Ubisoft Connect seems to be fighting with the software I use to control my fan hub (Corsair ICUE). Every time I open Ubisoft Connect my PC stutters and freezes. Furthermore, it sometimes causes my fans to stop working entirely until I restart my system. Mostly is just freezes and intermittently disables all my USB ports. No idea what's causing this.
Here's what I've tried:
Setting either program to high priority in task manager
Running each program in admin mode
Making sure windows, ubisoft connect, gpu/cpu chipset drivers, and icue are all up to date.
Installing ubisoft connect on another drive (This makes ubisoft connect not work at all. It will open, I log in, but it just loads indefinitely and no buttons work. Tried a non-windows partition on my maid drive and then a separate drive altogether, same on both)
Turn off all overlays/background programs
CPU: Ryzen 3800X (no OC)
GPU: RTX 3080 (no OC)
Storage: PCIe 4th Gen NMVE (x2)
RAM: 16 GB DDR4
Mobo: Asus ROG STRIX B550-A Gaming
OS: Win 11 (up-to-date)
Anyways, I canceled my Ubisoft+ until it gets worked out. Absolutely shouldn't be happening. Didn't think it was possible to make a worse game client than EA Origin but you folks nailed it.
