Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 19

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)?

I leave mine crunk up all the way.

After I get my replacement unit, I will install it out of the box and see if I have the same noise issue without the dropper.

Some people seem to think the lot number for the pumps are irrelevant, and the the pumps have poor design, but what explains why certain pumps are silent and others have the noise? The lot number of my current H100 is mentioned several times with the noise problem. IDK...

There's more to that - why one pump is silent in one system but the same pump rattles in another?
PSU? Tension on the screws? Order of tightening the screws? Amount of TIM? Exact placement of the backplate?
There's literally thousands of variables.

As for the profiles, the fans' speed on any of the profiles isn't constant, it is regulated based on the coolant temperature, the profiles just determine the bottom and the upper speed limits for the fans.

Exactly, that was my question on the "other" site. Some seem to think the lot numbers are not relevant to the discussion there, and the pump has a bad design. If it was just bad design, ALL the pumps would make that noise, looks to be a QC issue lumped in? That place seems to have some real jerks for lack of a better term. It would seem as though with such a widespread issue people would want all information shared, involved, discussed, and it would seem as though Corsair would chime in more about it.

It would make sense if everyone had the issue but I have been using mine for around 90 days now without the slightest hiccup or sound. It is the quietest thing in my system

Why should the customer be charged for shipping for an RMA if the unit is faulty?

Why should people need to create their own fix? If this thing is a piece of crap Corsair should accept responsibility. Clearly Corsair is just reselling it under their own logo. So the manufacturer needs to redesign it and Corsair should do something about it.

One thing would be to make the H100 easier to fit in a case. Shouldn't have to drill holes in the case to mount the radiator.

I agree that the customer shouldn't have to pay for shipping. I was able to talk certain companies into sending me a shipping label however (Evga, Logitech). You can offset this by using the XX days return policy from the store/website you buy it from, although that is quite limited. When I got a defective 7970 from Newegg, they paid for the shipping label to send it back and I got a full refund.

As far as making it easier to fit in cases, well that's what the H80 is for. You just don't buy a 240mm radiator if you don't have 240mm in your case, either by design or with modification.

I did not have to pay for the RMA that I have being sent out. I got an advanced RMA, to avoid downtime and so far Corsair has been great with the process. Their customer service has been great, it just an issue with the unit (some of them).

On the case fit...what Scorpion said.

There is a problem with some of the coolers but not all. They need to figure out the problem.Also they shouldn't have to redo the design because your case doesn't have provisions. Buy a case that has room and is made for radiators. It fits easily then.

I had the same hard drive noise and tried the voltage drop moles connector. It made the pump silent but I must of done something wrong because it damaged the fan control module. Fans were going at max now. Resetting firmware did nothing. Was I supposed to unplug the fans from the pump/Module using this method? I really hope I didn't damage the main board frown.gif either way I was able to get a replacement and Im going to try the fan controller fix if this new one rattles ( and I expect it to).

Can anyone link to me exactly what type of controller /connectors I need to try this method? I was thinking Zalman fan mate 2. What else will I need to connect it to the molex?

A fan controller will work just like the diode mod.

Also, the fan controller in the unit isn't particularly well though-out and they do tend to die, it is however in no way related to the voltage dropper. In fact I'd go ahead and say that the diode mod lowers the probability of the unit's fan controller fault, because it lowers the stress on it's voltage regulator, which is the weak link and most likely the reason why yours died.
