H100i preventing sleep mode?

I just built a rig about a month ago, and recently installed a Corsair H100i Liquid cooler for my processor. Here are the specs:

CPU: AMD FX-8350
MB: Asus Sabertooth 990 fx 2.0
RAM: 8g(2x4) GSKILL RIPJAW 1866mhz
Case: Corsair 400R
HD: 240gig SSD
PSU: Corsair 650HX
Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 560 2gig
OS: Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bit

The H100i runs beautiful, keeps my CPU cool and is much more quiet then the stock AMD heatsink that came with the processor, but ive noticed that whenever I go to put the computer in sleep mode, it will sleep for a few seconds, but then the H100i fans kick in at full RPM and the computer wakes up. Ive got the cooler hooked up the way its supposed to be and have corsair link installed. Any help would be appreciated.

  1. U don't need t Corsair link installed... Try removin it, both software and hardware, and see if the problem remains

    Or you could just try closing the system tray applet icon for it and see if it will sleep then.
  3. Also, now I think of it, try connecting t Corsair Link t a different header on yo mobo, if u have others spare - I've known some work with it better than others on some mobos
