Regarding corsairs response, idk wether to believe them or not. And regarding buying a h100 im fed up with umming and arring about it, im just gonna say screw it and buy one and if it grinds i'll just rma it to corsair who will hopefully give me a "fixed" one.

I almost did the same, but if I got a noisy one, or another noisy one after an RMA, I'd be kicking myself because of all the forewarning. I've just ordered the Raystorm kit, so my quandry over this issue is, thankfully over.

I hope you get a good one, but by all I've read on the subject, and I've spent weeks reading and agonizing over this, there seems to be an inherent design flaw that Corsair/CoolIT are refusing to address. Getting a unit after a certain manufacturing date does not seem to be solving this flaw, and from the leaks I've read about, the "Improved" versions will not address it either.

I've liked Corsair products, but they seem to be dropping the ball and burying their heads in the sand with this product.

i know what you mean and am not really happy buying knowing it could contain the issue. But then ive posted in other forums and people have h100's with no issues/grinding at all. I guess because this thread is dedicated to it, it seems a lot worse as everyones posting their problems in one thread. I will probably get it next week sometime so wish me luck! smile.gif will test out of case first and for leaks etc and will see if it makes the dreaded grind!

I've thought that myself.. The people with problems post, and thousands without do not. It makes sense!

In any case, I wish you the best of luck, and hope you get a good one.

Thanks guys for your kind words! cheers.gif

Of course this is a thread about a problem, so most people posting here are those with this problem. This creates an illusion that most people generally have that problem, which isn't necessarily true.
My biggest concern are those people who did 3-4 RMAs and still had the same issues, because once you have this problem, it doesn't matter if it's 1% or 50% who has it, you just want it gone.

Yes that is a worry, people who had more than one rma says to me that either the problem is consistent in one form or another across multiple units or that they are just unlucky, im thinking its the first but i hope im wrong and all will be good! smile.gif

Yes that does indicate presence of system-specific factors that influence the operation of the unit.
An example would be a voltage noise (ripple) and EMI, which would depend on the PSU and other components. I talked about it a couple of pages back, and probably more than once.

I think that Corsair is probably limited in what they can do to fix this issue, since it is a CoolIT design that Corsair has put their name on for marketing purposes. But, I wonder if CoolIT would reach out to wlw wl for his ideas and expertise in how to repair the issues via a new or modified design. Or, sinse Asetek was granted a patent on AIO coolers, and seems on the verge of bringing suit against CoolIT for patent infringement, whether CoolIT will ultimately invest in an upgraded design until legal issues are settled?

All very interesting. I liked the all-in-one coolers for convenience, and for software and choices to control cooling parameters. I guess we'll just have to wait and see..

I have contacted CoolIt about this whole thing quite a long time ago, on March 31, 2012. I wrote to Andrew Wildgoose at Coolit Systems and at the end of the e-mail I asked: "I was curious if the underlaying cause of these problems is being researched and/or if you were interested in hearing my two cents about this from a user's (with some experience in electronics) perspective." and the reply I got was:

Wojciech,
I will need to point out that any concerns or questions concerning Corsair products, should be directed to Corsair.
So it is considered a Corsair product, therefore I believe that Corsair is the one to incorporate design changes, but we can't know what exactly is the deal between them.

That is interesting, shame that corsair arent doing more to fix the issue as its still CLEARLY present after people have had rma after rma.
