Fans connectors to use

Level 7

Right now I have my Asus Maximus X Hero MB installed in a Fractal Design R6 Define Case. I have connected the 3 140mm fans that come with the case to the CHA_FAN1, CHA_FAN2 and CHA_FAN3 connectors, so that I can control their speed depending on how hot the PC gets.

I've now bought a couple 140mm Noctua NF-A14 PWM to keep the case cooler and a 40mm Noctua NF-A4x20 PWM that is going to be ventilating my SS2 M.2. My question is, where should I connect these 3 new fans so that I can control their speed too (through the BIOS or though FanXpert).

Can I connect them to the CPU_OPT, H_AMP and W_PUMP+ connectors? Should I change any of the case ones that I have already set up?

Thank you!

I have the same case as well and TWO 140mm Noctua NF A14 chromax on top connected via the fan controller the case included. i then have the fan controller connnected to the H_AMP connecter and i can control those fans with the BIOs. No issues:)
