I'm sorry but we will not support CorsairLink. That's like asking Apple to support the Google Store.

I'm upset. You're not like Apple...

Corsair Link has been EOL for years anyway. Why lose time to support a program that's long been abandonned?
If you need to monitor Corsair devices, HWinfo does it very well with Aquasuite.

IHMO this is a very strange thing to ask Aquacomputer to do. Just using the words "Corsair Link" and "Aquasuite" in the same sentence is ...unsettling. As Remayz mentioned, Corsair Link has not been supported in years. It was a bloated, buggy mess that Corsair has replaced with iCue which is an even bigger bloated, buggy mess.

It would be helpful if you specified exactly what you are using Corsair Link for. If you have Corsair RGB fans, check out the SPLITTY4 which is specifically designed to connect Corsair RGB fan LEDs to an Aquacomputer RGBpx port. It is also a 4-port PWM fan hub and has the connectors that Corsair fans plug into. If Corsair Link is controlling LEDs on your motherboard and/or RGB RAM, check out OpenRGB or Signal RGB. Both of these programs can control Corsair RGB controllers like the Lighting Node Pro and Lighting Node Core and most motherboard and RAM LEDs. Another option is SIV, which can control Corsair controllers but not motherboard or RAM LEDs. If you just need to monitor a Corsair controller, use HWINFO then import the data into Aquasuite via the HWINFO shared memory support feature which works very well. Note - You will need to buy the pro version of HWINFO to have shared memory support work 24/7. The free version turns off shared memory support after 12 hours.

The best thing to do with Corsair software is immediately uninstall it. :cursing:

Corsair AX1500i power supply. Very convenient, I don't use HWINFO to get all the data.

Well HWinfo can access power supplies for Aquasuite, so what you asked for is already there :)

I bought an aquasuite subscription and now I still need to buy Hwinfo (

Even if the Aquasuite were software that you paid regular license fees to use, which it isn't, that wouldn't give you any right to third-party software and hardware support.

Where do you get such a thought?

It makes sense from the technical aspect to support Corsair PSUs at the hardware monitoring. But we are not investing time and money into this as software like HWInfo can do the job for you.
Also if we start with PSUs we could also include AIOs and Mainboards and even control them. At the end we have no time left for our hardware.

Maybe someday we add a second licence for such third party vendors that could pay our work - but currently we have too much work to do so.

I pay for my license every year.

the license is to have access to updates. but if you don't pay aquasuite will not stop working after a year. you will always have the latest version your last licence allowed you to get.

You only have to pay for the HWINFO Pro version if you want to have shared memory support active 24/7. If you can deal with having to re-enable it after 12 hours, you can use the latest version for free. The other option is to use the last version that existed before the author decided to put a 12-hour limit on shared memory support. If you are OK with using a version prior to version 7.0 you can do so without limitation for free. The author of HWINFO only did this because many people were using the free version of the program in commercial applications. The details are explained HERE. The Personal Pro version of HWINFO costs $25 per year. If you auto-renew, it is only $12.50 per year. Whether its worth it is a personal decision. For me, the cost of AQS and HWINFO are miniscule compared to the cost of the hardware they control and monitor.

Thanks, I didn't know that. But I will still pay every year to support the developer.
