  1. This issue sounds like a Operating system corruption, possibly the updates weren't applied correctly when it shut down.
  2. The hardware is part of the mounting kit that can be purchased through the Corsair store. Here's the link: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/hydro-series-h60-h80-h100-universal-bracket-kit However, i would contact Corsair Customer Service to see if they will send the stand offs and thumb screws.
  3. This makes no sense, how can the max temperature under load be lower with a higher water temperature (2 Celsius = 35.6 Fahrenheit).
  4. Try mounting in the top with hoses towards the rear of case. Hose positioned front facing will be obstructed by ODD bay.
  5. Your opinion is a vast over-complication of known facts. Moving this debate to the Game section where a poll will be started, everyone is encouraged to participate.
  6. Its a known fact that Core parking creates in game stuttering on Intel Core i7 processors with H/T dating back to Sandy Bridge, additionally it also affects AMD FX processors. Most games only take advantage of 2 logical Cores no matter how many Cores the processor has. The stuttering arise when Windows continues to enable and disable Cores every few seconds while trying to offset the Load demand. I would recommend to pull up a YouTube video showing stuttering, it's has nothing to due with the lag issue. Your assumption that Net Coding is urban myth is laughable, DICE seriously drop the ball on this. Look no further than the introduction of Network Smoothing Factor> As far as the claim that Corsair LINK is creating a stuttering in game is just factually incorrect. How can a machine be under powered when CPU demand is 50% and Memory is using 3.5-4.0 GB of 8.0 GB under full system load and gaming?
  7. You are incorrect for assuming urban myth and Core Parking has no affect in games. Obviously you are not aware of the core parking feature built into Windows which can be traced back to Windows 7. With 600 hours in Battlefield i would expect someone to know the difference between stuttering and lag. Everyone knows the Net Code is screwed up in battlefield however it has nothing to due with the game stuttering.
  8. Here is the link as requested: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=135179 Red-ray quoted " That is what I expected would be happening and eventually the system will be low on memory and things will be sluggish. All you can do is wait for Corsair to fix their code and in the meantime exit and restart CL one in a while ". Care to explain to the Forums how the Corsair LINK is related to the stuttering? The issue was related to " Core Parking ", so it appears you were incorrect once again.
  9. If you would have bothered to read my post Unofficial Hydro Series Installation Guide, it clearly states the H80i GT and H100i GTX are Asetek made pumps. Red-ray you don't even know the difference between a Core Parking issue and a Memory Leak issue.
  10. Corsair isn't going to release the Link software USB protocol no matter how much the select few continue to raise Cain. I'm not trying to insult anyone, but it's readily apparent some don't have a sense of business. Has anyone ever heard of a Non-Disclosure Agreement, Intellectual Property Rights and or Patent Rights? Corsair doesn't own the Intellectual Property Rights for the LINK software, it's leased from CoolIT. A violation of their Legal agreement would cause Repercussion in the Hundreds of Thousands if not Millions with Attorney's have a field day. Any Corsair Employee can weigh on this if it's not correct or if the LINK software is owned outright by Corsair, please correct me if i'm wrong?
  11. Yes, the backplate can be swapped to correct position without removing the pump head, but it will require removal of the pump head mounting bracket and a second pair of hands to keep pressure on the pump head against the CPU die cap. It should not pose an issue if the pump head needs to be removed and reseated, just monitor the CPU temperature if it becomes to high than the TIM will need replaced.
  12. I don't believe the backplate has a different thread count for standoffs vs the Asetek backplate included with the H55 cooler. The rest of the mounting system will be the same. A Corsair employee can verify this information if correct.
