Well you said I have to use another dioed and I dont know which diode should I choose. Already use 1N4001 and the sound still go on and off

It doesn't make a difference whether you choose 1N4001 or any other 1N400x, because they are all the same, as far as you're concerned. Two diodes in series will double the voltage drop and will reduce the pump's speed by about 400RPM so it should be at 1700 - 1800 RPM mark. I suggested that you use a 1N4001 + 1N5819 for example, as that will result in a smaller drop and a bit higher speed, but you don't have to do that if it confuses you.

Well how about other people? Is it only me having this problem? Is it because my soldering?

No, it happens sometimes that one diode isn't enough, because some units will stop rattling at 1900 while others will do it at 1700 etc.

Im thinking its pointless to RMA this since knowing my luck it will come back worser.... may try that molex mod and see if it works.

Perhaps its best to give Corsair time only issue is they warranty these items for 12 months so perhaps its best to RMA it !?

If you follow George's instructions, you will get the "new" unit which should not have the issue. And last time I checked the warranty on H100 was 5 years.

Still no UPS return label and absolutely no reply to my request for an advanced RMA. This has pretty much been the response to any of my requests from Corsair's Customer Service Department.

Its really pathetic and is hands down the absolute worst customer service I have dealt with anywhere.


Someone has to let me in on how to get this 'grand' customer service I always hear so much about. I've consistently purchased Corsair products, but that looks to come to an end here. I surely won't be recommending them to my friends and coworkers anymore either.

Is it also possible to call the customer service and request an advance rma from there, since I do appreciate Corsair helps us, but whenver I respond to the mail, it takes them 2-3 days to respond back. I can imagine they must be busy, but is there a way to make this RMA go quick and clean.

I figured they would be busy and even suggested that was a reason for the delay, but then CorsairGeorge comes back with this reply

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.

I don't even understand what he is trying to say? The number is low, so they aren't 'swamped' like I had suggested, but even with this small number of affected people I should expect to wait 'a while' for a standard RMA? Then when I try for an advanced RMA they act as if I never sent a request. I'm willing to bet I get a reply that in some way, shape, or form tries to deny 'accommodating' my advanced RMA.

Does this mean that I have to put ADVANCE RMA instead of (normal) RMA as a sidenote in my mail (subject: Hydro Buzz Noise), am I missing something or did I just understand it wrong. If so, then that would be really weird.
