Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 49

post #481 of 1734
Just got my adapter in the mail. I'm now running at 1898-1959 rpm. Before I was at 2170 rpm and the pump was very loud. Thank you wlw wl.

Mine seems to be stable at 1959 rpm but then it occasionally goes up to 2023 and still no noise! This is what I wanted and expected it as I do not have fans hooked up to the pump so it will keep rpm up as close as the stock speed with no noise, plus I get to use my cougar vortex fans thumb.gif

Good to know it's working for you guys, it makes for a much nicer cooler when it's not grinding, doesn't it? smile.gif

Hey everyone,

Success! The adapter got my pump down to 1950-2000 RPM and there is no noise. The temps are just a few degrees warmer at idle.

Thanks wlw_wl!

Mr-Mechraven - connect it directly to the PSU and see what RPM you get then. You might be looking at an RMA.

As i expected, it'll be a while before the perfect batch hits the shops.
my room temp is around 20c give or take 2-3c
This is also on the lowest fan speed setting.

I leave the Pc on overnight streaming to my ipad/phone, so once I'm asleep it does nothing, it then hits around 8-10c.
I have 1x 12cm intake fan that came with the case, 2x 12cm exhaust fans - 1x top 1x side, and the 2x H80 stock fans. It's also a nice big (one up from midi) case.
Aside from the impeller noise it's almost silent.

I don't overclock, is there a real need on a Bulldozer 8120? Just because you can doesn't mean you have too, right?
I was put off overclocking many years ago by disastrous results, so I tend to buy ahead of the game (or the best I can afford) and settle with that.

moonglade - you're welcome smile.gif

dazbobaby - if your ambient is 20 degrees, the coolant temp will be no less than 20 degrees. So either that 10 degrees you talk about is the delta from ambient, or you have a serious misreading. Or your slowdozer actually sucks in the energy instead of dissipating it biggrin.gif

Car radiators work the same way, once the engine gets got, air is pushed passed the fins and cools the radiator/engine.

Same for a PC. Dont forget that when you blow air it get's compressed slightly, and that compression cools the liquid down. Liquid is still the best way of cooling a pc.

dazbobaby, i dont think that you can cool liquid any lower that room temperature using just air at room temperature, no matter how big is your radiator, or how many or how fats is your radiators fan. it will just cool the liquid in the radiator up to the room temperature. ( please ANYONE correct me if I am wrong)

Where are you getting your readings? link software? if so try different software like hwmonitor.

Oh yerah and post pics please.

I'm using coretemp for my reading.
Previously on a Cooler Master HS/fan I got around 20c idle, and up to 60c on full load.

Dont forget blowing air is compressed air, and compressed air get colder.

Dwm 2012-06-24 19-00-51-67.jpg 223k .jpg file

running at 12c, the day is getting slightly warmer and I've just installed 2x HDD's that were running via USB.
I will take a pic from bios and upload that too.

I am also having a problem with rattling from the CPU header.
Is this the new batch? I doubt it. It'd take weeks to manufacture, test, and ship. So if I'd known I'd have waited a few weeks.
Damn shame too, idle temps are around 10c, load around 40c on a bulldozer 8 core.

Yeah the temperature sensors in bulldozer are not accurate at idle. Search for reviews of bulldozer cpus and go to the power usage/temperature section. Everyone has this problem with them. It is not possible to use a radiator to cool to less than ambient temp.
