H100 Problem

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

Against my better judgement, after reading a nice review of several members of a forum about how "good" and easy it is to install it, I just said "Let's try it".
Okay so, The store that I bought it from has a 29 days return policy, no questions asked.I could return it right now, but I really want to see if you guys can come up with some solutions cause with NO FANS working, it keeps my CPU at 32*C idle.My old Noctua NH-D14 did 38*C on idle, so yeah.

After having to remove the motherboard(yes I have back-panel cut but one of the screws wasn't "uncovered" by the cut so I had to..) I took out the Noctua back-plate(kinda identical, I just did it so no problems will come up(lol).I then mounted the radiator on the top, fitted almost like it was ment for HAF-X, the 2 fans same.Just perfect, then I proceeded to mounting the CPU block to the..CPU(duh) and it all went perfect, it was looking(still) so neat and clean.(Not to mention small compared to the Noctua).I then connected the 2 fans to the CPU-Block and the CPU Block fan-like thing in the CPU_FAN slot and then the 4 pin (big thing) into a 4 pin thing.(I tested the line with a single fan, it has power)

I booted my system for the first time with this cooling, the profile leds lid up, water started moving around(could slightly hear it) but 5 seconds later the PC failed to boot(I forgot to plug the video card to the PSU), plugged the video card and then proceeded to booting again, but this time no leds lid up, nor did any water sounds nor did any fans started.After 25 seconds I was worried, So I though, let's check the temps it was very nice even with no fans running, so now.

What's this? Should I return it and get another one? Did I miss-uninstall it?

Could be something to do with the Video card not being plugged in. I just hope it is not damaged. remove the GPU and reseat it. Don't forget power! Try again.

Sound like the pump is working but the fans are not? I read about a few people having this problem, but I havnt had this problem myself.

You can try resetting the H100 firmware by doing this.


1. While the computer is running, hold down the profile button for approximately five seconds
2. Wait one minute, while the unit continues to run
3. Shut down your computer
4. Press and hold the profile button for five seconds while turning on the power to your computer.

I don't get something, I've been running the H100 for 24 hours(almost) with it's fans not spinning, no water moving sound and still my CPU temperature is 32*C.
At this point I'm thinking the MOBO is nuts.Can the fact that the cpu-block is not running give out false temperatures?

I took a new cable from the psu thingie(its modular) and connected it myself, I tried powering a fan with it(via convertor) and it worked fine.All the connections are as tight as it goes.I did not try to see if it boots without it.I can not hear water, never.(Only on those first 5 seconds)

But something else is bothering me.
It has 2 thingies that I need to connect.I do not know the standard definitions.
It has 1 smallish thing like all fans have, that you normally plug in SYS_FAN, I plugged that one in CPU_FAN.
I have one bigger thing that is SUPPOSED to have 4 metal round things inside, this one only has 2 on the right side, is that normal?!

I think your supposed to plug the fans into the H100?
post #6 of 17
On the CPU block itself are 4 PWM connectors that you're suppose to connect to the fans screwed into the fans.
post #7 of 17
well, I just checked it on my H100's Molex (the big plug with only 2 round thingies) and it only has 2 plugs. From what you're describing though it sounds like you may have had a defective unit.
As for the temperature, my 2600K idles with fan spinning at about 30°C accrding to HWmonitor or between 18°C and 22°C accrding to my motherboard. So I suspect the 30°C your motherboard gives you is more likely around 40°C

Yes its normal.. just plug it into one of the four pin female connectors coming from your PSU. Anyone of them will do... make sure the prongs are pushed up and are secured into the female or else it won't get a good connection. Some of those male connectors have lose prongs so make sure they are straight when going in. As for the whole setup... All you need to do is get that 2 prong plug into the female piece and then use the small cord (3 or 4 pin cant remember) and plug it into CPU_Fan on your mobo. So you were right in doing that. Make sure both fans are connected securely in the H100 CPU block and if one of them reaches like in my system, then just plug that fan into a SYS_Fan slot.

Try pressing the button to see if anything happens. Does the level in cooling change or anything? I honestly have to say I have never heard water running through my cooler, never really cared to listen... My system is idle at 25 and thats all i care about.

Yeah, I've never "Heard" water in my H100,
but I guess if the fans aren't working I would maybe?

Thought I'd post a few pics of my working H100 for you to reference to.
