Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 112

kennyparker1337 - I think there aren't many differences between OCZ SF SSDs and Corsair SF SSDs, you could say that Agility = Force 3 and Vertex = Force GT. If the drive just dies, and more than one piece, it probably means that the controller gets busted and I'd look closely at the PSU as the possible cause.

I just had my H100 replaced following the Selective RMA process linked at the start of the thread. Mine started grinding after about six months so I'm not sure if that can be put down to voltage or not. Started infrequently, and a tap would fix it but became more and more frequent until it was constant and no amount of tapping or moving the case around would solve it.

Anyways Thanks wlw wl for this thread and for following up with Corsair.

For anyone contemplating the RMA - do it. I first received an RMA authorisation but to ship from AUS to Hong Kong was going to cost $65 AUD. I was starting to think is it really worth it. Then I saw the link here and contacted Corsair again and they offered a pre paid shipping label.

Don't forget tho you need to organise the pickup yourselves (UPS website) I wasted about a week because I wasn't sure if creating the label would automatically generate a pick up request.

Once I sorted that out - the turnaround from pick up from Hobart, Australia to the new product being delivered to my door from Hong Kong was around 7 days.

Can't fault that.

Thanks CorsairGeorge, Huge thanks to wlw wl

Cheers
Jimma

Glad you got it sorted out!
That's how the procedure should work, but unfortunately there are still people. who got the replacements lot# 1227+ and these are still making noises, so the good old adapter finds a new home every now and then thumb.gif

Hi,

My H80 is still doing good with the voltage adapter.

The H80 in my friend computer wasn't making any noise, we were feeling lucky on that one.
But more recently, his H80 began making the grinding noise but only at the startup of the computer.
It stop been noisy pretty fast, i dont know exactly how much time it takes but i think it's less than a minute, but could be two..
I wont touch it untli it get worse, if ever.
I have my spare adapter lying on my table between my keyboard and my screen so i'll be able to just put it in if it became needed.

See ya.

Hi wlw wl,

I haven't been in contact with you what so ever, but I have copied your design, and I just want to thank you for your knowledge and help, my cooler pump is now dead silent (H100 batch 121XXXX) after I made up a diode plug fix. There wasn't much noise before but now there is none what so ever.

BTW on stock clocks (2600K) with only the 2 corsair fans on medium in my cm690ii advanced, I'm getting 21 - 22 degree's on idle and a maximum of 40 degree's on all cores on full load with prime95, planning to overclock soon after I've finished researching how to do it properly with the proper volts etc.

So cheers from down under for all your help,
Brett

21 degree idle... do you live in Alaska or Russia by chance?

LOL Nah South Australia, I have a total of 7 Fans in my case with an extremely positive airflow, I can take a screen shot if need be, this info has been confirmed with RealTemp, Coretemp, and another program I can't remember, remember though, that's at stock clocks.

Also it is winter here at the moment to.

What does it mean positive air flow?

? not sure if you can google or not, but basically it means a lot of air coming into the case, in fact more air coming in than going out
