Default H100i v2, H115i ext color effects

I don't understand the issue with the H100i v2 and H115i not having options for color effects in Corsair Link. If you can change the colors manually then you should be able to do it through a program also at least changing colors and breathing effects like the H100i v1.

What's the issue with this?

From what I understand, the cooler's LED just doesn't support it. That said, you do have those effects on the new Pro series.

My problem with it is that you can change the color in Link so there is no reason why a program can't be written to run in link and do it automatically.

So I decided to looking into this issue again and found some interesting answers. Turns out that h110i v2 and 115i v2 can do effects and change colors automatically through software but I guess Corsair has chosen to disable support for it in order to push their new line of pro series coolers. I was able to get the same effects as the V1 coolers using EVGA Flow control which proves that it is possible. I have been a long time Corsair customer but it is shady crap like this that makes me do 180s with companies. I don't like spending my money on a new product just because a company wants a new sale when my current product is fully capable of doing the same thing when the software isn't gimped. This practice is a good way to loose customers and Corsair is about to loose this one.

Yes, they deliberately removed a lighting feature from an entire range of coolers in 2015 (incidentally made by a different OEM than the 2012 predecessor it’s being compared with) so they could sell more of the model that would eventually replace it in 2018 — 3 years later. It’s so stupid, it’s actually clever.
