Yea I believe they are using a version of Stop Loss the military used for losing troops,

UPS's version is to stop repeated trips to redeliver if nobody is home so they just drop and run instead of putting a redeliver notice on the door.
They will never admit to it though and blame the company you bought it from as the reason they drop it,

UPS looses on redelivery attempts not the retailer
Customer looses if package is stolen or dropped at the wrong door step.

Getting to some really confusing terms :/

Assist fans and Channel fan connections
Cpu fans 2-sp140 intake are handled by the new Corsair h110i GT that connects to a sata cable not sure which port on the psu evga 1200 P2 sata2/3 ....

But the top rear fan exhaust = is this a assist fan or channel ? 1-af120
Front 2 fans intakes same deal assist or channel ? 2-af140

I'm afraid the mobo manual only uses more confusing terms than helpful ones

What mobo did you get Mike? A Sabertooth? If so the assist fans are the two small ones built into the motherboard, they provide extra airflow to assist with mobo cooling. The channel fans will be any case fans you connect to the fan headers on the motherboard.

Yep the x99 Sabertooth
ASUS SABERTOOTH X99 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com
So your saying use the channel fan connections for the case fans which there are 3
2- front
1-top rear
Mobo manual only specifies only use assist connections for assist fans and channel connections for channel fans lol

As far as the built in fans for the mobo I've only seen 1 of those buggers at the top right of the board with the X99 logo which removing the plate and adding the fan in it's place and the connection is the easy one it only fits one port in the cpu fan connections

It doesn`t matter which sata power cable you hook it to, it`s just power, power cables don`t have port numbers.

As Gav said, the assist fans are the small tiny fans and the chassis fan headers are for 120`s or 140`s.

Then there`s the cpu option fan header, I have to find out exactly what that one is for.

The specs say you have 4 chassis fan headers.

4 x Chassis Fan connector(s) (4 x 4 -pin)
5 x Assistant Fan connector(s) (5 x 4 -pin)

Why does it say 5 Assist fan headers, it only has 1 small fan doesn`t it ?

Motherboards | SABERTOOTH X99 | ASUS USA

Your lone assist fan plugs into one of these, it`s clearly marked assist fan.

Yep as far as I've seen only 1 built in fan where the X99 plate is
Take off the X99 plate and screw on the little fan without reattaching the plate.
It has it's own port that only it can connect into.

But yea very observant the OPT port on the cpu fan string of ports (top left on the mobo) is where I was thinking the h110i GT's little black single wire went to ?

Radical cooler!

Doesn't seem to be a lot of difference between Performance and Quite pump mode. Or the default fan(s) and maximum. (Two degrees - Delta or above ambient.)

No, it goes to the cpu fan header, not the optional cpu fan header.
I doubt if there is a difference, but you always hook your cpu to the cpu fan header.
All that black cable does is report the pump speed, the I link cable does everything else.

This is right out of the manual.

Ya, and there`s no real temp difference between silent, balanced and performance with the fans, so I leave them on silent
