  • [INFO] Corsair Link and Windows 8.1 Compatibility

    Corsair Link is compatible with Windows 8.1 and has been for at least several weeks.

    First beta version that was compatible and working with Windows 8.1: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showpost...0&postcount=38

    Current Version of Corsair Link: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=125350

    So that means I'll be rolling out the 8.1 and 8.1 Update tomorrow onto my main desktop, especially considering the recent news about Microsoft forcing the 8.1 Update onto 8.1 users.

    now to update to 8.1 and by the way, the NB sensor is reading incorrectly... oh well



    Interested in listening to guitar playing and a good conversation, look for me on TS.

      That's integrated into your AMD processor. Nothing to do with motherboard nowadays... And if we are talking about CPU temps, then try CoreTemp.

        Wait, the North Bridge sensor is part of the CPU?

          Most of the traditional northbridge (NB) components are now integrated into the CPU. It's been this way since Phenom II and the first-gen Core i chips. As far as I know, the NB does not have any sensors, so you are assigning this "sensor" to the wrong component. The NB traditionally consisted of: memory controller, PCI-E controller, AGP bus controller, and data-link interface with the southbridge (SB). Most of these (well AGP isn't used anymore...) are now integrated into the CPUs along with some additional components. Intel is calling theirs Platform Controller Hub (PCH). I can't remember if AMD ever assigned a name to their integrations. Actually, AMD started integrated MCH (memory controller hub) into their chips as early as AMD64 era of chips.

          The "sensor" has to be either some additional chip on the motherboard or something in the CPU. Neither NB or SB contains any temperature sensors as far as I know of.

            That might have happened when a freak spike in cpu temps happened the same night as the sensor problem... Hmmm...
