Optical Drive # 1







  1. Hi all, I'm having some trouble getting iCue to recognise a newly purchased and installed H115i Pro XT RGB. The pump lights have lit up and are cycling through (what I assume) to be a standard rainbow cycle, the pump is cooling well after configuring it in my motherboard's BIOS and 2x Noctua NF-A14s I've attached to the radiator and Corsair Commander Pro are running fine. Cooling wise I'm pleased, however I cannot get iCue to recognise it in order to monitor pump speed and customise RGB. If it helps, here's my PC's spec [running latest Windows 10]: Ryzen 5 5600X Gigabyte Aorus X570I Crucial Ballistix 2x8GB 3600Mhz CL16 Sabrent Rocket 1TB NVME (TLC) [boot drive, various other drives for game and recording libraries] Corsair SF600 Platinum PSU PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 6700 XT Cooler Master NR200P (using vented side panel and horizontal GPU layout) Corsair Commander Pro, attached are: 2x NF-A12x15 bottom intakes, 2x NF-A14 side intakes (H115i rad) & 2x Cooler Master Sickle Flow fans exhausting up top. H115i Pro XT RGB in the USB 1 header Monitoring and controlling fan speeds and component temperature is fine through the Commander Pro in iCue. However, the H115i Pro XT RGB refuses to show up. So far I've tried: -Disbaled fast boot and XM-something hand off under USB settings in motherboard BIOS (following a post on Corsair forums), -Updated motherboard's chipset drivers to latest, -Reinstalled iCue 4 (per Corsair's clean install guide), -Installed the iCue v3.x on the H115i Pro XT RGB's product page under 'Support - Downloads', -Using USBDeview to try and locate H115i (no success, can see Commander Pro as only Corsair device), -Windows 10 Device Manager that reveals 'Corsair composite virtual device' which apparently has the latest/most optimised drivers - possibly Commander Pro? -No micro-USB cable on hand small enough to plug into the back of the motherboard to see if it's a Commander Pro compatibility issue. It would press against and possibly damage the RAM modules. Any further troubleshooting tips would be greatly appreciated. I have read this is a problem on AMD systems and if it requires an RMA I'd rather avoid it. Also other users who have experienced the same problem have reported plugging their case USB into the Commander Pro's USB header and pump usb directly into the motherboard has solved the issue - I'd rather avoid this due to further cable management and tinkering after squeezing the H115i into the NR200. The cooler is running seemingly fine and I'm content with performance. It would just be nice to see it in iCue and customise colour schemes - this is also why I went for the H115i over NZXT X63 (in my girlfriend's SSUPD Mesh system) and Cooler Master 280mm AIO due to already having the Commander Pro for 6 fans. At the end of the day I can't actually see the cooler behind the rad on the side bracket and am pleased with performance - lowest temps I've seen since building this sysytem, was previously using a Noctua NH-U9S which I've kept in case this AIO bricks. EDIT 1: I should mention the motherboard (Gigabyte Aorus X570I) has only 2 USB headers - 1 for case and 1 for other components. I've the NR200 front panel USB plugged into larger and Commander Pro plugged into smaller.
  2. Hello. I have purchased a H60 hydro cooler a month ago and the pump has this constant buzzing, louder than my 3 fans in the system. I am aware of the fact that it has an operating noise, i just don't know if this buzzing is normal, it quite annoys me. I have tried to move the radiator but it doesn't help. If this noise is normal i'll just accept is, it is my first. With no fans operating, i measure the noise at around 40dB. Here's a video i took: [ame]https://youtu.be/RcW9N4yxl4k[/ame] Thank you for your answers.
  3. New here! I installed the H115i Pro XT cooler in my PC about a week ago, and I've noticed since I installed it that the pump emits a humming/buzzing sound. It doesn't sound like trapped air that I've experienced with AIO's in the past, nor does it sound particularly unhealthy. It's just, there. And it's louder than all the case fans. It sounds similar to the hum one might expect from a refrigerator, and can be heard with the quiet, balanced and extreme performance settings. My question is, is this the normal operating sound to be expected from this product? Or should it be fairly inaudible on the lower performance settings? Thanks in advance! :D:
  4. Hello everyone, So I have a new XD3 pump. Whenever I boot my PC or wake it, the pump runs at full speed before settling down to my speed set in iCue. That being said, this XD3 is replacing a XD5 I had and that pump didn't create any noise on boot/wake. I have it plugged into port #6 on my Commander Pro, and also tried setting the fan type as "4 pin" and "auto" to no avail. Auto makes it run at roughly medium speed for about 5 seconds, while 4 pin makes it run at max speed for about 1 second. How can I set the pump to make no noise when booting/waking like my XD5 did? Thanks.

