My Z590 FTW bios shows my CLC360 pump speed at a little over 1400rpm (1401-1410).
But Flow Control shows 2x that amount, a little over 2800. (2820-2850)
 
The pump is powered by the pump header which I have set to auto and MAX to keep the pump at max rpm and power the fans controlled by the CLC.
This is my first experience with water cooling but I think 1400 sounds right.
 
The funny thing is that AIDA64 shows both. One is "Water Pump" (1410) and the other is "Pump #1 (Krakan X-1)" (2850)  
 
Which should I trust, bios or Flow Control?

2800 RPM is about right for 100% pump speed on an AIO pump.

Thanks. That's what I needed.
Then the bios is showing half speed.

Why does the BIOS show half speed?

I have my CLC360 plugged into header PUMP_FAN1 on an MSI B550 and it shows ~1440 RPM. Before installing Flow Control, HWInfo shows the CLC as "Kraken Xxx" and correctly shows the pump RPM at ~2880 RPM. Once Flow Control is installed, assume the driver it installs takes over and it shows ~2880 RPM as well.

I wish I knew.
I thought it was just an error with my EVGA board, Z590FTW.
 
Seems weird that it can read the tach signal properly for all the fans but not the pump.
Therefore has to be something different with the CLC360 pump.
