Optical Drive # 1

  1. Finished building custom loop few days ago but noticed in benchmarks like Port Royal Stress Test, Metro Exodus and Gears 5 all giving lower average FPS. I don't get this as my now water cooled RTX 3090 (Zotac) is running perfectly fine on the temperature side of things, as it's 55-60 on load which sounds fine. Coolant temp is around 40 degrees on load... Anyone know what's going on?
  2. DISCLAIMER Disassembly of your keyboard will in fact void your Corsair warranty so proceed at your own risk with this knowledge. The only reason I decided to do this is because SPILL DAMAGE also voids your Corsair warranty!!! I do not recommend this for anyone experiencing any issues that are not tied to accidental damage and an already voided warranty!!! TL:DR, TL:DR Keyboard spill, bathed disassembled keyboard in 70% Isoprop Alcohol tub, keyboard works again. TL:DR * The italicized text in my list are steps that I took that did not contribute to repairing the keyboard, skip these! They're mostly an FYI, for the curious. * The bolded text in my list are steps that contributed to repairing the keyboard! The title says it all, my son was watching me play Mass Effect Andromeda. Mommy decided to give him, a 6 year old child, an adult cup filled to the brim with Chocolate Milk...you know the rest. Sadly, it wasn't a slight spill, the ENTIRE cup of chocolate milk spilled straight on to my 1 month old $200 K95 RGB Platinum. Well I am currently typing this with above mentioned keyboard and currently the only issues I note with it is that the "0" on the top number row and the "i" require a bit more pressure than usual to operate. I will detail below what didn't work and what did work for me! I hope this helps someone else out there! 1) After the initial spill in less that 2 seconds I unplugged my keyboard. This is key because you want to cut power IMMEDIATELY to the board. Any continued use of the keyboard while "shorting" is happening can result in permanent damage! 2) At this point, I turned my keyboard upside down and asked my wife for some help while I dried myself off. (Luckily humans do not suffer the same fate as keyboards from spilled milk :laughing:) 3)My initial goal was to get the board as dry as possible so I took all the keys off and let sit until dry. 4) After the board was dry I plugged it back in and everything was going haywire! After some online research this is due to the sugars inside of the spilled drink (chocolate milk). If the liquid had been water or something with less contaminants this may have been enough (difficult to say with certainty). 5) During my online research, I found someone that had a similar issue, they used High Percentage Isopropyl Alcohol in a spray bottle and doused the keyboard, after letting it dry they claimed this work. So I did this and let it dry on a fan over night. In the morning I grabbed the board and it had extremely sticky keys, meaning the milk inside the mx switches was still present. This would not suffice for me...since my warranty was voided I decided to go all out. 6) I completely disassembled the board down to the front plate with all of the Cherry MX switches and the PCB. (see below for some pointers for disassembly) I think I would of been able to pop the PCB off the switches but I was scared to damage the board so I left them connected together. 7) I grabbed the box the keyboard was shipped to me in and lined it with a trash bag using tape to hold it down. Then I placed the PCB/MX switch plate inside and poured the entire 16fl oz of 70% Isopropyl Alcohol inside and "bathed" the board. I did not scrub it with anything other than friction by "swooshing" all the liquid around like a washing machine. 8) After about 10 minutes of this I took the PCB/MX switch plate out, shook it, placed it on an old shirt face down and pointed a fan at it. I stood it up in different positions and angles throughout the drying time so the fan can hit as much of it as possible. 9) After only about 4 hours of drying I plugged it in and to my surprise it worked! (This is because alcohol dries a lot faster than water) The best part is even the RGB background lighting works which was my biggest worry! Dissassembly Pointers -There is a hidden screw on the top right of your board, this prevents the full removal of the back plate. It is under the cap to the right of the volume cylinder, be gentle I broke mine taking it off but had a spare from an old K95 version. -There aren't that many types of screws so it is very difficult to mix them up. -There is two small PCBs on top of the keyboard, one for your macros/profiles and one for the multimedia buttons, I fully removed both of these. I didn't take any pictures but if enough people ask I can do this entire process on my old K95 which also had spill damage. I can take pictures throughout the disassembly/cleaning process. /thread
  3. Hi everyone, ob YouTube I have seen a liquid fluid which had kind a glitter (very very small, so no sparkling...) in it. You could a very nice see how the liquid is flowing through the pipes in the GPU. Is there such a liquid from corsair and where can I get it? Thanks for your help!
  4. I've had the k95 for about 2 years now and have had no problems with it. Today, I spilled a small amount of water on it, causing it to glitch and send random inputs to the computer. After taking some time to dry it out and get rid of the water, it returned back to normal. Things were well and fine until it suddenly crashed (don't know if this is what actually happened but it looked like it). All of the LEDs stopped working (turned off) and no inputs were registered. Oddly enough, a hard reset fixes it for about 5-10 minutes, before it crashes again. This can be done repeatedly with the same result. Since it works after a hard reset, the mechanics mighy still be working at the very least. I tried forcing the hardware to update through ICUE and updating ICUE itself. I tried switching it to BIOS mode and back, which doesn't do anything. Hard resets give me a short amount of time. Sorry for misspellings or incorrect grammar, I'm on my phone.

