Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 104

post #1031 of 1734
Its down to luck with Antec ones too, friend just bought 920 some weeks ago and had to get it replaced when pump made some annoying noises randomly.

Tho it was nothing compared to sound my H100 makes constantly, its like mix of angle grinder and chirping bird mad.gif

Always been very happy with corsair produckts (psu & ram ) in overall but surely never gonna buy corsair cooling produckts again after this H100 disaster.

i've read some of cosair george's comment and the initial post...can't bother to look through another 100+ pages

so is there an official fix for this issue yet from corsair? Not one where you have to compromise fan speed or do things to your psu and do silly things like place your case horizontally or other "mods"?

Are the new batches in retail circulation yet? Anyway to identify bad batches from serial number?

Corsair said they are shipping me a new pump with a "Corsair Vengeance 1100 headset to compensate all the inconvenience".

I declined there offer of the Vengeance 1100 as I really don't want to see any Corsair product anymore, I just wish I could have a silent PC with the new pump and "never" hear from Corsair again...

I just hope the third one will be fine.

Yes they've identified the problem, have found a solution and have been manufacturing units that are free from the grinding pump noise. I don't know if any revised units have made it into retail circulation, but the best way to tell if it's an old or new unit is by the lot number. If the lot number starts with "1227" or higher, then it should be a new unit manufactured under the new process.

I got my second replacement last Friday and it had been working perfectly fine until last night - that's when my H100 stopped working. The LED indicator turned off, the fans stopped spinning and yeah...the pump was completely dead. So just when I finally received a H100 which made no grinding noise, I get this... I've contacted Corsair and they're shipping out another one, but honestly, if there's anything wrong with the new one, I give up. I really appreciate Corsair's customer service/tech support in sending out these new units so promptly, but it's just becoming a huge hassle.

So when would be a good time to order an H80 or H100? How long until these new ones make it out to stores' stocks?

Is it just me or do these come with the noisiest fans in the world. 2600 RPM sounds like a vacuum. I will invest in a fan controller when I can afford to.

Ive had this H100 for about a month and the pump has managed to become louder than before. Ive tried to muffle the noise by putting the case under another separate table and then covering the front of the table so air ventilates only through the back towards the corner of the room. Temps went up 2C but noise level went down quite a bit.

@ wlw wl - Just wondering where you disappeared to.

RMA it, and hope for a new one that resolves the issue. That is pretty much all we can do at this point, while they may be annoying, the process works to a certain degree.

Hi,
helped me to double connection diodes 1N4007 to 1N4007, in a row. Temperature is in order as Idle and Burn.
RPM - 1732
voltage - 11,4(5) V
Idle - 28C
Burn - 58C

At a voltage 11,7V and 1953 (2020) RPM, unfortunately droning sound issues. frown.gif
