one to work properly BSOD.
I use them one at a time.
Once installed they are both hard to remove completely.

Concerning AI Suite, i used mostly Fan Expert+ to regulate fans plugged onto the motherboard. In Bios they do are set in Manual setting with High/Low Rpm and Temps% setup.

I never had a single BSOD since it had been install on my machine with it.

I was on my way to buy a watercooler AIO 240 that come with Software because i was thinking i could set the fan as i wanted to work in Bios with the "Special" Soft of the branded watercooler, aka: Thermaltake Water Extreme 3.0.

It disappoints me a lot because AI Suite is quite well integrated on my machine and helps me monitoring.

No probs chap

Corsair link can be a bit buggy if you're messing with it a lot but I just set it once and forget it. +1 for never install AI Suit, it's a nightmare for bugs.

I certainly agree with all of that. The Thermaltake Water 2.0 software is worthless too.

Thought that...but does the new line Water 3.0 Performer, Pro & Extreme have an improved pump? Looks Motor speed is rated higher.

while the new Water 3.0 Performer, Pro & Extreme may have better pumps, their software is still useless for control. It tells me I don't have the cooler installed or the program won't start.won't start.
