Apologies, here you go.

Again an I/O Error Message:

"@ 00:07:56.174 seq 6A 5 = CreateFile( \\?\usb#vid_1b1c&pid_0c08#7289_2.0#{3c5e1462-5695-4e18-876b-f3f3d08aaf18} ) Access is denied."

On a side note the Pump CPU_FAN connector is only a 3 pin connected to a 4 pin Fan header???

Idea If I could do some checks on your system myself this would save so much time

Oops The BIOS and Manual say different things

  3. I suspect selecting PWM mode is more likely to provide the H80iV2 with the constant +12 volts it needs as in PWM mode pin-2 always get's a constant +12 volts.
  4. For good measure also set the CPU_FAN to full speed on Q-Fan tuning.
  5. If you ever update the BIOS you will probably need to do this again.
  6. You could make these changes and hope or I could do some checks first and see if I think they are needed.
  7. To setup TV access it's best to use Skype, do you have Skype and if so I will PM you my Skype name.

Hi Red-Ray, yes I have skype installed. I wont do anything in the BIOS until I've got you on Skype.

Idea molex to 3-pin cable with a yellow tachometer cable

The cable I was talking about is as below and see http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=851963

Ray, thank you for assisting me on my PC this evening.

I have gone into the BIOS & managed to set the CPU_FAN to "PWM", I set the fan speed to Turbo and set the low fan speed limit to 600 rpm (there was an option for to Ignore the low speed limit).

I wasn't able to set the CPU_FAN to full speed in the Q Fan Tunning as it kept defaulting the fan setting to disabled on Q Fan page to disabled not PWM.

I expect provided PWM mode is selected it doesn't really matter.

Do you usually leave your PC powered on? If so it would be worth leaving SIV running while you are at work and then checking/posting [Cooling Status] when you get back.

No problem Ray & thank you for the countless hours you have spent with me.

I'm off work for the next 2 days from tomorrow ( currently Wednesday morning here). I would rather test "Cooling Status" whilst I'm home if anything goes wonky.

Unfortunately for whatever reason that screenshot I took off the Cooling Status showing the low sample rates which was indicitive of a 12v power supply issue did not save (:(.

We both know what to look for so no screen shot is no big deal.

OK, ideally do as follows:
  1. Exit SIV
  2. Run SIV
  3. Check the [Cooling Status] samples are OK after 5 minutes.
  4. Run [Link Test] with a Test Limit on 1,000,000 and post the final screen shot.
  5. Check the [Cooling Status] samples are OK.
  6. It strange things happen post screen shots.
I know you would rather run the Flight Simulator, but if things go wonky while running it then this does not really help in finding the root cause of the issue.

Yup happy to do that Ray no problems.

I might actually do that this morning.

Tell me are there any "cool it" coolers left on the market?is the H110i a coolit or asetek pump?

Yes, the CoolIT H110i if you can get a 280mm cooler in your case.

Well......I'm one very happy person. I can now confirm my H80i V2 freezing issue has been resolved after many hours of help from Red-Ray.

Some issues to mention relating to the problem was the following:

1) CPUID HWmonitor failing to use the Global\CorsairLinkReadWriteGuardMutex lock.
2) The CPU_FAN header needing to be set to "PWM" mode to provide the constant +12V of power.

A very big thank you goes to Red-Ray as without his support I would have still been struggling with a freezing cooler, and I'm getting used to using the SIV software, a brilliant piece of software.

Red-Ray please see 3 screenshots attached from Start of Flight Sim, Middle of the Flight and then at the end of the Flight.

Many Thanks,

  1. Thank you for confirming your issues are resolved and when there turns out to be two different issues it often takes well over twice as long to figure out what is going on.
  2. All the H100iV2 sample counts are the same (1,780) as I would expect and your cooler control issues should be resolved.
  3. I suspect finding the CPUID HWM issue a few months ago would have taken rather longer, but now that SIV has Menu->Help->Lock Handle spotting such issues is far easier.
