Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 126

post #1251 of 1734
This is very strange... I've connected the H100 fans in pull. Before it was push... but the temps will not change no matter if it's pull or push and high RPM or not... I'm using RealTemp.

How can this be???

also, I just got new 2 cougar vortex fans and they have this annoying grinding noise... I have no luck with cooling devices...

Well, the diode trick did the job. The pump runs at 1960 +/- 100rpm (from 2100 +/- 100rpm) and no noise.

I did try a Schottky diode first as that's all the local store had in stock. It work to start with but once the pump warmed up the noise started again frown.gif

However, a friend came to the rescue tongue.gif She had a few 1N4001 diodes laying around that I could have. And they appear to sorted it out. After 30mins of Prime still no noise biggrin.gif

First off, motherboard temperature sensors are horrible. They don't mean anything. The only thing they really can be used for is temperature trending. So if the temperature is going up or if it is going down. The actual number really is pretty useless.

Having said that... the H100 is pretty efficient. I imagine you would have similar temps with wither a push or pull setup especially if you are close to ambient already. My temps hold steady with a push or pull setup as well. I hesitate to give a number as it is meaningless, but it is 26ºC. Having both push and pull I might get 25ºC. I should also note that I have my radiator inside of my case at the end of my graphics cards.

Nah... this is my first. I do have a Corsair Vengeance headset that I bought, but have yet to open though.
I just got it hooked up this afternoon (the H100). It has a clicking noise, but not the grinding noise. It could be air in the loop perhaps. I do have the radiator lower than the pump so that could be it, but the Corsair 600t case can't mount the H100 in the top... :/
Oh okay, I confused you with someone else, sorry.

And yes, you can mount the H100 in a 600T without offsetting it to the side, but you put the radiator inside and the fans above it, under the top cover. I did that myself. It's a good idea to cut the plastic cross-beams from the top cover because they block most of the air flow.

Yes and I guess either have a pull fan configuration or push as an intake at the top... Either way I'm not sure temps would change much. It is hard to break my attachment to "bottom front = intake & back top = exhaust" though haha.

Hey guys, this info is probably better suited for another thread, but I really don’t come here much just to say hi to wlw_wl once in a while.

Found this amazing little SSD tweak called RAM-Caching and gave it a try. Anyone with an SSD can use it.

This 1st screenshot is the normal Intel 520 120GB Read/Write speeds and in the 2nd I allocated 6GB of my 8GB of RAM to the SSD READ speeds, with the RAM-Cache tweak. I allocated zero RAM to Write speeds, that is why they remained the same.

If you wish to increase the overall responsiveness of your rig, this is a very simple method.

Enjoy!smile.gif

Yep, RAM Disks are great... even better so when they are used as a primary disk cache. I would say though NOT to do this unless you have your computer on battery backup. If you lose power you could end up with an unbootable OS or at the very least lost data.

I have lost power many times during the latest tropical storm and had no issues at all, the software remembers your settings and reboots right into them.

Here is the free trial download guys:

Don't know Gil, this is mine at 4.2Ghz/2133Mhz Vcore is 1.282 and Pull-Intake:

Could move your rig to a colder portion of your office or room where the refrigerated air exhausts out and direct it straight into the top of your chassis, that might help bro.

Why do my two inner cores run so hot and my outer cores so much cooler, is that just the physical nature of the Ivy nano-topography? Does everyone's 3770K follow this same pattern? weird...

Try this hardware monitor Gil, and see what you come up with:

Then you got lucky and it occured while nothing was being used in cache or at least nothing that was being changed. The nature of RAM disks are in themselves volatile. I agree there are great speed improvements, but that doesn't negate the risk. Though if there wasn't some risk there wouldn't be any improvement of speed. The software could be double writing, but that would defeat the purpose.
