how quiet can you get an H100i?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Rattling around with the idea of doing a build with the "NCase M1 " Mini ITX case. unfortunatly there simply isnt enough unicorn tears in the world to shove a custom waterloop in a case that size, so for the first time since the original Corsair H50, Ill be forced to go back to an AIO.

The MOST important thing to me when I build a computer is that its quiet, like inaudible. My 4770K SLI 980 sig rig is completely inaudible even at full load. I water cool to keep things quiet, not a single part of my rig is overclocked, tho its entirely watercooled.

So my question is, having not played with an AIO since the original H50, can you get the pump on the H100i ( not the H100i GTX ) to be completely silent? Id replace the corsair fans with noctua fans and bring them down 5v for around 400rpm. So my worry is that Ill hear a constant whine from the pump.


Thanks guys!
Super quiet

I can't hear the pump on my H100i at all TBH (It is significantly quieter than the H50, 60 and 80 that I've used in other builds / configs).
There were pump-noise issues in the past but I haven't seen a peep on that in a few years so looks like that's addressed by them with the OEMs.


On the rad I'm using 2x 1400rpm Noise Blocker Pros (very silent and good static pressure), and only 1100rpm case fans.
