. I would suggest that you uninstall the older version before installing the new one. Also, I didn't know that you have the Link Commander, so do you have the PSU connected to the Commander or directly to the USB header on the MB? If you have it plugged in to the Commander, try to by pass it and connect the PSU to the USB header and see if the Power In reading in Link will get corrected. Btw, is the system stable? are you experiencing some problems with it?
So yeah I installed RC version, now it shows 89% efficiency on 125W draw (on secondary side) which is very nice, but when I launch Furmark +XTU it shows that you invented a perpetuum mobile, efficiency fluctuates wildly, hitting some figures as high as 123% [sic!]. I'm not sure if Corsair Link uses CPU in some manner, and there are some synchronization issues maybe, at high loads?
And no, now that you mentioned it I dont have a Corsair Commander, but its one of the 2 devices that are listed in update firmware dropdown, the other being H80i/H100i which I also don't have. The USB dongle is connected to the USB header directly, and I tried switching headers before (only have 2 on my mboard), to no result.
The system is stable, but I'll run it at stock, just to confirm.
Update: So yes I ran the system at stock and basically at idle it shows perfectly viable 88% eff at 124W, when I run Furmark with a draw of about 280W the figures fluctuate from 90 to 93% eff, but when I run XTU or x264 benchmark all the circus comes back to town, the efficiency graph looks like a sine with majority of readings showing 65% efficiency figures and occasional 100%+ readings.
Also there is no update firmware option in this RC version, am I right?Edited by Bonkxd - 1/10/14 at 7:36pm
