  4. I like it! And I like that the site now uses a favicon, even tho a black favicon aint the best and hard to see what it actually is when fans are minimized :)

  5. Hey all, I'm a big fan of Corsair stuff I must say. I've had numerous cases and peripherals over the years, and i'm quite happy with everything. In fact on the reddit/r/corsair sub, I recently posted my new 5000x /w XD7 build. Huge amount of Corsair stuff inside the case, as well as keyboard / mouse / headset. I even picked up a Nexus yesterday for monitoring. (That I think is fantastic for what it does, for what I need.) BUT FOR THE LOVE OF ANYTHING HOLY! Please, please, please fix or enable the ability to SAVE the bl00dy HOME page and DASHBOARD layouts. EVERY time, I reboot, or even lock my workstation and come back, not only is the layout reset, but all the sensors and graphs that I have lovingly ordered to my preference, have gone back to some ordering that Icue thinks is better than me. That's it isn't, the the icue stuff is silently judging you. Also, the Multi / Single OCP settings on my ax1500i, well they just don't work.

  14. WIP on CUE 2 [Click Here to Download] Krazykid's Converter LZMA Compression [1.04 MB] Uses LZMA compression and requires 7zip or winrar to uncompress Both Files Contain the Exact Same Content. Only Difference is Compression Type. Profiles are very out of date! These can probably only be imported into CUE 1.16 and then you will have to update to CUE 2.0 and slowly up from there. I'm not even sure if there is a possible update path that will get you to iCUE. If you want to convert a profile by yourself, here's how to do it. Use a word editor like WordPad as it lines up the lines of code for you. <modelName>K70 RGB</modelName> Just change the K70 to either CGK65 or K95 or Strafe depending on your keyboard model. YOU CAN'T CONVERT FROM A K65, K70, or Strafe to K95. See Chart Below K65 -> K70 | K65 -> K95 | K65 -> Strafe K70 -> K65 | K70 -> K95 | K70 -> Strafe K95 -> K65 | K95 -> K70 | K95 -> Strafe Strafe -> K65 | Strafe -> K70 | Strafe -> K95 If you have a new RAPIDFIRE, or LUX keyboard you will need to add those to the end. The K95 profiles must have 1 mode bounded to each M key, you can still mod the .prf file so it will work for a K95 but don't ask for help. Its to much trouble. Most of these profiles were NOT by me.

  15. I put together a Haswell-E liquid cooled "supercomputer" for my brother, using Corsair Mini Commander to control various intake and exhaust fans along with the H100i fans that cool my CPU. The Mini Commander looks so good on paper, but the Corsair Link software to control it is a buggy bloated pig. 1) Corsair Link conflicts with NZXT X41 so that NZXT's CAM software can't control it (I have NZXT X41 cooling my GPU). Corsair Link seems to think it should "own" the USB device that is the NZXT X41 and try to control it. 2) If I use the H100i with data cable to Mini Commander, it is not recognized by Corsair Link. Link can only see the H100i when it is plugged in as USB device. 3) Corsair Link software has a 250MB working set footprint when running, uses more than 1% of CPU on a 5820K just to run minimized in the background, keeps the GPU engaged instead of idling when displaying the fancy fan overlay to watch temps, and cannot dial back the polling rate from default to reduce CPU overhead. Corsair OUGHT to have a tiny background service to actually control the fans (provide the CPU and GPU temps to the Mini Commander) and leave the bloated .NET UI in a separate process that only needs to be opened to customize the fan curves, etc. 4) All mini-commander fans start at 100% when system powers on, so it sounds like a shop vac and wakes up the whole house when I turn on the computer at 3am to check the weather. Please change the mini-commander firmware to have an option to slowly spool UP the fans from dead stop instead of starting them at 100% and then spooling them down. 5) Mini-commander and/or Link software do not allow fans to be shut down. I have a dozen fans in my case, and very few are needed UNTIL the CPU or GPU ramps up under full load. I don't need the fans running unless I need to cool something. Please allow me to set fan curves to idle fans off. 6) Corsair Link software does not respond well to changing which ports things are plugged into. After painstakingly setting all my fan curves and temp groups, I needed to move the Link Commander to a different internal USB port, and it left all my old configured devices as "phantom" devices in Corsair Link and created all new devices within Link with default profiles. Had to create all the custom curves and temperature groups again, and can't get rid of "phantom" devices that are grayed out. 7) There are no options within Link or Mini-commander to set the PWM rate sent to PWM fans, so some of my fans make a grinding noise at low RPM. 8) Corsair Link software does not allow setting any sort of hysteresis in custom fan curves, so if the underlying temperature changes frequently by a degree or two, you can hear the fan ramp up and down. Allowing a hysteresis of 2C on some things while 5C on CPU temp would help tremendously in preventing up/down fan speeds. 9) Corsair Link and mini-commander do not allow a fan to respond to more than a single temperature source. Should my intake fan respond to CPU temp or GPU temp? When I do video encoding the CPU is hot, but when playing games the GPU is hot, and in both cases I need more case ventilation. Too bad, pick one or the other. 10) Mini-commander requires some software to run in order to notify the mini-commander of CPU, GPU, HDD/SSD, and motherboard temperatures. Only one of the 4 temperature probes (#4 for those that are tinkering) on the mini-commander seem to be able to control fan speeds without any software running. So you can't use mini-commander without software running in background, unless you just want fans to run at a single speed, or only respond to a single temperature probe. BUT ALL IS NOT LOST! I ran across this thread while hunting for solutions short of smashing mini-commander with sledge hammer. Ray's SIV program has the ability to monitor and control Corsair mini-commander fans! And Ray even added the capability to set temperature groups (called Synthetics) so that each fan can respond to multiple temperature inputs! And on top of that, SIV has minimal system overhead, especially compared to Corsair Link. So instead of waiting for Corsair to fix Link, I am happily using mini-commander controlled with SIV. My fans spin up and down whether it is the GPU or CPU under load, and I have internal fans that spin up or down to cool RAM, VRMs, SSD, etc, if ANY of them get hot. My only wish now for Corsair now is to change the mini-commander firmware to 1)allow fans to idle to zero, 2) boot with fans at lowest speed in custom curve instead of booting at 100% fan speeds, and 3) allow setting hysteresis for custom curves to prevent unnecessary fan RPM changes. But please work with Ray to keep mini-commander working with SIV since it is far superior to Corsair Link. If you have problems or frustrations with Corsair Link, just give SIV a try. THANKS RAY!!!

