Kaytfoh - that means your unit is almost stable, just a little slower and it should be completely silent. YHPM.


Please direct all adapter requests to PM.

Just wanted to comment on how I solved my H100 Rattling noise and it didn't require any exotic tinkering

In my bios I noted that my 12V rail was 12.1 Volt output and pump rpm about 2150

I bought the following items:

4-Pin Molex naar 3-Pin Fan Adapter (http://www.highflow.nl/aansluitingen/stroomkabels/4-pin-molex-naar-3-pin-fan-adapter.html?sl=NL)
3-Pin Splitter (http://www.highflow.nl/aansluitingen/stroomkabels/3-pin-splitter-y-kabel.html)

I connected them all together with my Scycle fancontroller and its works flawlesly while showing me the rpm (around 2020)

So I solved my H100 noice problem for less them 5 euro (exluding send cost and research cost)

No, first off you'd need a cable with a female Molex connector, this one has male. Second off, aren't the 500R fan controller connectors proprietary?

Yes they're proprietary (which is frustrating). Also, the 500R only has a 3 switch setting, with low-medium-high. Not ideal for controlling the pump speed.

JayWill411 - I always say "worry about the temperatures first, then about the RPMs". Good to know you worked it out smile.gif
bwebmasta - I swapped the stock fans with Gentle Typhoons AP-15 (1850 RPM) and it worked beautifully - silent and very powerful fans. As for the TIMs, it would make sense if you lapped the H100 and especially the CPU, as the IHS's tend to be concave, or otherwise warped, and that will introduce a hard to eliminate variable into your tests, because you might get 4 different results with the same TIM but different order of tightening the screws (it affects how the TIM spreads).

Whoa...lapping it huh? I have some 2000 grit sandpaper, will that do the trick? I read somewhere on another post about lapping the HS on the H100 got the guy about 5-7C lower temps.

After that, I can try the IC7 and AS5 to see which yields the best results. Right now, I am using all 4 NF-F12's in a push pull config with IC7 as the TIM.

2000 would be one of the last steps, if not the very last one. You would want to start with 400 or something similar because you have to make it planar first, then worry about smoothness and polish. You'll find a good step-by-step here:

Hey WLW_WL I received your voltage dropper and my H100 is no longer making a grinding noise... So THANK YOU!!! Dziękuję!!!!

My FanXpert is now telling me that my CPU Fan (wich is actually the pump speed of the H100 pump and not the H100 Stock Fans) is between 1889-1950 rpm instead of 2100-2200 rpm. Which I think is still considered safe? I haven't notice any temperature differences for my CPU in FanXpert as well.

Now my question is directed to CorsairGeorge (maybe you could also answer this question wlw_wl): since my noise issue has been resolved by the voltage dropper/molex adapter, do you think it is still necessary for me to RMA my H100? In other words, should I continue using the diode adapter? I really don't feel like uninstalling my H100 and having to wait for another unit. If it works with the adapter, why should I replace it? So I guess it all comes down to: is wlw_wl's voltage solution safe to use and do you consider it a long term "non-official Corsair" solution? I know if you represent Corsair, you can't really recommend something that isn't made or assembled by your corporation, but speaking for all of us that are using the adpater and willing to continue using it, is it safe to continue using the adapter?
