  1. see that was the problem, say If on the h150i headers I selected core temp instead of coolant temp, and set the fans to max out at like 67% (just guessing what would get the fans close to 1600rpm, since the other pair that came with the h150i top out at 1600) at 60c, then they would seem to ignore the curve and run at 2400 rpm once i put the cpu under stress. at idle they seemed to work fine, so it seems you cannot control fans connected via the h150i pro headers on anything but coolant temp, at least not properly.
  2. Sorry for the misinformation, I use a NZXT h700i....I stripped all of the smart features out of it since besides the case everything else I had was corsair and I wanted to "Link" it all together hence the reason I bought the CPro. About using cpu core temp instead of coolant temp, my question was more of Why doesn't this work properly instead of why am I deciding to go this route. Thanks for those who explained it. I will try that setup (actually I'm doing it now) but I still am at odds about why exactly 2 different Cpros have crapped out on me specifically while using a PWM splitter on the Ml 120's (3) while the ml's which came with the h150i never posed a problem being split on another header. I guess it truly doesn't support 1 amp per header, since it basically broke with .675 amp. I know the popular response will be "We don't officially support using fan splitters" but IMHO there should be 2 versions of a Corsair commander...a Pro which has like 12 headers and comes with a led strip or 2 for like $99, and a plain version which would replace the one we have now. I just wish out of the box it had the ability to control more than 6 fans. For now I guess I will run 3 off of the provided AIO headers.
  3. Reason I want to control all fans via the cpro is i want them to all share curves so since the aio is also case intake my airflow doesn't change from positive to negative and vice versa depending on what the cpu is doing. Also I am trying to make the 2400 rpm set (the ml 120 pro) cap out at 1600 rpm so as to balance with the ones that come with the h150i pro. I know the common suggestion is to leave the fan rpm based off of coolant temp. I guess I could hook up the 3 slower fans to the cpro and the 3 faster ones to the h150i fan headers and play around with the curves (both sets off of coolant temp) till I find something somewhat balanced with rpm. I just wish the Cpro actually worked as stated, IF it really can supply 1 amp per each header then there is zero reason why 3 fans which pull .225 amp ( I assume at max rpm...maybe I don't understand how pwm works) should overload and permanently damage the header. I would appreciate someone from Corsair explaining this better because when I called and spoke to customer service they said it should either work or not, but mine worked fine for a week or so then stopped reporting rpms properly or turning the fans (only on the header that had 3 ml 120 pros with pwm splitter cable)....alll other headers still work fine. This is second unit to act this way..what am I missing? I have multiple pwm splitters, some which came with my h700i case, and others which bought seperately..silverstone I think. Changing the cable doesn't fix the problem, and 3 of the slower ML fans which came with the h150i pro are also running off of one CPro header and that header has never exhibited any problems, using the same type of pwm splitter ( I even switched the ones I was using with each pair and it didn't make the slower fans stop working so Its not the cables) One question though assuming 3 slower mls (the h150i ones) work fine even long term on a single fan header would you guys think this would work??? header 1: h150i ml 120 fan x (3) header 2: ml 120 pro header 3: ml 120 pro header 4: ml 120 pro header 5: ml 140 pro x (2) header 6: ml 140 pro this would allow me to run all 9 off of the Cpro but maybe somewhat more balanced. Seems per specs each ml 140 draws .202 amp so that .404 amp. if amperage draw scaled with RPM and each H150i fan drew .225 x .67 amp (.67 since each fan runs 2/3rd of speed of ML 120 pro) then it would be .45 amp more or less, so a header should also be able to handle the 2 ml 140's. I think maybe at .675amp they have issues (3 x amperage of ML120 pro) hence the reason I would like an official response of what exactly seems to be the issue.
  4. after repeated problems trying to use 9 fans (2 pairs of 3 each with splitters) + 3 seperate ones with my corsair commander pro I am trying to figure out how to use the included 3 fan plus from the h150i pro and have them ramp up based on cpu core temp and not coolant temp. Reason for this is I basically want to have all fan curves increase based on core temp so they will ramp up in unison. It seems that if for instance I set my 3 ml pro 120mm to max of 1600 rpm (or whatever percentage would end up at 1600 rpm) it just goes to full blast instead of to the max set in link. If i control the fans via the fan hubs on the commander pro everything works since except for the fact that the fan hub doesn't seem capable of handling 3 ml pro 120mm even though by spec it should work. I don't want to buy another bulky commander just to run 3 more fans, and want to have push pull on the h150i pro plus 3 additional case fans (all ml 140 pro, 2 top exaust, 1 rear exaust) This has become a royal pita trying to figure out how to run all 9 fans without an additional commander pro ...Is there some sort of powered hub that I can plug into the commander pro to run the 2 groups of fans on my h150i rad. I am using the fans which came with it and the ml 120pro...the fans which came with it are 1600 rpm max, the ml pros are 2400 rpm max....
