I can guess why the new coolers are Asetek and suspect Corsair had little option.

With it comes to CL I never get my hopes up . SIV is as I suspected and 5.03 Beta-00 now has all the code for the software solution . See http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=796244.

Corsair have specified that there are no differences between H100iV2 and H100iGTX firmware, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=832507. I expect this is incorrect, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=864594

The firmware differences are huge and even Corsair admit "Asetek hardware is...silly".
  1. CoolIT H110i + H110iGT have two and H100i + H80i have four fan controllers, all Asetek only have one.
  2. CoolIT can use any temperature source, most Asetek can only use the Cooler Temperature. AFAIK the H115i + H100iV2 + H80iV2 can use any, but only for the fan.
  3. CoolIT firmware can be updated, Asetek can't, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=793290
  4. CoolIT lights have far more functionality than the Asetek, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=861485.
  5. CoolIT reports the pump speed to CPU_FAN, Asetek reports a fan speed.
  6. I suspect the H115i/H100iV2/H80iV2 may report half the pump speed , but AFAIK Corsair have not specified this to be the situation .
  7. CoolIT use the standard Microsoft HID Device Driver, Asetek need a special Device Driver which caused a BSOD on my system, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=845182.
If Corsair were sensible they would release the CoolIT based H100iGT.

All the different 280mm coolers can be rather confusing, with luck this will help.
  1. Asetek make the H115i which replaced the older H110iGTX.
  2. CoolIT make the H110i which replaced the older H110iGT.
  3. Cooling wise all four coolers are much the same, are powered by a SATA power connector and provide a total of 2 amps for the PWM fans.
  4. Only PWM fans are supported by all four.
  5. The CoolIT coolers have two fan controllers and the Asetek ones only have one so only report one fan speed.
  6. The CoolIT coolers report the pump speed to the CPU_FAN header and the Asetek ones a fan speed, the same fan speed is reported via USB as the H110iGTX fan speed.
  7. Because Asetek coolers don't report the pump speed to the CPU fan header it's tricky to get the pump speed 'till Windows is installed which makes it tricky to know if the pump is faulty when initially building the system.
  8. I suspect the H115i may report half the pump speed , but AFAIK Corsair have not specified this to be the situation .
  9. The H115i has improved firmware over the H110iGTX, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=864594
  10. All CoolIT coolers have far better firmware than Asetek coolers, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=795986.
  11. There are far more LED control options with the CoolIT coolers, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=861485 and my post above it.
  12. I recommend the CoolIT H110i as the CoolIT firmware has more facilities than the Asetek and it reports both fan speeds. The older CoolIT H110iGT is my 2nd choice.
So basically... We've been screwed with the H110i GTX... Nice one...

This is your second post on this.

Stop. Just stop.

This is not a good idea. You will lose control of the cooler's most important function ... cooling. It will crash the driver. This is NOT a good idea.

Sorry for the '' duplicate post '' but I needed to show how disinterested the corsair devs are in regards to rgb effects on the corsair link.

It's not that they are "disinterested".

It's that they won't do something that the pump wasn't designed to do. In general, that's a bad idea. In this example, specifically, it's a really bad idea because it crashes the driver.

I really do not want ANOTHER flood of people on this forum with issues due to EVGA's RGB LED sync. Take a look ... there is a reason that this is #1 on the cooler FAQ.
