Ok so i've become a bit obsessive over both my CPU and GPU temps as this is the first major rig I've invested alot of money into. So the Cosair emblem LED on over the CPU has stopped working and the Corsair Link 2 program does not pick up the Pump on its readings. I'm going to update the program when I get home as that has seem to fix that problem for other people. My main concern is that my GTX 780 ACX jumps to around 70 while playing BF3 (settings on ultra). I noticed after i touched the side of my case and could feel the heat. It was what I would think would be fairly extreme for heat coming off a computer. Please dont think i'm trying to troll if my concerns are misplaced, again this is the first rig i've built like this and i'm just scared to break some parts i really don't want to replace. Thanks for your time.




-H100i pump not showing on software

-is ~70c to hot for GPU while playing battlefield 3 on ultra.

-thanks again.

70c is absolutely fine and if there has been a lot of pump failures with h100i's but not sure if it has failed or not

70 degrees on your GPU is perfectly fine. GPU Boost 2.0 defaults at 80 degrees which is a safe temperature to max out on.

GPUs are fine below 95c, and I'm not sure about your h100i, if the temps are fine then I don't think it's any immediate threat, but you should contact Corsair about it.

GPU temps are fine, because of GPU boost 2.0 it should go up to 80C

Thanks for all the answers. Really appreciate it. As for the Cosair it looks like the firmware update worked however there is still no LED light even the the profile is set up for the color to scale with CPU temp. Its worth noting that the fans have continued to function as well as the pump as based on the ASUS utility that monitors the CPU temp. The problem appears to lie solely in the LED functionality as well as the LINK2 systems ability to read the pump functions. Thanks again guys
