Asus Maximus VI Formula Z87 - CPU Opt fan and CPU fan

Level 7
Hello, I have question about CPU Opt connector. Is it mirrored from CPU Fan connector? (When I set speed in AISuite will be the same speed on CPU Opt?)

I have 8 fans (2x 480mm radiator), I want to split to both connectors.

Thank you.

Good! Thank you.

I have to ask.

I have a CPU cooler using a 4 pin PWM FAN in CPU header 1
I have a 3 pin fan i want to use in CPU header 2. Will there be a problem? Both fans are different speed, one is 3 pin and one is 4 pin.
I am worried that since 3 pin fan speeds are controlled by voltage and 4 pin fan speeds are controlled by RPM. I don't want anything to be damaged. Same M VI Formula
