Has anything updated overnight? Im assuming youve not been inside the case or moved it or anything like that.

Might be worth removing armory crate, it doesnt serve any real purpose and iCue should pick up your motherboard and give you control over its lighting anyway.

Perhaps reinstalling iCue afterwards?

Try uninstalling iCue and reinstalling it now.
It should still recognise the motherboard and give control over the addressable headers and board lighting.

BTW.... you want iCue 3....your cooler isnt going to be happy on iCue 4....
(I'm going off my own experiences there...iCue 4 starts changing the pump speed and I dont think the pump is designed to cope with it...)

iCue 4 varies the pump rate with the platinum range, where iCue 3 didnt... im reasonably sure thats what killed my old H100i Plat... but thats a separate issue.

Are there any updates in win update? have a look at the history to see if it updated anything overnight thats maybe causing the issue?
Other than that, im sorry but I dont know... I thought it could be a conflict with armory crate/iCue.

The LED strips havent been knocked or anything? theyre still connected to their headers properly?
Perhaps the Mods could help.

Where abouts are the headers located?

Been intouch with PCs. They going to get someone to ring me sometime tomorrow. They had a look. Can't see what causing it.

You've got me worried now, as I've used iCUE 4 since it was released over a year ago - and that's with a toasty 5800X :unsure:

I am gaming now and have been for nearly 2 hours.
CPU temps 56c
GPU temps 62c
And the rest? Normally there would be probably 50 sensors from your mobo to the cooler. It may be one of them is over the odds. It's iCue that's setting them red, check your temp thresholds in icue.

Could be total coincidence. With iCue 3 the pump speed on my H100i Plat didnt really change no matter what mode (quiet/balanced/extreme) I upgraded to iCue 4 and I noticed it suddenly varied the pump speed. I would change between quiet and balanced, and within a few months the pump started to go. Dont know it was def that, I could just be the one that got the dodgy pump, but made me very suspicious...
