post #23001 of 28303
Yesterday my green and blue LEDs stopped working, just a red Corsair logo now unless I move the slider down to zero then just darkness. It looks like this isn't an uncommon problem so I guess it will be returned for replacement.

Not sure if this has been said before but apparently RadeonPro can cause Corsair Link to crash when you try to start it. Figured this out after spending a few hrs trying everything I could find on the web. When none of that worked I just started closing running programs. Turned off RadeonPro and Corsair Link started up just fine.

Unfortunately I think my pump is shot though. On a 2600k @ 4.2GHz, 1.288v my temps hit 90C in just a few sec while running P95. Corsair Link reports the pump as running full speed (2140 RPM) but the h80i temp (guessing that's water temp?) jumps from 29 to 31C in about 3 sec.

Also noticed a bit of noise coming from my rig occasionally after booting up that would go away after about 20 sec. I thought it was a fan at first until I pulled everything out of the case to re-seat the block. Check the bios and it shows the pumps only doing about 800 RPM while making that noise but then shoots back up to 2400 RPM and the noise goes away.

I'm guessing I'm going to have to RMA this but I figured I would check here first if there is anything I can try first.

Regarding your boot issue I get the exact same thing. Pump makes all sorts of sounds and the LED pulses red but goes away once I get to the Windows loading screen. Only happens to me after I've powered down or the machine has been off for awhile. Regarding your temps though on load I get around 30 C idle and 55C full load and I'm folding with this so the temps are constant. It sounds like your pump is still working though if it's reporting the full speed but the waterblock might not be making proper contact with your CPU? If you're still having problems after that it probably is faulty and you'll have to deal with Corsair's RMA process.

I get the LED pulses as well but mine's already red so it goes to white and back. The only way to get it to stop is either change the color in Corsair Link or power off and on. Everything is also tightened down pretty good so I don't see how it couldn't be making contact but I will pull the block off and check once I get home from work tonight.

If I do have to RMA, how easy is Corsair to deal with? Unfortunately I just missed the deadline to return it to Newegg by a week. doh.gif

Corsairs RMA process is painless compared to the other companies from what I can gather. I have not seen or heard anyone have issues with getting their AIO systems replaced.

I rma my corsair ram and it was super easy phone support with advance rma. It's a good company to work with.
post #23007 of 28303
Good news here, no need to RMA! Found a thread where some people with ITX mobo's needed to add washers to the backplate to get more pressure on the CPU so I tried it out and here are the results;
Before (Click to show)
After (Click to show)
Quite a difference! I'm just glad I found and tried this before RMA'ing and having the same issues. Thanks and +reps for all the replies. cheers.gif

^ Glad you got it fixed. I know some people were having issues with the H1/80i fitting odd mobos and had to get/use the backplate from H1/80.

I think I might need to do this also, I'm hitting temps that feel/seem too high even though the block feels solid in place.

What sort of washers did you use?

They're a very thin, red, cardboard. No idea what they were for but just happened to find them in a bag of misc. case screws. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful but I can at least say I wouldn't use metal washers.