  17. Hey there everyone! DevBiker from deep in the heart of Texas and I'm just starting down the path of rebuilding my rig into a Corsair 7000 series case. I've gotten my hands on the iCUE 7000X RGB in white as well as the front and top panels for the 7000D Airflow editions (also in white, though black may have been an interesting contrast). I do plan on playing around with it a bit ... to rearrange things a bit and rebuilt it several times, looking at different options. Over the next month or so - before I do the actual build - I'll be playing around with the case and measuring things and seeing how different things may or may not fit. I'm not going to go over all the marketing fluff - except for a single Obligatory Marketing Image - because y'all can read all of that stuff on all the various reviews that are out there. So with that ... this should also be a discussion. What ideas do y'all have for the 7000? I've already talked with one other forum member that was looking to put a monitor screen on the PSU window and I got some measurements for that. You'll that info in the FAQ as well (under PSU installation) I'm using the new Album feature for the FAQ; comments are enabled for each photo so you can ask questions there or here. It's best to view the Album by Caption. I like the List View, personally. Table of Contents - each link points to the first image in the 'section' . 0001: Intro, Marketing Image, in the Box 0002: Devices, including the Commander Core XT 0003: Motherboard Mounts 0004: PSU Shroud, including vertical GPU mounting 0005: PSU Installation 0006: Drive Cages and SSD Mounts 0007: Front Fans and Radiators 0008: Side Fans and Radiators 0009: Top Fans and Radiators 0010: Outer Glass and Panels (In Progress ...) Corsair 7000 Series Cases / HydroX Options : This is an ongoing list of different configurations with HydroX and the 7000 series cases. Diagrams: RGB Diagram for 7000X with 2x XR5 420mm Much thanks to the folks at Corsair as well for helping with this by answering questions and providing a LOT of goodies for this build!! Links to the 7000 Series Product Pages: iCUE 7000X RGB Tempered Glass in Black and White. 7000D AIRFLOW in Black and White. The system that will be going through this will be my main rig: Asus Zenith II Extreme ThreadRipper 3970X with HydroX XC9 8x 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB @ 3466Ghz nVidia RTX 3090 Founder's Edition with HydroX XG7 (I paid MSRP for this!) MP600 1TB (System Drive) MP600 1TB [This will be replaced with an MP600 Core 2TB] MP510 960GB [This will be replaced with an MP600 Core 2TB] Sabrent Rocket Q 2TB Seagate Ironwolf NAS 10TB I have lots of RGB in there (of course) but all that's likely going to be replaced. I've even got 4 LL140 RGB fans in there from way back just after the LLs actually launched ... and they are still going. Those things have seen some use. On of them even has an RGB cable that I had to cut and re-crimp because I snipped the wire. I've got Commander Pros, Lighting Node Pros and Fan Hubs that are around 4 years old or so ... still going. Of course there's gonna be a ton of Corsair in here because that's just how I roll. None of y'all are going to be surprised by that in the least.

If you have one bad fan (LED's) it could possibly effect the following fans on the RGB Fan LED Hub, Bad fan in port 1? fans on the following ports may not light up correctly. . Not Officially supported but there is no reason why you can not use Fan header Splitter cables on the Commander Pro (note there is a 1A limitation per fan header and a 4.5A limitation for the entire unit (including it's MCU and any Corsair RGB Strips you have attached) and I recommend no more than 2 Fans on any one Channel (note, seen plenty of issues when trying to use triple PWM splitters or more). . iCue/LINK Is also a Hardware Monitoring Program. It's not recommended you run other monitoring programs along side it. To do so risks Software Conflicts. . When encountering problems like coolers not being detected by iCue/LINK, it's worth heading to Device Manager/Universal Serial Bus Controllers and look for the Corsair USBXp driver, Even if it is present and enabled, disable/re-enable and see if that helps.

  20. Since the problem is known, I would have expected the support to react faster. I have received the confirmation mail, but in my account it says that I do not have a support ticket. Apparently the service is as bad as the software they deliver. If the headphones don't work again on Tuesday, I will send them back. Unfortunately, I already have to give a bad rating because the description makes everyone fall into the trap, even if the headphones are actually good.

  21. Oh my God, I stepped in the same shit. I hope the German support is faster than the forum. I was able to use the headset for 20 minutes. After so much research, I guess I chose the wrong manufacturer after all. With any other manufacturer, you can download the FW yourself, here it seems to be a company secret. I hope for a quick solution, otherwise they will go straight back to the dealer with a corresponding evaluation.

