    Yeah I believe he will do that.

    PC restarts, but doesn't...

    @Hiya! it happened again, i've got a spare PSU here but it's a bronze level one, the one I have is gold. My event viewer flagged up these errors round about the time it restarted and fans went into overdrive. DistributedCOM again, multiple times.

    Corsair Void RGB Wireless battery issues

    yeah I did, he's got it back now. Says I have first refusal when he gets it back, so if its cheaper then brand new, then could be worth thinking about.

    Corsair Void RGB Wireless battery issues

    Well I don't know that, I would hope that was not the case.

    Corsair Void RGB Wireless battery issues

    Not sure he still has it, think he may have purchased it from a store that went bust. Either way, I think i'm going to get my money back and buy a new one.
  7. Hi I acquired a headset from a friend, he hardly used them as he won another pair. The ones in question are the Corsair Void RGB Wireless ones. Problem I am having is that the thing doesn't seem to charge, I've done all the steps listed here - http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?p=1001719#post1001719 Left them charging for around 6 hours tonight while I was out, the light was showing amber, and it was still showing amber when I got home, so I thought I would see how they were doing. iCue said they were at 76%, but within a minute this dropped to 26% and 2 minutes later they shut down with no battery. Any ideas? @Corsair Nick

    Replace chassis fans

    No that's great. Actually I do have a Corsair product issue, but its with headsets, so I will raise a different post.

    Replace chassis fans

    Is there a primer on tags?

    Replace chassis fans

    Right, sorry not used tags like this before, I don't know who to tag. This look like what I would need. https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categories/Products/CORSAIR-LINK/Commander-PRO-—-iCUE-RGB-Lighting-and-Fan-Controller/p/CL-9011110-WW

    Replace chassis fans

    Well I'm not against the idea of replacing all 3 fans that came with the case and go for 2 corsair rgb ones as I already have the corsair cooler with fans, although they are not RGB, but I like iCUE and I have other corsair products, so it would make sense. My board has CHA_FAN1 and CHA_FAN2 headers I can plug in to.

    Replace chassis fans

    Actually, that could be done without doing much ripping out, just detach them from the fan controllers, and don't bother using those slide controls on the top.

    Replace chassis fans

    Just to verify, could I connect new fans to the board, and the fan controls to this circuit board?

    Why are you a computer enthusiast?

    Why am I a computer enthusiast? Well, it probably started when I had a Commodore Vic 20, so I always loved games, then I had the Spectrum 128k +2 and then the Atari ST FM. Systems sadly relegated to the archives. But the seeds were sown. I saw the future was in digital technology and positioned myself career wise to take advantage of that. Got my 1st PC in 1993 and my first taste of building with components. Teletext card anyone? I then moved over to what some would say the dark side and got my 1st of 5 iMacs, and that is when my career as a web designer/front end developer was born. I love technology, love how lives can be made that little bit simpler with smart devices, and get frustrated when the tech is not available. I enjoy the anticipation of something new, ground breaking and science fiction meets science fact. But most of all I have a need to put something cool in all facets of my life, hence why I have arrived at almost full circle with my first ever gaming machine. Their is a downside to this obsession. I want graphics cards that cost 2 grand, why? Because they exist. I want more led synced lights then the mother ship on Close Encounters of the Third Kind has, why? Because it’s available. As people enjoyed paintings from the Renaissance. Increased productivity in the Industrial Age, made money through capitalism. I want to lead a smarter fun life through technology. And that is why I am a computer enthusiast.

    Ok I’ll have to make my peace with the chassis RGB setup.
