Plugging the fans directly into the motherboard CH_FAN header gives the pump its 2000-2200 rpm again, but the fans are out of control @ 100%
Been doing some reading up and next thing to try which apparently worked for someone else, is to remove the USB > Board cable, and use a MiniUSB > USB cable to a USB2.0 port on the back of the board in its place
Looks like there are a load of these H100i's with pump / fan problems
Yep there certainly are,
updating firmware is useless and i contacted corsair of this problem and all they said was, we are working on a firmware update and it will not take long, well i am waiting for 3 months now and still no solution.
I had the same with the fans, no matter how i mount or connected the fans they made a terrible grinding noise even at low speed.
So i contacted Corsair and they said i need to give my adress and phone number etc. and i will get new fans and indeed within 1 week i had 2 new fans that worked properly.
But the problem is still there that you can't mount fans on the pump itself due to its lack of power draw, and to be honest the pump isn't that great eighter because on here i saw a video of some one who took apart the cooler and showed us how the pump performance was, well i can only say that i can pee harder than that pump does LOL
Okay enough of bashing of on corsair products but you get my point
the service is outstanding tho and within 1 week you will get replacement fans or what ever you have problems with, so for that i would give them a 8 out of 10.
And if you do have Fan problems they have special RMA for that so the only thing you need to do is give them a call and explain and they will send you replacement Fans immediately
