Good to know about the GTX fan controllers.

The H100i was my first venture into water cooling, but I've been thinking it is time to try my hand at building a custom loop, so I was planning to transition fan control over to 1-2 Mini Commanders. I bought one several months ago to play around with. It is in my media server (old rebuilt HP desktop) and is behaving nicely (thanks to SIV ).

Lightbulb I just wish Corsair could get the CLCC firmware bugs fixed

It's good to hear and I just wish Corsair could get the CLCC firmware bugs fixed so SIV did not need to use the work-a-rounds I needed to implement. I guess you have seen http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=137428 and I suspect if you PM Lic he will give you some tips. He was the first to use SIV to control his Custom Loop once I had added the work-a-rounds.

Default Windows 10 V10.00 Build 10586 TH2

I have just checked SIV on Windows 10 V10.00 Build 10586 TH2 and the V5.04 release runs OK, but for full ACPI reporting you need SIV 5.05 Beta-11 or later.

Default SIV 5.05 with full Windows 10 V10.00 Build 10586 TH2 support

I have now released SIV 5.05 which is needed for full Windows 10 V10.00 Build 10586 TH2 support though the V5.04 release runs OK but without the full ACPI reporting.

SIV 5.05 also adds support for HXi and RMi PSUs connected via USB.

Post A little guide for SIV to control AIO Devices and GPU fans

As a Corsair Link (CL) user I had many problems controlling my CL Hardware with the CL software, at times I felt more like a Beta Tester than an end user! While searching inside the Forum for solutions I found SIV and decided to give it a try.
I have now been using SIV since November 2014 and felt I wished to write a guide to help others get started using SIV.

Nice job! I think that is probably one of the biggest hurdles people have with SIV. There's some things in there that I'm finding valuable, even after I've had it set up and running for several months now. Thanks for the guide.

I'm trying to use SIV to control the pump speed of my H110i GT.

When I try to set up a custom curve, the pump speed defaults to its 'quiet' setting of 2300~ RPM. But when I set a single PWM figure in the bottom left corner, it works properly.

Both scenarios are shown in the attachments.

How do I properly set up a custom fan curve for my pump?

What you have setup should work, but it may take a while for the pump speed to drop after the PKG Core i7 temperature drops. The actual pump speed is controlled by the H110iGT firmware and Corsair do not publish the specification for what the firmware does .

What happens to the pump speed if you change the Feedback Temperature to H110iGT Temp 1?

Once I get back from skiing I will see what happens with my H110iGT when I set the same points.

I have just spotted this post and the issue was addressed in SIV 5.17 - Added a work around to for custom curve pump control that is needed because of H110i 2.0.00 + H110iGT 1.1.08 firmware issues.

Hey,
regarding the issue where Corsair Hydro H100i GTX does not report pump and fans RPM after resuming from sleep state (S3).

Please, look at the attached files.

Thanks.

Question SIUSBXP driver bug?

Do you have to use Device Manager and disable/enable the H100iGTX device to get to working again for all programs that report it? If so there is probably a bug in the SIUSBXP driver.

Are any I/O Errors reported on [Link Status]? If you hover the mouse over Corsair Hydro Series 7289 USB Device there will be a ToolTip.

When I tested SIV sleep support I used my H110iGT + CLCC which both use the Microsoft HID driver so I will see what happens with my H80iGT + NZXT Kraken X31 which both use the SIUSBXP driver when I get home.

Yes, this is exactly what I do.

Please see attached file. It says: 'Invalid handle' upon write command.

The handle is zero, so I expect the CreateFile() must have failed. I will see what happens with my H80iGT.

No change when using the H110i GT Temp 1 as feedback temperature.

I also noticed that if I set a single RPM figure in the bottom left corner it will not apply a value below 2150.

With my H110iGT I get as below for assorted PWM % settings. Do you get the same?

Note you need to set 255 to get 100%

I can't really help 'till I get back to my office and have access to my H110iGT.

Yes, I get virtually the same values.

And no worries, I'm in no rush, thanks for the help.
