waldo15 Posted October 17, 2013 Share Posted October 17, 2013 Hi, I bought an H100i and also a pair of Noctuas to keep things cool. Great product the H100i is! However I am having a peculiar problem. I created a custom fan curve for the NF-F12 given that the default ones go beyond what these fans can do. The Noctuas range from 300 to 1500 RPM, though my H100i only measured them to be good up to 1350 RPM. I created a basic curve and the H100i seems to follow it once I select it, but it fails to track it properly. For example, when I start my system the CPU hovers around 40C, and I have the RPMs set to 700 for that temp. H100i sets the fans to 700 no problem. Then if I start hammering the CPU (via Prime95 or a regular game) the temps shoot to, say, 60C but the RPM stays at 700, not 1100 which is the target in my curve. Here's what I have: - The CPU temp and the Noctua fans are all grouped together in group 2, such that the CPU temp drives the fans - The dynamic curve indicator tracks the temps properly, i.e. that vertical red crossbar in the Curve is set to the proper temp but the horizontal one gets lost - I have tested that the H100i can run each individual fan at the rated speeds by setting control to Fixed RPM and entering the numbers manually. - I have tested that the CPU temp is at the correct value using read outs from CPUID HW monitor. I try not to run both Corsair Link and CPUID to avoid conflicts. - The fans are directly connected to the H100i pump using the Y splitter that came with the coolers. - the Pump reports running at the correct speed (~2200RPM) - The H100i is connected to the MB via the USB dongle. - FW version listed is 1.0.5. - After running for some time the H100i seems to loose control over the fans, so even trying to set a manual speed fails and they stay stuck at whatever value they were set. I am currently running the fans at a set RPM but I'd definitely love to have the dynamic control using Corsair Link instead of my MB fan speed control (I have an MSI board). Any help would be appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
