I've made some windows services earlier, and there's no reason why they have to write to disk all the time, or at all for that matter. I Windows service is just like any other program except that it doesn't have any GUI elements and isn't dependent on a desktop to "live" in. Except for logging, I can't see any reason the service would have to write to disk other than when configuration parameters were changed. I can only speculate, but it seems than that they might have used some file or files as "communication" between the GUI and the service, and that would be a slow and bad solution SSD or not. There are many ways to communicate in Windows, but I would stick to a simple TCP protocol.

It's impossible for me to specify a rpm above 4000 for any of the "Points" for a custom curve. If I do so by typing in a number, it's immediately changed to 4000 or something right below.

That's strange, one of my fans have these points:
1: 20C, 605 rpm
2: 25C, 1009 rpm
3: 28C, 1217 rpm
4: 34C, 1619 rpm
5: 50C, 1995 rpm
At 33,9C it runs at 1230-1260, at 34C it runs at 1630-1660. Even the "crosshair" isn't aligning with the line except for at the "points". The fan is a PWM fan if that matters.

It was ment as a suggestion for Corsair. I (obviously) don't know anything about the deal they've made with the software developers, but I would think Corsair would be the ones to decide this since the software is "sold" with the hardware and not by itself.