  6. Hello, I'd like too use a Distroplate with a pump by EKWB (Lian Li O11D Distro-Plate G1). So i wonder if i could setup the EKWB pump like a Corsair XD5 Pump in iCue (Like if the Liquid is getting hotter, the fans spin faster) Thanks

  8. Hi, I've just bought a new custom built gaming PC with the Corsair h115i Platinum cooling system and I realized that it's making a buzzing noise that comes from the pump. I'm pretty sure it's the pump because the noise comes from the motherboard around the CPU area and If I'm not mistaken CPU's don't make any noise. It's like an electric noise and I just can hear it when I open my case side panel window and put my ear close to it. I don't think that it's coil whine as it sounds very different and it's strange but it seems that when the PC is under load the noise stops or it is nearly imperceptible. Here's a video of the noise, it seems a lot louder in this video than in reality. I wonder if its something to worry about as the PC seems to work properly ,the temps are fine and as I said I can't hear it from the outside. If it's something to worry about I will claim the warranty to the shop that sold it to me. Here' the video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1--PAamcZLMg6oN0HDWtcqlQPZJnI0qmR/view?usp=drivesdk Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
  9. Hello, I have some discoloration with Corsair H100i RGB Platinum SE, when set to white, the color has a warmer, tan look then all of the other colors in the PC. Does the pump not support cooler whites is there an error in the pump, I cant remember this happening when it first arrived. [see attachments] Product link: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Hydro-H100i-PLATINUM-Radiator/dp/B07R6YLDDS/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=corsair+h100i+white&qid=1609091344&sr=8-1
  10. Hi everyone, I've turned on my first ever build and it seems to be working and sending me into the BIOS correctly :D :D :D :D. However I have a query before proceeding. I have a Corsair H150i RGB Pro XT installed as a side intake on my Lian Li 011D XL. As instructed by the manual it's connected to the CPU_FAN header and I'd like to keep it this way as according to DevBiker's Cooling post this will allow for a warning to occur if the pump does end up failing. My motherboard is Maximus XI Hero and on BIOS 1401 I understand that the Q-fan control must be disabled or should be set to constant 100% speed so that the pump operates correctly (or is this irrelevant with the Pro series??) My Q is, is it fine to change these fan settings before installing Windows? Sorry if this is a silly Q, just wanna make sure as I'm complete beginner with this. Thanks for any help!
  11. Hi all, Have edited this request to be more to the point: I'm trying to install my H150i RGB PRO XT pump on to my CPU but am finding it difficult to position it with the Corsair logo facing the correct direction. I saw some posts saying it doesn't matter which way the logo goes but I called Corsair and they said you must install with the logo facing up. As can be seen from the attached photos, the pump does just about fit with the logo the right way up but I'm holding it with some force here. When I release the pressure, the pump head naturally springs 90 degrees clockwise so that the top of the logo faces to the right. I think the side intake position is causing the issue. Is this normal and is it fine to still screw the pump onto the CPU with logo facing up and let the screws hold the tension? Do my tubes look fine or are the bends too sharp? Thank you for any help
  12. Hello everyone. Recently (less than 3 months ago) I bough a H100i RGB SE. All my build has been white since the start and so the RGB from cooler, motherboard, ram etc. But out of nowhere the pump from the cooler turned yellow-ish and right now is full yellow-orange (picture attached). Is this a software problem, windows or what? Thanks for the help!
