Corsair One i200 Fan problem


Recommended Posts

Hi,

My Corsair One i200, bought a year ago, has today started having some issue. The fan suddenly kicked in and the right side of the lights started flashing red. It does this continuously every 10 or so minutes and lasts a few seconds. I've checked iCue and it seems there's a temperature issue. Other than that I have no idea what's going on or how to fix it.

This while the computer is idle, only using Firefox

Any idea what is the issue and is there anything I can do.

Many thanks.

You say the fan kicked in.  But iCue is showing 0 rpm.  So is the fan running or not?

Assuming the fan is running, I assume you can rule out that the fan has failed or become disconnected. 

It sounds like iCue has stopped controlling the fan.  I've had instances with my i300 where iCue has temporarily lost control of the fan.  In most cases, the fan stopped running at all, but I've seen a couple of instances where the fan revved up to full speed.  I've always been able to fix it pretty easily. 

Here's what has worked for me:  

  • What fan profile are you running - Default, Extreme or Custom?  Try changing the profile - or setting a Custom profile if you haven't already (try 50%) - and see if the fan settles down.
  • Reboot your PC.  (I assume you've already tried that, but you never know - some folks go months without rebooting.)
  • Reboot iCue.  Quit iCue in the system tray and then reload it.  See if it picks up the fan again.
  • Uninstall/reinstall iCue.

I've never had anything other than a temporary problem with the fan and rebooting either the PC or iCue or temporarily changing the fan profile has always solved it.   Good luck.

CPU coolant over 59°C, and CPU over 70°C at idle is a bit concerning.

definitely try another fan curve or making your own as suggested. No watercooler should ever be allowed to get close to 60°C.

Thanks for the help! The fan runs on high for around 10-30 seconds (plus the red lights) and then goes quiet, but does this continuously every so often. So I assume the fan does work.

Already tried rebooting and have tried quitting iCue. Neither changed anything. I have now tried changing the fan profile as it was set on default. On a 50% profile then fan doesn't kick in and temperatures seem fairly stable. It's a good workaround as Extreme is way too loud. However, just 2 days ago it was on default and was working fine. At least for now, 50% allows me to continue to use the PC but I would feel better knowing if this is normal or something inside is defective resulting in having to use a higher fan profile, even on low load.

Glad to hear it's working. 

I run a 50% custom setting full time and it works well.  Still virtually silent and keeps things bit cooler. 

Your temps look fine, so you could try an even lower setting if the fan bothers you.

Yes, it seems to be working correctly on 50% but it's strange that it was on default fine for a year now and just suddenly had this problem. I would have thought that with hardly any load at all, the temperatures should remain low. I'm going to monitor it over the next few days and see how it goes.

Thanks again.

I sometimes set mine back to Default just to see if it works.  It almost always does, but I've seen a few times when it stays stuck at 0 even when the heat builds up.  I think it just works more reliably if it's always running - even at a very low speed.
