Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 117

post #1161 of 1734
Even if you could place the cooler in a vacuum the noise is a symptom of a bigger problem not the problem itself, right?

And just last night I was considering buying a corsair watercooling kit for my new rig, on second thoughts...thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Exactly.

It's their loss. I buy tons and tons of items from them. They were my GOTO store besides any other store. Unfortunately, I am a "smart buyer" and I know when I get defective, recalled, and miss-advertised products.. and I don't just "accept" it.

Now because of their extreme ban hammer policy, they will no longer receive my money. Even if they were to re-open my account, I would not shop there anymore. Their ban policy is like a slap into your face.

Imagine going into Walmart and you're immediately escorted out and told "you or any of your family members are not allowed to enter another Walmart, ever again. Period. Now get out!!!"

Zero warnings. Not once did they say "Hey, quit returning [defective] stuff or your account will be closed!"

mad.gif


On a lighter note, why did they name the H100... "100" and not H120 for the 120mm radiator width, or H240 for the 240mm length? lol

For god's sake... why H100i... trying to copy Apple much?

If they were trying to copy Apple they would have called it the iH100. Hmmm... could be short for I Hate my 100 thumb.gif

btw... is there anything else out there that is comparable to the H100 and doesn't have any defects?

I'm also surprised that some Lawyer hasn't tried to start a Class Action Suit. I suppose there isn't enough H100's out there to justify it.

kennyparker1337 - I think that is to keep on par with the AX1200i PSU, where "i" stand for supposedly intelligent, as it's all electronic this and clever that. Maybe now the AX1200i + H100i makes for a super intelligent stuff or whatever, or they are just adding "i" to stuff that has the Link connectivity, as that PSU does.

streetwolf - yes there is, Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme, which is made by Asetek and has a 240 RAD as well. There are 120 versions as well. It's a bit more expensive from what I've seen, but it has a sturdier pump design (a modernized Asetek pump seen previously on their other stuff, including Corsair H50 / H70) and doesn't have the somewhat wacky fan controller which for me personally is a +.

ed: too much stuff in this stuff

The Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme looks sweet. It's nice that they let you control it in software without adding additional hardware like Corsair's CorsairLink Commander. I've had my share of problems with my CorsairLink Commander and software on top of my H100 problems. CL is a POS IMO

Does the Thermaltake have the flatness issue that the H100 has?

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.

Well, that's obvious. All cores can't run at the same temps. Some cores might be requiring more power than others, which can result in higher temps. Even on the stock cooler that core can still run hotter than the others.. On my H100 it was the 3rd core which was running hottest and the first one was the coolest. With an Intel stock cooler, the same story repeats.

It's not something to worry about it unless one core is 50° higher than others tongue.gif

streetwolf - probably none of the CPUs' IHS are really flat, so don't worry about that.

Nitrius, Faithh - and the core placement is also very important. When you get into the CPU structure, there are many regions of which each and every one has a different characteristic. As far as I recall the hottest part of the CPU is the cache, so if the CPU structure is asymmetrical, you might see situations like thirf and fourth core being hotter than the rest etc. Also sensor placement plays a role. So it's nothing to worry about and nothing that can be corrected outside of the CPU.

Continued from here: I received a third H80, now from lot 1227, and the rattling noise is definitely still there. When the pump is orientated upwards, there is no noise at all; when tilted at 90° (like if installed), it makes a medium rattling noise, which won't stop under any circumstance; and when tilted upside-down, it makes a loud rattling noise, but which stops instantly if I tap the tubing or heatsink a single time.

I guess I'll just call it a day and go grab some 1N400x at the hardware store.