  13. Successfully working LINK with Windows 8.1 I've seen many complaints and comments with regards to Corsair LINK and Windows 8.1 compatibility, so I decided to post a known working LINK to help other members. Background History: Corsair LINK was launched in January 2011 at the CES show in Las Vegas. What you may or may not know is that Corsair LINK software was developed by CoolIT. CoolIT proprietary software is leased by Corsair with their own Branding. CoolIT ECO III solutions encompass the Hydro series H60, H80i, H100i and newly launched H110i GT. With Windows 8.1 came the introduction to power management improvements which helps reduce power consumption and extend battery life on mobile computers. When a USB device presents itself as a Human Interface Device (HID), Windows 8.1 can suspend this device to reduce power. Known issues or symptoms: when you connect a USB device to a computer running Windows 8.1, the device is suspended and doesn't recharge. This feature may be great for portable computers but doesn't benefit nor is it useful for a desktop computer, additionally it has been creating many issues for people who are experiencing problems with the LINK interface. Step 1, Pre-Configuration: - Disable legacy USB devices (UEFI) prior to installation - Install Window 8.1 in UEFI mode Step 2, Connecting devices - Connect devices to Corsair LINK (Corsair LINK Commander or LINK Commander mini, Cooling Node, Fans, Temperature Sensors, Lighting Node with RGB LED Strips, Corsair Hydro USB, and Corsair H100i. When using a LINK Commander with the Hydro series pump, be sure to install into a separate USB connection port). - If your MainBoard doesn't support more than one USB connection, a separate USB port expander would be required (NZXT makes a nice internal USB expansion port that will allow 3 additional USB connections for devices). Step 3, Update Procedure: - Install all MainBoard Firmware Updates (UEFI/BIOS, chipset, USB drivers, etc.) - Apply all available Microsoft Updates for Windows. Allow Windows to restart as necessary while "Configuring Windows". Updates should apply without issues. Step 4, Corsair LINK installation Download the Corsair LINK software. Right click the download and install software via elevated or admin. Allow the Corsair LINK to install correctly including firmware updates for connected components (don't cancel anything during the installation). Restart computer, Corsair LINK should appear (LINK default setting will "Run at Windows Startup", disable this since it's not necessary). The LINK will still run in the background. Open Corsair LINK, the H100i may show all zeroes. Other system information Corsair LINK obtains comes from the MainBoard (CPU Temp, CPU Activity, GPU Temp and Fan, and Hard Drive Temp) should be present and accurate. To confirm information is correct, enter UEFI and compare with the information inside UEFI. FIRMWARE Versions are as follows: Corsair LINK Version 2.7.5361 or 2.7.5339 Corsair Hydro USB - 2.0.0 Corsair H100i - 1.0.7 Corsair Commander - 2.0.6 Corsair Cooling Node - 1.2.5 Corsair Lighting Node - 1.1.9 Step 5, Registry Edit: If the registry edit is required, make sure to follow the instructions below exactly. SGC assumes no responsibility for any issues that would arise from incorrect or improperly entered information which could corrupt the Operating System. Corsair Registry is identified by VID_1B1C. Registry changes are needed to the USB\VID_1B1C&PID_0C02 and USB\VID_1B1C&PID_0C04 Registry items. >Open search and type regedit >Right click and run regedit in elevated or admin >Open registry and look for HKey Local Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB\VID_1B1C&PID_0C02. >Edit each path string you see under this (numbers and ampersands smashed together), expand the Device Parameters, then right click and select modify to change the DWORD settings (value data) to 0 (0 = disable). >Next do the same for AllowIdleIrpInD3, DeviceSelectiveSuspended, EnhancedPowerManagementEnabled, SelectiveSuspendEnabled. >Make the same edits for USB\VID_1B1C&PID_0C04. After Registry edit is complete, reboot the computer and all icons should appear on the left side of the Corsair LINK window. Next delete the old icons with the zero's, followed by moving the new icons to their proper location or where you would like them. Save the Profile, Reboot computer, reopen Corsair LINK. Now everything should be working as intended. The only known issue that is not addressed would be H100 saving the user defined color after restarting the computer. Here's a quick workaround: Set the LED color you would like on the Hydro pump head Example RED Adjust - R 255, Adjust - G 1 or 2, Adjust - B 1 or 2 On start the H100 will start with a White color for a few seconds until Corsair LINK software is initialized, it will then apply the color that was selected. Once everything is working properly, correct values will be displayed and you will now be able control fans with custom curve profiles.
