Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 70

post #691 of 1734
thx does anyone know what page the video links are on ?

ive listened to it again and yeah turning the pump on its side sometimes can make it silent and less churning and grinding noise...
but since I have not heard another working unit hard to say...

If it's rattling, it's rattling. The noise level might differ but IMO it's that simple - it's either defective or it's not.

i agree with wlw wl. i just installed an h100 in my new system and i cant hear the pump at all. the two 120s (stock, set to max) on the rad are the only source of audible sound coming from my pc.

Search "corsair H100 punp noise fix" on Youtube, the clip that is 1min 19 sec and listen, that´s how mine sounds.
Got a new one last week, same noise, but even a little bit louder than the one I got first, If there really is a low % of units that are defect I really must have some bad luck.

Can`t wait till I get it Quiet!

wlw wl//

Is there only one way to attach the dropper or is there something extra I should think about when I attach it, I mean what side the diod should point at, changing some settings in bios or anything else, or is just the attachment itself enough?

wlw wl,

I tried your method and made the dropper myself, put it and boom!! The sounds gone :DD I was very happy!!

BUTTT, after a few minutes, the sounds come back.. Any explanation for that? Are there any other problems?

thx salle

yes I listened to this video here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJjhDgKZHdU

And yeah before he used that molex dropper fix that is the same 100% noise I get it is a grindling/rattling and chirping noise.

I think I will try that adaptor/molex fix, I think one could use a fan controller/reducer to use the same effect though.... its just putting less electricity into it and one could I believe run the fans to separate mobo headers....

Or do people think I should attempt to RMA my rattling H100 ? Seems if people are still getting noisy parts its clear Corsair aint fixed the issue 100% ?

salle - you just plug it in between the cooler and the PSU and that's all. There's only one way you can connect it so you can't do it wrong. Well I shouldn't say that you can't, because someone will try to prove that he can, but it only fits in one way.

WivZ - does tapping the unit while it's running with an adapter changes the noise or makes it go on and off? Does unplugging or plugging in the fans from/into the cooler change that? Seems like it needs just a tad less volts.

RP3X - yes, you can use a fan controller instead, but it's more clumsy and potentially more risky.

As for being "swamped", there's a fair number but it's still very low. If you read these forums you'd think thousands of people would be having this issue, and that's just not the case. Still important to fix, of course.

Cosair George, a few questions and observations:

From my experience with advanced RMA, I was shipped a new unit but had to pay to ship the return back. Is that the normal procedure?
My replacement that I was sent in May is making a noise, although much lower than the first. When should I RMA it?

In regards to the people that have issues with the H100, H80, and others, approximately how many are there? It would be rather hard to pinpoint due to so many that have tried RMA's 2, 3, and some over that amount prior to the fix. Due to I would be on my third unit, do I count as two problems, or what is the process Corsair is using to track the problem units? You have to take into account all of the people that are on other forums and sites such as Amazon, NewEgg, Micro-center, that have reviews with those complaints as well. No disrespect, but it just seems the issue is being downplayed or attempted to be.

Exactly when are the new units being released? Any hard dates?

what is the phone number for Corsair customer services, is it the same one as the HQ?
