  1. My system actually had a custom version of Corsair Link software (I have the 2017 model). Back then, they used it to control pump and fan speeds; not iCUE. I was simply experimenting with connecting the fan to the motherboard because the software also stopped working properly after a major win10 update. I ran it like that for a while until I realised they had updated link to be compatible with the win10 update. Once I updated corsair link, I reverted back to stock and it all runs fine. In the case of the newer Corsair ONE models (2019 and 2021), I am not sure what the problem is with iCUE. It does sound like it is a compatibility issue and Corsair should be updating iCUE in line with win10 updates. Try and do what Kookla2 did and perform a clean uninstall of iCUE (including registry entries), and then reinstall it and see if it works.
  2. For the time being, I suggest to connect the top fan directly to one of the motherboard's fan headers. This way at least you will be able to set your own fan curve based on CPU temps in BIOS. You will need at least a 30cm PWM fan power extension cable. I did this at one point with mine (2017 model) and it worked fine with no issues (now it's back with its stock liquid cooler). The only thing is that the fan will no longer react to GPU temps; only CPU temps, but it should be good because there will still be enough airflow.
  3. Hey zguy85. Good to see you're still around. Yeah I'm excited too! Though I just want to know if the new models will make it down under. The current a200 and i200 with the RTX 3080 have not made their way here yet. Oh well, here's hoping the Alder Lake models come. I may pull the trigger but we'll see. Otherwise, I might just upgrade my current OG Corsair ONE with Alder Lake hardware since I'm also rocking a RTX 3070. 😎
  4. So I have been around this forum for a bit now. I have a 2017 Corsair ONE which I have fully upgraded. I want to find out (from Corsair or anyone who has worked this out) if it is possible to control the case LEDs using the custom Corsair link program for the ONE when using a different motherboard. The reason I'm asking is because I have been able to make the program work well using the version in this link https://forum.corsair.com/v2/showthread.php?t=206376 which I know we need when updating to the latest windows 10 version. Corsair link is able to read CPU temps and load % as usual, storage drive temps, GPU temps. It also reads coolant temp, pump RPM, case fan RPM and it even lets me set the fan speed to either default value or max and it all seems to work as it used to with the original MSI motherboard. The only thing it doesn't read is motherboard sensors but I kind of figured that would be because the OG motherboard was custom. And there is no control over the case LEDs. The thing is, in the original MSI motherboard, the case LEDs where just connected to the normal JLED1 connector so I figured it shouldn't be any different to connecting to any motherboard on the RGB LED1 connector. But alas, it doesn't work. The motherboard I'm using is an ASRock z490m ITX. I've connected the case LEDs to the RGB_LED1 connector and I know I can control the LEDs using their own software (which is how it's set up currently) but I am wondering why Corsair link doesn't seem to control them even though it can pretty much do everything else. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks.
  5. Alternatively you could look into installing an air cooled graphics card. You would just need to measure the length available from where the GPU display ports bracket is, to the top of the case just before the top fan so you know what length of graphics card you can fit. Probably should do width also because there are dual fan graphics cards that even though they are short, they are also quite wide and might not fit.
  6. Hey nice job on the upgrades! Nice video too. Glad to see one more 2017 Corsair one being upgraded. I have to recommend to upgrade the motherboard and CPU soon though because the CPU will be bottlenecking the 2080Ti in games. Also I don't believe the motherboard is capable of PCIe 3.0 speeds as that was part of the problem. It wasn't just the riser cable but the motherboard as well. Not a whole lot of difference between 2.0 and 3.0 but still. Awesome job though and thanks for the video. Love the Evo by the way. Cheers from straya!
  7. Unfortunately the Z270 motherboard on the 2017 Corsair One only supports up to 7th gen intel cpus. The way it works is intel changes the shape and connection of their cpus every two years. This means that the motherboards only support two generations of cpus before you have to upgrade. So for example current motherboards like the Z490 and Z590 support only 10th and 11th generation intel cpus. Once 12th generation cpus come out, we will need a new motherboard to upgrade.
