Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 116

post #1151 of 1734
wlw wl, see if you can understand what I try to describe and what you make of it biggrin.gif

in regards to high temps with the new H100 I received yesterday.

when I hold the pump unit against the CPU, just before using the thumb screws I do the following:
1 hand is holding the pump, 2nd hand I place/press one of the pumps mounting corners (where the thumb screws go over), then I realize that the pump block levels to the pressure I applied.

Holding the new level as applied pressure on one corner, I then apply with my finger pressure on the opposite corner and now the pump levels to the opposite corner.

This leads to a conclusion that the LGA 1155 mounting bracket does not provide even levelling and the pump block doesn't apply even pressure across the CPU thermal casing.

Not necessarily a thicker radiator but perhaps going with revising the pump design to something similar to coolermasters:

kennyparker1337 - they sell crap and then they are surprised people are trying to return or replace it? Well if they don't like your money, take it somewhere else, it's not you who will lose...

Gil80 - I told you before (or somebody else) - the CPU isn't flat and the cooler isn't flat, and on top of that the brackets aren't straight, so... yeah, a see-saw.

twitchyzero - "lol instead of fixing this they are now going to just release a new model" - George has explicitly stated that the remaining flaws and problems with Hydro series will not be addressed in the current models.
So if it's H100i, not H120 or w/e, it seems they aren't scrapping this wacky CoolIT design and returning to Asetek, but trying to fix this.or maybe it's just an updated mounting bracket.
It would be interesting to see if it incorporates any of the fixes that I suggested to their staff, like initial input voltage regulation on the pump's PCB. Should have patented that weirdsmiley.gif
Anyway these "leaks" are not to be trusted, because these people apparently have no idea what they are talking about: "One of the notable difference in in H80i/H100i is Corsair Link" - hello, H80 and H100 had the Link connectivity already.

So the H coolers do not sit flat on the CPU. Is their a recommendation on how to deal with this? Do I loosen or tighten all the bracket screws or have some combination? Or... do I 'eat' the problem and add to the list of Corsair's mistakes with their coolers?

Could this not sitting flat be the reason CPU core 4 is about 4/5c higher than my other cores or is this normal for all Quad Core CPUS? I have a 3770K btw

That's something i've been wondering myself for quite some time. Though here it is core 0 and 2 that is higher with about 3/4c.

Anyway, i bought the H100 last week, and was one of the unlucky ones with the sound from the pump, but i "fixed" that with the diode trick that was found. And beside that the cooler seems to be working fine. So am wondering, do those coolers that have the sound have a higher chance of "dying" earlier than it should? Or isn't the sound to any harm at all? Beside being annoying of course. The reason am asking is because am not sure if i should go for an RMA or not, if the sound really isn't to any harm beside being annoying i don't really want to spent the time to wait for the new one to arrive from Corsair.

My core 1 runs about 3-4 degrees higher than the others.

My gut feeling tells me this 'flat' issue is not a fixable thing by messing with the screws. After all if it isn't flat to begin with you are not going to make it flat by tightening and or loosening screws. In fact you'd probably make things worse.

At this point I am very hesitant in going through with the RMA process knowing that folks are still getting bad units. My H100 noise has lessened considerably over the last few weeks. In fact it's been hours since I turned on my machine and I haven't heard the usual cooler noise. OOPS stop the presses, the noise just came back as I am writing this. Let me give my case a good rap. RAP. Noise now gone.

What a predicament, live with a very minor annoyance at this point or risk even bigger problems with a new unit. I suppose if the new one is worse I could just put my old one back and return the new unit to Corsair, but there is always a risk in removing and installing units. I could wind up being the cause of a screw up.

If I don't receive silence with my replacement, I'll consider using this:
