Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 51

Nope, the other way around, the stripe has to be facing away from the PSU, that is if you're putting it on the +12V line. If you're putting it on the GND line, then it has to be facing towards the PSU, but I suggest the first solution.

Still here, have a conference call tomorrow with what should be the final details on how it all should work. I'll post more at the end of the week. Thanks for being so patient, I've had some rough personal issues to deal with otherwise this would be handled by now. Sorry guys.

Good Luck with the personal issues. Hope everything works out for you.

Bought a H100 yesterday. Pump was the loudest thing in my case. Applied the diode fix using a 1N4004 and I now have a silent H100. Pump hovers between 1890 and 1950rpm. Thank you so much for the help wlw wl.

Thanks George, and hope you get those issues worked out, you have been most informative on updates. Let us know when the new H100 units come so I can RMA my unit, I will wait until then.

One remark I must give on Corsair's forum. I noticed that just about any other brand is censored on that site, why is that? I understand it may be part of the TOU, but why is it part of the TOU? It seems to be very silly to me, and way too restrictive. It's not like anyone is swaying others from using Corsair's products. I know this is a little off topic, but a complaint of many.

Wired (or RamGuy?) said that there have been "overzealous" users in the past and they decided to introduce the filter because of that.

Ever wondered how your H60/80/100 looks like inside? Hint: exactly like Alphacool DC-LT Ceramic.
Wonder if these have the bearing problem too tongue.gif

A while back some people joined up and started spamming the name of one of our competitors in every thread. Even if it wasn't related. It was a bunch of random accounts, and as soon as we'd ban one, two more would show up. It was immature and stupid, and it made it hard to help people.

Ram Guy (our Tech Support Manager for the past like 10 years) decided to put the filter into place. I'm not sure why it's still there, probably for the same reason. He'd be the best guy to ask about that.

Good news - we have known good units. We've isolated the problem, fixed it, and have put a very aggressive screen in place to catch any "bad" units.

I will have some instructions on who to contact for your RMA later this week - we're just awaiting the arrival of the units and setting it all up from customer service so that people who contact us using this method will get their replacements promptly.
