What worked for me, was hooking my fan onto the Motherboard Fan Chasis slot, which automatically lowered RPM fan speed to 2700rpm, which sounds great now.

Turn off CPU Fan Monitor, or you will get errors.

Temps idle around 36-38C and full burn test around 55-57C.

Just when i started to get fustrated with my h60 i found this thread. Good news from Corsair, i knew you guys won't let me down. thumb.gif

I tried the diode but did not have any success mad.gif It actually made it noticeably louder. Took it from 2238rpm to about 2000 though. Thinking about running the whole h100 from a fan header. Has anyone said how many amps to run this thing, pump and 2 fans? I seen one mention of the pump only like 0.14 amps. The fans can't be over 0.20 amps. I think the headers on the Sabertooth provide 1 amp each. Not sure about that though. If I can find out and it will work, i'll just run it like that till I hear something about Corsair having new units. Then I'll have to RMA, I guess. Who knows how long it will take for my local store to run out of stock and reorder some new units. We could be months out. So there goes most local stores return period.

Someone asked earler if they could confirm from Corsair if the diode "fix" is a good solution for those who dont want to bother with an RMA. Well, if this is a part causing the problem, being out of spec or something, then the diode is most likely only postponing the inevitable. I don't plan on settling for just "tolerable" for a unit I paid over a hundred bucks for, and I wouldn't advise anyone else to either.

Volcomjd - CorsairGeorge is currently on holidays I believe, so you won't get any answers from him until second half of June.
What I can tell you is that if the pump isn't rattling - the operation is smooth - it should be fine for years. On the other hand, running the unit while it's rattling might very well result in premature wear off and damage of the bearing.

bboydp - it's actually half of that so 1350RPM, which is rather low.

bandook - I measured around 140 - 150mA on the H100 without the fans, the pump draws around 100mA, the rest is the fan controller. Even with two fans you're well within the 1A limit.

Thanks wlw wl. I tried today to hook everything right to the fan header, but it's not working like i thought. Typically, the h100+fans will go 100% then idle down, and it's doing that, but as soon as windows loads the pump and fans run at 100% and won't throttle back. I can turn them down with the Asus AI suite, but it's only allowing manual adjustments and for some reason the fan controller on the h100 is being over ridden. Strange. I should be able to just leave them at 100% and the corsair controller take over. Oh well, i can say that at 890 rpm, there is no noise tongue.gif

Edit: ok, I got it working right. Just had to restart a couple times for settings to stick. As I reduce power, the pump gets progressively louder. Then when I hit 72% on the motherboard controller, all noise suddenly stops and the pump spins at 1375 rpm. I honestly forgot how quiet my system is until now. Nothing like paying good money for a high quality cooler and being forced to run it at 3/4 performance! I got an idea now.... maybe i'll downclock my 3570k to 900mhz and install an old ide hard drive! Woohoo! This is extreme computing folks!

Just sent you a pm wlw wl re: the adapter.

I have been going crazy w/this noise for past 2-3 weeks. I have been running H100 w/4 Cougar Vortex fans in a HAF X case since 11/1/2011 with no problems, great temps. Fans are plugged right into H100, I actually don't have a fan controller, so will using this adapter trick work? When I dropped the speed setting on the H100 controller to medium the noise stopped, it's up to full now and the noise is back again.

This noise just started about 2-3 weeks ago. Thought it was my top 200mm fan, but nope. Then thought maybe one of my Cougar fans, didn't hear it from the bottom 2, but didn't want to pull the H100 off to inspect the top 2. Then, I came across this thread this morning and it's the H100 afterall (ARGH!!!!). I'd be willing to try the adapter fix since looks like Corsair is likely to not have a fix.

Hey wlw wl,

Just sent you another pm - didn't realize OC limits us (or me?) to 2 pm's a day???

anyhoo, the specs on the cougar fans I have are shown at about 1:55 in this youtube video from dmc gaming:

just for giggles I laid pc on its side for an hour; noise went away while on its side. but once tower was vertical the noise resumed before I even took my hands off the case.

Well...looks like I will have to RMA again. The 2nd H100 doesn't have the noise, but all four fans won't stay on consistently. I have been checking the molex connector, and what not, to no avail.

The first week to 10 days, all four worked but after a reboot, only 3 spin up. I updated the BIOS to current level Saturday, rebooted, only 3 fans. This is rather upsetting, as the 2nd H100 did not have the noise.

SoterioN - 2PM limit is for user with less than 10 posts. There's still no current rating for those fans even on the package... As for tilting the PC, the problem is the bearing so tilting or putting it on its side takes the lateral stress off the shaft and the bearing, so the problem temporarily disappears.

bwebmasta - does the fan controller change profiles when you press the button? Have you tried the f/w reset procedure?
