Do YOU have H100i / H80i problems? LOOK HERE before posting

Recommended Posts

There is a known issues with AI suite and corsair link working together..

hmm really? Like this morning I turned on my computer and some how my USB port was detecting the pump so I updated the firmware and it worked. But, as soon as my computer went to sleep and I woke it up. My fans on my cooler stopped working again. now I have them plugged back into the motherboard. Even after reboot, the motherboard (sabertooth z77) isn't detecting the Corsair Link again. Also, if there is a know issue with AI suite and corsair not working together, is there fix for it? or would a BIOs update fix it?

Hello random question I suppose. But I could not find much information about this.

I am going to get the H80i sometime soon. And my build is going to get filled with Noctua's, but because I am on a budget. I was thinking to just use the H80i with 1 NF-F12 in push for the time being. I know that pull is better for cleaning purpose, but I want to see the Noctua fan when I look in my case! Push or pull doesn't mather for tempatures as far as I could find. 

 

Edit: ok, im blind - found a Linus video that I watched before aswell. Where he shows the tempature diffrence is about 10C with push/pull compared to pull or push only. Ofcourse still not even close to the H100i ^^

 

So I assume I will get another NF-F12 asap! And not OC to high before that.

Hello All.  I came across some information that I thought would help this thread out so I thought I should add it here, in the interest of keeping everybody in the community informed about the H100i or H80i. 
I recently got the H100i to add to my new PC build.  After completing the build and installing the Corsair Link software I discovered that the I could not "see" the H100i pump, or fans in the Corsair Link dashboard.  Making it not possible for me to customize the fan speeds, change the pump color, etc.   I contacted Corsair support with my specific parts and Operating system (Windows 8.1 Pro) and they replied informing me that: "We are aware that our software is not compatible with the official release of Windows 8.1 and we are working out a solution."   So until the "Solution" is found and the updated firmware released the H100i and H80i cannot take advantage of the Corsair Link features.  (IE. customize fan speeds, Monitor fan speeds, change pump led colors).   This does not mean the H100i/H80i  cannot be used with Windows 8.1 systems.  It should still work and function to cool your CPU, and with some "modifications" you can get the Corsair Link software working on Windows 8.1.  (more info on the Modifications here:http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118618)

I can share that using the option to disable the USB in Device Manager, Reboot the system, then re-enable the USB worked fine for me.
Those of you out there considering the H100i/H80i for your system, you definitely should check out the links if you want to use the latest Windows operating system if you intend to get the most out of your Corsair H100i/H80i.

Hope this helps those out there with the same issues.

Good news,  sort of.  Corsair has released a new version of their Corsair Link software for the H100i that does resolve some issues for some systems that are using Windows 8.1.  After following the instructions for the new install on their forums and trying it myself I can report that the end results was a mixed bag of good, and not so good.  I was able to "see" and change my Pump LEDs, however I still could not see my fans.  After reading thru the forums, this result was not too unexpected.  The guys at corsair are trying to fix up their software to work with all systems, but are not quite all the way there.  For any out there wishing to try out the latest software you can find it here: http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118617

My advice to you all is read up first, ask questions, and proceed after making sure you know what version of the Corsair Link software you are currently using before you uninstall and install the latest.  (just in case you need to go back to the version you were previously using)  Good luck to you.

Found a work around of sorts! This is for Windows 8.1 users, and it allowed me to gain control of my entire H80i! These are my steps for anyone wanting to replicate;

 

1)Installed Corsair link from downloads section Here (2.4)

2) Uninstalled program and driver(both in Programs and features) after H80i was not detected

3)Did a restart

4)Installed the beta version (2.5.5) provided by Sym above (here)

5)Was asked to update my firmware by the software when I opened it 

6) Realised that everything apart from my fans were detected- and my fans became very loud and spun too fast 

6)Uninstalled the software and driver (from Programs and features)

7)Installed the original (non beta software -2.4) again. here

8) Open the software - and BOOM there was the entire H80i - including the fans. Turned down the fan speed to Quiet mode , and it was happy days!

 

Must say this was using an Asus motherboard , FX 8320, with Windows 8.1 installed. (Also - because this was mentioned before - I have AI Suite installed , but it didn't seem to cause any problems)

Yeah , I did just incase - as the Link software automatically reinstalls it. As for the firmware; if it prompts you with a firmware update , then it is compatible with you cooler.

