oh i see, sorry then I was misunderstanding....
Anyway, all I can tell ya is that I have an H70 that should've arrived at Corsair's RMA dept today for that exact same thing pretty much...Used the unit for a good 3 months with no problems then one day I switched it from mobo header to Molex and BAM buzzing sound noisy as all hell started emanating from the pump.
Corsair advised me to send the unit in for RMA so I would advise you to do the same. Maybe it will work fine for 3 years...maybe it won't. I like to err on the side of caution when it comes to water inside my case and devices cooling my processor, hehe.
If you have some money you can get an 'advanced RMA'(i think it's called) and they will send you a new one before they receive your faulty one so you're never without cooling....

Do you think that would have a negative effect at all or maybe some positive? I could also just put an empty fan case on the outside to hold up the interior fans/rad...
I don't like to see fans run in series if they are different RPM/Make/Blade count etc.....it's one thing to run a couple of the same kind in series as this is an effective method of adding static pressure but even that has it's limits unless you get counter-sunk fans etc....I've never taken engineering classes on the subject but it seems like the stock fan would be wreaking havoc on the airflow your yates are trying produce. Could shorten the life of your fans by a great deal for little to no real gain in cooling. Better off gutting that stock fan and making it into a shroud. That's what I would do anyway, but of course do what you wanna do xDDDDEdited by slimbrady - 12/17/10 at 9:33pm