  22. remember the PSU rating is always given just for the 12V rail(s). If you get a 850W, it's 850W on 12V. You'll still have on top of that the usual 25A at 5V (125W). So you don't really "need" to calculate anything, unless you're working with a massive case with 20 or 30 QL fans that will slam the 5V rail. as for the 12V power draw, fans will never reach their max rating unless you run them at full speed and block them all at once. The pump will be the only real power draw since it's constantly under load, but even then.. only at max speed will you see something close to 30W 🙂

  31. As the title states I will be showing you how to sync Aura devices with ICUE. Some things before we start Since ASUS recently updated and released their new SDK i will divide this guide into two sections: The first section being the old ASUS Aura version which has very limited device support and stability but has the ability to get and set the colors of select Aura devices. You could use this to use the music mode in Aura and send the colors to corsair devices or you could use ICUE effects on Aura devices. The second section being the new ASUS Aura version which supports all Aura devices at the cost of only setting the colors. With all Aura devices I mean all Aura compatible gear should work. If you don't mind only being able to set ICUE effects on your Aura devices then the second section is the preferred method. Section 1: Old ASUS Aura version Note 1: This might won't work on X370 or B350 but will work on X470 and B450. Note 2: This does not work with Asus Strix 20xx cards as they do not show up in the older aura version. Note 3: This only works with Asus Motherboards / GPUs for now. Gigabyte and MSI support is expected somewhere in the near future. Note 4: Your device must be supported by the SDK. If you need any further assistance on setting this up feel free to ask us over at discord. https://discordapp.com/invite/Gr6f9XZ Ok so lets begin. First of all, you will need Asus Aura 1.06.17. Using this with the newer versions might crash Aura. But that is not as bad as it sounds as you will be uninstalling it anyway :). You will need to use a program called CCleaner to do the job. Most of the times a normal windows uninstall will not work as Asus doesn't uninstall everything for some reason. Just note that when uninstalling to both uninstall Asus Aura and Aura Service. You can easily check the Asus Aura version in Windows 10 when going into Settings and then Apps and then going on Asus Aura. This is how it would look. After you have installed Asus Aura and it starts up you should make sure it works by selecting the rainbow effect (or any of the ones below that). Next you should head over to https://fanman03.ml/?page=dwn and download the latest Jacknet Sync program. It is an installer and will go through like any regular program installer. When that is done you should have a new desktop icon. Double click it like a regular program and it should open. You should start with clicking on New LED Group. It should look similar to this after that. Depending on which way you want to sync your LEDs (Asus aura -> ICUE devices or ICUE -> Asus Aura devices; does not work on all boards like for example x470 or z390) you want to select the host LED device in MasterLED. For Asus -> ICUE select "Motherboard X". For ICUE -> Asus select a Corsair device. And for the synchronized LEDs you should drag over the LEDs you want do sync to the MasterLED. (use shift select for easier dragging) Make sure to not add devices that are synced internally already. Example you have Corsair in the Master LED tab and add a or the same device to the synchronized tab. It will cause lag since it is getting and setting the color at the same time. Avoid that. I went for the Asus -> ICUE route here so this is how it looks for me. If you are going for the ICUE -> Asus route it should look like this. Section 2: New ASUS Aura version Note: Only bugs we found so far are the "Desktop" which shows up. It has no documented function so for now it is "just there". Ignore it for now. Another bug is that the Strix x299e board is bugging out a bit. It works fine except for anything connected to either of the 12v RGB headers. 5v are unaffected by this. Note 2: When launching Jacknet sync it may take longer since Aura takes long to add the devices in. Following this section will only require on of the newer ASUS Aura versions. Latest is recommended by ASUS but if your Aura works and is older then 1.06.17 it should still work. 1.07.xx is still recommended though. After making sure you have a working Aura install you can start by installing Jacknet sync. After you open it it may take a while but it should pop up eventually. Head over to the settings tab first and make sure your Aura devices are listed. Now head over to the LED Groups tab and create a new LED Group. As Master LED you want to select a Corsair LED. As for the Aura devices you want to drag them over. A big help can be SHIFT-Selection.:sunglasse Once everything is dragged over it should start syncing the LEDs right a way. You can now select an effect in ICUE and it will mirror the colour of the LED you selected to the Aura devices. Ignore the other groups for now. Side Note: Using too many Asus Addressable LEDs can cause the mirrored effects to lag a lot and use lots of CPU time. Small info for the end I hope this small guide has made your RGB experience more immersive. Thank you for your patience and thank you for reading. I also made a little "tutorial" to this on YouTube. This was using RGBSync+ which is from one of the developers. It is a proof of concept. [ame] [/ame] If you need any help or if you have any questions feel free to ask. As i am not always online and only check the forum once in a while feel free to join the discord server. Lots of people can help you there if you are stuck and you can message the developers of this as well (please no unnecessary pinging).

  32. The Lighting Node Core is just the RGB power and controller. The original poster is also looking for CUE based fan speed control as well. To do that you need at least 1 Corsair fan controller (Commander Pro or Core). It is also possible to offload some of the PWM control to a powered fan hub running from 1 of the PWM headers, but you still need at least 1 Corsair fan controller. There are other reasons to use the Commander Pro, especially if you need it's RGB channels for strips or other devices. The "Core" controllers can only do fans.

  33. The integrated circuit on the pump head may not be sending out a frequency that the Be Quiet fans can recognize (assuming you have the Be Quiet fans plugged into the three PWM headers that come out of the pump head). Every PWM fan is manufactured to accept a range of frequencies (the duty cycle) and the Corsair pump head may not be sending the correct square sine wave to the Be Quiet fans. It has been a long time since I looked the electrical signaling of a PWM fan but you may have to change back to the Corsair fans or choose a different brand.

