h100 fan speed question - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Keep in mind that even if you set the h100 fan speed controller at HIGH, the fans won't gonna speed up to the max which is 2600 unless your cpu is on full load and is running hot. That fan speed button controls the SPEED RANGE, not a fixed speed. Example: high =2000 to 2600, depending on cpu temp.

That's true also, I rarely push my cpu to 100% unless I'm encoding but since I'm back on the i5 I don't that much encoding so I've really hit 2200.

there is now way to monitor the fan speed if your fans are plugged into the pump, you must plug the fans directly into mobo fan header if you want to monitor the speed of the fans, but doing this will render the h100 fan controller useless.
the 2200rpm that you are seing is the pump speed, which is about right. To proove this, try unplugging the fans from the pump, you will see that the 2200 rpm on your monitor will still be there. there is no way to control the pump speed.
The fan controller button on the pump controls the fan speed, it does not affect the pump speed at all

I bought today the H100 and i want to ask something .When i started my pc for the first time i noticed that i could adjust the fan speed using the central button which is based on the pump .After about 30 minutes this function didnt work .I have read all of your posts and i realized that the fan speed wont speed up if the water temp does not reach upper limits .I am wondering if i have to change the cpu Q-fan control setting from disable(default) to enable in bios .

Great info! I was wondering about the fan speed as well. I have my pump connected to the CPU fan connector and my motherboard and AI Suite suggests the fans are running at 2000rpm even when I have the Corsair speed setting to low.

So as I understand it, the speed on the Corsair pump is for range? Is there a way for me to see the range work when I run Prime95? I have AI Suite and HWMonitor installed. Is it safe to run both?

It's the pump speed. The cable from your unit to your motherboard is to read the pumpspeed only not the fans. Uhm you can read your pump speed by AI suite 2 or in bios or speedfan.

1 light: 1500 RPM Fan speed
2 lights: 2000 RPM fan speed
3 lights: 2500 RPM fan speed
(the default stock fans which came from the H100)

you know what? i completely understand now. i didn't mean to highjack this thread. i understand now that the molex connector powers the pump and the pump speeds allow the fans to vary based on the amount of heat dissipation required. i guess i was looking for ways to quiet down the fans, but now i know how it works. thanks guys!