  8. To answer your question, Maybe the i200 might be a bit faster and you also get a more complete motherboard with the Z590 platform compared to the a200 which has a B550 platform; one spec below the X570 which is the top at the moment for AMD. But consider that the 5900x is much faster at productivity tasks in case you use your machine for such work. To be honest, I don't think you would go wrong with either and the difference in speed will come down to maybe a maximum of 10fps because the Corsair One system specifically is tuned to work within thermal constraints so all components don't actually work at their full speed (regardless of it being Intel or AMD) like in a normal pc case where air flow is not a concern. This is to maintain temps. Still, the difference between a Corsair One and a traditional system will also be only a few fps.
  9. While you wait for support from corsair, I can suggest one thing if you are willing to do this yourself: You can get a PWM extension cable so you can connect the top fan directly to the motherboard. This way, you can go into BIOS and set your own fan curve that reacts to CPU temps. This can be temporary until Corsair sort this out but at least you will be able to use your system like normal.
  10. Nice job on the upgrade!!!! I hope you get a lot more mileage out of it. I have a 2017 corsair One also but mine came with the air cooled GTX 1070 so it made it even easier to upgrade. One thing I can share for your information in case you want to try it: The liquid pump used on the GPU in your version is actually the same one that was used on my version but for the CPU instead. This includes the bracket. So if you're feeling up to it, you could try and use the liquid pump and radiator of your GTX 1080 on your CPU instead and you can then just plug the case fan back to the pump like before and it should work just fine because the fan reacts to coolant temperature not the actual CPU or GPU temps. So in other words, you would be replacing your current CPU cooler with the GPU cooler. You will just need to check that it closes fine since the hoses for the GPU cooler are longer than the CPU cooler. Otherwise good job on the upgrade. It's good to see more people upgrading the Corsair One as it is a really good design and really well optimised for airflow.
  11. No problem. Feel free to ask any more questions. And let us know how you go with your upgrades and maybe post some pics. :biggrin:
  12. Hey there! Nice move on getting a second hand one. Now you can do what you want with it. I have a 2017 Corsair one and have fully upgraded everything. Running an air cooled graphics card but still using the original liquid cooler for the CPU. The CPU is an i7 10700. As far as motherboards go, almost every ITX motherboard will fit just fine and you should still be able to use the liquid cooler. Of course the liquid cooler is for Intel CPUs only because of the bracket. But I can confirm that the CPU cooler supports at least up to 10th gen intel CPUs with Z490 ITX motherboards. If you want to use air cooling for the CPU, then you will need to make sure the cooler will fit with the motherboard and that no components will get in the way such as RAM etc.
  13. Unfortunately you can't adjust fan curve at all. It is built in with the liquid pump. One thing I would suggest for the time being while you wait for a response from corsair, is to connect the top fan directly to the motherboard and create your own fan curve based on CPU temps in the BIOS. This way you can at least use your system. You could also try, if you haven't done it already, to uninstall and re-install iCUE and see if that works. Something else you could try is to install iCUE v3.
  14. Hi there. I am assuming you have the original corsair one. I do not recommend uninstalling the program permanently as it is the only program that can monitor and control the top fan and it also the only one that can monitor coolant temperature. The pump can be monitored using other software but with the way this system has been designed, the top fan can only be recognised by link. Additionally this program was custom made for the Corsair ONE as it controls the fan curve of the top fan as well and keeps the pump and coolant temperature working correctly. I know that link has a bug that makes it use a lot of CPU resources. I managed to rectify this by uninstalling the program fully and then re-installing it when my system was stock. I actually have now fully upgraded my system but I am still using the stock liquid cooler so I have link installed and its working fine with no high CPU usage.
  15. Yeah I would install the radiators at least when testing. It should be fine in terms of temps as you are just testing to see if you get an image when booting. You can just load to windows and as long as everything works you can then just shut it down. It's just a quick check. Unfortunately I am simply unsure that the radiator mounting would be standard as this system has a lot of custom built parts specifically for the Corsair ONE. Even the motherboard is custom. But there's only one way to find out, and that is to try it and see how it goes.