  34. Before posting with cooler issues, especially questions about CPU temperature, please include the following information in your post: What CPU and is it overclocked? What is the max vCore (in Link/iCue, this is "vCPU")? What is the coolant temperature? How quickly does the coolant ramp up and how quickly does it cool down? What is the ambient temperature? Is the cooler intake or exhaust? What GPU are you using? (Hint: Fill out your system details fully.) How are you testing temperatures? And please take a look through this FAQ ... A. General Cooler FAQ: This post has answers to common questions about coolers that we've seen here on the forum. Do you have additional questions? Feel free to start a new thread! A1. My cooler used to show up in Link/iCue but suddenly it’s gone! What happened? Go to Windows Device Manager. Expand “Universal Serial Bus controllers” and look for “Corsair USBXp Driver”. If it’s disabled, enable it. If it’s enabled, disable it and then re-enabled it. This resolves the issue the vast majority of the time. Also, if you are running EVGA Precision XOC, disable the RGB sync feature or - better yet - just make sure that you are on the current version. We’ve had several reports from users that are using this particular tool that it conflicts with Link (badly) and attempts to take over control of the cooler’s RGB features, blocking Link from accessing the cooler and possibly causing driver issues. Note that this is only true of older versions; current versions of XOC have fixed this. Note that other monitoring tools that connect to the Corsair coolers can also cause issues. In most cases, it is possible to disable them from monitoring your Corsair cooler or to shut down iCUE if you need to do monitoring with other tools. HWInfo is a common culprit and it can be disabled in the Safety section of the settings. Just uncheck "CorsairLink and Asetek Support" Finally, check in your BIOS and make sure that both "Legacy USB Support" and "XHCI Handoff" are enabled. We've seen several users where this has resolved issues with device detection. ------------------------------ A2. I have a custom fan curve but I don’t want to/can’t run Link/iCue all time. Can I have my custom fan curve or desired settings while Link isn’t running? Yes, with most of the Link/iCUE capable coolers, you can do this. For Link: Adjust your desired settings in Link and then go to “Options” … “Devices”. In the dialog, look for your cooler. If it has a hyperlink under it to “Use current settings as default”, click it and your current, custom settings will be written to the cooler. This includes fan curves, pump speed and LED color. For iCue: Set your Performance settings for the Pump. Click the hamburger menu next to "Profiles" and click the icon that looks like an SD-card. It will be labelled "Save Static Lighting and Performance to the Device". ------------------------------ A3. What temperature should be used to control the fan speeds? The temperature from your cooler is the ideal temperature to control the speed of your fans. With liquid coolers, the CPU is cooled by the liquid (via the cold plate). The fans blow cool air through the radiator in order to cool the liquid coolant, not the CPU. As the liquid coolant has a higher heat capacity than air or the materials used for your CPU, it will both warm up and cool down more slowly. This will keep your fans at a reasonable speed and prevent spikes in the fan speed as well. Finally, the default fan curves include with Link are designed to work best with the cooler as the temperature source. If you do not have your fans connected to the cooler's fan controller, CPU temperature can also be used. This, however, is subject to a greater deal of variation and isn't always directly indicative of coolant temperature. If you are using a Commander Pro or your motherboard has a connection for an external temperature sensor, you can place it in the exhaust of your cooler and use that to control your fan speed as this would be directly related to the coolant temperature. ------------------------------ A4. Should I connect the fans to the cooler, the motherboard or a Commander Pro? Ideally, you should have the fans connected to the cooler itself. The cooler has a integrated fan controller that will control the fans based on the coolant temperature, even if Link or iCue isn't running. As discussed above, the coolant is the best and most appropriate temperature to use for fan control. If you have a Commander Pro, you can create a fan curve based on the cooler temperature. However this fan curve will require software (Link or iCue) to run; when this software is not active, the fans will run at 100%. Again, as mentioned above, an alternative is to have one of the Commander Pro's thermistors in the exhaust air flow. On my system, the radiator exhaust is pretty reliably 0.5C above the reported H115i PRO's temperature. If you connect your cooler's fans to the motherboard, you only have the CPU temperature to use as a basis for fan speed control. As mentioned above, this is not ideal for a number of reasons. ------------------------------ A5. I want to replace the stock fans. What fans should I use? You can use any 4-pin PWM fan. DC-controlled (3-pin) fans cannot be controlled from the Corsair AIO liquid coolers and will run at full speed all the time when plugged in to the cooler’s fan headers. The ML fans are highly recommended for radiator use but the HD and LL series of fans will also work well (with a little more noise and higher fan speeds) and they look fantastic in a push/pull configuration. ------------------------------ A6. I want to replace my stock fans with ML-RGB fans but they don’t perform as well as the original ML-PRO series of fans. What’s up with that? The ML-RGB fans will do an excellent job cooling your radiator. Over a certain fan speed, there are diminishing returns when it comes to fan/radiator cooling performance. The performance spec difference between the ML-RGB fans and the ML-PRO fans is due solely to the higher RPM supported by the ML-PRO fans. That said, when using ML-PRO fans on an H100i V2, I’ve limited them to the same maximum speed as the ML-RGB fans (1600 RPM) and noticed little performance difference (a little less than 1C in coolant temperature) with significantly less noise. ------------------------------ A7. My pump is powered by a SATA power connection. Do you need to plug in the fan header? If your pump is powered by a SATA power connection, the pump does not need to be plugged into a fan header for proper operation. The fan header connection on your pump is there to provide a tach signal to the CPU_FAN header so that you don't get a CPU fan warning on boot. Because of this, this should only be plugged in to the CPU_FAN header. This includes the new PRO series coolers as well as some of the previous generation coolers. ------------------------------ A8. Should I use push or pull for my fan configuration? It doesn’t matter. Either will work equally well; there is no difference. One thing to consider, however: if your fans are configured as pull, it’s easier to clean the radiator of any built-up dust. ------------------------------ A9. What about push/pull? Push/pull can give you good cooling at lower fan speeds, resulting in a quieter system but only if both fans are balanced. If they are not, it’s possible that they could interfere with each other. And, in most cases, it's not necessary. ------------------------------ A10. Can I power all of the fans from the cooler in a push/pull scenario using splitters? It depends. If your cooler is powered from the fan header, no. You do not have enough current to adequately power more than 2 fans. If your cooler is SATA powered, you may be able to. You will have a 2A limit on the current used by the pump and the fans. Of those 2 amps, the cooler will need up to 450mA (0.45A). So if your push/pull set up is less then 1.55A, you should be good to go. ------------------------------ A11. I have my cooler plugged into the CPU_FAN header and I’m seeing some really crazy fan speed readings for CPU_FAN. What’s up with that? Most Corsair coolers report RPMs to the CPU_FAN header equal to approximately ½ of the fan speed. This prevents a CPU Fan warning from your BIOS when booting but and can give you an approximate speed of your pump if you aren’t running Link but otherwise it’s nothing to be concerned about. Note that the new Pro series coolers (H150i Pro and H115i Pro) report actual pump speed on the CPU_FAN header. ------------------------------ A12. My temperature is too high! What’s going on? This is a tough one as there could be a number of issues. First, keep in mind that occasional spikes into the 70’s or low 80’s is not uncommon, especially with a stock Intel processor running a stress test. This is primarily due to the poor quality thermal interface material (TIM) that Intel uses in current processors. Second, take a look at the voltage that your CPU is using (vCore). In Link and iCue, this is listed as VCPU. Other monitoring tools may list it as VCore or something similar. A stock Intel CPU will have a vCore of 1.2V. Various motherboard manufacturers have default settings on their motherboards that, by default, overclock processors with auto voltage settings, even if you didn’t set any overclocking settings yourself. (For example, Asus Multi-Core Enhancements is on by default and is technically an overclock). Higher voltages will lead to higher temperatures. We’ve seen several reports from users that have seen voltages greater than 1.4V using the default settings on their motherboard. Such voltage will definitely cause heat issues and may shorten the life of your processor. Poor mounting can also cause increased temperatures. Take some time to examine your mounting and make sure that the cooler is tight against the processor. Also check the standoffs and make sure that they are fully screwed into the baseplate. Note that the baseplate may be loose against the back of the motherboard when the cooler isn’t mounted; this is fine as long as it is tight once the cooler is mounted on the CPU. From there, other issues may be environmental, particularly if you see