That is one of the main reasons I like my Intel unit......no software.

Gary, if you called Corsair and emailed them the pics you have I bet they would try to make it right.

Jack I think a washer with a big enough hole to fit over the backplate nuts would be too big on the OD and short something out.

Kelly I just emailed them a picture and explanation of the whole mess. I plan to follow up with a call Tuesday, closed Mon for prez day, a holiday created to give gov't workers a day off for no reason.

I think I found some good solutions.

1. Forget the Link software.
2. Don't connect the fans to the pump.
3. Connect the fan with a Y-connector to CPU_Fan
4. Connect the pump to CPU_OPT
5. Throw away the USB dongle cable.

IT works well this was and the fans and pump both change speed based on CPU temps.

You can only run the fan's full speed that way though mate otherwise it will effect the pump speed. Or are you able to control the speed of the 2 headers separately?

No I have one setting for both CPU fan headers but HWinfo reports fans at 1176 and CPU_OPT at 2177. They do idle down to 40% of full speed, that's what I set them for in BIOS. Then they speed up to the 92% of full speed at a CPU temp of 62C.

Good news is I also filed down the mounting hole things and temps now are 20C lower running IBT Standard with same settings. I hit 93C before, not only 73C @ 4200.

Yeah that 2177 is about right for the pump speed.
My head wasn't working fully yet when I posted before. sorry! I totally forgot that the pump is powered via a sata connection and that the cable going to the cpu opt header is just for the pump rpm

Great result on those temp's chap

Great job Gary.
I like you got rid of the Corsair Link and it's program. Nothing but a ball of shot.
I went to the Corsair Forum and did all the updates and tricks and it was still a bag of worms.
You might want to check for the Corsair Link program again. It leaves little pieces all over the system.

What fans are you using with the cooler?