  13. Bonjour, j'ai depuis 1 an le watercooling Corsair H100I platinium 240mm. Et depuis un moment je constate un bug du rgb mais UNIQUEMENT sur le contour de la pompe. C'est à dire que le rgb fait des couleurs vraiment dégueulassent (uniquement le contour, c'est à dire la partie autour du truc gris sur la pompe). Ce que je ne comprend pas c'est que le reste du rgb fonctionne parfaitement que ce soit les 2 ventilo et même le logo au milieu de la pompe. On a l'impression qu'une sur-couche de couleur "rouge" vient se rajouter par dessus le rgb configuré sur le software Icuie. En parlant de iCuie, je pensais au début que ca venait de lui, mais finalement même quand il n'est pas lancé, le bug apparait. Je précise que il y a quelques mois le bug arrivait aléatoirement mais assez souvent, et le bug est résolue quand je rallume le pc, sauf que 30min ou 1h après il réapparait. J’ai ajouté des ventilo dans ma config il y a 1 mois environ, (3LL120 de corsair + 3 bequiet) qui d’ailleurs marchent très bien, le rgb n’a aucun bug. Je précise qu’au moment ou j’ai monté les nouveaux ventilos, j’en ai profité pour faire un bon câble management donc j’ai débranché quelques trucs et donc la pompe etc… Et le fait de l’avoir débranché / rebranché ca a eu un effet positif j’ai l’impression. Sauf que il y a 1 semaine le bug redevient récurrent et je ne sais plus quoi faire. -Je me demande si ca vient pas de la pompe qui est défectueuse? Merci d'avance pour votre aide.
  14. Hello everyone ! I just finished to rebuild my pc into the 680X case. Everythingis pretty ok. But the pump make an heavy noise everytime she goes above 60% load (wich mean almost 90% of the time since i have a Gpu/Cpu loop and i use alot of heavy 3D programs). I heard about some noise on other post, but these are really far away from what i'm experiencing. For information i cleaned ALL the loop before installing pump, there is no leak and absolutly everything is ok (still a lil air in the loop but seriously nothing that would allow my pump to make that noise). It's like a squeak that can be hear at more than 10/20m from the pc with a headset. Need help. Thank you.
  15. [*]What CPU and is it overclocked? I7-9700K no [*]How quickly does the coolant ramp up and how quickly does it cool down? The CPU idles around 70C and can hit 100C within a minute at 15% load. [*]What is the ambient temperature? 24C [*]Is the cooler intake or exhaust? I tried both and they seem the same. It's currently intake. [*]What GPU are you using? (Hint: Fill out your system details fully.) GTX1660 SUPER I replaced the thermal paste. The pump is plugged into my H370N mobo's cpu_fan. I followed these instructions (admittedly only after I thought the pump had failed, 5 weeks after I made the PC) https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=168801&t=168801
  16. So I will be getting a new PC and have thought of making a custom loop with Hydro X. I will be using the Evolv X case from Phanteks, but I selected the 500D RGB SE because Corsair doesn’t yet have a model for the Evolv X. So I made a configuration, went to the modeling and it spits out a 54mm radiator thickness (which is fine) but then has the new XD3 pump. That’s good and all, but I want the XD5 and a 33mm 360mm radiator and I can’t change the pump! Like, I click on the pump section and I can’t change it to a XD5 pump. And I’ve done this configuration before (3700X and a 2080 Super) and I forgot the price but now I don’t know how to get my XD5 configuration back. Is there a way to fix this? Can I just swap out the pumps in the cart (I have clearance) and be good to go? And also Corsair should add the option to change the pump/res for those who want a big one like me.
  17. I have had this system for probably 4-5 years and I haven't been watching the temperatures, but the other day I was. At idle the CPU is running around 22C and the H80i around 27C (I assume that is the temperature of the water). Reported using Corsair Link 4. See my profile for info. Running stock speed. Yes, the water is hotter... at idle! When I push the CPU with Prime95 (max heat) the CPU goes up to 90C but the water temperature (well what Corsair Link outputs) only goes up to about 34C. For tests like this I have the fan on max (about 1500rpm) and the pump on performance (about 3000rpm) just to be the best cooling. I was confused how the water could be so COOL but the CPU so HOT! Since the water temperature changes and the fan speed and pump speed changes (using Corsair Link) I assume those are working. Well, I can clearly see the fan spinning. One tube is warmer than the other so I assume there is some water circulation. Perhaps not ideally working, but nothing obvious... My only conclusion was that the water pump cooler wasn't mounted well on the CPU. Got some Artic MX-4 and removed and replaced it. Temps pretty much the same. When replacing the cooler I noticed some sloshing of water and was concerned, but I'm assuming (?) this is standard. The pump is quiet so I don't believe it's pumping some air or cavitating. While perhaps not a top of the line water cooler, I'd expect it to do better than this and when I built the system I assume I had much better temps because I do remember testing it! Any insights would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
  18. Hi All, I bought a new H115i RGB Platinum last week. Once installed it was clear there was a large anount of air stuck in the pump. When running on quiet profile in iCUE this was audible over all my case fans. The noise sounds like a constant ticking or crackling. As other have suggested I took the cooler off and gave it a good tap and shake to try and dislodge any air pockets. This did not help. I then returned the unit to amazon and they sent me a new one. Upon installing the new one it had exactly the same problem. Quiet mode and balanced mode profiles were extremely noisy with the pump turning silent when put in extreme mode. Both myself and my father have owned over 6 AIO's from corsair and never experienced this level of noise from a pump. Again as others have suggested this noise goes away when the case is layed flat.I am mounting the 280mm rad in the front of the case (275R) with the tubes at the top (higher than the pump). Can anyone give me any confidence in buying a 3rd cooler? I suspect amazon wouldnt let me return a 3rd one. I was temped to buy the H115i Pro XT but I am pretty sure its the exact same CoolIT pump design and could have a similar problem. Thanks in advance for any advice or thoughts!
