Corsair LINK Software
Once the LINK software is installed and running, this is what you will see first. The home menu is where everything is shown for easy readability. Not only can you see thermals on various components of the system, but we are also shown details on the memory used, and the H150i PRO RGB thermals, fan speeds, pump speed, and current color are shown.
Clicking on the configure tab, we are offered a much smaller window. It is here where temperature sensor. You can rename it, so it is easier to distinguish in the home tab, and you can also set notifications for instance where you pass a specific temperature, or if the processor got hot enough to throttle.
The LINK software also allows users to configure the fans. They can be renamed, this is where the fan mode is chosen, and you can also change the group the fan is highlighted in. There is a default fan curve currently shown for quiet mode, but this will change by mode, and there are places to set the fan curve manually.
If manually setting the fan curve is not your thing, Corsair made life easy for you. There are nine settings to choose from, ranging anywhere from not using the fans at all in Zero RPM mode, and maximum speed setting them at "max" or by using a 100% fixed setting.
The pump inside of the head unit can also be renamed and adjusted. The default setting for the pump is the quiet mode, and we can see the speed of the pump is only 1140 RPM of its 2800RPM potential.
When it comes to choosing a mode for the pump to use, there are only three options. There is quiet, balanced, and performance. All three modes are PWM controlled with a chip inside of the head unit, and there is no way to set the speed at maximum unless your CPU runs hot enough to call for it.
Of course, what would an RGB product be without control of the lighting. It too can be renamed, there are various profiles to be used, and in this window, you can use the slider to adjust the speed in which the mode is presented.
The head unit will display LEDs in six modes. There is a static mode, blink mode, color pulse mode, Color shift mode, Rainbow mode, and temperature mode. Some of these are predefined modes, while those like static and temperature modes have additional settings to look through to get the effect you desire.
