  1. Hey there. So ive been using my Void Wireless SE since June 2016 and i absolutely love it. Its just great, even got a few of my friends to buy it. Sure, there have been some hickups with the software over the years but nothing major. The headset works just fine, the battery still holds up (although i will replace the battery soon i think) and its just great, however: The mic arm has that system where you can fold it up and its supposed to stay in one of like 10 positions (excuse my choice of words, im not a native speaker). That doesnt really work for me anymore. It is no longer staying in the positions i put it into, it just folds down. That means, when i want the mic out of the way (when drinking something for example) it will immediately drop into the lowest position. There was a bit of feedback back when i first got it, but now it feels like the mechanism that keeps the arm fixed has just used itself up. So, as i am out of warranty and think of myself as fairly capable of repairing stuff (really into RC and Hardware) i decided to open the left earpiece. as may or not be able to see, the little bumps have been mostly carved away over the years (well, to be fair i have had that problem for about 3 years but i didnt really care until now). So, back to my question: Doesn anyone have any idea where i could get a replacement for this? I`d go ahead and have it 3D printed if Corsair still has the documentation and is willing to share it. Maybe someone has a dead unit and would have thrown it away (i`d disassemble it to get that one small part). Im not a fan of throwing away electronics that still work perfectly fine, especially when they are not outdated. Would really appreciate if someone could help me with this. Greetings, Tea Edit: I forgot to mention, im from europe so i cant really use corsairs replacement shop to buy new cable and new eracups. (it got damaged on the micro usb side a bit and the earcups started having the "leather" flake off)
  2. Hi all, I recently got the Virtuoso SE RGB headset, about 2.5 months ago. So far, it's worked fantastic, but recently the swivels for the ear cups have become quite loose. When I first recieved the headset, the swivels were nice and firm, but now they spin almost freely. Is there a way to tighten the swivels back to the way they were out of the box? Thanks!
  3. Hey guys, I just received this high-end headset yesterday and was wondering if it's a feature to have something loosely clanging around in the right earpiece? Whenever I walk around with the headset on or move my head to fast there is a noise of something rolling around almost? Other issues I've had on the first day on ownership, The (1)(1)(1) issue, My mic would not unmute or mute using the button on the headset, CoD:MW had audio crackling when the announcer would speak and during menu music, Audio "chop" at random intervals for a few seconds each time :laughing: :[pouts: Are Corsairs other products equally as troublesome? I was planning on looking into a few parts for a future build but this has me wary. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------EDIT---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lmaoooooo, I figured out what it is, it's the little switch between wireless mode and wired mode. The switch very cheap and wiggly, sad to know that is actually a feature. It couldn't have been terribly more expensive to make this tiny part more sturdy. It's just annoying to have to hear it.
  4. I noticed this about a few days ago. Whenever I scroll down slowly or with soft weight on my mouse it won't register. I don't know if it got loose, but normally you can feel the bumps when scrolling but when I do it slowly or softly I don't feel the bumps and I can do like 10 scrolls and it'll only register 2 out of those 10 times. Whats probably the most irritating thing I'm getting from this, is that when im reading something online and scroll my eyes automatically adjust at the speed im scrolling, but its like someone is messing with my scroll and im eyes get all screwy trying to adjust.
