H100i - Corsair LINK software required to run? - Page 2

So pump monitoring then? THANK YOU.

...and in this case, since I am removing LINK software completely, that 3 pin connector becomes useless?

You can still monitor it using whatever utility you like, so it's not completely useless. Motherboard thinks its just another fan.

I'm not sure if it's been mentioned or not. but you only need to fire up the software once to set the desired settings. I was troubleshooting an issue with some Corsair Neutron GTX SSDs. I've done like 5 fresh installs of Windows 7 and the chip in the unit retains its settings.

Useful information which has not been mentioned! I still want ASUS Q fan running my rad fans though... Now I have to investigate whether or not I can run both H100i fans on a PWM splitter to one CPU header rated at 1A (12w) - think those fans on the same header would draw more than that or should I start a new thread?

One of the headers on my pump was busted so I was forced to run both fans off a single header on the pump with the included splitter. Both fans run at 2400rpm this way. Which is enough to keep my 3770k cool at 4.6GHz. Idles at 30c and peaks during folding at 67c. Give or take a few, of course.

This is in a Phantom 820 case with two 200mm top fans installed.

Hope that helps.

Hi I'm new here and registered so I can ask this question. So you're saying the profile that was created in the link software stays with the h100i GTX? Which means I don't have to use that annoying buggy software running in the background? That's awesome. I also have corsair k70 RGB keyboard which doesn't seem to remember without the software what profile I have saved on it so I thought it's the same with the pump. It'd be awesome if I could just get rid of it all together and use my bios to set the fan speed at given temperature. Not entirely sure if i can do this but i'll give it a shot. Thanks for the info once again Cheers =)

Can anyone confirm this also possible with the h100i v2. I purchased this cooler for my 6800k on a x99 Asus Strix MB and plan to overclock it but i am having idle temps of 38-40 which for me is high

I am far from an expert in water cooling, but my understanding of it is that idle temps might seem high, but you should be getting much lower load temps than you would with air cooling. My personal experience is 33-38c when idling, and 55-60 under 100% load @ 3.9GHz. See my sig for specs.

Side note, I have been experimenting with Corsair Link with my H100i V2 and I've found some interesting things. I forget what version I am running at the moment (on my laptop atm, will edit post tomorrow night when I start my PC back up (was turning it on and off a lot messing with connections for Link)), but I've noticed that you only need to run Corsair link for a short time for your settings to be applied to the CPU cooler, and you can then shut it down. This experiment was born out of the fact I hate how it consistently uses 1-5% CPU and I don't want another program running.

I tested in a few ways.
#1 applying a custom fan color
#2 Adjusting pump RPM
#3 Adjusting fan curve
#3 Adjusting fan RPM

What I've noticed is that these settings are persistent after the application is fully closed. I was running HW Monitor with OCCT and verified temps remained in the same general range when I had the application running and when I closed it. I am not 100% sure about the fan curve, since HW Monitor does not read the correct fan RPM for some reason, but the other settings seem consistent. For example, I jacked the fans up to 100%, heard them running plain as day, shut the application down, and still heard them running at the same db level.
