Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 46

gregkwaste - if your H80 was rattling in the upwards position and stopped when tilting the case, that's the bearing issue. Now if you move the radiator below the pump, the air will go to the pump, which might stop the rattling, but in turn you will have worse cooling efficiency.
If you want to experiment, you can get a 3-pin to 4-pin adapter and use a motherboard fan header instead of a fan controller. However if you get a fan controller, make sure it's not a PWM controller (like the one the H80 uses for its fans) but a normal voltage controller. Zalman FanMate might work, it's a simple as it gets. Sunbeam Rheostat would be a next step up, but it uses the same basic functionality, a potentiometer on a base of a power transistor. The downside of those controllers is that they have a scale of 0V to (about) 12V, so the range of your interest, 10V to 12V, will be just a little turn of the knob, so not much precision there: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article84-page3.html

ChronosZ - it appears that the official fix will be in place soon, as Ram Guy said on the official forum. The noise is indeed annoying, but the H50 I have is making the same noise and buzzing like an old transformer on top of that, at least the H60/80/100 problem can be addressed but not this tongue.gif

To be honest, the first power on of the h80 was on the side position, after i was sure that everything was ok, i closed the system, and reverted back to the upwards position. Not a single rattle.
I then experienced some temp issues and i was told to turn the cpu block 90 degrees CW or CCW in order to get better cooling. That change happened in side position, still no rattle. The problem started after tilting while the system was on as i described before...


Yes indeed i tried that with the radiator position and the rattling went away, i didn't notice that this was air though tongue.gif, but again the rattling stopped for a short period of time...

I didn't manage to test it with the cpu fan controller, i had no time actually, guess i'll try this as soon as the faulty replacement comes back tongue.gif

I didn't also think of that scale "problem". I see now why the dropper is the best choice so the rest of the conversation will be on pm's ^^

Thanks smile.gif

Wait for official info on the procedure, if it will be just a normal RMA or maybe something different.

My house's H50 is getting delivered back to Corsair as I write. Hopefully something will be done. I came home from college to hear the HTPC sounding like the suction tube my dentist uses.

H50 is a totally different design, while H60/80/100 pump is basically a PC fan, the H50 is a pump you'd find a dishwasher or washing machine. And it has less customizable AC motor driver. Sounds like yours lost some water? Was it still under warranty?

Just tried to RMA my H60, they said that they would not RMA it at the moment and a fix would be available in the not too near future, and that I would be informed when it was available.

Edit: after closer reading their exact words were "It will be announced on the forums. in a week or two. we are working to get units ready for shipment." Hopefully that means they already have a fix.
