H100I LED Color relationship to Temperature


Recommended Posts

My system runs cool so it is not a concern plus the lighting in a PC really has little attraction to me. However...

I set my temps to read F as I live in the states. In the Corsair link, it shows F but in Groups and Power, it only displays C. Not a big deal but a bug that needs to be resolved. I thought I'd see how the lights on the H100i responded. I changed the setpoint temps. No change. Blue (cold). I changed the system to read C, color on the LED in the H100i changed. Seems there is a real bug in the temp conversion part.

If I may, I suggest making temperature a sub routine. Display the converted values but use unconverted ones in the control of the item(s). This would perhaps make it simple to resolve this bug.

I keep wondering what to do in terms of °C vs. °F as the hardware needs to be programmed with °C and as a °F user it would be good to get your input.


At the moment I display whatever you have selected, but all the inputs are in °C. Do you think I need to allow the inputs in other than °C and if so what should I do when there is not a one-to-one mapping? Should 33°F be stored as 0°C or 1°C? Internally I have everything in °C and update a function pointer to display whatever is selected.


What does CL program as the reference points when you have °F selected? The °F numbers? If you exit CL and run SIV it will tell you what is there on the [Link Lights] panel.

The data should be stored as a single type value. All operations based off of that data type ©. Then a sub routine called if the data view type is selected as an alias, 'F'. This would only affect what is visually displayed.

When I toggled temps from C to F, it seems it is a valid conversion (9/5 +32) display. But I think (it seems) the converted values are being used to control things. That increases complexity as every operation you have to have separate functions, one for C, another for F.
