Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 129

post #1281 of 1734
is it normal for the h100 fans to make a whinning/buzzing sound when undervolted? if its at 40% speed on my fan controller (sorry it has sliders i don't know the actual voltage, or at about full speed it doesn't make the sound) but when its in between its making a buzz

SILENCE AT LAST!

Thank you so much wlw wl, the second adapter did the trick! Now I can finally only hear the fan air movement and every now and then some little noise from my data hdd!

Enjoy a little extra thank you gift smile.gif

JAM3S121 - normal? Probably not, but it makes sense, the fans are driven with a modulated voltage so when you change the input voltage, the width of the driving signal will change (this applies to fans which are connected to the H80/H100 itself).

FloppyNL - shouldn't have, but thanks! Glad to hear it's finally working for you thumb.gif

Yes fans have optimum speeds for noise levels. It isn't uncommon for a certain rpm to resonate a certain buzz. You can try rubber spacers, loosening/tightening the screws, etc.
Also you should make sure that at 40% the fan is actually spinning. If you start your computer with a low fan speed setting the fan might not spin up. I'm not sure how low your fan controller takes them. They make a buzzing noise when just on the verge of starting.

hey i just RMA'd my H100 today its batch number was 12xxxxxxx.I know i should have wrote it down but i didnt! i had 2 issues with mine. the fan speed control on the cpu block didnt work,and it also made the grinding noise!

the thing about the grinding was it was'nt constant it jumped in and out! i thought first it maybe air after the install but 4 days later it was still doing it. If i flicked the edge of the block it would stop.

I also tryed the firmeware reset to fix the fans and that changed nothing for me. fans were always stuck at a low rpm setting!

I think that is a problem with the fan controller. Majority of people in the phantom 410 thread have faulty fan controllers that do that.Email NZXT and they will send you a new one. I haven't bothered doing mine yet because of rewiring.

I just received and installed wlw wl's Molex Adapter. My noise was pretty intermittent so it will take a day or two to really see if the noise is gone.

btw... Is there any software programs out there that let you see the radiator fan speeds, pump temp, pump speed, etc.? I have the CorsairLink which allows all of this but it doesn't work under Windows 8 and quite frankly didn't work all that well under Windows 7 (another H Series like fiasco?).

The pump speed is reported via the single-wire 3-pin fan connector coming out of the H100, as for the Link you need the Link hardware, I understand that you have the controller, if it's connected to the H!00 but doesn't work, well, what can I say rolleyes.gif You said it all.

Pro-suggestion:

1) RMA Corsair H80/H100
2) Sell Replacement on OCN, Ebay, Amazon, etc
3) Buy Cooler Master Eisberg (rumored to be released in October)
....
4) Profit (well at least in terms of time!)

It will debut for 130/140 Euros for the 120/240 mm radiator versions respectively, but products are usually released 1:1 in terms of price between the US and Europe. In other words, I expect the product to cost $130/$140, which in my opinion is a very fair premium for a product with better cooling and dependability (it's made in Germany).
