Solved

Just built new computer with Windows 8.1. Help please!

I just built a new pc, it booted up fine, it runs without crashes, temps seem fine on everything. So then, I begin downloading my drivers and stuff. All the drivers installed successfully, but when I tried installing Corsair Link and a keyboard driver from Logitech, they both froze up my computer during the installation where I had to hit the reset or power button. Is this simply a coincidence or a problem on my end?

    After restarting, I found that I had a Corsair Link shortcut on my desktop with a blank icon. When I clicked it, it would not launch, neither is it in in the programs list. If it helps, I'm using a i5-4690k with an h100i.
  3. just uninstall corsair link and try again I guess, might be a one time thing

    Sorry for the late reply, went to bed, lol. This happens everytime I install it, I tried it multiple times.

    Edit: I'm fine without using the Logitech keyboard driver, I didn't really use it for anything specifically, but I'd like to know if I need Corsair Link to run my h100i with an i5-4690k (possibly overclocking a bit in the future).

    the h100i will default to the medium profile I think if corsair link is not installed

    I run my OC 4670K and H80i at a custom profile somehwere between the quiet and medium so you should be fine at leaving it deault

    People ahve ahd been having issues with corsair link and Win 8/8.1 so hopefully corsair fixes it

    Thanks for the help, I eventually found a solution with the editing of some registry keys which got it working. :D