both your CPU temperatures and your coolant temperatures increasing significantly while gaming. This may be due to the thermal environment in your case, particularly if your cooler is set as exhaust. GPUs, while under load, generate a lot of heat. If this heat isn’t properly managed, it can cause systems to heat up significantly. If the air that is going through the radiator is warm, the coolant won’t be able to get cool. If the air blowing through the radiator is warmer than the coolant, it will actually increase your temperatures. In this case, you need to examine your airflow to ensure a steady supply of cool air to your radiator. We've had several users with heat issues directly related to poor airflow. Finally, there is always the possibility of a pump failure. ------------------------------ A13. How do I know if my pump failed? There are a couple of key indications of pump failure. However, if you have a cooler that is powered from the 3-pin CPU fan header, make sure to review the section regarding powering the header before assuming that you have a failed pump. Improperly powered pump will often “appear” to be failed when, in fact, they simply aren’t getting enough power. The CPU temperature immediately increases to 90+C, even while in the BIOS. The pump head feels warm while the hoses going to the radiator are cool. Or one hose is significantly and noticeable warmer than the other one. The CPU Fan RPM reads 0 when the 3-pin header is plugged in to the CPU_FAN connector. ------------------------------ A14. What do I do if my pump has failed? Go to the Support Ticket System and open up an support ticket to begin the process of an RMA. Make sure that you have a copy of your original receipt; this is required for any RMA. Corsair Support may suggest some troubleshooting steps to attempt to help you get up and running. Do not attempt to repair the cooler yourself or take it apart; this will immediately void your warranty. ------------------------------ A15. I just got one of those new cool PRO series coolers (H100i PRO/H115i PRO/H150i PRO) and I went to update the firmware ... and then it said it failed to load the firmware update. Help! This is not an error. This is just a message that is displayed when no firmware was found for the cooler at all. The firmware that this cooler ships with is the most recent and updated firmware. The message really should read: "No firmware was found for your device." Note that this is also true for the Vengeance PRO RGB RAM. ------------------------------ A16. I'm installing my cooler and I'm concerned about the amount of play/wiggle between the backplate and the motherboard. Is this a cause for concern? No, this is completely normal; there will be some amount of play between the backplate and the cooler. As you tighten the cooler down, this will go away. If there is play afterwards, then it's possible that you installed the wrong standoffs. Do not, as some have suggested, add additional washers or spacers to the backplate! ------------------------------ A17. What's the best fan curve for my AIO cooler? While the built-in, default curves certainly work, they are often less than ideal and aren't always optimized for your environment. A custom fan curve, based on your environmental conditions (room/ambient and case temperature are the dominant factors) and system, works best for most users and allows you to balance cooling performance with noise. To create your custom curve: Boot up your computer and let it sit idle on the desktop or doing light work for 10-15 minutes. This is your baseline coolant temperature. You should set a fan speed that is quiet and non-intrusive for that temperature. For most people that is probably between 800-1000 rpm on a 120mm fan, but it is your choice. At idle, an extra +2C is irrelevant. Leave yourself some ambient temp wiggle room and start a slow climb about 3C further down the line. You don't want the fans to kick up because it is +1C warmer in your room today. You can expand this as needed. This also can be a bit tricky if you have one of those rooms that is cool 18C in the morning, but 27C in the afternoon. For that, you may need a "AM" and "PM" curve. Boost the fan speed up to a tolerable level around the +6C mark. This is generally where most people top out for CPU max loads and general multipurpose loads. If you have a lot of GPU heat in a small case, you are likely to see higher numbers when under GPU load and should adjust accordingly. Regardless, find the maximum coolant temperature you normally see during real use and set the fans to the highest level you are willing to endure. Set a max RPM blast about +5-7C further down from the highest temp you have seen. This serves as a warning system in case things are out of balance. You will most certainly hear the fans before you notice the coolant temp is abnormally high. Shamelessly stolen from @c-attack. A18. What's the relationship between the coolant temperature and the CPU temperature? The relationship between coolant temperature and CPU temps is this: Coolant temperature is the minimum possible CPU temperature when the Vcore is at 0.0 volts. You won't ever be at 0 volts except when shutdown, so in practical terms you will always see idle CPU temps just a bit above the coolant temp even when using C-states, EIST, and other power saving features. Turn all those off and the difference will increase. +1C coolant temp = +1C CPU temp. Every time you add 1C to the coolant temperature, you raise that basis/lowest possible CPU temp by 1C as well. A typical 100% CPU load for the 8700K is going to be +4-6C, depending on CPU settings. That is not a lot in comparison to the voltage part of the the total CPU temp (typically +30-50C). Fans help reduce coolant temperature, not the +30C from the voltage. So even with maximum fan speed, you likely can only reduce your CPU temp by a few degrees. While this seems detrimental, it is not. An air tower is bound by the same rules, but has a much smaller capacity to hold heat. It will suffer a greater penalty when faced with the same load. In your case, the "penalty" is the coolant temperature rise and that is small. Typically most people see coolant temp rises of +4-6C for CPU only loads or general mixed use. Gaming or other max GPU loads often give the appearance of more. Some people will see as much as +10C while gaming with large watt GPUs, although it has nothing to do with CPU load or efficiency. When you heat up the case with the GPU waste heat, you raise the local environment temperature. Only 3-4C of the gaming temp might be from load. The rest is because you raise the case temp by +6C and that's the final rule.... Minimum coolant temperature is case ambient temp in that specific location. Not surprising, you can't make the liquid in the cooler colder than the room or case temp. Most people will see coolant temps of +4-7C above their room temp and pretty much exactly what the local case temp is at the radiator mount location. Some place are worse than others. Shamelessly stolen from @c-attack ... again ------------------------------ B. Fan Header Powered Coolers FAQ: This section is specific to those Corsair coolers that are powered by the fan header using a 3-pin connector. This includes the following coolers: H100i V2 H105 H90 H80i V2 H75 H55 This does not include the Pro, Platinum, or Elite series coolers. If your cooler has a USB power connection, you can skip this section completely! B1. My motherboard has an AIO_PUMP fan header. Can I use that? You may but you’ll need to disable the CPU Fan speed warning in your BIOS. The AIO_PUMP headers are standard fan headers that are set, by default to 100%/12V mode. Because of this, they do work well for these coolers. However, using the CPU_FAN header will give you a warning in the event of a total pump failure so this is the recommended installation option. ------------------------------ B2. My AIO isn’t working correctly First, check that the pump is powered correctly. These coolers get all of their power from the fan header and require a full 12V at all times. (See http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=168801). In most cases, the default motherboard settings will attempt to control the speed of the pump as though it were a fan based on CPU temperature … and as a 3-pin, DC-controlled fan. This will reduce the voltage supplied to your cooler during idle periods, resulting in a malfunctioning cooler and possible long-term damage resulting in early pump failure. How you set this header to full speed varies widely by motherboard manufacturer so consult your motherboard manual for the best way to do this. You may ask on the forum about specific manufacturers and if a user has that motherboard or is familiar with that manufacturer’s BIOS, they may be able to give you specific guidance on how to do this but it is not guaranteed. Some symptoms that indicate that your cooler is not being powered correctly: The cooler is not recognized by Link Fan speeds are 0 RPM even though the fans are plugged into the cooler Pump speeds are low. In “Quiet” mode, the pump speed should be around 1900 RPM. In “Performance” mode, this will be around 2900 RPM. Pump speeds vary with CPU temperature. The CPU_FAN header defaults to using CPU temperature for fan speed control. This will actually increase/decrease the voltage supplied to the pump based on the CPU temperature, resulting in variable pump speeds. When powered correctly, the pump speeds do not vary significantly. Cooler LED does not turn on ------------------------------ B3. But if I set my CPU_FAN header to 100%, the fans are going to be LOUD! No, they won't. The CPU_FAN header setting doesn't control the fan speed. The fan speed is controlled by a fan controller that's built into the pump. If you don't set the fan header to 100%, the pump won't get the full voltage that it requires to operate properly. In that case, it's very likely that the fans will be quiet ... because they won't have enough power to spin at all! So please, set that fan header to 100% power and then you can control the fan speeds through Link. ------------------------------ Questions about RGB and how to get your bling on?

