Corsair Link - Maximus IX code/Hero/Formula

Bescrawl
Level 7
I have*the*Maximus ix Code & the Corsair H110i GT. I can't*get Corsair Link to show my case fans (they are in cha1, cha2, cha3). I've tried a few things in the BIOS but so far nothing*has worked: 1. Turning off Qfan control - nothing 2. Setting Qfan control to PWM - nothing 3. Setting all fans to DC Mode - Nothing.*

H110i GT*Fan Headers - I have the pump connected to*USB2,*Pump is connected to the CPU Fan header and the two radiator fans are connected to the pump via the supplied Y splitter.

I had it all working fine witn my previous board (Maximus vii hero). There must be something I'm missing here? Do I have to make a change in BIOS then reinstall Link?

Any help? Thanks all.

Just the other day I hooked up the Corsair H100i GTX. I plugged in the corsair link to the usb header labled usb 1314 it is also the ROG shared plug. Now the Asus Maximus VI Formula will not post, no video, no beeps, no usb support mouse or keyboard. I guess buyer beware with corsair and their link.

It’s unique because it didn’t happen to you……uhhh…. Ok….

@ xherics, thx, I will check it out.

Yeah, if others don't have the same issue as you, a fix is unlikely as it requires replication.

Let's start: even on your own website: (and don't forget the IX is just 2 weeks on the market)

ASUS should focus on their software a lot more. Their AISuite and RGB LED control are just pure nightmare to work with. Constant BSOD on Windows 10. Worst of all ASUS usually stops providing software updates 6 months after the release of a MoBo

whenever i try to install AURA, it would cause me to encounter the BSOD, sometimes not letting me boot into windows. I have uninstalled both AI suite and AURA but would like to know if anyone has encounter and has a solution.
The BSOD left a message with some time ~ error? sorry, cannot remember the exact message.

And what about the iomap64.sys? I'm unique again? Just Google iomap64.sys blue screen. It gives more than 2.000 results.

I dont have these issues, so cannot replicate for you. Send your system config details to ASUS Netherlands, and have them replicate it (again if you need to).

Hey Raja, you helped me dial-in my Z87-PRO several years ago. Unfortunately I had to upgrade RAM a few months ago for a big project (I do lots of engineering FEA work) and that seems to have destabilized the system no matter what I tried to fix it. So I decided it's the perfect excuse for a hardware refresh!

So I just ordered a Maximus IX Hero to run a i7-7700K. Along with this I ordered a Corsair H115i water cooler and am wondering if that was a good choice.

Is there any way to drive the H115i "PWM" pump via the BIOS? Not just the fans, they're the easy part. I'd like to eliminate Corsair's FanLink software while still throttling the pump (& fans) way down when the CPU is idle. I have a similar setup rigged on my Z87 and it works great. However, I'd like to avoid jury-rigging if it's avoidable.

Should I just return the H115i unopened and get something else? If so, looking around for alternatives it seems the other '240mm' closed loop systems have similar weird USB+proprietary fan control setups. Can you or anyone recommend a 240mm closed-loop cooler that's compatible with ASUS BIOS fan control?

It seems I have four options:
1. Just live with FanLink + BIOS (I usually don't run AiSuite 7/24). Yuck...
2. Return the H115i unopened & find another 280mm closed-loop cooler that's compatible with ASUS fan/pump control. Meh...
3. Rig up a new harness (basically splits CPU_FAN to pump+2fans, grabs power from SATA & sends 3 fan monitor signals back to mobo). Ehh...
4. (big ask) ASUS could add USB fan control to the BIOS. Don't know ASUS's relationship with vendors like Corsair & weather the USB API to their pumps is proprietary or not but wouldn't that be great? Hmm!

What do you (& the ROG community of course) think?

You can control the pump via UEFI. Although, with AIO pumps, they are usually best run at max speed as they tend to "whir" more at lower speeds.

If there is some way to control the H115 pump speeds without the Link cable and software, I'd also like to know, but unless I'm mistaken, I don't believe you can control the pump itself on the H115i from the motherboard.

There is a SATA cable for the power, and 2 fan headers if you're controlling the fans via link. There is only a single wire to monitor speed.

I have a couple h115i's in use on several ASUS boards, there is a pump header on newer boards, I always use the UEFI to control all my case and rad fans, I connect the pump to the pump header and leave it in the default setting of disabled so the pump always runs at 100% speed as it just doesn't make much noise and I am always sure the water is circulating, I have not tried controlling the pump speed myself so I can't verify that is functional on all AIO's, the rad fans I set to Turbo mode and case fans to silent mode, it is very simple this way, no software issues, never worry about fans not ramping up under load, I changed the fans on the Corsair AIO as supplied fans are very loud at 100% speed

Well, i purchased Corsair water cooling as well and disabling the BIOS CPU Fan control did not help me (I suggested before to test this)... after I uninstalled the bugheaven, khm, the asus AISuite application, woala, corsair application is usable completely.

After this I set up the fans via BIOS, except the water cooler, what is set up via the corsair app.