  5. Deanoe30 what was your final resolution, me I was sent an additional cpro, it worked fine for a week, and the fan channel that had the 3 ml 120 pros (the retail one which is faster than the slower one which come with the h150i pro) died on me again. Whats odd if if the fans (both the slow set and the faster set) are truly the same minus the difference in rpm, you would think that If I set the same fan curve for all fans (the ml 140's i have as exaust top out at 1600 rpm too) then both sets would draw the same amperage, thus not overloading the channel. Even at max rpm those 3 fans should only draw .675 amps out of the 1 amp max. the 3 which came with the h150i pro have never given a problem on either cpro with the exact same wiring setup and same type of splitter. I would be totally fine with controlling the 3 faster fans off of the h150i pros fan connectors, however for the life of me even when making a custom profile so that they max out at like 60-70% (to keep them around 1600 rpm) the 3 fans still run up to 2400 rpm. Would be great if you could share fan curves across the different components, that way I could only use 1 header for each fan....but as it stands now I think im just going to run 1 set of (3) fans on the h150i pro (controlled via the cpro) and the 3 exaust fans so that each have their own independent channel.
  6. So about 2 weeks ago I bought a new case, a h150i pro, and a commander pro. I connected fans as follows to the commander pro 3 fans push on AIO (stock fans for h150i pro) to channel one with a 3-way 4-pin cable splitter. (I think they should use less than .225 amp each one) 3 fans pull on AIO (ml 120 pro) to channel 2 with a 3-way 4-pin splitter cable to channel 2 ml 140 pro to channel 3 (case fan) ml 140 pro to channel 4 (case fan) ml 140 pro to channel 5 (case fan) channel 6 unused. I think max draw should be like 2.5 amps for all these fans per online specs. Max per channel (assuming max is the ml 120 pros with .225 draw per each fan) is .675 amp Today I started up the system and it didn't go to full blast like it normally does then slow down. When i brought up corsair link to see what was happening it showed channel 2 bouncing at 300 rpm. If i put that channel on auto it bounced between 300 rpm and 20000 rpm more or less. If i put another fan on that channel (a single fan) it would work at more or less set rpms (which for the profile should have been like 800-900 at the temps I was at) If I moved the group of fans that was on channel 2 to 1 they worked fine. Likewise If i moved the group (3 with cable) from channel 1 to 2 they started acting crazy. I ended up moving all fans up one channel and skipping 2, and its all working again but channel 2 isn't working. Did it get burnt up somehow with 3 ml 120's on it?
  7. actually i figured this out myself....the K95 platinum wrist rest does come out further and does have a less steep profile. Also I have seen a few people complaining about how quickly the k95 wrist rest material seems to get dirty, I would suggest taking it off and rinsing it off in a sink in cold water with a bit of dish soap to remove any grime, really this has to be the easiest to clean wrist rest I have ever seen in my life due to how easily the surface can be removed.
  8. So basically my question has a few parts 1) I find the texture on the k70 lux wrist rest to be somewhat slippery if that makes sense. I feel as If my hands don't stay planted in place where I would like especially when playing shooter games as if they are always trying to slide around on the wrist rest. so is the texture of the k95 platinum wrist rest less slippery feeling. I know the wrist rest has 2 sides, but just curious If anyone at corsair can chime in on this. 2) the angle and the size of the actual wrist rest. Are both the same angle and size, with the only difference being that one has a slightly longer profile (the k95). I feel as If the rest itself wasn't as steep (due to it coming out further from the keyboard or having feet which made the angle less steep) that the somewhat slippery feeling I get with the k70 wouldn't be an issue. I know i could buy a aftermarket wrist rest but what is the point exactly after paying so much for a keyboard. I want to know because I just bought the k70 lux and would return it for the k95 If the wrist rest is significantly different.
