  1. You could set a HW profile to black for all of your devices, then have your PC automatically lock. This should work with most of Corsair's devices.
  2. When it comes to water cooling, I find the most frustrating thing is when you get a case that is not easy to work in. Does that case support anything larger than a 120/140mm single rads? A 120/140mm length rad isn't cheap, compared to a 240mm or 360mm for the price to performance. I would rethink your case selection, before attempting to do Hydro X. There are lots of good cases out there.
  3. iCUE is available for MAC OS, what is the problem?
  4. Run, don't walk! The shampoo looking fluids you talk about look awesome, though they are considered "show fluids". Both Mayhem's Aurora and Primochill Vue have gotten a lot of hate mail from the custom water coolers. The effect doesn't last, is very finicky and more often than not falls out and clogs something. Take a look at Primochill's warnings/disclaimer: https://keepingit.cool/vue TL;DR: Kids don't try this at home. You know what hell is like, though you want to visit anyway Edit: Wait a second...is this a rhetorical question?
  5. I was hoping I could help you resolve the issue before you returned everything. What I was stating earlier is that some people try things they shouldn't with their fans, i.e. plug the RGB cables from the LL fans into a 12v Analog RGB header on the MB and fry the LEDs int he fan. It seems like what you did was fine, though someone else might have damaged the fans and bought new ones and sent their old faulty fans back into Amazon. If Amazon doesn't see any indication of the package being open, they put it back on the shelf for the next unsuspecting buyer to purchase the damage and previously used product. This is just a theory of mine, supported by the following: 1) Amazon's gracious return policy 2) I have only seen this from people who have purchased their products from Amazon 3) I have seen posts in Reddit, where people have reported receiving the equivalent weight in rocks, instead of a graphics card or a non-working item that had apparent evidence of use, i.e. dust on product and/or scratches on screws or mounts. Again this is just a theory of mine and my own opinion.
  6. You can rename them as I have done it. Don't have iCUE on this PC, though I think you have to click on settings or one of the other views and double click on it or something like that. Would have better instructions, though haven't done this in months. I don't have a headphone stand, so I can't speak for it, though I have a lot of other duplicate Corsair devices like LNPs, etc. I have never ran into an issue with not being able to control them separately. Are you using lighting link that would sync devices with same lighting? Do you happen to have a multiple lighting layers stacked on top of each other?
  7. Have you tried a complete uninstall? You can also uninstall and try backing up/removing the Corsair folder in %appdata%
  8. I also thought the D5 would run at 100% duty cycle as that is what fans do when disconnected from PWM. Though when I was working on my loop this past week, I noticed the flow rate seemed low and my flow meter was not working. At the time I had the pump directly connected into a secondary PSU that I use for loop maintenance, while my PC was powered off. I thought there was something wrong with my D5, though Greg mentioned that the XD5 is set to run at 60% when PWM is NC. When I was done with maintenance, I was able to control the pump's speed via iCUE.
  9. The pump should run at 60% when not controlled via PWM. This will be to slow for the flow meter to move, at least for my loop it was. The fact that you had two D5 fail, makes me wonder if you have have it installed sideways or upside down. They are pretty rugged pumps and in the past 3 years I have been doing custom loops and active in the community I think I have only seen one D5 fail. The most others have been DDC or random other brands. Also don't run it dry, that will cause it to fail premature as well.
  10. This is just a theory, tough the reason I asked where you bought it from as I tend to see a lot of people having issues out of the gate that bought their items from Amazon. It seems like people use Amazon as a way to "RMA" their product. More than a few people have damaged their RGB by plugging into something they shouldn't. Lastly try swapping the fan order around. If the first fan's lighting is kaput, then none of the other fan's lighting will work.
  11. Could you enable Debugging Logs in iCUE as well fill out your system info on the CP. Once you have the issue again, reply to this thread with the logs attached. If you don't hear anything back, you can contact support.
  12. 1) Are the LL-120 fans new or did you have them working prior? 2) Is the Commander Pro new? If they are new where did you buy them from? Additional Diagnostic Steps: 1) Try plugging the LL-120's RGB fans into H115i Plat. You should be able to switch them to LLs else only 8 LEDs on the first LL will work. 2) Do the strips work on your MSI MB? 3) Do you have a Lighting Node Pro you could test the fans and strips with? The fact that the LL-120 is having the same issue on the MB as the CoPro, has me concerned.
  13. Draining is the annoying part about doing loops. Some loops I have done, I designed it with draining/maintenance in mind. 1) Drain Res. Make sure to leave open a vent at the top of the res! 2) Remove tube from pump "out" and put a plug on the "out" 3) Remove tube and fitting from first component after pump 4) attach a G1/4 fitting attached to 2-3ft peice of soft tubing. 5) Put mouth to hose and blow. This will help force a lot of the water into the res. You can also attach another soft tubing to the valve to aid in draining. Though plug the top of the res to prevent it from leaking, when you move your case on the side. Once you get most of the liquid out, you can start taking parts of the loop apart, if you chose to remove the rest of the fluid, or to do other things. If I get most the fluid out, I am not going to going to worry about a couple ounces.
  14. The kit was most likely put together to target the needs of most people. From there people will go a la carte for the extra parts. Having a SKU, packaging, and stocking a lot of different kits would cost more. From what is included in the kit, it looks like it is also partially marketing to embed the user tightly into Corsair's ecosystem with the inclusion of the LL Fans and the Commander Pro. It looks like a pretty smart move for Corsair, lower the price to get a loop, while getting them hooked on Corsair's ecosystem. Have you tried the configurator: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/custom-cooling-configurator/ Fluid is cheap and you could always resale the block.
