After a RMA, my H100 is working great. I have a push/pull setup. Problem is my Corsair fans are running strong, where as my CoolerMasters Fans are problematic making a ball bearing style noise. Had to disconnect one completely because it was driving me nuts.

Not sure if I would upgrade to the H100i. I would have preferred better modifications from the original.

Side note why is it when you WC a GPU its usually cooler than a CPU even though a GPU uses more power?
I dont know but those cooler are noisy nothing over 1500rpm is recommended computers should be quiet as a dead metal if they're gonna start making noises is not even worth to use a computer beyond office work.

Now running my H80i on the 930 at 4.3gig 24/7 @ 1.38V, using "balanced" fan setting, pretty quiet, ran 30 minutes of Linepack, never moved out of the 60's, did some tinkering and booted to 4.5gig just for kicks, ran Linepack with fans set to performance (fairly noisy.....about the same as my old reference 6950 on auto fan setting), overclock crashed after 12 minutes but again temps did not hit 70C.... all in all pretty damn good. What i do like is you can just set a fixed RPM for each fan so you can be as precise as you like in the balance between performance and noise.

Most important thing really is that it is an improvement over previous design and does match the old H100 performance in a cheaper more compact package.

LOVING my H80I! Replaced an H80. Runs about 7-8C lower under load on my FX-8350 which is at 1.475V. The interface ROCKS! Cheesy but I love that the led can change color depending on temp. At idle it is white.. under load and about 35C it goes to a deep vivid red. Peak temp I am seeing right now with my setup is 50C. The firmware update was cake and the new firmware made the unit virtually silent at idle but under 100% it sounds like a hovercraft.

Cannot recommend this cooler enough! Was nice to see that the h80i and h100i under load on a review were virtually equal :nutkick:

I just hate the very short Hydro tubes. 22cm is so damn short that i'm forced to look into Antec solutions that have 33cm long tubes. Also all the pump grinding issues are really putting me off the Hydro purchase.

Pump grinding? You sure that's not before the firmware update? I have never had any pump grinding.

Visit their forums. Ever second comment is about grinding. Makes you wonder about the reliability of their products. Also, firmware on a water cooling loop? C'mon, whats next, upgradeable firmware on speakers and headphones? Seems like updateable firmware is now the ultimate answer for lack of any quality control prior to product release. Just wondering...

All water cooling "kits" as far as I am aware have firmware, the point of which is to improve the product, nothing different really to SSD firmware... or even graphics card drivers. I can only believe that the comments you refer to on "forums" are old pre firmware upgrade, I am not aware of any noise from anything certainly on mine, its damn near perfect to be honest, even to the point that in Corsair link all you need to do once you have downloaded the small firmware file is simply click "update firmware" and it's done in 5 seconds.

If that is fixed, then the tubes lenght is the only problem remaining. I was quite happy with the Corsair SSD, i still have the Corsair Dominator RAM so i was thinking Corsair Hydro as well. But it seems i'll have to go with Antec 920 instead. Dont like it that much since i never owned any product from them but they do have 33cm long tubes. I wish Corsair made them longer as well. Or at least editions of the coolers with longer tubes or something.

I see, it was the exact opposite for me, I wanted short tubing, my case is only midi and I did not want un-needed lengths of tubing cluttering up the internals, I can understand that if you want greater mounting flexibility you may want longer.

So, they've overcome massive heatpiped towers with these closed loops. Basically, they now have to figure out closed loop detachable tubes which could be purchased separately in various lengths.

I know coz i have a air conditioning device from Zibro that uses coolant gas closed loop with leak-free seal valves. You can detach and attach the outdoor unit with the indoor one without leaking any gas or requiring any special tools. So this idea doesn't seem so far fetched. Though these leak free detachable valves add up to the cost for sure and there is a matter of size issues as well i'm guessing...

If you want that sort of thing and do not care about warranty.. pretty simple to go DIY... Cut off the tubes so you can add your own in.. then just drill and add a port plug to the top of the rad. About an hours work. In my case on my H80i, the tubes are to long for my liking. I do wish they made a long and short tube version from the manufacturer. :toast:

Finally got my H100i up and running. 30min LinX burn shows around 5c drop from my custom wc-loop.

