Corsair Link control system finally makes its debut

It was a long wait!

| Cases, Cooling & PSU News | Posted: Jan 11, 2012 7:29 am

CES 2012 - Since the release of the Hydro Series H80 cooler I tested some time back, there was a special connection that was in the head unit of this AIO cooling solution. After the H80, I was also finding this connection of the H100, and even the Dynamic LED display for the Dominator GT memory. These odd connectors have been rumored to have a controller module on the way that with the use of software as you see in the image above, will allow full control over potentially every cooling device with a 3-pin or 4-pin fan header. That isn't all though! As you can also see in that image this unit is completely software controlled. So with just a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose any Corsair chassis image to back the temperature readings, and even upload other case images into the software if you plan to add this to a non-Corsair solution.

This device is very modular and allows you to take the main module (denoted with an arrow) that fits in a 3.5" drive bay making installation super simple. Not only can you control the fan speeds, pump speeds, set fan speed profiles or choose one already provided, you can also hook LED light strips to the Link. This even goes further than you think. Most assume you are going to get on/off control, or possibly dimming of the lighting, but on top of that, there are sliders to give you full access to the RGB spectrum.

Along with the main module, you do need to attach a module to control the fans, and a module to control the lighting, but as I discussed the system further with them, I was made aware that you can keep stacking fan and lighting modules on the main Link systems 8 ports. So if you want to control every fan and light your case like an airport runway, the Link from Corsair will give you everything you need at the click of a mouse. Stay tuned to the reviews section as well. I was told the Link just released today, and it's possible I may have one on my door step when I return from CES.
