Default H80 fans are LOUD!

On top of the fact that my H80 isn't cooling correctly, the fans are super loud on the medium fan speed. Ugh... Looking like im going custom water cooling.

Can you hear the fans change speed when you set the different profiles?

Yes i can. Low settings is ok, but medium and high are way to loud. Kinda of annoying for a water cooling system. I was expecting a more silent cooling alternative, but i was wrong with this choice

How many fans are you using? Try the fans one at a time to be sure one is not just bad. The H80 is not that loud, I am using it in my system now!

It a common issue on some boards. Try turning the block 90 degrees either direction. This allows most users to fit the block correctly. So far i have only seen one MB that absolutely can't use the Corsair coolers because of caps in the way.
