Nostalgist92 Posted September 15, 2013 Share Posted September 15, 2013 I've noticed a lot of threads around on the net where people have been complaining that their H80i/100i Coolers aren't working when using the Corsair Commander. Recently resolved a personal friends issue where his H100i would rarely be detected by the Corsair Link software. His boot times were also affected (9-10 second boot to over 2 minutes). The Corsair pumps have 2 ports in the side. One small one to go to the Commander and another that plugs directly into a motherboard USB header. We had updated the firmware on the H100i. To do this you're asked to make sure the USB header is plugged in but not the Corsair Link cable. Before and after the firmware had been updated my friend was getting terrible boot times and crazy issues with the Corsair Link software. The fix was so simple yet so easy to overlook. I unplugged the cable that was connected to the motherboards USB header but left the Corsair Link cable connected to the Commander and voila. Everything came good after a restart or 2. I can't remember off the top of my head whether or not Corsair tells you to make sure the cable to the USB header is unplugged when using the H80i/H100i with the Corsair Commander, I only ever remember reading that to update the firmware on the Hydro coolers, the USB header needed to be plugged in but the Corsair Link cable had to be unplugged. Hope this in some way helps others that are having any kind of similar issue. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
