AX1200i (Corsair Link) - watch your SSD

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just thought people might appreciate a warning to watch what the monitoring software on the AX1200i is up to if the system event log is on an SSD. I noticed, shortly after installing a new boot drive, an unreasonable amount of writes to my C: drive in a short period of time. I tracked it down to the system event log, which was being written constantly because every second or so, Corsair Link reloads the driver it uses to pull in sensor readings. This is broken behaviour, since it should just load the driver once.

Every time it loads the driver, the system event log gets written to.

I am guessing that the same will happen if using any other Corsair Link products, they all use the same software as far as I can tell.

Another user found a workaround - run realtemp gt, which loads the same driver. Once it's loaded it, Corsair link can't keep reloading it every second.

Given my recent experience with Corsair customer service, who knows when (or if???) this will be fixed properly.

I was thinking of getting this PSU, do you have to use the monitor software? I would just rather not have another thing running on my PC if it is not needed.

I should have put details about that in the original post. I'd also rather not run it at startup.

Unfortunately, you have to if you're going to make use of the multi-rail mode, which, along with the monitoring (which is also broken at present) is basically all the AX1200i offers over an AX1200, so I don't see why you'd want to run without that. I particularly want multi-rail because of the disaster I had here: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=110264

For some reason, the AX1200i has been released with multi-rail (configurable overcurrent protection) completely broken, in that it doesn't work unless the link software is running. See this thread for confirmation of this from Corsair:

http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=111112

Which means no OCP in Linux, no OCP at the BIOS and during boot, and no OCP if the machine bluescreens or for any other reason Corsair Link stops responding. (well, I say no OCP, I guess there is still the 100 amp overall load limit, but a fat lot of good that would do you if my recent experience is anything to go by).

Why they've released it like that, I have no idea. I guess they just don't really care whether it properly provides the feature it promises, as long as people believe it does and subsequently hand over their money.

On the plus side, at least this damn thing is quiet.

Wow that really stinks. I read a great review on it from jonnyguru. I have to say that this overcharging for useless features is becoming all to common place these days in everything. I was looking at getting a new car and was thinking about a 2013 GTR since I love the idea of the launch control, but after reading many horror stories on the GTr forums about it and not getting warrantied on the busted trans and differential I decided against it and now I am getting a ZO6 instead. That has a few gimmicks on it as well. Marketing deptartments are joining up with engineers and coming up with crap that sounds great on paper but does not work right in real life. The new 2013 GT500 is the same thing. Use launch control on that and you will smoke the clutch pretty fast. You spend a lot fo money on top of the line products expecting them to work as advertised, but a lot of the time you don't get what you pay for.

Maybe they will fix the issue with the softeware soon if enough people are complaining.

REPOST FROM http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?p=608254#post608254


Another SSD thrash discovered in the software. Take a look in C:\Appdata\Users\\Roaming\Corsair - I have a 2MB log file being filled (and subsequently rotated, with 10 of them being kept) every minute to two minutes.

This file seems to be written about every 10ms !!!! No wonder we are seeing high CPU utilisation with the link software updating the log file 100 times every second.

The write amplification being caused by these tiny writes to an SSD is going to be absolutely brutal. I'd recommend anyone else seeing this to move the corsair folder in appdata onto a spinning HDD and create a symbolic link to it from the C: drive so that the writes end up on a platter drive and not the SSD.

Below is ONE SECOND worth of log writes.

Thread Starter 
OK, now it's been a few days since I discovered the second log-thrash in this software, I thought I'd update.

I'd been tracking my total writes to my C: drive ever since I first discovered the excessive writes, so every couple of days or whatever, I've been firing up Crystal Disk Info and noting the total writes into a text file so I could discover what would reduce them.

It turns out that nearly 80% of the writes to my C: drive were coming from Corsair Link alone.

Below is my notes:

09/10/12 - 743GB
11/10/12 - 783GB
12/10/12 - 821GB
14/10/12 - 849GB
18/10/12 - 1.01TB in 302 power on hours = 3.4GB/hr = 58MB/min, 1MB/sec
21/10/12 - 1.03TB in 329 hours = 20GB in last 27 hours since moving corsair
link front-end logs out of appdata, = 758MB/hr = 12.6MB/min

As you can see, as soon as I moved the Corsair Link logs out of appdata on C:, my writes reduced by 45MB per minute. Nothing else has been moved off C:, and nothing else changed to reduce writes in that time.

Given that 45MB per minute is 63GB every day, or 22.5TB per year if running 24/7, this is not only a big problem for SSD life, but will also gimp the performance on a lot of drives I imagine.

thanks man for the info.

i noticed my HDD LED is blinking every 2 seconds. before i install the ax860i and software i didn't do that. i thought maybe windows 8 causing it so i unplugged the connection to the motherboard. redneck way to fix but now i know the real reason.

so i guess i have to remove the software first until they fix it. that's the solution for now until next version comes out. good it's just a software thing.

i dont wanna my ssd having too many cycles writes no good. i have an expensive ssd. i want it to last. only been 3 days

Wow, yet another reason to avoid products that use the Corsair link software. With all the Windows 8 issues I've seen, the BSODs caused by the software, and the booting and shut down issues caused by it, I'm surprised people are still buying the Corsair "i" products. Corsair needs to pull them from the market and seriously rework the software. It doesn't matter how good the hardware is if the software causes massive issues. Just look at Creative if you want an example of a company with some great hardware and poor drivers and software.

Hopefully Corsair makes some official statements about this soon or releases software and drivers that limit the Link functionality, but get rid of all the issues.

Boris posted at Nov 11 that a newer version of the software seemed to fix it.

I think I am gonna reinstall windows but go back to windows 7 ultimate. It's more mature. Wait for a year for the win8.

But I will try corsair link on win7 and see if he'd led still blink. About time since the netgear software messed up my computer as well.
