I have this issue with my H100, and I'm waiting to rma until they fix the problem. Apparently it's not that uncommon. I just hope they fix it soon cuz man is it annoying.

And I bet that all the new people are posting here because they google "h100 clicking noise" or something like that, find this thread, and then post so they can learn what they need to. Nobody is going to come to a thread about a certain issue just so they can post "oh hey guys, I don't have this issue."

I have the same issue with my H60, and strangely enough noise disappears when the case is turned on it's side.

Sad part is that shipping the unit back to corsair will cost me like half the price of the new one, so I don't even bother.

H70 on the other hand have been working great for year and a half.

I just installed an H80, and set it to "medium".

The fans are a bit louder than the combination of my old case fan and CPU fan, but I can't hear anything that might be called "pump noise".

It seems to be working fine. CPU temp is 30C with a mild overclock.

I bought this because, going into the summer, my computer was overheating and I didn't want to run the air conditioning on high for the whole house just to keep the computer from overheating. I'm not a gamer, I'm an engineer and I run programs that use all the cores in the CPU on maximum for hours at a time.

So, I have a question: I'm using the Corsair fans that came with the H80. They have three pins and I've plugged them into the pump unit.

Does anyone know what would happen if I bought higher-quality, perhaps four-pin fans, and plugged them into the pump unit? Would it be more quiet?

There are most definitely quieter fans that you could get.  Some are pricier than others like the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's.

The stock corsair fans have surprisingly good static pressure tho. Keep that in mind when looking for a replacement. There are definitely better fans out there, but they aren't going to be cheap fans.

Yes for sure. Scythe GT, Cougar Vortex and Noctua NF-P12 fans have been popular replacements for the stock fans. I personally use Cougar fans and have been very happy with their performance.

Which cougars do you use? I have been intrigued by these fans for my h100.

Links below. I use the non-PWM versions since PWM is irrelevant when connected to the pump or a fan controller which is my preferred connection for now. You may want to consider the PWM version though if you want your motherboard to control fan speed off a 4-pin CPU header. Also, the PWM version does have higher max RPM potential (1,500 vs 1,200).

Non-PWM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553005

PWM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553006

They sell them in their full orange color also, but I prefer the black.

How did I just stumble upon this thread? So glad it popped up on the "Latest Discussions" or I would have never looked for/found it.

I've had my H80 now for a couple months and it's been giving off the ol' "HDD" sound now for about a month. After days trying to figure out what was making the sound (checked all my fans/HDD's/GPU's) I naively overlooked the H80, until I stuck my head in the case (800D sooo roomy thumb.gif). As much as it annoyed me (it's the loudest noise from my case), I just assumed it was normal. I decided to go with the H80 because my previous H50 was like a powerhouse and quiet to boot, so i was a disappointed that it was this loud. Although, wish I went 100 as the 80 was originally intended to go with an 1155 build that ended up being a 2011 and it's a little close for comfort on my Dominator's.

So my question is this: at this point, should I RMA or wait for official word for possible fix? Just curious since I'm running a 2011 build and my H80 is the only cooler I have for it. So when/if I RMA it, I'll be without a computer for the duration. As much as I think the user "fix" is ingenious, I'd rather have an official fix (no offense.)

Also (for CorsairGeorge) If I do RMA it, is there any chance I could exchange it for an H100 for the MSRP difference? Sorry if that's a stupid question, but better to ask just in case and obviously alright if I can't.

Glad to see Corsair is on it and this doesn't effect my feelings towards their products as after all the stuff I've purchased and owned from them, this is the first issue. So looking forward to a resolution, hopefully sooner rather than later.
