Do you think this is the problem? Am not sure if I should send this one back and get a Noctua air cooler and be doenw ith all this carry on.
I've read that some have been able to fix the noise with some of cable? Are Corsair going to be sending those out to all who bought the H100?
At any rate I am putting the H100 down in the "do not recommend" list as it seems to be problematic for most of us who have purchased it. Just for me alone, I have now had two brand new sealed H100's and both of them make the noise as soon as you switch them on. Not the sign of a good product at all in my book.

Try position the radiator so that the tubes at the bottom. I just want to see whether this make is less audible or silent or still noisy. Mine work silently, no grinding at all (lot code: 1215
9403, production date: 2012 week 15). Even though mine works ok & I can't find anyone at local forum here that have problem with H100, I don't recommend H100 to any of my friends. If you can RMA the units without extra/expensive cost, I suggest better RMA them. I read Corsair only will replaced the problematic H100, not all H100. If you don't want to use H100 anymore, may I suggest XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 watercooling kit. It cost the same like H100, at least in my country.
