Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 88

Waperboy - as long as it doesn't fall apart or short-circuit to anything, you should be fine.

OG1990sBKrandy - is RMA a risk? If you get the advance RMA, you don't have to pay for it, so I'd give it a shot probably.

salle - there have been 1 or 2 cases where it took longer than expected but I don't recall any of them not reaching the destination eventually.

Just thought I'd update with my RMA results. So far, so good! The new pump is virtually silent - the original one was NEVER this quiet. This is definitely how the pump was meant to operate, no doubt. It's only been in for an hour so no long term results yet, but it's looking promising.

I just did a even exchange with Amazon on my H80. Their customer service was great as they let me return the unit that I bought on Nov 30, 2011. Even 3 months after the return date, they even sent me the shipping label.

Now, i just received the new unit, and guess what... grinding right out of the box!.

Should I send it back to Amazon and try again? or RMA it?

I was watching the step-by-step guide on building the adapter @ http://www.overclock.net/gallery/album/view/id/679930. What happened between picture 5 and 6? Is someone selling these adapters, and for how much?

I could PayPal someone $10 to send me 2 of these adapters (just in case I need 2 in series) since I do not have the parts to make one. Does that sounds reasonable?

Hi all,
Just received my replacement H100. The noise is definitely not bad as my previous unit but unfortunately it still seems to be there frown.gif! One thing I've noticed (and remember reading somewhere) is that when I lay the computer flat, the noise disappears. As soon as I put it upright. it returns. Any ideas of why this is happening? I'm not sure if I should contact Corsair about this again or what...

EDIT: The model no. starts with 1227

I'm not sure if my H60 pump constitutes as being loud. I've attached a video. Its the best I could record.
The pump starts off at full speed before I turn it down and it buzzes. Could anyone tell me if the noise levels are acceptable? All fans are off in the vid.

jscheema - nothing happened between them. Photo #5 is a diode crimped in the Molex pins, photo 6 is a piece of wire. In photo #8 you have that diode on the bottom, sleeved, and that wire on the top, sleeved as well. Each adapter has a diode on pins #1 (+12V) and a wire on the GND, pin #2. The album shows making of both the diodes and the wires. You should replace the unit directly with Corsair because I doubt that the resellers already have access to the "revised" units.

BigDirtyNoob - it means that you got a faulty replacement, changing the orientation of the puter resolves the rattling by taking the lateral stress off the shaft, so it means this unit has a bearing problem as well.

NFSxperts - this isn't the kind of noise that the major issue is about, I do not know if that qualifies for a replacement, and frankly it doesn't sound so bad to make it worth the hassle of RMA, at least for me.
