Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 160

post #1591 of 1734
Can someone confirm that this is the resistor needed (Performance-PCs link) for an H80 unit ??

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_82&products_id=25975

I have an open RMA for my H80 that was just approved earlier this week, but I will be damned if I can find one of the stock Corsair fans to RMA mine. I replaced the stock fans with 2 GT 1850's and packed away the stock fans, but pulled one only to misplace it. I purchased my H80 back in September of last year, and the pump is grating now more than ever. I'm desperate to make it stop.

Okay I now know why it dosent work, becasue apperently the 3pin is only a sensor. So another question!

would it work if I buy a Molex (female) to a 3pin (male) and connect that 3pin to my fan controller and then set the fan speed?

With wlw wl out of commission, I decided to build my own voltage droppers. Pump is now running at a shade under 1800 RPM, and is absolutely silent. Temperatures haven't gone up, so I'm happy smile.gif

Turns out I need to get a new PSU in any case as the damn thing has the loudest coil whine I have ever encountered, but you can't have everything I guess biggrin.gif
post #1595 of 1734
Is anyone still selling "voltage droppers" I am in need of one I have tried every possible way, and I cant unfortunately create my own. ( lack of skills) So is anyone selling shipping these to sweden It would be most wonderful. biggrin.gif

^ I have very little understanding and experience about these things, but still, I did it. biggrin.gif
just follow wlw wl's instructions and accompanying photos, you should be fine.thumb.gif

I'm not sure if it has been posted already in the copious amounts of pages in this thread, but I recently bought a H60 refurbished at Frys at their sale price. It turns out that I had a unit with the grinding pump noise. Every source I read on how to fix this either entailed a voltage dropper, or a fan controller to be added to your system.

I decided to see if I could make a little workaround to not having to do either of these things. Instead of connecting my pump's 3 pin connector to the 3 pin PWR_1 (or commonly shown in the UEFI BIOS as the unmodifiable Power Fan connection. I decided to connect it to a 3 pin chassis fan connection on the motherboard. Since chassis fan speeds can be changed through the BIOS, it was a simple change of making the pump fan to be set to level 8 (rather than level 9) for "fan" speed. After this fix, pure blissfully silent water cooling. Like I sad before, I'm not sure if this has been already stated in this thread, but this fix worked perfectly for me and I though I'd like to share it so someone else doesn't have to do nearly as much troubleshooting with it. Plus it saves you having to mess with voltage droppers or fan controllers.


(For reference, my motherboard is the solid, but mildly cheap ASRock H60-iCafe mobo)

I hope this helps anyone that stumbles upon this thread. And I have to throw my hat to say that this thread helped me a lot in troubleshooting this problem. Good luck in fixing it if you have to!

that's great and very easy fix for h60 use sir, unfortunaty the h80 and h100 (not sure about h70 though) uses a molex/peripheral connector so it's a bit more complicated.; )

Heh, I realized that, but I thought I'd throw it out there for the h60 users in this thread that might be looking for an easy and cheap fix to the problems. Especially with Frys having their copious deals on refurbed h60s.

Diode mod fixed my H100.

Had to use 2 diodes but it went from MOTORCYCLE to ninja smile.gif