A firmware update fixed the fan rattling sound, but now they whine. Apparently there's a fw update coming soon.

Otherwise I quite like it. Installing was harder than I would've liked, but that has more to do with my case being a bit too small to fit the rad and fans inside. I had to install the fans on top and the rad inside.

A little update. I put in a ticket to Corsair about the annoying high pitch sound.

Reply:
There will be a new set of fans that we will be releasing in the following weeks that will fix the high pitch or buzzing noise caused by the stock fans. We will start sending these out to customer who are having similar issue like yours. We will keep you posted. Thanks
Good support it seems.

New fans now????

One would've thought they'd have figured all this out before they shipped the product out the door.

What do you mean? they had a good product before they wanted to make it better so added a better pump rad and fans...

Do you really think you're going to pay for a Porsche boxter and get a 911?

Corsair has good support compared to a lot of anonymous brands that you can't even speak to.

No, actually I didn't expect a 911, what I expected was a product that didn't squeal like a dog whistle to the point where I had to rewire it to the motherboard using their competition's (Noctua) Noise Adapters to slow down their fans.

Have you ever heard of the 1/10/100 rule in business?

Fix the problems BEFORE they hit the customers hands. As for the support, lets hope so.

I have not had any problems, fan or pump related since I bought mine so not sure what all the fuss is, I still run the stock fans and they are silent pretty much on the "balanced" setting, they only ramp up when I am gaming so I cannot hear them anyways, and they are keeping a 4.3gig i7 930 painfully cool. Thats not to take away issues that some may have, just that some people like to focus on the issues a minority have (post firmware upgrade) as opposed to the strengths of a product.

Whilst on the subject of cars, my wife runs a little Ford, it cost £11,000 new, I drive a Jaguar XF, it cost £31,000 new, in 2 years her car has been trouble free, for 4 months of those 2 years my car has been in the garage getting repaired.... suffice to say that I will never buy a Jaguar heap of junk again, however Jaguar in the last 2 years have increased their car sales worldwide proportionally greater than any manufacturer.... what does that tell you? :D

If problems could be predicted BEFORE they reach the customers hands the world would collapse, there would be no need for all but a few garages to do routine servicing, no need for support networks with every manufacturer etc etc..... just aint gonna happen, go talk to Toyota, who for the previous 10 years rated in the worlds top 3 most reliable car manufacturers before they had to recall half a million cars worldwide in 2011.

I have the H100i and am really impressed with it so far. It keeps my temps cool on my i7 2700K:toast: This is my first AIO water cooling system for my CPU. Not bad....

Nothing's perfect, I get that part. The H80i unit cools great, too.

Unfortunately, in this situation I had just spent over a month building an Apple G5 case mod. The first startup is a very exciting moment. Within minutes, I found myself searching for a high-pitched noise that I had never heard before.

It resulted in a complete tear down of what I had just finished building. Every component was removed one by one to isolate the noise. I even reflashed the Radeon 6870 bios with higher volts to alleviate possible GPU coil whine. The corsair turned out to be the culprit. The only fix available was to use noctua parts that I had on hand.

After all the work I put into this, to rip it all apart again was very frustrating. This wasn't simply a case of popping in a new part that malfunctioned. At least it's quiet now, I'm waiting for an official solution from corsair just like everyone else.

Here's the build that I'm talking about.

Some updates from the Corsair forum. The fix for fan whine will be a new set of fans controlled via PWM.

For those who are, we will be releasing a new set of fans that will address this high pitch and buzzing noise.
You'll need to RMA them to receive the new fans.

Once they are released just submit an RMA, but in the comments section explain that you would like to RMA JUST the fans. Should be that easy!

A little update again. I read from the Corsair forums that the new fans are shipping and all affected should RMA and tell that they need the new fans. The new fans will be the same type, except for being PWM vs DC.

Did the RMA and got an email from a customer service rep telling that the new fans will ship tomorrow. Don't have to send anything back.

Will update with results once I get them.

Just ordered me the h80i, $79. CAD at ncix today, to replace an older model(I forget which number)

I'll put the old ones on the wife's machine, whose stock fan sounds like a 747 landing....
