2.)you have to use the supplied usb cable in order to use the Link software. if you have installed the usb cable then go into device manager and look at your usb ports and see if the OS recognizes the cooler. if you are using windows 8.1 there were some compatiblity issues with Link so they may not have fixed that yet. there are no drivers, its all included in the Link installer.(sorry for the confusion)

if it turns out that corsair has not fixed the compatibility issue yet, then you will have to use one of the non cpu fan headers on the board.

good luck

1) Ok. So I started playing around with the OC options. I used the Genie and it auto-jumped the system to 4.0 Ghz. I ran prime95 for 30 min afterwards and it seems like there were no problems. I am going to fiddle with it more and see if I can bump it up manually from there, but I haven't done so yet.

2) I had used the usb cable that came with it. The system wasn't recognizing the cooler at all. It was just listed under Human Interface Devices as USB Input Device in the Device Manager. I looked up the issue online and found a fix that seems to have worked. I had to go into the Registry and change 4 different values from 1 to 0. (this was the thread that solved it: I still can't find it on the device manager but Corsair Link finds it and can change values with it anyways.