    Corsair H90

    Hello! i have a h90 aio water cooler for my i5 7640x and for some reason a week ago the pump stoped working. Saturday i got back to my pc and decided to give it another try and i've taken the pump out and remounted it with the radiator in another position and now it works... Can you please tell me what is wrong with it? if i put it back in its original position it doesn't work and if i put it the way it is now, it works.... i find it pretty strange and i'm worried that something might happen to my pc.Also when i start the pc sometimes it gives me the water pump failure alert and after 2-3 seconds it stops as the pump works..
  6. Intel recently released their latest 7th generation Core processors, originally codenamed “Kaby Lake.” Leading the pack is the Core i7-7700k, the fastest of the current mainstream socket (LGA 1151) processors with the ability to overclock on supported motherboards with the Z270 (or previous Z170) chipset. If you’ve made the jump to the i7-7700k CPU for your new build, you’re probably wondering how to keep your CPU running cool without breaking the bank (especially since K-series processors don’t include a standard Intel heatsink cooler). We explore this question by putting our popular H100i v2 to the test to see how well it will fare when paired up with an Intel i7-7700K processor. Our Testbench • Intel i7-7700k • Asus Maximus IX Hero Z270 Motherboard • NVIDIA GTX 1080 • CORSAIR Crystal Series 460X Chassis • CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i v2 • CORSAIR Vengeance LED DDR4 32GB 2133Mhz • CORSAIR RM1000x 1000w PSU For consistent results, I ran the H100i v2 on the Performance profile across the board using our CORSAIR Link 4 Software. We tested three different clock speeds and observed the idle and load temperature of the CPU at each setting. To put the CPU under load, we used Prime95 as our main tool to determine how well our H100i v2 could handle the heat. We compared max temps after 10 minutes of run time, giving us a good idea of temperatures we could expect in a worst case scenario. As a point of reference, our ambient temperature at the time of testing was 22°C. Stock setting: idle max temp average 31°C i7-7700k @ 4.20GHz (Turbo Mode Off) Stock setting: load max temp average 58°C i7-7700k @ 4.20GHz (Turbo Mode Off) Turbo setting: load max temp average 69°C i7-7700k @ 4.50GHz (Turbo Mode On) OC Setting: load max temp average 83°C i7-7700k @ 4.80GHz (Overclocked) Comparing the max temperatures across all three runs, we noticed that not only does Kaby Lake run hotter than the previous generation Skylake processors (albeit, those older chips ran at a slower clockspeed), but that there was also a clear upward trend of +10°C for every +300 MHz increase to the CPU core clockspeed. With these observations in mind, it’s clear that the H100i v2 was able to manage the CPU temps within a reasonable range, making it a great pick for an overclocked Kaby Lake CPU. If you’re new to PC building or are well-established as a veteran system builder, the H100i v2 hits a performance sweet spot thanks to its easy installation and rock solid performance.