  14. Unofficial Hydro Series Installation Guide - Asetek Pump Installation This part of the guide, we'll be covering the installation of Asetek made Corsair Hydro Series H50, H55, H75, H90, H105 and H110 pumps. While it has more parts to put together, it’s quite easy and should take about 5 – 10 minutes depending on ones experience. Step 1, upon opening your new Hydro Series Pump, take a few minutes to lay out all included parts on a flat surface and verify needed Mounting components were included in the box. Simply open the Corsair quick start guide to page no. 1 (included hardware) and compare the pictures with your hardware. Mounting hardware http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag445/BlackOpsBoxes/Corsair%20Guide/Asetek%20Installation%20Guide/IMG_0198_zps9ps4g1vs.jpg Step 2, this part of the guide will pertain to Intel LGA 775, 115x and 1366 mounting when installing a Asetek made Hydro H50, H55, H75, H90, H105 and H110 pumps. Those who are installing the newly launched H80i GT/H100i GTX Series pumps can skip this step since the retention bracket comes pre-installed from the factory. Step 3, Retention bracket assembly. There several parts involved with the assembly, standoff bushings, upper retention bracket, retention bracket clip and standoffs. Notice the 2-piece retention standoff bushings are marked on the sides for Socket that you're installing. These standoff bushing mount different ways for LGA 115x and 1366. They are easy to assemble, just insert into retention bracket and clip them together. Review the images below showing the installation.

Those who are installing a LGA 775, 115x or 1366, take note that the pins insert into the mounting in different position for each socket. Once pins have been installed, just line up with the mounting holes on your MainBoard and insert the standoffs from the front. The standoffs just need to be hand tight, no need to go overboard making them iron tight. If you're using Intel: LGA 2011, 2011-v3 or AMD: AM2, AM3, FM1, FM2 you can skip this step since you'll be using the backplate that came with your MainBoard. Backplate with LGA Socket pin location http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag445/BlackOpsBoxes/Corsair%20Guide/Asetek%20Installation%20Guide/IMG_0201_zpsqcgh7nfz.jpg Backplate with retainer pins installed http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag445/BlackOpsBoxes/Corsair%20Guide/Asetek%20Installation%20Guide/IMG_0202_zpsvf6dq3u3.jpg Backplate installed onto MainBoard http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag445/BlackOpsBoxes/Corsair%20Guide/Asetek%20Installation%20Guide/IMG_0205_zpsrw0km7fe.jpg Step 5, Align the pump assembly with retention bracket with the backplate pins, standoffs will screw through the MainBoard into the pins making the assembly secure. The process I use when installing a CPU waterblock assembly, is once the mounting bracket is lined up correctly and seated to the CPU, continue to apply lite pressure in the center of waterblock while installing the standoffs (just partially tighten them for now since this step will be repeated, the goal is to install the bracket properly so it does go off center causing poor contact with the IHS). Once all standoffs are installed then we can start to secure them starting in the top left corner, moving to the bottom right corner, next moving to the bottom left corner and finally the right top corner. The standoffs should be hand tightened first and then screw driver making sure they are secure to make proper contact, there’s need to go overboard making them iron tight. Finally, connecting power to the pump with the CPU_FAN or CPU_OPT port on the MainBoard. Newer Mainboards will use 4-pin PWM headers that will accept the 3-pin pump connection. The 3-pin connection only reports the pump RPM or speed to BIOS since it’s not adjustable. Connect the fan to any open fan header on the MainBoard (does have to be connect to the CPU_OPT, CHA_FAN or SYS_Fan can also be used). Note: on some high end MainBoards from Z87 and newer will run both the CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT fan ports at full speed.
