Corsair H100 / H80 / H60 noise, grinding pump - *fix* + official Corsair response - Page 91

post #901 of 1734
RMA UPDATE: (7/16/2012)

2 boxes arrived from UPS!

Received today the 2nd h100 (Lot #12279403) and this one is totally silent!! thumb.gifbiggrin.gif

Also recevied a new corsair vengeance 1100 gaming headset as a gift!! applaud.gif

I was really pleased and surprised... thank you corsair!! specool.gif

I noticed 2 things when i unboxed the h100...

The Lot # sticker changed abit and there was more TIM applied (larger grey square) to the cpu/pump block.

New sticker... good silent h100

Old sticker... bad noisy pump

what do you think on my findings? do you agree? only the label changed same box. users can look at the label to see if they have a good/bad unit.

I had to replace 6 h100`s with my local store and 2 rma`s with corsair but now the nightmare is over and i am enjoying my new silent h100....ahhh silence is golden!

thank you corsair for your amazing RMA service and super fast shipping with UPS! it was a nice experience and also wish to thank Joann for taking care of my RMA. I am still loyal to corsair and will never stop buying your products!

Corsair = FTW!!! biggrin.gifthumbsupsmiley.pngcheers.gif

What your labels show is the bad unit was manufactured in the 13th week of 2012, and the good unit in the 27th week. My working replacement was also made in the 27th week, so while we can't be 100% assured of anything, it's safe to say that units with lot numbers that start with 1227 or higher should be manufactured using the improved process and should be pump noise free.

No surprise- still no return email with the tracking information for my replacement unit. Way to go Corsair- at least you guys are working on being consistently awful.

Whats the over under on my replacement being just as big a piece of garbage as the unit Corsair originally made?

In other news, my GSkill RMA (which had to travel 2x the distance) arrived on Friday. That's under a week from start to finish with no need to send multiple emails, fill out forms repeatedly, or even include my purchase invoice. I believe I have found my new go to RAM manufacturer.

Yep same here, no email back from them. And their HQ is a couple minutes from my house, I should march in there and demand a replacement.

Received my new replacement unit, to find out that it is louder than my defective unit, and this is also from the new lot '12279403'.

Sounds like I have a mini vacuum cleaner in my computer..

WLW WL

Just wanted to add that it wasn`t the pump that had a little noise left but one of the fans in the case. smile.gif
post #908 of 1734
Arrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhhhh : just put my original intel CPU cooler instead of the H100 :-(
The H100 was noisy, but the intel's fan is just horrible...
I should definitely have bought one Nofan CR-95C IcePipe Coolers :-) (well not sure if my G.SKILL RipjawsX F3-1600C9Q-32GXM (8Gx4) could have fit or not...

Thanks wlw wl.

Received the voltage dropper today and it works perfectly, the "#¤#""#¤%/&%¤mad.gif noise/rattling/grinding is gone.

Also no drop in cooling performance.

All i had to do is open the package, remove the side cover and connect it, hassle free.

You rock man, thanks again. thumb.gif

I still need one of the voltage droppers wlw, when you have them ready to go.
