PowerKjeil Posted December 3, 2021 Share Posted December 3, 2021 Hey Everyone, I do have a support ticket open, but progress is slow on that so I figured I would reach out here in hopes that some one has seen my issue or can speculate as to what they think my issue may be. The first issue I ran into was the mobo complaining about a CPU fan not being detected. With some research I found using an actual fan in my CPU_FAN header, and plugging the pump into the CPU_OPT header should circumvent that issue. It did. When entering BIOS to check some fan settings, I noticed my CPU temp was climbing, quickly. Unpon closer inspection, it seemed as though the pump itself was not running, yet all of the fans were running at max speed. It also seemed weird that the led lighting for the pump was just a dim red led in the upper right corner of the pump. I ended up having to uninstall the unit, as I couldn't make it past login without auto-shutoff occurring due to the saftey settings of the thermal sensors. I reinstalled the old air cooler, and temperatures were back acceptable ranges. It seemed, to me, that the pump may have been DoA. I of course double checked all connections, and ensured they were in the proper locations. Being unfamiliar with this AIO or the iCUE software, I thought maybe I could force the pump awake via said software. I re-connected the AIO connections (not the cooling block) with my air cooler installed as well to maintain acceptable temps, and installed the software. Immediately after installation I recieved an notification from iCUE regarding a pump failure, and to contact support. A thing to note is that while the software saw the pump, it didn't register any of the 5 other fans (including the 2 for the corsair rad who's leds were locked to a dim green color). Things got even more exciting when my computer started to blue screen regularly 10-15 minutes after boot with the wonderful code: irql_not_less_or_equal. This usually occurs when a system process is unable to access a specific memory location. I took a look at perfom /rel, and holy cow. There were almost 600 critical errors for the iCUE's service Corsair.Service.CpuIdRemote64. ALL of the errors were Null Ref Exceptions, which would explain the blue screens. After uninstall of iCUE4, the blue screens ceased. In working with support, they did send me a new Commander unit, but unfortunately this did nothing for my issues. I really think this is just a dead pump, but this is where I am currently. Waiting for a response as to the next plan of attack.
