Same result. First PSU is some 7 years-old 250W OEM scrap pulled from a broken computer, second one is the 1 year-old Antec TP-750 I have in my main rig, which according to the BIOS, outputs an exact +12.000V

i guess if your h100 replacemente is still faulty..it wouldn't seem unreasonable for them send you a h100i
assuming this is a revised h100 will come out

That would seem perfectly reasonable, as long as there are actually any significant changes to the pump and its controller.
But that product isn't even vaguely announced yet, and they never discuss rumors and TBD products.

It's my understanding the whole H series cooler 'defect' has been going on for a long time. When will companies step up to the plate (baseball term for those where football/soccer is the only sport they care about :-) ) and take responsibility for their mistakes? Sure a company doesn't want to admit mistakes since they open themselves up to law suits and the like. Keeping quiet is an old tried and true method of avoiding bad press and suits.

In many cases it takes government intervention to get these companies to issue a recall of defective products. This is one of the few good thing about governments.

I'm particularly peeved that when I reported my H100 noise problem, albeit it was in the CorsairLink forum, no one, not even RAMGUY, made mention of the H series defect. He had the nerve to denigrate me for getting on his case for not coming clean with the H100 issues.

I've lost much respect for Corsair and will take my business elsewhere.

Stepping off soap box now, paying my 2 cents.

The official response is "we sold thousands and thousands of these and only a very small percentage is RMA'ed", which is in this thread as well. That sentence makes it even funnier to see professional reviewers smacking the H100 with a ruler to make it shut up because it spoils the video biggrin.gif

Is it me or the fans have no effect what so ever on the radiator? The H100 240mm radiator seems to be not effected by RPM of the fans and the temps stay still at full speed and at 0 speed.

Not so clear on what you mean. If you are saying that your fan speeds don't seem to change speeds when temps change I haven't seen this. You may or may not know that the fans adjust their speed to the temp of the liquid coolant in the pump and not things like CPU temp.

Here's a chart showing how the three modes of the H cooler react to temp and change the RPM of the fans.

http://www.corsair.com/media/cms/Blog/H100_buildlog/profile_chart.jpg

IMO the method of changing speeds by having to manually press the button on the cooler itself is pretty lame. From the chart it's obvious that a coolant temp of 40 is high so why 3 modes? Why not have one mode that spans the whole range of temps? Why do I have to open my case and push a button? But then again they wouldn't be able to sell you a Corsair Link Commander to do this with software.

Guess everyone has heard the news about the new H100i and H80i, news broke 2days ago. It is going to be interesting, I guess the little i at the end means they are Digital, haha, who knows. Also a new chassis, the Obsidian 900D, it looks very nice.

Hope when someone first receives an H100i as their RMA, they will post the auditory output here.

I am guessing Corsair will go for a completely new pump design, so they can "turn the page" on this issue altogether.

Have a great weekend bro!smile.gif

I have a hurricane to deal with starting Monday. Yikes…

Turn the page you say? Did Corsair really have any page to turn? If they did they waited way too long to turn it.
