About  (from Corsair Memory)

Corsair Link Commander Mini allows for precise control over fans, LEDs, and more entirely from the Corsair Link Dashboard software in Windows. It's not just a more integrated version of the old Corsair Link Commander, the hardware itself has been dramatically improved.


The most used version is 2.4.5110, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is CorsairLink.exe. The software installer includes 47 files and is usually about 9.63 MB (10,097,470 bytes).
