Default Disappointed...

So I just bought a RM750i which I got delivered this morning and have since fitted.

All went perfectly until I turned on my PC with the Corsair link cable connected.

Now 1 of my 3 case fans has disappeared from the bios and is showing as 0rpm on the Rainmeter/HWiNFO plugin I use. The fan is still spinning though. This is before I even installed the Corsair Link software.

I then installed the Corsair Link software. It is showing me 7 different fan readings and doesn't identify a single one of them. They are all just called mb fan #1, mb fan #2 etc.

It shows me 13 different temperature readings for my motherboard, also, none of these are identified at all, just named #1, #2 as above...

So, I turn off the PC and unlug the case fan that has vanished from the bios and Rainmeter and plug it into the one spare motherboard fan header I have available. Turn PC back on, now 2 case fans are gone from the bios. There are 3 plugged in, all 3 are spinning yet only 1 shows up everywhere except in Corsair Link.

All I wanted was the advertised ability to monitor the PSU information. Power usage, fan speed, efficiency etc etc. The fact that I have to hand over the monitoring of my entire PC AND control of all the fans in my PC, to the Corsair Link software just to be able to monitor the PSU is pretty mind boggling and very disappointing.

It's also hilarious that the Corsair Link software lists so many sensor outputs yet names NONE of them Except the PSU ones. Also doesn't identify any of the fans in the PC. What use is that to anybody? Hmmm Fan #1, is that chassis fan 3 or is is cpu fan 2, what is this? a lucky dip? 13 temp readings from the motherboard alone, NONE of them identified. oh look, something on my motherboard is getting quite warm at 44c, I wonder what it is, the northbridge maybe? Who knows! This is shockingly bad as far as I'm concerned.

HWiNFO which I use, identifies every single sensor in the PC, it doesn't hijack control of all my fans (which it also identifies).

So, I either hand over complete control of everything in my pc to this garbage program so i can check on my PSU information occasionally, or I uninstall Corsair Link, unplug the link cable and have everything back to normal but of course then I can't monitor my PSU at all. Really good job there Corsair, seriously.

I just want to monitor the PSU, as advertised! Really corsair, i expected better from such a (usually) good, reliable company.

So now I am about to go and remove the link cable and uninstall the software. After just having read some of the nightmare stories online about people who have done just that yet still had no control over anything until they scoured the registry painstakingly picking out the Corsair Link entries etc, I am hoping that is not the case for me. I Hope I get back my fans that vanished from the bios and also the control of fan speeds.

Really, is it so hard to let me just monitor the PSU alone?