  5. Hi! About a week ago I got myself the new Corsair H80i closed loop water cooling system, and after I first installed it, I have to say I wasn't really that much impressed with it. I was upgrading from a Hyper 212 Evo+ and I barely noticed a couple of degree performance improvement, so I was somewhat disappointed. My idle temps were: 37 35 35 34 (per core) And my load temps were: 72 72 74 68 (IBT 5 pass into Prime 95) Processor details: i7 2600K - 4020 Mhz @ 1.28v - LLC: Medium Radiator setup: 2x 1200rpm cheap fans in push-pull, exhaust Since I kept seeing reviews on the internet with the H80i doing much better, I started looking for the cause of my temperatures, and I seem to have found the issue. The problem seems to be the backplate. There are numerous reports of the backplate being loose, and that seems to be an issue as not enough pressure is put onto the CPU, so the thermal transfer suffers. I noticed this after I applied some thermal grease (Arctic Silver 5), as it did spread, but it seemed there wasn't such good contact (I remember the way my Hyper 212 Evo+ spread the compound). It seems that the LGA1155/1156 double headed screws they supply are too long for some motherboard set ups, and there is need for washers to be placed on the backplate screw holes, behind the motherboard. http://i.imgur.com/HzxIK.png So I installed a set of rubber washers I had from a fan (the backplate would still be a little loose, but FAR from what it is without the washers) and re-mounted the H80i. I redid the tests, the CPU was in the same conditions, the room temperature was the same! Idle: 32 30 30 30 Load: 56 59 62 58 What a difference! And bare in mind, this is with a set of fans which have very poor static pressure and move a small to moderate amount of air (1200 rpm Fractal Silent 120mm fans) in a pretty poorly ventilated case. That's more than 10 degree celsius difference in load, just because of the better contact. The motherboard used is a mITX Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe. So if you're having H80i temperature issues and when you installed it, you noticed that the backplate was very loose after you tightened up the double headed screws, you should give this a shot. NOTE: This might just be an issue with select motherboards, since for some users the screws fit snugly. NOTE: The included metal washers will not fit the screw holes, you need plastic/rubber ones.
  6. So I did an RMA about a week ago to replace my trusty H100i (it's cooling efficiency degraded highly and there was a lot of air in the loop). Got a H100i v2 in return. Nice, yes? Nope. Problem: The whole pumpblock is so loose on the CPU that I hit 100+°C almost instantly as soon as I start a stress test (and that on 4.0 GHz / 1.0v, CPU is in the profile) - The coolant temperature would idle on a chilly 32-38°C (Also using Corsair's preapplied paste, which was pretty dry, is that normal?) I could move it around.. ~5mm while it's installed. I attached an image of the backplate and how far it goes off while the pump is installed. Another thing I noticed is that the standoff screws don't fully screw into the backplate - if my memory serves me right they do on the H100i. Now after those temps I looked around the forum and saw some similar topics. I also read somewhere to try washers, so I took 4 from the 8 of the radiator mount screws and put them on between the motherboard and the standoffs. Swapped cooling paste and now the temps are around 80°C (~41°C coolant) when gaming. Running a stress test or high usage still skyrockets it to 90°C and above though. For comparision: H100i temps @ 4.7 GHz , 1.37v: CPU: 73°C / Coolant: ~50°C All aforementioned stresstests are AIDA64 Extreme System Stability tests (CPU,FPU,Cache,Memory) Now I want to know, is there anything I might be missing onto why its THAT loose without the washers and/or is there maybe a better way to use the washers for increased performance? I was extremely happy with my H100i, but the v2 only surprised me when I opened the package.. The rest is a dissapointment so far. :(: I also contacted the support yesterday, but answer from there will only come on Monday.
  7. I just picked up an H60 for my first foray into water cooling. I installed it on an old 1155 board, and I can't seem to get the mounting bracket tight enough. I've checked and double checked, and the backplate, standoffs, and bracket are all installed per instructions and as snug as I can get them. This unit has the thicker rubber tubing, which appears to be putting more sideways pressure than the mounting bracket can handle. In fact, after removing the pump block, I found that a large chunk of the water block wasn't even contacting the CPU heat spreader because of that. The best I have found so far is that it appears there is more space between my standoffs and the motherboard preventing the bracket from getting tightened down as snugly as it should be. I've found other posts such as this one, where people had to add small washers to pull the bracket down tighter and get it to work, but other directions saying the looseness is OK and washer are not recommended. http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=103014 I'm getting pretty frustrated with the vagueness of the installation instructions and nothing in them about making sure you do things a certain way, such as how much play is too much to get proper tightness of the pump block. Right now after first installed, the pump performs a few degrees worse than the air cooler I had on there before, but over time (like the pump block contact is creeping), it jumps up to 69 C which is almost 10 C hotter than the air cooler I was previously using. I don't see that this will work without adding washers behind the MB to pull the bracket down tighter, and then I'm not even sure, but since that isn't recommended, I'm not sure what to do. I've attached some images to help illustrate the first time I removed it. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
