I just bought a corsair h100i a few days ago and I noticed the pump making a faint grinding sound the sound is only noticeable if I have the radiator fans set to quiet , default and balanced if I have the fan speed higher it blanks out the sound should I be worried ? or do all corsair h100i's make this sound ? I bought my corsair h100i from my local tiger direct I still have the receipt should I return it for another one ?

I installed every think tight I even use the washes that come with it to mount the radiator . I am not worried about the noise any more it is only noticeable when I have the fans on quiet mode default and balanced mode . as long as it is not the pump making that noise I'm good