  19. Hello, I just bought a H115i Platinum RGB yesterday from Best Buy, and installed it (pump is right-side up with the word Corsair being readable in normal pc orientation. Radiator is on inside top of the PC). When my PC first boots up, there is no pump noise at all, which is great. However, as soon as iCUE starts, there begins a rattling/bubbling noise from the pump. It really sounds like turbulent flow with air bubbles coming out of solution. Furthermore, in iCUE, any attempts at changing the pump's performance profile between "quiet" and "extreme" do not affect the noise nor the reported RPM of the pump from iCUE, even after a reboot. I have tried laying my pc on its side (non glass side), and for some reason that makes the noise go away. However that isn't a good permanent solution for my desk. I then discovered that if I just don't run iCUE at all, the pump doesn't make the noise. However, I like iCUE because I also use a corsair Mouse and Keyboard with lighting and keybinding effects. So I have settled on my current temporary solution, I connected the rad fan headers straight to my mobo for direct control, and I unplugged the USB header for the pump so that iCUE cannot see the AIO unit at all. This leaves me with a pump and fans that are in rainbow mode constantly, although running a stress test seems to imply that the pump is at least performing well in its default setting. My question is this: Is there anything I can do to make the pump play nicely with iCUE? Will this problem go away with time? Or is this going to require an RMA? Thanks in advance
  20. Hi, i wanted to silence my Pentium g4560 (no OC, 54W TDP), so i bought a H45 and connected the pump to pwm. I replaced the fan with a cheap coolermaster spinning at around 600rpm, so i can't hear the fans it in a totally silent room 50cm away from my pc at my desk. But the Pump of the H45 makes a really "loud" drone noise, like a vibrating dvd burner on a wooden table, but a bit quieter. It goes near silent if i clock the reported 4500rpm to around 3k-3,5k rpm at my bios. Temps are with stockfan H45 and new fan on H45 at full RPM around 40° C at prime tests, and around 46° C with intel boxed fan. Idle temps in all setups around 30° C, with nearly 30° C inside case and 27° C room temp, so the H45 has to cool very little heat away. Because the H45 have a separate connector with only the pump connected (i think, or is there any chipset/board inside?) and no LED, USB or anything, and the fan(s) on separate connections: Is it safe (for the H45, not the CPU or other components) to powerdown the pump to round about 60-70% of the speed it gets on 12V? Does it increase wearing-out in a very high level (destroying pump in way less than 24 months)? Or is all that talk about "stay on 12V ever!" only for the other Corsair Hydro AIOs with a lot more compenents on pump-power-cable, like usb, led-lights, controlling board? If not, do you know if that loud sound is a valid RMA reason in germany?
  21. I am hoping someone can help. I have had my current system since December 2016 with no problems to speak of outside of some software glitches. Spec is in my profile. I had a problem a week ago where the system would not boot past BIOS as the CPU fan was not functioning. I have a H100i V2 watercooler on the CPU and plugged in the CPU fan header. I took the side of the case off and the fans were running. I left it a while and rebooted to find everything working fine, but then the CPU temp rapidly climbed to 99 Celsius, but I had no system shutdown and the system seems stable. I have had occasional grinding/scratching sounds from the water pump but it seems to be working although the sensor generally settling between 45 celsius and 55 celsius. Neither of the tubes in and out of the waterblock are particularly hot. All the case fans are going nuts at times, rapidly changing from whisper quiet to full power and then back again. I have contacted Scan who I bought the system off for help, but they are closed due to Covid 19 and already have a rapidly growing waiting list of tickets for maintenance requests. I thought about buying a replacement H100i, but am unsure if it is this that is starting to fail. A problem with the CPU or just a temp sensor that is causing errors? I have no spare parts to swap out the CPU or watercooler to check if they are functioning.
