Windows 7: Corsair H80i Problems

FWIW, I installed my pump first and then the rad. I should add mine was a simple installation, with just one fan and a small rad in the rear of the case.

Thanks, 50/50, I guess I'll have to do some trying on my own to see how best to go. My rad does have two fans.

I decided to install the pump first while the mobo was outside the case so I could make sure it went on perfectly. The mounting of the pump is more important than mounting the rad lol. Every instance is different though.

Good point Kelly. I have always added all I can to the board before committing to the case.

Well folks, I've come to the conclusion the H80i is a POS.
The Link software won't speed up the fans on any group or profile, they run at a constant speed.

On anything other than Balanced they run at full speed or about 2000RPM, both of which are horribly noisy. I have both grouped with AVG CPU temp too, but it ignores it. I can find NO combination that will let the fans run at a low speed at idle or ramp them up when under a load.

With the Link uninstalled fans appear to run about 500RPM, static speed. CPU gets to 90C with IBT standard, because, well the fans don't speed up! This is with no overclock or fiddling with Vcore.

I consider this cooler a no-go for me and won't be recommending it to anyone.

I will connect the 2 fans and pump to the board CPU fan headers and see what happens.

Click on the fan you want to control, that brings up the "config panel", choose "custom curve" plot the curve, save and exit, reboot.

How are the fans connected, to the pump or mobo?

Pump should have one usb connection and a single wire fan header that connects to the cpu fan header on the mobo. The fans connect to the pump.

What fan's are you using Gary? They need to be 4pin pwm fan's if running from the pump/fan controller.

As I said, no matter how I configure the fans, they do not change speed at all in any way whatsoever.

The fans that came with the bloody thing, they are connected via the supplied y-cable to the pump.
Sorry, Corsair is beginning, no they have, made me very dissatisfied.

Just a thought chap but when I just realised what you said before. "I have both grouped with AVG CPU temp too, but it ignores it." Due to how quickly the cpu can change temp you should set them up to change speed with the coolant temp.

I have no coolant temp, is it the same as H80i temp? I've done that, fans are at fixed speed.
