Hi,
what diodes you used please, to achieve your speed 1800 - 1900 RPM ? I make two diodes in a row 1732 RMP with 11,4(5) V.
At speed and voltage 11,7V 1953 (2020) RPM pump hear it.
thx

if you undervolt the pump, will that undervolt the fan headers on the H100 aswell?

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.

What if you connect the molex from the H100 pump to a molex adapter and attach that to the molex connector on the power supply? Would that reduce volts? Or is the only way to reduce volts to connect pump molex to molex adapter and then connect the three pin to motherboard?

I bought a new H100 with lot number 12###### and i connected it to molex adapter then to power supply thinking that would reduce volts. Please tell me which us the correct way. Thanks.

And yes, undervolting the unit does undervolt the fans attached to it, but if the controller uses closed-loop feedback (it seems to me it does) then the speed shouldn't change (only the max speed would be lower).

stn0092 - good question, one that should be answered by George and announced

Remmi - if the pump initially runs at ~2100 RPM, one diode should bring it to about 1900 RPM. If it's at 2200 RPM (12,3V PSU), then two diodes would bring it down to about 1800 RPM. For the data you provided, you should try two 1N4007 in series and that would give you around 11,2V and >1700 RPM.

dragonsamus - What if you connect the molex from the H100 pump to a molex adapter and attach that to the molex connector on the power supply? To what kind of a molex adapter? If you mean a diode adapter, then yes, that's the way to do it, connect it between the H80/H100 and the PSU.


Again, I'm on vacation so I won't be here frequently. If you have an urgent question, please direct it to PM and I will see an e-mail notification.

Hi all, im not sure if this will help anyone with this "pump noise issue" but......when my H60 started making "the noise" i went into my Mobo BIOs and told it to ignore the fan header and not monitor the rpm and so the noise stopped and never heard it again. Previously the same fan header was just on and monitoring rpm, but switching it over to IGNORE the sound from pump stopped. Now my Pump runs at 4400-4500 rpm no issue.

Like i say this might just be me being lucky , but if it helps someone else so be it.

On a side note , it's nice to see a Corsair Rep appear here and address the concerns of us customers, hats off to you sir !

Source? I PM'd corsair george regarding this claim but he has yet to respond.

Just thought I would report back.
Requested an advanced RMA through Corsair support. Received a replacement unit sent via UPS about a week later. Installed new unit and all appears to be running well. No ticking or strange noises coming from the replacement H100.

Overall a pretty good experience and I feel Corsair has done a decent job in addressing my issue over the defective H100 I had.

Kudos to Corsair and CorsairGeorge for doing right by their customers.

I received my third H100 (1227...) and after the buble are "managed by the pump" the noise goes a little down, but it's still pulsing noise and produce exactly the same noise as the previous one.

Is there anything I can do, since Corsair George announced they "fixed" the problem one month ago I am in RMA process and removing and installing a new pump just take too much time :-(

Does anyone got any idea on what could be done against that pulsing noise (both when I connect it directly to the PSU and to my fan controller at any voltage) ?
