  1. Hi All, I recently purchased the Commander PRO mostly for controlling my fans based on the temp sensors that come with the device. I was looking for a solution that would dynamically adjust the fans without the need for intervention. My system is water cooled and i wanted the temps to be controlled based on the RAD temperature or other temp sources, GPU temp and such. So far, i am less than impressed with the device and with the software when it comes to controlling fans. Its a complete waste of money... let me explain some of the issues i am encountering. NOTE: All bios options for fan control/fan hysteresis are disabled. No other software is installed for controlling fans, only the Commander Pro. Choice of fans are 3x Noctua 120mm PWM on the RAD (500rpm/2200rpm min/max). 1. Integrated fan profiles, Quiet/Balanced/Extreme are utter nonsense. Fans are constantly ramping up and down when the system is idle (2% cpu usage and temps are stable ~30c). The software does not state which system sensor is being used for these profiles, i'm assuming cpu? Quiet profile fan rpm range varies from 8xx rpm till 19xx rpm. Balanced profile fan rpm range varies from 15xx rpm till 19xx rpm. Extreme profile fan rpm range varies from 18xx rpm till 22xx rpm. 2. Custom Profile has 3 different options with wildly different operation: 'Fixed %' works exactly as it should, all 3 fans have the same rpm, +/- 10 rpm variance. This is essentially the only fan option i can use, and i need to adjust this manually when idle versus gaming. 'Fixed RPM' works as it should, although there are larger fluctuations, for example rpm varies from 397 rpm till 613 rpm, when set to 500 rpm. There's a +/- 100rpm variance. There is also variance between the fans themselves, for example Fan 1 is 389 rpm and fan 3 can be on 620 rpm. The fans are not in sync as they are with the 'Fixed %' option. Three different fans ramping up and down at different points is horrible. 'Custom Curve', set to either Quiet, Balanced or Extreme and a specific sensor can be chosen is flaky. I get the same issues with the fans ramping up and down, similar to the standard iCue profiles. If i choose a sensor that does not fluctuate, for example my RAD sensor (Native thermister that came with the Command PRO) or the Radeon VII Temp, which are normally static when idle and sitting at approx 30 degrees, both sensors fluctuate by 1/100th of a degree and the fans are still fluctuating between 641 rpm and 998 rpm, all 3 fans and completely different inervals. I've looked into setting some kind of custom curve based on a sweeping curve and stepped curve... If my RAD sensor is stating 30 degrees and i look at the fan curve with one of the points set at 750rpm at 30 degrees, the rpm is not adhered too. If i set all points on the custom curve to 0 and leave the last point sitting at 30 degrees and 750 rpm for infinity, essentially mimicking a fixed flat rpm range, it makes absolutely no difference. Again fan rpm is fluctuating wildly between 619 rpm and 887 rpm. So to conclude, basically every option that i need from the hardware and software is completely useless for me unless i manually set static %, i can do that through the BIOS. It makes absolutely no sense in spending money on the Commander Pro and using iCue. Either the firmware on the device is a mess or the software is a mess, but its probably a combination of both. My Feeling from using the hardware and software is 'it might work, it might not'. Having the option to delay the ramp up and down, hysteresis, on the Commander Pro would probably help. Is this the best product we have in 2020 for controlling fans/monitoring temps and components? It seems like a complete failure of product design to the point where, as a customer, i feel like asking 'Why did you even waste the time and resources creating a product that can be outshone by using a simple 6 euro Potentiometer' If anyone has any tips on how i can setup my fans to slowly ramp up and down rather than having a heart attack every .5 seconds, i would love to hear from you! Apologies for the rant.
  2. Hello guys and girls I have 4 Noctua fans 3 will work all the time the 4th has to be disabled and set to auto to spin once I’ve logged into windows once the icue software re detects the fan it stops spinning to the point now I have 3 fans plugged in and one on the motherboard header can’t seem to work it out cause I have 5 fans I want to run on the commander pro
  3. Hi Corsair, This question is discussed a bit on other forums e.g. http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?p=151460 and https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/corsair-sf600-platinum.7775/page-4 . This Corsair forum should be the absolutely best to ask: If a customer would embark on the project of upgrading the SF600 Platinum fan to an even better one, then, exactly which are the world's best fans that fit in the SF600? Please suggest exact product name. Generally these seem to be understood to be made by Noctua. Thanks!
  4. Hello all. Writing here in hopes someone might be able to help. I have had problems with stability even since the start with my new system. I get random blue screens referring to IRQ errors, WHEH uncorrectable error, clock watchdog timeout. My Specs: Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING, S-1151 Processor: Intel Core i9-9900K Memory (part number): Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 4x8GB CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Graphics Card #1: POWERCOLOR Radeon HD 7990 6GB Sound Card: Asus Xonar DX 7.1 Monitor: 3x ASUS VG278HE 144Hz Storage #1: Intel 120GB ssd (system) Storage #2: Samsung SSD 840 Pro CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 Power Supply: MIST 1000W Keyboard: Microsoft Ergo 4000 Mouse: Logitech G402 Headset: Sennheiser PC 363D Headset/Speakers: Logitech 5.1 OS: Windows 10 Pro 64BIT Accessory #1: Samsung 970 EVO 500GB x2 M2.NVM I ran memtest86 and the first scan gave the following results, with all 4 memory sockets populated: http://www.bufe.no/img/asus/4x8GB-strixEgaming-fail1.jpg Then I tested all 4 modules, 1 by 1 in the first DIM socket with 4/4 passes all tests..and there were no errors at all for either module. Then I ran 1 module in each DIM socket in sequence, to check if maybe the DIM's had faults, but I did not get any errors then either. Then I rearranged the memory modules and tested again with all 4 modules populated and got the following results. http://www.bufe.no/img/asus/4x8GB-strixEgaming-fail2.jpg I am very confused now, as to how the comprehensive testing for each module did not give any errors, yet with all 4 populated it gives errors. I have tested booting with default settings in bios as well as with AI-Overclock , both with and without XMP profiles enabled, and the machine just does not want to be stable. CINEBENCHR15.038 crashes randomly, and the Intel Benchmark test software crashes if I stress the memory. In BIOS i have enabled 4x mode for NVM instead of default 2x and have not populated SATA ports 5 and 6. My cooler gives me a score of 191 in the auto-clock overview in BIOS, and max temp i have seen was 78 degrees with 5200 overclock on all cores in a CPU stress test with the Intel benchmark utility. The CPU cooler never seem to get hot at all and feels cold to the touch at all times. So I am starting to wonder if it is the motherboard that is unable to run with all 4 memory slots filled? The memory i use is a set of 2x8GB with product number: CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 https://www.komplett.no/product/893831/datautstyr/pc-komponenter/minnebrikker/corsair-vengeance-lpx-ddr4-3200mhz-16gb# As far as I know, the modules should be compatible with the motherboard. Any advise or tips would be greatly appreciated. Regards Bård Norway
  5. Hi guys, I have a doubt and I would appreciate any help given, as the title says, It's possible to use the H115i Pro with the Noctua NF-A14 industrialPPC-2000 fans? There will be no problems with the fan static pressure? Because in the specifications says that the fan static pressure is 1.27 mm-H2O, I don't see anywhere the limit for it https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Liquid-Cooling/Hydro-Series%E2%84%A2-H115i-PRO-RGB-280mm-Liquid-CPU-Cooler/p/CW-9060032-WW The Noctua NF-A14 industrialPPC-2000 have a fan static pressure of 4,18 mm-H2O https://noctua.at/es/products/fan