  35. So I bought one of these back in Feb I believe when they were rather new on the market, seemed to be working ok for a while now but in the last week I noticed my idle temps were creeping up, also noticed my fans running a lot louder under a couple games so yesterday I just ran some stress tests that I had run when I installed the thing. I have my 5960X OC to 4.125 nothing super high. Under AIDA64 and prime95 mixed test it used to hit like mid 70's max temp and at idle in the mid 30's. Now some cores are hitting a 100 which I quickly turned off the stress test when I saw this and idle is in the mid 40's. Water temp is 5deg higher than I remember it from before at least and also doesn't cool down very well at all at idle. Its like once it heats up it doesn't cool down much. Verified fans are running perfectly and there is no dust in the radiator fins. Corsairlink says the pump is running at 3100 rpm on high which it used to run at 2900 at high. When I check the hoses only one of them his hot the other is completely cool and on the radiator where the hot hose connects its rather hot at the connection point but the other hose is completely cool at the connection point. So its almost like the water isn't circulating like it should even though it is showing the 3100 rpm. Possibly may not be circulating at all or at a very low rate. Thoughts/opinions are appreciated. I think I need to RMA this.

  36. Hey Guys, lately I implemented an Ambilight-Layer for Artemis. Since all the capture-logic and stuff could easily transfered, I decided to create a small standalone application providing only this ambilight-feature as a CUE.NET-example. It's nothing too fancy in terms of UI or error-handling but I thought if someone is interested in stuff like this it might be worth posting it here. The capture is done by reading the front-buffer of the graphic card, so it works for everything on your primary-screen (windowed-games, movies, idling on the desktop, etc.) not bypassing the front-buffer (a lot of games do this in fullscreen mode). A note about CPU-usage: 1920x1080 @ 20FPS update rate uses 1-2% on my system (i7 2600K) with default settings. But if you're using higher resolutions or to high settings you might completely eat your CPU. If you run into performance-issues try reducing the capture-rate (down to 10 looks quite good, 5 is bearable), increasing downsampling (4K resolution should use 8 or more) or reducing the mirrored amount. Usage: After unpacking the zip just start the exe (.NET 4.0 or newer has to be installed) and you'll have a new system-tray-icon. Clicking this icon will open a simple configuration-window (settings are automatically stored). EDIT: Updated to V1.0.1 - Fixed calculation-error in Mirror-Mode - Added Min-Lightness-Setting EDIT: Updated to V1.0.1.1 - Added Gamma-Setting to allow stronger colors without preventing full black keys EDIT: Updated to V1.0.1.2 - Updated CUE.NET to support the K95 Platinum lightbar EDIT: Updated to V1.0.1.3 - Fixed an issue with DPI-scaled systems Download: http://cue.wyrez.org/KeyboardAmbilight.zip (or the attachment of this post) Source: https://github.com/DarthAffe/CUE.NET/tree/master/Examples/Ambilight/Example_Ambilight_full Demo-Video (using aggressive settings with high update-rates and no smoothing): [ame] [/ame]KeyboardAmbilight.zip

