Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 103

post #1021 of 1734
Well i sent my defective unit back as soon as i got the prepaid label and now im getting "out of stock" responses from corsair when i ask for the new unit shipping. How in the hell if the failure rate is so low they dont have enough to replace them and stock their vendors? 1% or 2% failure should be nothing for them. Don't really trust them anymore

I bet all Corsair owners just started to RMA it and caused the lack of stock lol

so here i am with my all new build pc.. but had i just seen this thread before buying that h80.. i got the noice from pump also..
if i buy an molex to 3 pin , can i put it into motherboard cpu fan and then control it via software?
and do i understand right that i take the molex from the pump that is in my psu now, and connect it with the molex to 3 pin and then to cpu fan in motherboard? just dont understand how this should work? what about the 3 pin that is in my cpu fan from the pump right now, what do i do what that then? and if this work why did they even do the molex to psu connect insted of just a 3 pin to cpu fan? im cunfused and sad about that damn noice..

Yes, if the motherboard's fan header is capable of that.

and do i understand right that i take the molex from the pump that is in my psu now, and connect it with the molex to 3 pin and then to cpu fan in motherboard?
Yes. Or rather to a chassis fan header.

just dont understand how this should work?
Just like you said - put it into motherboard cpu fan and then control it via software.

what about the 3 pin that is in my cpu fan from the pump right now, what do i do what that then?
You can leave it in the CPU_FAN header, and use another fan header to power the unit.

and if this work why did they even do the molex to psu connect insted of just a 3 pin to cpu fan?
Because of the power limitation of a fan header and power requirement of the fan controller part of the unit. More specifically to avoid a scenario where user connects 4 strong fans to the unit, and the combined current draw of the fans exceeds the fan header's rating and causes damage to the motherboard.
And the pump isn't supposed to be powered from a variable voltage source.

thx for the quick answer :-)

my motherboard is asus p8z77-v if that tell any thing about if it should work with the fix.. sry im not an pc expert rly my first time with an none stock cpu cooler.

if i connect 1 of my 3 pin fans to my chassis fan header on mb i can control it with asus fan xpert 2 that came with mb..
but i dont know if its diffrent with an pump?

Yes you can control it with Fan Xpert2. But know that with a custom setting you will need to load that profile everytime you reboot. Ive emailed ASUS and they said they dont have an update where you can change the default Fan Xpert2 profile.

are there any other software out there, that could do a better job?
i tryed download speedfan, but that program seems way to hard to get into for someone like me.

No software will work from the power up, the soonest you can do that is if you launch speedfan as a system service, but still it's not gonna work until the OS loads. A better way would be to set it manually in BIOS, if it allows that (mine does) to say 80% and then let the software tune that to 86% or 92% or whatever will be needed for your pump.

Just finished installing H80 and its louder than my 3- AP181s on High. I think I am going to return it and get an Antec 920.

I can honestly say that my Antec 920 is so bloody quiet it's ridiculous. I have the 2 fans (xigmateks) and the pump running off 12v and it's still silent.
