Zotac Firestorm Necessary?

Level 3
I have the Zotac 1080ti. I was wondering if it is necessary to run the Firestorm software to have the fans run on the video card. My games stutter a bit, and read that it is best to not have monitoring software running. My video card already shut down once because the fan power connecter was not plugged all the way in, and the fans did not come on. I would prefer not to have that happen again to discover whether Firestorm is necessary.

No, I have the same card and don't have Firestorm installed. Currently using MSI afterburner, but you don't need any addition programs over the Nvidia drivers for  the card to work just fine.
