Question about setting up corsair link for h110i gt

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am trying to set up my corsair 110i gt so it runs quiet when the cpu is running cool for basic internet browsing and such but increase when I need more cooling. So basically quiet unless needed. My question is when you set it up do you select cpu temp or the pump temp for the fan and pump control? If you understand what I am asking.

If the H110i is anything like my H100i you will be better off using a fan controller. The link software could never get fan speeds low enough to be quiet so I got rid of it and unhooked those USB plugs from the pump for Link.

Another problem is they come with high performance fans that are not quite at all. I would replace them with some Noctua fans with the resistor added in if you can. I did this and everything got so much better when trying to sleep and download games since my PC is in the bedroom.

When I have a curve set up depending on temp of cpu it is dead quiet. Can hardly hear it. Run prime 95 or some sort of stress test as the temp goes up on the cpu cores the fans speed up as needed and once it cools back down the fans run at a very low rpm. So maybe the 110i gt is different. Im not sure if I should set the fans to monitor the pump temp or the core temps to set my fan speed curve
