Voltage dropper for the Corsair H100 needed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I think my question is simple smile.gif

My Corsair H100 makes the well known grinding sound, second one I received from RMA, and I don't want to do an RMA again.

Now I want to try the voltage dropper which is mentioned in this topic:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1236923/corsair-h100-h80-h60-noise-grinding-pump-fix-official-corsair-response

I've send 'wlw wl' an PM but he doesn't reply frown.gif

Does somebody know where I can get this voltage dropper elsewhere?

Regards,
Johan

wlw wl did have a guide in that thread IIRC so that you could make your own if you wanted.
Other than that if you really wanted one, I might try posting in that thread / the hydro series club to see if anyone has one they don't need anymore.

If you RMA again though, you should just ask for a H100i the pump issue is fixed on those, and they perform a little better too.

Best of luck!

You need to build your own.. using a Diode as mentioned and putting it inline on the +12v of a Molex plug..

 

 

 

 

 

Quote: From the thread you linked above
The only question left is - what diode one should use?
The simple answer is: any one from the 1N4001 to 1N4007 range. I'm using 1N4001 and it's working in about 90% of the cases or more, hard to keep track of all the droppers I've already sent and those that people made themselves to my guidance.
I also tried Schottky diodes, 1N5817 and 1N5819, but they didn't work with the H100 I had. Fine without fans, still grinding when 2 fans were attached. That's because the forward voltage of those diodes is lower.

 

 Look around at an electronics supplier or online for some of the above part #'s to reference the Diode size needed.

Thanks for the reply guys.

I'll try to make it myself ((hope it works) and post in the thread.
You could be right, maybe somebody doesn't need iy anymore thumb.gif

Okay, I've finally had time to make a voltage dropper.

The strange thing is, that I can still hear the pump noise...
Now I've read that you could make two voltage droppers and put them in series, or something.
Should I try that or just put the pump on my fancontroller?

Second question; If I have to put the pump on my fancontroller, should I use a 'Molex to 3-pin' adapter or something like that.
My fancontroller (Scythe Kaze Server Fan Controller) has only 3-pin connections.
