Is it possible to show Elite Capellix AIO coolant temp in HWinfo?

Hello, I've searched around the forums and done some google searches and haven't been able to find any information about this.

 

Is it possible to show the temp of my h100 Elite Capellix liquid coolant in HWinfo?

 

I have looked through all the tracked sensors and can't find anything that matches. I also tried looking for Corsair Link/Asetek support in HWinfo because I read the statement from this post:

 

https://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=193953

"Also, use caution using HWInfo and iCUE together. You'll need to disable Corsair Link/Asetek support in HWInfo or you will have conflicts with iCUE."

 

But I don't see anything in HWinfo to disable.

 

 

The reason I want it there is because I use RivaTuner's OSD to monitor CPU and GPU temps and I would like be able to see the liquid temp along with or instead of the CPU processor temp.

You are somewhat caught in a catch-22 situation. HWiNFO can read the Corsair AIO's coolant temp, but if you allow it to do so, it will then get entangled with CUE trying to read the same device. This usually causes one or both programs to lock up and stop monitoring or start spitting out garbage values. You can fix this by only running HWiNFO, but then it can't get the AIO temp because the Corsair Service providing it does not run. You need to be somewhat careful with this as locking up CUE is also going to lock up your fan control on the Commander Core.

 

The only work around I can think of is to take a cheap 10K thermistor wire and run it from your motherboard t-sensor (assuming there is one) to the exhaust side of the radiator. There is a direct relationship between coolant temp and exhaust air temp and they change in step. That value could be read in HWiNFO with the monitoring of the Corsair gear disabled and still provide a viable data point. However, the easiest options is to simply disable HWiNFO monitoring of Corsair internal devices so you can run it in conjunction with CUE, then get the coolant temp value from there.

Ok that makes sense. I can still use iCUE to display the temp using colors in my machine with my lighting so I can get a good idea.

 

I just wanted to ask here before giving up on the idea. Thank you for your suggestion on the t-sensor work-around. I will look into it.

Any 10K thermistor wire with a sensor end should work. Typically these are about $5-7 USD. There might even be on in the Elite Cooler box and the Commander Core has 1 slot for a thermistor.

 

Lighting is generally not a problem between CUE and HWiNFO because it is not trying to read the lighting controllers. It does try and read your USB connected PSU, Commander Pro, AIO, and RAM.

 

The easiest thing is to disable Corsair monitoring and HWiNFO should prompt you, the same way it does regarding the Asus Embedded Controller on your MB. However, even after you do this, you might need to use the "restart service" option in CUE settings to jump start it again.
