I'm dreading having to remove the mobo to replace this - I know many have done so, but I've seen how annoying it can be. Maybe I'm just being demanding at this point biggrin.gif

Yeah im hoping that also. Since my motherboard doesnt align with my mobo case tray correctly, id have to take apart my whole rig just to get that backplate out aswell.

New user here. I started searching about H100 pump noise issues tonight because I couldn't take the grinding coming from my pump anymore! My system would be virtually silent if it wasn't for the grinding sound (reminds me of an old and noisy hard drive being accessed constantly)

I will definitely be requesting an RMA the moment they are available!

I have been following this thread for the last week or so after my brother and I both purchased H100's to use in our new builds, but were dismayed to find that both our units suffer from the dreaded grind noise. We were somewhat deflated as we both have used Corsair parts in our machines for years, and have spent a sizable sum on corsair components for this current build (H100, AX1200 gold, 16gb vengeance@1866mhz) so we are very much hoping that Corsair will do right by us.
Cheers

Bump for an answer.

I got my voltage dropper from wlw_wl a few days ago, but unfortunately I'm one of the unlucky few that it doesn't help (if anything, my H100 sounds a little rougher with the dropper installed. It was certainly worth a try for the price, but I'll have to wait to hear about the RMA process for somebody in the UK.

Thanks for keeping us posted, CorsairGeorge.

Hey George, I have been having this sound on and off since I got it. Every time it would happen I could fix it by flicking the tubes. Ever since I moved the tube in a certain way at the connection to the pump it seems to have stopped.

I'm confused because it seems like it likely was caused by an air bubble getting caught in the pump. It seems odd that it would happen only some of the time and stop simply by flicking the tubes. So I don't know if it's a combination of what you guys have came up with or a air bubble in the pump.

In any case it seems to be working noise free now. But if the problem was caused by a faulty part would this reduce the lifespan of the H80?

Hi guys. I haven't read through the whole thread, due to it's size. However, I build my new PC today and ended up here after concerns with my H80.

Before I installed it, I connected it to my old PC to make sure it wasn't leaking. During this time it made a rattling sort of noise, but I'd read they do this when they're first turned on while the air bubbles are smoothed out and after about 10 minutes, it went silent.

So this morning when I installed it into my new PC, I rotated it 90 degrees so the hoses are now at the top of the block. I did this because with the very stiff hoses, there was a a bit of pressure on the hose connections to the pump when mounted the conventional way (hoses on the right of pump).

However, now I'm getting a periodic rattle. The time between rattles and duration of the rattle seems to vary but it usually rattles for 1-10 seconds every 1-5 minutes.
I thought this may have just been more air bubbles introduced by the rotation of the pump which would sort themselves out. However I've had the thing running for over 5 hours and it doesn't seem to have improved, whereas when I ran the pump for the first time, the rattle lasted for less than 15 minutes.

Is the similar to the issue being discussed here, or is the discussion here more about a constant rattle that never stops?

Thanks.

Strange, I just figured out when I run the H80 on my new Corsair AX750, it makes the rattling noise. However when I run the cooler of my old Antec True Power 650, it doesn't rattle at all.

Could this mean there's something wrong with my AX750?

I have the same thing, on my old power supply it doesn't make the rattling noise but on my new power supply (dark power pro 10) it does make the noise, maybe because both our power supplies are 80+ (gold) certified the pump is getting exactly 12v or a little bit over that while the old supplies can't deliver enough volts. I don't know honesty, it's just a speculation.

That's a decent theory, you may be right.

I tested both the AX750 and TP650 with my multimeter. TP650 was a solid 12v while the AX750 was a steady 12.1v.