  22. Hi, I'm new to the forums and had a question about the H115i Pro vs H115i Pro XT coolers. I've done a bunch of research already but haven't been able to find all the detailed information so was hoping some of the knowledgeable members of this forum could weigh in. It's confusing, because the corsair website currently makes the Pro RGB and Pro RGB XT look almost identical, yet both are still available. If this question has already been asked somewhere here before admin feel free to delete. As far as I can tell, the main features are: H115i Pro: - Asetek 6th gen pump (1100rpm, 2160rpm, 2850rpm) - Single zone RGB - 1100 RPM Max speed fans - Limited availability because being replaced by XT H115i Pro XT: - Basically pump hardware from Platinum but lacking the RGB (LL?) fans & other RGB features - So, CoolIT pump (assuming the same as Platinum?? i.e. 2000rpm, 2400rpm, 2900rpm) - Black Pump Head I care most about idle noise (do lots of productivity work in addition to gaming) and would be willing to sacrifice a few delta degrees C if it means less noise. As a result I've bought one of the seemingly last remaining H115i Pro's left in my country because I've heard the 1100RPM mode is significantly quieter than the 2000RPM min speed of the Platinum. I'm wondering, can anyone confirm if the XT runs the same pump speeds & has the same louder pump as the Platinum? I'm not too concerned about the improved RGB on the XT, but I do like the black pump head! I haven't unboxed the Pro I've bought yet and am still in the return window in the case I want to switch to the XT. Hopefully someone can help me decide between Pro and Pro XT. Thanks!
  23. I have every thing working except my temp sensors on the commander pro. I have tried resetting it and changing out the temp sensors. I have the pump/res sensor in #1 and three other temp sensors placed through out my pc case. None of the sensors are reporting. I have a 9900k/Asrock PG9 mobo. I figure for the loop to run the most efficiently I need these temps to be reporting. Oh and another questiong does anyone know what the max rpm is on the pump for the XD5? I don't want to run it too high. I may just have a bad commander pro. I noticed there are alot of issues being reported.
  24. Been googling around for nearly 2 hours now and found several people with the same issue, but it seems it's not quit the same. For me the RGB works (rainbow effect) and the fans/pump is fully functional, but it's not showing up in iCUE for me to alter the colors. Is there any solution to this issue, or is the pump type just not compatible with iCUE? Note that I do not have the commander pro, but everything works so I can't see that being the issue.
  25. Hello there, I installed a new H60 (2018 edition) into my system (MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard, i7 6700K is the CPU). The unit is installed in the normal orientation, with two Noctua fans in push/pull, exhausting warm air out of the back of the case. Picture: https://imgur.com/WxgegpJ. The reason I'm going for a 120 mm AIO is because the case itself is quite cramped. Thermally, everything seemed okay. My temperature peaks stay below 80C, even after running the most demanding stress tests (Prime95, Realbench, ...). The pump block, however had been making a sound I can only describe like an old HDD. A non-rhythmic rattle, like you're reading data off an old drive. It's not a continuous monotonous buzz, it's more ... sparkly? My English language knowledge fails me here :) I double checked the connections, wiggled the tubes a bit, tried different SATA power headers, ... The RPM reported for the pump is 4050-4100, which seems desirable. There's no way to adjust RPM speed for the pump on this new H60 model anyway (probably for good reason). Since I thought this noise wasn't normal and I must have gotten a defective product, I sent the unit in for replacement with my retailer, and got a new one the next day. After installing the newly arrived unit, in the same way, I get the same noise. To be 100% sure it's not from another source, I went into BIOS and manually stopped all my fans - it's definitely the pump. Tilting my case to the right at about 45 degrees gets rid of the problem, which increases my suspicion it's air bubble related. Anyone with similar experiences? Should I just wait and let it "settle"? I've read things about getting the unit out and shaking it all about? Letting the case run on it's side (isn't that ... dangerous?))? I know the H60 isn't exactly the flagship cooler, but I still paid good money for it - would like to have it running silently/
