  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.
  16. You could just run a normal air cooled graphics card instead. Won't be as quiet during gaming but they do have zero RPM mode during idle. I am not sure if there is even brackets for newer GPUs. What GPU will you be using in your system?
  17. I have a 2017 Corsair ONE. I upgraded the riser cable with a Thermaltake 200mm length riser cable. I believe the i145 is the same length. One thing to keep in mind when you buy a riser cable also, is to make sure that the GPU end of the new cable is oriented in line with the cable itself. What I mean is that some cables are designed so you can install your graphics card with the fans facing out of the case in a normal size pc case. So the connection on the GPU side is perpendicular to the cable which will make it hard to use on the Corsair ONE case. You want a connection that is in line with the cable. Have a look at the link below just to see what I mean about the connections. (Ideal GPU connection) https://www.thermaltake.com/gaming-pci-e-3-0-x16-riser-cable.html (Not ideal GPU connection) https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/legacy-products/accessories/riser-cable-200mm/ One more thing to keep in mind, is if you can, find out the specs of the mounting holes for the GPU side. Some riser cables won't line up the the Corsair ONE mounting studs. In my case they don't line up so my riser cable is not screwed on the studs. Not a big deal since the graphics card is mounted by its bracket anyway; my system has been running with no issues.
  18. I see what you mean about the AIO. My thinking is that you are most likely going to need to buy a new cooler (AIO or Air) because yes the tubes are a bit short on the original AIO. Another think to consider is how the tubes are attached to the radiator. It's different to a normal AIO and so it may not be easy to position them to reach the CPU. Also, you would have to figure out a custom way to attach the radiator to the new case. Air cooler will be cheaper and can be just as effective as an AIO. AIO will be quieter. As for the GPU, it will depend on what you are after. If you are after similar performance as the 1080Ti, then the two I suggested will be enough. You could look into AMD cards as well like the 5700XT. However, if you haven't done it already, try connecting your 1080Ti directly to the motherboard without the riser cable and see if it works. Could be that the riser cable died and not the GPU.
  19. Hi there. I have a 2017 Corsair One. Mine had an air cooled GPU so the pump that yours had on your GPU was used for the CPU in mine. With that in mind, I can suggest for you to simply use the GPU liquid pump on your system for the CPU instead so you can still use your Corsair One. You can then buy something like a GTX 1660 Super 6G which is not very expensive. Or maybe a RTX 2060 which is faster than a 1080ti. I know the 1660 super might not be as powerful as a 1080ti but it is faster than a GTX 1070. The PSU should still be good enough for this setup. You can leave the GPU air cooled. It will not be a problem. To give you an idea, I have an RTX 3070 in mine (air cooled; Gigabyte RTX 3070 Eagle OC) and has been running like a dream. There may just be a bit more noise than you're used to due to the GPU fans.
  20. You could maybe look into buying a riser cable and replacing the original one. This could be the first thing to try and it won't cost much. It may not be the GPU that has died. In fact, if you are willing to work on your system, you could even just try and connect the GPU directly to the motherboard first to confirm that the issue is the GPU. You will need to pull out the motherboard to do this. Just make sure it is not in direct contact with metal surfaces or fabrics.
  21. Something you could try is to go to the registry editor (win + R, regedit) and then follow the directory: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\BIOS On the right hand side look for a name called SystemProductName and make sure that the data reads CORSAIR ONE or something similar. If it doesn't, you will need to right click on SystemProductName and click Modify and change the value data to CORSAIR ONE. Some people (myself included) were not able to install corsair link after a fresh install of windows, as this deletes the identity of the Corsair ONE. It only worked after following the steps above. I know that we are talking about a windows update but maybe this could be the problem? Also, make sure you are installing the latest version of corsair link. The one in the sticky thread. https://forum.corsair.com/v2/showthread.php?t=175259
  22. Just to clarify: 1. How did you plug the top fan to the motherboard? 2. When you turn the pc on, what RPM does the fan run at? 3. The fan curve of the top fan cannot be adjusted with any software if the fan is connected via the GPU pump. You can only use default or max speed via corsair link. When you open corsair link, does it show fan speed?
  23. Corsair have announced the new i200. Check the sticky thread. https://forum.corsair.com/v2/showthread.php?t=205532
  24. It could be then that the PSU fan may be rubbing against something. Check to see if it is rubbing against the grill on the front of the fan; they could be bent. Since it is not recommended to pull apart a PSU, then yeah if you are comfortable with replacing the PSU (and possibly voiding warranty) then that would be the quickest way to fix the issue. Although replacing just the PSU fan can be done and there are guides on how to do it. The risk is when you put it all back together and it ends up with some fault that could cause a short circuit, etc. So replacing the whole PSU is probably best if you are not able to figure out where the fan is rubbing especially because it could be that the fan bearing could be damaged in which case you would need a new fan.
  25. Have a look at iCUE when this sound happens and see if there is a spike in RPM in either the GPU or CPU pumps and fan RPM at the exact moment when the sound happens.
