Thumbs up SIV 5.07 Beta-22 with H80iV2 + H100iV2 + H115i Support

I have just added support for the Corsair H80iV2 + H100iV2 + H115i coolers to SIV 5.07 Beta-22, but have not tested this. If you have one of these new coolers and would like to test SIV on it please let me know.

Arrow SIV 5.07 Beta-24 with CL4 detection

If you are using CL4 then you should use SIV 5.07 Beta-24 or later which will detect if CL4 is running and automatically try to avoid CL hardware conflict.

With SIV 5.06 and earlier you need to manually specify -NOLINK if you wish to start SIV when CL4 is running.

The good news is that with CL4 there is now the CLink4Service WIN32 service so SIV can easily check if CL is active .

The bad news is that CL 4.2.0.162 does not have Global\Access_CorsairLink support .

Arrow Windows 10 RS1 Build 14251

The SIV 5.06 release controlled my CL hardware with no issues, but for full ACPI reporting SIV 5.07 Beta-26 or later is needed.

I have added AMD GPU Fan control Custom Curves and they work on my Radeon HD 3450, but I can't validate SIV on Radeon R9 200/300 series GPUs as I don't have and other AMD GPUs. If you would like to help please contact me.

I would also be interested to hear how well the latest SIV 5.07 Beta supports the new H115i + H100iV2 + H80iV2 coolers.

Thank you Ray! Is really a useful feature.

Sly Intermittent USB attached HX1200i reporting issue

I have just uploaded SIV 5.07 Beta-35 which addresses and intermittent USB attached HX1200i reporting issue.

If you have a USB attached HXi or RMi PSU which also is also intermittently reported please try Beta-35 or later to see if this resolves the issue. If would be good if you posted the outcome of your testing.

There also now seems to be a CoolIT based H110i. SIV may report it and if it doesn't I suspect it will be easy to add support.

There is a further updated Using SIV to Control Corsair Link Hardware guide attached to http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=821198

Default SIV Samsung 950 pro reporting

I did notice the one window lags when I run the cpu stress test along with occt and aida64 stress test all running at the same time but that's to be expected.

Thanks for a great alternative to link!
If you run AI Suite and any other monitoring software at the same time you are likely to get issues, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=141037.

If you post what SMART information gets reported for the Samsung 950 pro I may be able to improve things. E-mailing be the save files that would make it easier for me to adjust things assuming it's possible. See http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=788225 for how to generate them.

Some stress utilities raise their priority which means SIV get's little if any CPU time. Try increasing the SIV task priority with task manager.

How does SIV do at reporting your RAID disk SMART information? The latest Beta has even better ASUS Rampage V Extreme support than 5.06 and SIV has been rather better than CL for a long time, see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=805421.

Arrow SIV 5.07 released and impooved NVMe support

I have now released SIV 5.07 which has code to detect CL4. All of AIDA64, HWiNFO and SIV have Global\Access_CorsairLink named mutex support, but Corsair Link 4.2.0.162 does not so causes issues for all three . I feel for CL4 to fail to have this support is rather poor and Corsair should have implemented this given they have been aware of this issue since 22-Sep-2014. Because of this SIV still has to try to detect CL4 and take avoiding action .

For SIV 5.08 I am hoping to improve the NVMe drive support.

Default Mini issues

Hi Ray,
I need a little help troubleshooting some issues with a commander mini on my HTPC build. The mini was purchased by in Nov '15, but I'm just now installing it and the system is not recognizing the unit at all.
When I first plugged the unit in and powered it up, there was a slight delay, then I started getting a constant USB disconnect sound in time with a red flash on the unit. I installed CL4, but CL4 doesn't recognize the unit either. I'm not getting the disconnect sound, but now there is a very rapid flashing of the LED on the mini. I'm not seeing the unit in device manager. I've noticed the my boot times are much longer (30-45 sec) when the unit is plugged in than usual (5-8 sec).

I've attached screen shots of Device manager, main SIV screen, USB bus, & Link devices. The Link status screen is not showing. I wonder if I have a defective mini?

Thanks,
Mike

Unhappy Reuqust an RMA

Looking at the SIV screen shots no Corsair Integrated USB Bridges wre detected by Windows. The H1100i is also missing, what happened to it? On [Link Devices] I can tell two have been connected in the past. One was the H100i, but I have no way to know what the other was. It could either be the H110i via a different USB port of or the CLCC.
  1. I have never seen this on any of my 4 x CLCC and this should how happen .
  2. Again I have not seen this and to me it looks ominous .
  3. I suspect this is down to the BIOS looking for USB disks and the CLCC causing issues .
I expect there is a hardware issue with the CLCC. Check the power connection and if that looks good the I would request an RMA via https://corsair.secure.force.com/home/home.jsp and see what they say.

Good luck, Ray

Actually, this particular system has only had the CLCC connected to it, no H100i has ever been connected. I did try plugging the CLCC into several different USB ports on the motherboard to see if I could get it to be recognized.

I do have an system image that I made before I started connecting the CLCC and installing software. I could restore to that and start over, but this seems to be a different problem than any other I've had with previous Corsair Link equipment. Like you, I suspect the unit is bad. I may try a different SATA power connector on the PSU.

I did submit a ticket to Corsair and they suggested that I start CL4, go into Windows device manager, disable the USB port that the CLCC is connected to, reboot, and re-enable the port. I'm at the office right now, but I may try that when I get home. Since the CLCC is not recognized by Windows, I'm not sure which USB port to disable. I guess I could try each one in order until I get through all of them. I may try this and request an RMA if it doesn't fix anything.

I don't expect restoring the system image will make any difference at all. I would simply try the CLCC in a different PC.

I think the only things that may fix it are a different power connection or USB port, but I suspect there is a hardware issue within the CLCC.

Idea [Link Devices] now reports the USB Port and Hub

Mike, I had a ponder and have just uploaded 5.08 Beta-03 in which [Link Devices] reports the USB Port and Hub . Knowing this may help figure out what those two devices are.

I thought it was impossible to get the USB device associated with an offline HID device, but where there's a will there's a way .

Arrow Windows 10 RS1 Build 14267

The SIV 5.07 release controlled my CL hardware with no issues, but for full ACPI reporting SIV 5.08 Beta-07 or later is needed.

It took me longer than usual to enable full ACPI support as Microsoft have changed the ACPI PDO extension and NSOBJ.
