Yes it is, I received mine today. I have 4 fans doing a push-pull, and the voltage dropper is like magic. The pump is DEAD silent, going at 1956-1983 RPM from the 2093-2100 I had before. I will still have to do an RMA from looks of it, doing a firmware reset now.
It is okay, but judging from the RPM, the adapter might not be dropping the full 1,0V because the fans odn' draw a lot of current at all. But if it's silent, all is well

Something is definitely not right with this unit. Thanks a million wlw wl, the voltage dropper is awesome. What the hell is wrong with Corsair, why don't they see this as an issue?
You're welcome! This is indeed strange and might be a sign of faulty controller IC, if you want to bother going through the whole RMA process (time, money) then go ahead, you can request an advanced RMA if you don't want the downtime.

I was hoping that the new units made after January 2012 (so lot $s 1206+) would be fixed, but they aren't apparently as there are people reporting the same problems with them.
I'll send you the adapters you requested and you'll be safe and future-proof
I posted the exact post on their forum and they modified it. Nice QC on the forums but not on their products.

- The third-time exchanged H80 is from batch #11459402. So far running IBT for 24 Hours at Maximum @ 4.5GHz with 16GB of RAM--this unit is not making the loud irritating grinding noise. I don't have faith that it will continue to run silently so I am in dialogue with wlw_wl for a pair of his adapters because his adapters are so much prettier than mine. :biggrin:

What was wrong with saying yours are prettier than mine?
Well their forum rules prohibit item selling/trading and they love to use that rule, I was banned on that basis 3 times:
1st for talking about the adapters via PM,
2nd for having the "Need an adapter? PM or mail me!" in a signature,
and the latest 3rd for answering a guy who was asking about the full acrylic 600T side panel - I said that shipping costs would be monstrous and I got perm banned for that, but the ban was promptly lifted without any action from me, but instead now all my posts have to be mod-approved
So you said something about me or about the voltage dropper and apparently they decided to sweep the whole thing under the carpet, apparently ignoring the problem isn't enough for them anymore.

Unfortunately not. I have that damn annoying sound and saw your fix for it. How much would it cost to get a cable sent and how long will it take from your country. Does the adapter lower performance or should I just ram and hope for the best?
for priority + express mail, the ETA would be under 14 days and the total cost would be around $10 AUD. I don't really charge for the adapter itself, only so much to cover the cost of the parts (connectors, diode, sleeve) and the rest is shipping.thierryp77
is from down under as well, you might ask him how long exactly did it take for his adapter to arrive.
