Mine used to do this, it eventually stopped on it's own. I thought it was just because it was new tongue.gif

I tried the 1N4001 and it did not help. I ended up soldering a male 3 pin fan header to a female molex so that I may hook up the pump to my fan controller. As such, I was able to find the right RPM for my unit where sound was no longer an issue. It seems about 1786 RPM is the sweet spot on mine. What is the lowest RPM considered "safe" for this one?

The pump is so weak that it's hard to judge that X RPM would be too slow but X+50 would be okay. The temperature will tell you the truth.

Gotcha. Will do a series of tests and report back. From 2250 to 1950 it was only 1c difference, will see how it scales downwards.

Keep in mind that if you have the fans connected to the H100, you are slowing down the fans as well and I'd go ahead and speculate that the temperature difference you're seeing is caused by the fans spinning slower, not the pump ( mentioned it on the previous page).

In the end the water flow in this unit is very low (between 1 to 2 liters per minute), and I've been taught that 90% times zero is still zero tongue.gif

Right. The fans are hooked up to a different front panel controller so the speed is constant., I took that in account wink.gif. From my testing the difference between 2250 RPM on the pump at 1786 is 2C on a 2500k at 1.48v (75c vs 77c after 2 hours prime95 blend 90% memory @ 25c ambient. I'm sure the difference would be smaller for those running lower voltages. Idle temps are identical.

Hope that useless piece of information helps someone, as I'm about to rip it out of my system and pass it down to it's rightful owner =)

Time for a custom loop smile.gif

I haven't yet received and installed my "voltage dropper". Yet, I have a remark/question regarding the control of the H100's stock fans speed.

I noticed that when you play with the H100 fan controller button, the speed of the fans (the 2 stock ones that are plugged in the pump) adjusts to the option you choose, weither it's silent mode, standard mode or performance mode. So the controller button on the pump indeed works: it controls the speed of the H100 fans.

However, I noticed that the CPU fan in Fan Xpert (Asus AI Suite II software) always stays between 2100-2200 rpm when I press on the H100 button to change the speed of the fans. I read somewhere that your motherboard only reads the rpm of the pump itself and not the rpm of the fans plugged in the pump. Therefore, the constant rpm that I see for the CPU Fan in Fan Xpert, which never changes regardless the profile I choose with the button, would only represent the speed of the pump and not the speed of the fans. Can anyone confirm this and maybe elaborate furthermore?

If this is correct, I assume that the profile I choose with the H100 button would have no effect what so ever on the rpm reading of my CPU fan in my software once I install the "voltage dropper". Am I right? If so, will I be able to see the amount of rpm dropping for the "CPU fan" in Fan Xpert when I will connect the "voltage dropper"??? For example, will Fan Xpert show me that the RPM for the CPU fan dropped from 2166 rpm to ~1950 rpm when I installed the "voltage dropper"???

When you connect it, it is only dropping the pump speed what you see on the Fan Xpert software. I have the same software, Asus P8Z68 Deluxe board. The fan speed..you don't know and it is not shown. Now if you want to plug them into the MB, that's another route.

The CPU Fan reading you are seeing is the H100 pump ONLY. You wont be able to read the fan RPM if you have them hooked into the h100 block. The voltage dropper WILL have an effect on your "CPU Fan" as that is actually the pump reading, as well will also slow down your actual fans slightly as they are drawing power from the same molex connector that your pump does. That's IF they are hooked up into the h100 block. So yes you will see an RPM drop in your monitoring software

Yeah it all make sense now,

I know it depends on whatever your activites usually are when you're on your computer, as well as to how good your cooling system is in your case, however, I'm just curious as to which profile you guys use for the fan speed of the H100 (silent, standard or performance)? Which one do you usually leave it on once you've added the voltage dropper?

Mine is currently set to the medium profile. Although, when I will install the voltage dropper and start playing Diablo 3 for example, should I set my H100 fans to "performance"? Is this what you guys would do if you had my PC (see specs below)?
