Help, Panicking! H100i v2

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I posted this in the AMD mother boards but wanted to also post this here as I really need to get this addressed

Ryzen 1600X
Asus Prime X370-Pro
Corsair H100i v2

I just recently built a whole new rig, everything was great Monday/Tuesday. temps hovered in the high 40c using an h100i v2 Fans were so quiet I didnt know it was running. CPU fan registered in the bios, the pump cord was plugged into a USB header per the corsair instructions. Pump didnt register in the bios but it appeared it was working so I was ok.

Then I read that there is an actual AIO header for this pump cord, I plug it in and immediately my fans kickup super loud, the CPU fan no longer is registering, the pump still does not register and from a cold boot im watching my cpu temp start from 44c and climb to 77c just sitting in bios.

Pump LED is on, but im not sure if its running well, the tubes are not warm so I think its circulating water, but maybe not as fast? prior to this change I couldnt even hear the fans and it was cooling GREAT, now the fans sound like a vacuum cleaner and my temps are rendering my pc un-usable.

I try putting the pump cord back into the usb header, no change

I pop the cmos battery no change

What have I done??

My pc now sits at 77-80c and its so sloppy now. Just browsing web pages its lags and stutters. Ive added more case fans, no dice. Mobo sits at a cool 38c and my GPU is chillin at 36c but im frying my cpu all of a sudden.

Im going to try dropping back in bios when I get home, but does anyone have suggestions on what might be happening?

first thing's first take out your processor so you wont damage it, then plug in the H100i and power on your system and put your ear near the block see if you can hear the pump. If you don't then your pump is dead.

Install corsair link. It'll tell you if the pump is running and at what RPM. You should also set the head that pump is connected to to DC and set it maximum values, so that the motherboard doesn't interfere with pump control.

if the pump is dead the water won't be moving at all so the hoses would be same as ambient temp.

i've seen corsair link report normal RPM on a dead pump so thats not reliable.

I have installed corsair link. but didnt see where my pump would be at.

In Bios I have Qfan, I only have the option to set cpufan, case fan1 and case fan2 to pwm/DC should I just change them all to DC full speed?


EDIT: Also of note when I install corsair link, I dont see any of the cool diagrams that the photos depict, is there some setup im missing? I found a photo were it showed the h100i listed but mine is not showing up.

While the pump is on, take a screwdriver and hold the tip firmly against the outside of the pump. Place the other end of the screwdriver firmly on your OUTER ear (a bit of pressure against jaw/skull works too). It will act as a medium for the sound waves to travel and you WILL be able to tell if your pump is running or not.

To see the pump speeds you must plug the USB into the block, and the header into the USB 2 header and install Corsair Link. Your motherboard won't pick up the pump speed. Corsair Link should have a box that says H100i with the pump speed, and liquid temperature. To set the pump at full speed you have to set performance mode in Corsair Link.
