What is CPU opt?

What is CPU OPT (CPU_OPT)? CPU_OPT, standing for “CPU Optional”, is mostly used when you have more than one fan on your cooler/radiator and you need someplace to plug it in. It’s basically CPU_FAN without the “not booting if nothing is connected to it” part.

What is the AIO pump?

What Is an AIO Pump? On most AIO liquid coolers, the pump is the part that you connect to the CPU. The pump is responsible for pushing the liquid through the radiator. When it comes to any liquid cooling setup, the pump is the heart of the system. This is especially true for a closed-loop system.

Why isn’t my Corsair H100i lighting up?

If your AIO cooler is not lighting up, check that all cables are attached to the cooler and plugged in. This includes the SATA power plug to your PSU and potentially a USB cable that connects to your motherboard. Some SATA power extensions included with cases also turn out to be incompatible.

Where do you plug in a Corsair CPU cooler?

You will find two ports on top of the cooling unit, where you can plug in the included fan power adapter cables.

Is the Corsair H100i v2 good?

There’s not a huge amount in it, but the general cooling performance of the new H100i Pro and the H100i v2 is ever-so-slightly worse. The idle performance with the Core i7 8700K running at stock speeds is a good few degrees centigrade higher with the Pro RGB chiller, though only a couple higher at 100% CPU load.

Can I put a fan on CPU opt?

Can I Plug A Fan Hub Into CPU OPT Or CPU FAN? Yes, you can plug fan hubs onto both the CPU FAN and CPU OPT headers, though we advise that you don’t use the CPU FAN for this in most circumstances. The CPU_FAN header should be kept just for the CPU fan/heatsink/radiator.
