Default Corsair Link programm doesn't update HDD temps

I have realised after 3 days that the programm doesn't update my HDD temps
when I am starting my PC my HDDs are room temp (23°C)

I have a 140mm Prolimatech Blue Vortex in my 700D cooling my HDDs, even with this good fan, the HDDs should have a higher temps after some time

Paralell to the Corsair Link Software I am checking the temps of my system with "CPUID Hardware Monitor"
and this programm show me temps of my HDDs about 29°C
and they can get higher and lower

Additional to this i checked the temps with my hands and they are not 23°C like Corsair Link Programm shows me

If I restart the programm the temps are updated but wouldn't change until I restart one time more

Pls Corsair update the programm so that it can update also the HDDs temps

thx vullprofiman

Thank you for noticing that as I also went to check what my temps were on the Corsair Link software and compared them to CPUID Hardware Monitor Pro and noticed a 10c difference from my HD readings. It only shows me 2 HD devices when I have a total of 4 which have S.M.A.R.T. Only my 2 storage drives are being shown on my CPUID temp assuming it can't read the veloci-raptors because they are in raid 0 but still, the readings on CPUID and Corsair Link are still way off.

Interesting.. I did a virus scan as well as running Crystal DiskMark on a specific drives and graphed the whole process of all my hard drives (all have S.M.A.R.T. enabled) Threw in tracking the temp changes on my GPU just to use as a control..All temps remained flat at 21 or 22c. The GPU on the other hand did climb up in temps. CrystalDiskInfo. showed my drives between 33-38c. I pushed the drive bay fans on my 800D to max to see if it would budge the temps on the HD they didn't. When I closed Link and re-booted it, the hard drive temps were in line with the info. from CrystalDiskInfo. Hmm... not good..not good. (I'd expect a few teathing problems with a new product...but the list is starting to get long.. You require any additional info from us Corsair trouble this issue ? Let us know and we will try to provide.

Yep, I posted this a bit ago too. Discovered about ten minutes after booting up and no temp change. You can fully exit the program and re-start it, but it only makes the first read, nothing in real time.

This was brought up on another thread and we are looking into this and it is not clear if there is something that we can address; but we are looking into this and will post an update when it is available.
