Playing Nice With HWINFO ?

Is there ANY chance at all that a future version of iCUE may play nicely with HWINFO ?

 

HWINFO is such a useful utility to monitor pretty much everything with an OSD ingame yet every time I open it all the fans in my system have seizures.

 

I did ask the developer of HWINFO but he said he's done everything he can from his end and the ball is in your court.

I'm a fan of HWINFO as well.

What I've seen : If you disable monitoring of all of the Corsair devices in HWINFO, you can run them both. It's when HWInfo monitors Corsair devices AND Link/iCue is running that things go to Hades in a Handbasket.

As for the fix ... Corsair would need to have a public way to synchronize the application to ensure that the devices are accessed in Highlander Mode (there can be only one). They did this previously with a system mutex. They may go back to this ... I can't say for sure ... but there is an assembly in the current iCue that's called Corsair.Public and it has a class with a mutex name ... so maybe it's in the works? Hard to say.
