  1. Now, that's a happy ending.
  2. Heh, yeah, while writing that I was wondering about how to test it and if I really wanted to.
  3. I'll look into that. Does CL2 need to be running to enable this communication?
  4. Yes. CL2 doesn't provide a parallel for failure of the pump that would shut down the system that I know of. That's what I do. After I refined my custom profiles they just work; without CL2 running. Only noise that I'm waiting on a fix for, on both the H100i and 2 H80i's that I have running here is the fan whine. As yet, I don't see a really solid fix that works across the board (no pun intended). Some of the fixes work for some people. Some of the fixes don't. That these three systems aren't all that broken, and the sad state of the patches that I've read about not being effective or making things worse, I'm not about to go fixing.
  5. Fan header only reports pump speed to the motherboard (in order to prevent a "no CPU fan error"). Water temperature is sensed internally by the water block, so it really doesn't need to be hooked to anything to operate. The water block gets/sends all additional information, including pump speed, through the USB connection. That's why CL2 sees the pump and BIOS doesn't, due to parallel signals, so the unit needs replacement if you want to cure the CPU_Fan error but the rest of the system appears to be working as it should.
  6. Figured that might be the case. BUT, it's more than interesting that CL2 sees the pump and BIOS doesn't. This says that the CPU_Fan lead or the on-board circuit is bad and not sending a signal down that wire. Well, as long as you have a Corsair water block on your CPU, the profile stored within it is what is monitoring your CPU (when the fans are properly grouped with the water block--NOT the CPU) by monitoring the temperature of the water. The motherboard has nothing to do with it--and shouldn't. Additionally, once you have developed a good profile for the fans, CL2 doesn't need to run.
  7. OK, not A Maximus but a P9X79 Deluxe. Still current ASUS top of the line and they're all similar. Works here, plugged into the CPU_FAN header. Just turning off the CPU Fan error is not a recommended option, without certifying that the cooler is indeed operating first. Here's what I'd suggest: plug the H100i RPM lead into a motherboard case fan header, plug a case fan into the CPU_FAN header, for a VERY SHORT TIME boot into BIOS and check the Monitor tab for RPM on those two. RPM on the pump should be ~2,200. Check the CPU temp to see if it is stable or rising, and then shut it down. That's as long as I'd recommend running if the H100i pump isn't turning. There should be enough thermal dissipation in the block and water behind it to sustain that long without hitting the CPU max temp while idling. If the CPU temp isn't rising but stays at a nominal 35C-40C or so, then I'd say that the RPM lead or connector is damaged or the firmware just isn't sending the signal.
  8. Exactly. This is intended to help people get their component sensing back online, without having to do complete reboots, ad infinitum, to make devices show up. Nothing more. Do you have to constantly have the last word and correct me on anything I post?
  9. Leave CorsairLINK2 UI running Open Task Manager Select CorsairLINK Hardware Monitor process Right-click on it > End Task Go to the Corsair applications installed directory Manually re-start CorsairLINK_HardwareMontior.exe It may take two times to get it to wake up, but all of your devices should show up
  10. We're talking about mounting position of fans and the noise generated in a darn standard position that should be basic to check. I know. Mentioned it many times.
  11. Wow. Do these CoolIT guys test anything before releasing it? I mean, when you release a fix, it had darn well better work. Guess my clicking 120s on my H100i and 2 H80i's are actually a Good Thing .
  12. Evidently the bearings don't like the weight added to the force. It's all in one direction with the fans pointed up. With them pointed down, the force partially balances against the weight and the bearings like it better.
