    No issues at all. It’ll be just fine.

    It will more than likely plug into the header near the bottom of the board. That would be my guess having dealt with a few AIOs in the past. :)

    There's nothing difficult about it mate. It has a SATA power connector for the pump and LEDs and then you connect the tacho wire to the CPU fan header. The two supplied fans connect to the pump and are controlled by the CAM software. That's as simple as it gets.

    What is a Tacho Wire? I am sure it is short for something but I don't know what

    Tacho is tachometer, measures how fast the fans and/or pump are spinning.