Thanks for the additional tips Coswar. Your tips helped me as well.  After going back to the original Non beta software version of Corsair Link,  all of my fans and temps showed.  With the exception of the motherboard temps, which did show under the beta, but the fans did not.  I'm more inclined to go with the options of controlling the fans and seeing their status, than the motherboard temps.  BTW I'm on a ASUS brand as well.  The Maximus Formula VI, with AI Suite installed.  Thanks again for the tip.  I'll probably stay with this until they come out with an official Windows 8.1 version of the software where they've worked out all the bugs.  :)

Do i have to have the corsair link connected to the motherboard? I am gonna use a lamptron Fan Controller

no

only if you want to change the colour of the LED

but then you can unplug it again after changing that

So far I have updated the firmware, and stopped the "always on at full" situation. The problem that remains is that the Corsair Link software doesn't recognize the H100i unless I unplug it from the motherboard and plug it back in a different USB slot. It doesn't matter which slot its in when I boot, so far this repluging is required every time I want to use Corsair Link.

 

Ugh! Anyway, is there a Bios setting or something I can do to stop having to do this? 

 

I have the H100i, with a Asus Z87 Pro motherboard.

I'm having the same issue. Link is able to read all the settings for my other fans but nothing for H100i. I've tried everything I can think of. Anyone have any ideas?

Another update from our friends at Corsair.  They have updated their Corsair Link Beta Software.  As of 4/17/2014 - Corsair Link Software Update BETA Version 2.6.5214 is now available.  The link below should bring you to their main page.  This Beta Version may be better for those of you out there that are having problems with the software working with Windows 8, and 8.1.  I have installed the latest version using the instructions on the Corsair forum, and so far so good.  Knock on wood.  All my device temps, and fans are showing, even my Asus Maximus Formula VI motherboard temps are now showing. But I don't want to sound too exited, lest I anger somebody, and my whole system crashes.  Good Luck to you if you decide to upgrade to the latest.  I hope it can help fix some of your issues.  In the interest of using the latest software I'm re posting the link here; http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118618

If you having problems with you Corsair LED changing colors after Reboot try this 

 

Pick the color you want 

 

For example: R:255 G:0 B:0 

 

and instead of putting the Green and Blue bars to 0%

 

SET IT AS 1

 

Like this R:255 G:1 B:1

 

 

1% will not affect the color you picked

 

After reboot, the color you pick should come up.

Hi everone,

I just want to say that the h100i is a peace of "govno".(translate govno)

This is the 7th time i had to rma the unit.

I just got the new unit from corsair a few days ago (First i bought a h100 then two times i get a new replacment h100, after that i started geting h100i 4 times) and it already problems started.

Now i have a new problem that i didnt see before.

First the fans started dying but this is "normal" and i am already used to it but the real problem is when the cpu starts to get hot the unit disconects and conects every few seconds and the led lights start to blink.

I was just playing battlefield 3 then it started again and it is realy anoing because every few seconds i hear the noise like i just unpluged the usb and pluged it in again.

 

BTW i had the few units that i could not control the fans and the lights on win8 and there is a registry fix for that.

You have to edit the registry value :

HKLM/SYSTEM/CurentControlSet/Enum/USB/VID_1B1C&PID_0C04/Device Parameters

There you need to change four parameters to from 1 to 0 (AllowIdleIrpInD3, DeviceSelectiveSuspend, EnhancedPowerManagmentEnabled, SelectiveSuspendEnabled) and then reboot.

I hope this helps.

Download the H80i firmware from here:

http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=115836

 

Then go in corsair link and go to options>devices>update firmware

And update your H80i

Could someone tell me if you need to keep the Link cable plugged in for the LED to stay the colour you set it? Can you uninstall Corsair link software and it'll keep the colour you set it? Cheers

 

 

no, you only need the cable if you want to monitor the pump rpm, or actively customize the settings

if you unplug it, it should stay on the last settings you saved

I also would like to uninstall the Corsair Link and still be able to keep my Corsair Logo Led in Blue at all times, keeping my Black & Blue Theme goin', is this even possible???

The reason why I want to uninstall it : I don't really need it, I have a 6FC setup and I have the EVGA Precision setup for my GPU's.

Yup just set it yo blue in corsair link and then save, close, and uninstall. You can also remove the internal USB cable at that point.

Settings will be saved to your H100i.
