Corsair H80i Problems

Got a Corsair H80i installed on a ASUS P8Ztt-V Pro board with a 3770K, all stock settings except for RAM set to specs.
Connected the Corsair Link dingle berry cable and fans to the pump Y-connector.
I downloaded the Link software from the Corsair site so I assume it's the newest version. Apparently the light on the pump is supposed to change color too....nope.

Is this what it's supposed to look like?

You need to "drag" the item in the left panel to the case. You configure the RGB with the right panel tabs. It should look like this.

What's RGB? Being graphics oriented it means Red/Green/Blue to me.

After dragging the items on the left.

Exactly that is the color control you use those to change the hue

If it worked for me, Antec uses the same software as Thermaltake's, from Asetek. Corsair's is some ******* backwards stuff.

Do you know if the installed properly and is the pump working? You should have a lot more info showing on the main screen, Coolant temp, cpu temp,cpu activity,pump speed and temp as well as the led and fan speed's.
If it was me I'd just uninstall it, reboot and reinstall if you haven't already. The only problem I ever had with Link is some devices get duplicated at time and the original icons stay but with no reading. So I have to delete the old and create a new profile now and then.
Which version number of Link are you running? Mine is 2.4.5110

RGB is the red/green/blue color from the pump led you asked about.

It appears you have a bad installation as you are not getting any reading. Link2 should show the h2o pump speed and temp, cpu temp, gpu temp and fan rpm and rad fan rpm, plus ssd/hhd installed.

Have you set any config in the right side "Config Panel" you need to check what devises to display.

I have the same version Ryan and I had went through the uninstall/reboot/reinstall drill 3-4 times. I just did it again and now it works although it doesn't pick up the GPU fan speed. It's an old ATI HD4670 so may not have a sensor in it.

It now has the RGB settings too, which I like.

A driver won't install though, Windows update can't find it either, it should have been in the Link installer, any ideas?

Here is what the software now looks like.