  37. Finally! After than two years and more passed to make the beta tester for a product that it had to work from start, finally I can control ALL my Corsair hardware so as it is ideated, planned, builded and sold from the same Corsair. RAY=SIV THANK YOU!!! in order to have connected in few months SIV with your Corsair hardware and being successful in so little time to make that all run perfectly! (version 4.52 beta 17). Any fan that I connect (are ended the times of “not compatible” fans) and, with any sensor in my Motherboard or GPUs or connected hardware I want (even are ended the times of “firmware” problems and this is indeed exceptional SIV, really!) and is present in my system is perfectly under control, and I say it with conscience and data to anyone wants. It almost comes me to cry for the happiness! I want to advise to all Corsair Link Customers , with or without CL problems, to try at least once and to understand what I mean. It's fantastic! Trusted, is fantastic! Thanks still Corsair and SIV. I hope that you can continue together for this new road, for all of us Corsair Customers, than as me have paid hardware and software and want to have a system under control in any time. With SIV by now from months I have my system ALWAYS (really always and in overclocking underwater sessions) perfectly under control (no blinking red ghost...I remember), to every increase of temperature the system answer immediately giving me information and I can see the set up running and change. Exactly as it would have to do Corsair Link, but not yet do. I do not have more the stressfull than to wait for a release of Corsair Link that affords to my system to make what it would have to make but it does not make. But by now it does not interest me more! I have already my system under control. I can even plan to buy other Corsair hardware and to hold also this under control without problem! This is INCREDIBLE after two beta tester years with Corsair Link, truly INCREDIBLE! I do not have doubts on the Ray/SIV abilities and on those of Corsair engineers or who is planning and doing this software. Sincerely and now simply it would like me to see SIV within Corsair, should be a USEFUL thing for all. Thanks for the attention, and still, THANKS SIV. A Corsair user, once again, but thanks to SIV. Note: please don't run CL together with SIV, at today CL don't have the mutex added to run without problem with other controllers. My Link devices connected Quite system Running game

