Hi everyone, I installed the H80i today and downloaded corsair link so that i could control the fan speeds, it worked and everything went smoothly, i set up a couple of profiles, made a custom curve and then tried running the fan's at 100% to see how loud/how well it cooled my system.
I was playing a game that makes my processor run hotter than anything else so i played with 100% fan speed for a good couple of hours.
After i had finished playing i wanted to watch a film, so i went back onto corsair link to turn the fans down as they were rather loud.
However, the two pictures of the fans had disappeared so i couldn't turn the fan speed down.
I've tried uninstalling it, re-installing, made sure all cables are in etc. but i just can't get it to work, can anybody help me?
It's really annoying having my fans stuck at 100%...
Have you tried using any other programs to control the fans. Usually, most fans are connected to the MB by a simple 4-pin connector, so they shouldn't have any sort of special protocol to controlling them. Speedfan is a really good program to try out as you can do all the same profile work you can in CL. At minimum, it should help turning down the fans to a more reasonable level.
Thanks for the quick reply, but got it to work now , I uninstalled the software again by manually deleting the corsair folders and then uninstalling from control panel, deleted all of my profiles, then re-installed corsair link, started the software then closed it, then swapped the usb header and re launched, and they showed up.
Also i don't think speed fan would have worked as the fan connector thing is only a 3 pin one, and correct me if i'm wrong but don't you need a 4 pin one for that?
Anyway hope this helps anyone else experiencing this problem.
