Corsair H50: RATTLING NOISE?!?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I just threw together a new system that included a Corsair H50. When I power the system on, I hear a slight rattling noise coming from the cooling unit attached to the processor. NOT the radiator or the radiator fan; the cylindrical device attached directly to the processor.

Has anyone else encountered this? My i7 2600k is running at about 46degrees celsius idle in the bios. I assume that means the cooling unit is working, but im worried about the rattle. It's very slight. It almost sounds like a tiny fan is smacking against something as it spins.

help?

It just sounds like a piece may be breaking off in there and could be causing restriction or the noise. How are the temps?

From what I understand, that's your pump, right?
Would be concerned if I heard rattling in that for certain.

Keep us posted and good luck!

Yeah, I am pretty sure that is what he is talking about.

Was it used or new?

Brand spanking new from Newegg. Just put it together tonight. CPU temps idle are around 46C (I have an i7 2600k). The noise seems to have lessened just a little bit. I'm thinking i might hold off and let it run for a bit to see if it goes away completely. I'm talking to some of the techs on the Corsair forums as well, and they say that often happens because of air trapped in the pumps and it will work itself out. I dunno tho...I'd hate to fry a whole new system...

On the radiator make sure the side with the hoses going into isn't on top, that's the only position I had problems with.