  38. I'm at my wits end, I've read all over this forum how easy it should be to fix these issues. We paid for your products and deserve answers on these issues and when they're going to be addressed. I doubt you money thieving turds will even read this, but I'm posting it anyway. 1. Corsair Link Software Update Version 4.5.0.55 does NOT control the LED's on both sticks of my Vengeance ram, nor has previous versions. It's mind boggling to even think why on earth you would set the default state of this ram as "blinking". Even more mind boggling that you claim to have fixed it with this latest release of the Corsair Link software, and it is still not fixed. 2. Corsair Link Software Update Version 4.5.0.55 does NOT read the temperature for my Kaby Lake CPU, thereby not able to adjust fan speeds based on such readings. It has been stated ad-nauseam by another forum member here how to fix this and how easy it is to fix. Why does your team not take swift action to do so? I've submitted a support ticket, and I'm sure I'll get a cookie cutter bullcrap response that does nothing to solve the problem. I cannot and will not recommend to any of my friends a Corsair product at this time because you guys simply can't seem to get the software aspect of your products correct. You continually ignore input from other people who scream at the top of their lungs about how easy it is to fix these problems and actually take the time to show you the technical details on how to fix them. Your products look great inside of my PC, and I even have a keyboard and headset from your company that thankfully work as intended. Get your damn act together. People shouldn't have to spend their money and cross their fingers that the product will work.

  40. I've stopped using Corsair Link and moved to SIV. For me, the Link software has become pretty bloatware and if it wasn't SIV I would be moving away from the Corsair product line(s). SIV is lightweight, stable - and I now prefer the UI. The ability to edit configuration and monitor sensor information is second to none. The ability to create "synthetic" monitors that can then be used to tune fans is a feature that I could no longer live without on my configurations. Plus, Ray listens to feedback from the users of his product and makes changes based on their feedback. Software updates are regular too. If you've not tried SIV yet, give it a go. It is worth it. Oh, and Ray is a top bloke too.

  41. Hi All, I have joined to the group using SIV to control my cooling inside my "black box" :) First of all I would like to say to Ray a big Thank You! Before the switch I was using Expert Tool for my GPU control, CL to control the H100i GTX. Now using only one, SIV. Now running V5.07 Beta-15, Ray has done some development step by step during last days ... - added my board and fine tuned reported data to get real data - than some GPU fan control tests begin .... and in the end Ray added a complete fan control with 6 curve points! (this is where I get rid of Xpert tool :)) - CL and Xpert Tool is not needed anymore (to run) - SIV can´t control/set the LED of the H100i GTX, so, run once CL set up Your desired LED values, quit CL (the LED configuration remains, You don´t need CL for itto work after setup) and thats all In the end, I´m happy with SIV, runs well, all data read always reliable, setup some very nice fan and pump control points (system really quiet) ... and I´m really looking forward when the commander mini will be available in Europe for purchase (would like to add there my case fans to be controlled under SIV also) - I like the synthetic groups :) Thanks Ray! BR, Peter

  42. I have seen many posts in this forum with content of Why? How? Cannot? etc....., concerning C-Link (any version). Typical response when asked for definitive answers generally are: If C-Link works on my system, it should work great on yours! If not, don't use it? I find this remedy of support/discussion less than adequate for a reputable piece of hardware! Let alone, in some cases, the investment it was designed to protect. SIV is not a "One Size Fits All" utility, unlike C-Link. With SIV you have the option to tailor it to your own system. I highly recommend SIV as a stable and customizable alternative. Below are "Real" time readings from SIV in control of my H100i GTX. With a little custom tweaking of fan and pump, they run flawlessly, and are recognized upon every boot up (with no Appcrash). SIV is packed full of information about everything on a system that is visible in real time. Red-Ray, thank you for your interest in solving a problem a lot of individuals, like myself, have had with C-Link.

  44. idéalement, en sortie du dernier radiateur, là ou l'eau est la moins chaude, histoire de savoir à quelle température est l'eau qui est envoyée vers les waterblocks. Dans l'absolu ca n'a pas vraiment d'importance, mais c'est ici que la température est la plus stable. Ca évitera de faire accélérer et ralentir les ventilos lors de charges breves sur le GPU 🙂 et selon la vitesse de la pompe, la température en sortie de blocks est encore plus instable (l'eau sort plus chaude avec un débit faible), donc c'est plus pratique de gérer les ventilateurs selon la tempéraure en sortie de radiateurs. Apres, s'il n'y a pas de port sur la pompe même, rien n'empeche de mettre un raccord en T pour mettre une sonde en bouchon, ou encore plus simple : de mettre une sonde en ligne de ce type https://www.amazon.fr/Phobya-71227-accessoire-matériel-refroidissement/dp/B00EUREX1G/ Perso c'est ce que je recommande, et c'est plus discret qu'une sonde bouchon, le fil est plus simple a cacher et a router proprement. On peut aussi en installer une 2e apres CPU/GPU pour voir de combien les radiateurs arrivent a réduire la température. pas nécessaire, mais intéressant

  45. They come with the fans. The fans have two connectors - one for RGB, one for PWM (to spin the blades). Check out the RGB FAQ linked in my signature. There's a lot there that'll help explain things.

  46. Du kannst jeden Kühler der auf den Sockel 115x (1155, 1156, 1150, 1151 (V1+V2) gepasst hat auch bei Sockel 1200 verwenden. Weil Intel den Lochabstand exakt gleich gelassen hat . Einfach das andere Befestigungsset von Intel verwenden (Backplatte und Standoff) das bei der Kühlung beiliegt.

  49. You will be fine and should always choose the fan you really love when it comes to RGB. The performance differences are typically too small to be measured outside of a testing set-up. If you take a heavy watt component and use a small 120/140mm radiator, then fan choice becomes critical. Once you get to 360mm radiators, you can use whatever you want. With three fans the airflow through the radiator is not going to be the limiting factor. There are exceptions like using very thick 54-60mm+ radiators or those with a very dense fin structure. The radiator on the Elite series AIOs is neither of those and made to get good results with any fan. You will be happier with the QL.
