Good!

Just a note, if you come here and you need an RMA, there's a link in the first post of this thread, which will point you to CorsairGeorge's instructions on what to do to get the "selective RMA".

It is now time to tell everyone about wlw wl enormous kindness!smile.gif
I ordered these adapters from him through PM and he send my two ones even before I had the time to even pay for them!smile.gif
I got extremely happy now because our H100 (2 ones) is now deadly silent!smile.gif
Thanks to you wlw wl
So, everyone that has this issue, try this, after several RMA we got deadly tired of this cooler and now we are happy owners again:)

Hi,
this post is a continuation of this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1209387/corsair-h100-pump-noise/60#post_17968987

Using the advice of wlw wl, I used two diodes since one only got the pump at 1970RPM and it was still noisy.

Currently I have 1N4004 in serial with 1N5189 (or 5819 biggrin.gif) and the pump is at ~1865RPM and silent.

HOWEVER, and it's a big however smile.gif I moved one of the tubes on purpose and the grinding noise came again. So I tapped on the pump 3 times and it stopped the noise. Tap once more and the noise comes back, tap again and it's gone... you got the picture.

What would you do if you were in my place? Would you first try to replace it from the store and if it happens again, do a selective RMA with corsair or stick with what I've got?

here are the results:

Good news! When I called two days ago about my replacement H100, I was told they are back-ordered and won't ship until at least 23rd of August.

Does selective RMA mean that the shipping fee is waived?
post #1106 of 1687
so there's really no way to silence the h60 unless you rma it? this thing is so ******* loud, and my roommate will not appreciate the noise....

danne77sthlm - you're welcome thumb.gif

Gil80 - this is what I call "the unit is on the edge" and it happens every now and then. Replace that Schottky with 1N400x so you have two 1N400x in series and it should be silent and stable.

coolxal - yes, you'll either get a pre-paid shipping label or they will dispatch an UPS courier to pick up the unit from your place, and with the second option they take most people by surprise because they usually don't notify you before the pickup, so unless you opt for the advance RMA, you should prepare the unit shortly after receiving RMA approval.

leighteam - you can connect it to one of the motherboard's fan headers that can be adjusted from the BIOS or some software and slow the pump down from there. Or to some fan controller. Just be careful to set it to one value and not to go lower than 1700 - 1800 RPM (you might see double the speed readout with H60, so you'd see 3400 - 3600 RPM).

I am sorry to post for those who still have problem with there H100 : my fixed one (1227) is absolutely inaudible and it's really a tremendous peace of hardware !!!

I will definitely buy other products from Corsair (the problem I had with my previous pump are long forgotten) :-)

On a saddening note... my brother's second Corsair SSD just died after 3 months (the other one lasted 5 months). No warning... black screen of death and then BIOS doesn't recognize it. All data on drive lost (which thankfully for a 2nd storage hard drive, is close to nothing.)

While my "super bad" OCZ "Crapdrive" (Vertex 2), has been worked flawlessly and fast for 2 years. My Vertex 4 hasn't gave me any problems so far either.

thinking.gif I told them to sell the replacement drive and get an OCZ Vertex 4. Me thinks it's a good idea.

Have two H60s in my latest workstation build. Sadly have the same noise from both. One is definitely louder than the other. I need to play with SpeedFan some more but I don't think my Asus Z9PE-D8 WS is supported or properly registered as I don't see the reading for the fan headers controlling the pumps like I do in the bios. Plus the Bios on this workstation board does not have direct fan control, just 3 overall speed profiles.

May be buying a couple diodes from wlw wl very soon as taking these coolers out would be an immense chore considering the modding required to get them in my case in the first place. Must have silence!
