Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 21

post #201 of 1734
Thread Starter 
12129043 is the 12th week of 2012, which is 12th to 16th March. So now we know that units with this # aren't fixed. Wonder if these "post-restock" units will in fact be fixed...



For those of you interested in how the adapters are made, take a look at this step-by-step album smile.gif

Does anyone know what the rpm of an H100 mean ?

I test it now with 1250 rpm and I don't see my CPU going higher to 45° (i3770k w/o OC and a room temp of 23°) with the two NF-F12 fans running at 360 rpm each.

And also, should one screw the pump with "force" on my motherboard or ???

Thank for all info smile.gif

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

So that's probably that, it's so weak that you can't make it any weaker tongue.gif

So i just got an H100 from amazon and lo and behold it has the HDD like griding noise loud too. So I'm going to try the fan controller trick but I am thinking about just returning it and waiting till Corsair comes out with a fixed/revised version does anyone know if they are working on one?

Supposedly yes, but someone here said they are out of stock now so either you'll get the "old" H100 or they will make you wait for the re-stock if that's true.

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.

depends on the case? it fit in my haf x perfectly without drilling. in fact, the holes were a perfect match.

I installed my replacement H100 and no noise on this one, running for about 2 days now. I changed the controller out as well on my 650D case, and the fans hooked up to it are fine...for now. The whole secrecy. denial, editing posts, and banning people on Corsair's site is sort of sickening. A lot of people have real issues with a product, and sure we understand with technical things problems occur. My problem is at least acknowledge it, and DO something to fix it.

Dell, Ford, HP, Chrysler, Crucial, and many other companies approached a remedy to fix problems and let people know about it. Some had to learn the hard way. Perhaps something is coming...

bwebmasta - would you share your lot #? Just curious if there will be any relation between when the units were made and the problems.

Also if you ever get to remove the lid from the unit, I'd very much like a photo of the fan controller board smile.gif

I have a question for you wlw. How should I go about connecting the H100 pump to a fan controller like in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WgV-a-6G_k&feature=related

I'm specifically linked this video because I have the same fan controller. However, with the way I connected mine, while I can control the voltage I cannot see the RPM on the readout. Does the molex plug have any kind of RPM info? I didn't think so, but how is his controller getting the RPM info?
post #210 of 1734
First off - this thread has been read. From page 1 to 21. I've read every post.

To be honest, I'm still fairly surprised. I don't monitor our forums too closely or work in our customer support, but I do see our RMA rates, and they aren't anything out of the usual. I'm working with our in-house engineers and with CoolIT in Calgary to come up with a fix for this one - we're pretty sure you guys have the cause nailed down, so we'll verify it and fix it.

For those of you who've had multiple bad units, all I can say is that we'll do you right. I'll work out something once we have a fix in place. It's absolutely unacceptable to have multiple failures back to back, and it seems there's some lot code differences, so once we nail down the root cause and have a fix, I'll be sure to get you guys the info.

In the meantime, I appreciate your patience. I appreciate your troubleshooting skills, and I apologize again for the stress.

I've been at Corsair for 8 years, ever cooler, power supply, fan, and case has my input and personal seal of approval and it pisses me off when something like this happens.

Email me if you have questions: redbeard@corsair.com

I'll post back here when I have a fix - which will be provided free of charge to those of you who want it. I can't provide more details until I know more, but I'll have more info as soon as I can.
