The pump sound is like like most every other working pump I am familiar with. I don't hear anything out of the ordinary and it sounds smooth. Perceived loudness is something you have to judge for yourself. Quiet should be hard to hear unless you jam your head in the case. Balanced should mostly be covered by fan noise. Extreme is going to be heard at the desktop level. Warning signs might be unexpected sound changes or if a slower speed was louder than a faster one. The largest factor will be proximity. If you are 20 cm from the case while sitting at your desk, you are going to hear everything. That may or may not be something that can be changed, but if you are at close range you may need to build your equipment with that in mind. In the same vein, if the Eisbaer was dead silent and this is not, then perhaps another suits your needs. I know my $200 D5 is not any quieter than the Asetek pump on my H115i PRO at 2000 rpm. However, some frequencies just strike people the wrong way and if the H150i is making you miserable, don't keep it.

The fan I certainly can hear. I am not sure what it is. It appears to change with speed and in a smooth and uniform fashion. To me, this seems like a motor issue which is not something you would be able to solve. However, from a practicality standpoint, it would make sense to test what you can do -- namely make sure the fans is not rubbing on something or the screws are too tight. A quick 1/4 or 1/2 turn to loosen the offending fan should verify or rule that out. If that does not solve it, you likely want to put something else there. Corsair should replace it for you, pending any other decision about the cooler.

ok thanks i will see then

For the rgb fans, since it requieres to be plugged on the the commander pro, it needs another RGB so how should I do? If i take it do i plug it instead of the Link cable on my mobo and plug all the fans i want to control and Rgb customized on the commander ?

I have also another SERIOUS issue. Following my previous post about the noisy fans, I've took it out to get the screws of the fans a bit looser. That's all I did but since then I have issues of random reboots and some bsod.. I don't understand how that can be related

It can’t be directly related, but check the 24 pin and 8 pin ATX power cables up top to make sure they are secure. A scarier proposition is the pump is too tight on the cpu, but that would only make sense if you tightened it down or bumped it in some way. I will get back to you later on the RGB thing.

OK, I thought I remembered but which RGB fans are you interested in? They don't necessarily require a Commander Pro. They all will work with a Lighting Node Pro that comes in most of the multi-packs. That allows the software connection. A commander Pro is the same thing, but is also a 6 port fan controller that will allow software control through the iCUE app for any connected fans.

Well i was thinking of the ML one.

By the way i found a video on youtube which shows kinda the annoying sound I have with the fans


Is it an ok temperature 37/37.5 for the coolant in game? 67c package cpu in same game. for a delid of course

Hi,

i was considering taking the NF-A12x25 Noctua fans for replacing the AIO one. i'll put my phanteks halo on it so I won't see the ugly noctua color.

Do you think they are compatible with the AIO and ICU for setting speed and all ?

The A12 should work and the Corsair controller can handle my NF-F12 Industrial PWM. However, perhaps someone else is using a standard variant and can directly confirm. The only complaints about control for Noctua have been on the Industrial line which has a different motor than the standard series.

Well i just ordered 3 NF F12 chromax, if you say they are compatible, should be worth it the specs are far better than the one coming with the aio...

when you say with the controler, you mean they will work when plugued on the pump too?

Yes, if it has trouble on the Pro cooler's internal controller, it usually does not work with the Commander Pro controller and vice versa. I am not sure the improved specifications will amount to an actual cooling difference, but then I would change simply for color if that's what I wanted. Despite looking like the industrial line, the black Chromax series does not use the same motor and should perform just like the brown/latte variants. I'm afraid the low speed noise from the ML in a very quiet setting is part of the deal and related to the bearing type. You get less noise at moderate speeds than other fans, but there is definitely a background noise at the desktop in a quiet room. I go through various levels of ignoring it/hating it. With just two fans, it's harder to pick out but with a case full (5x140mm), I do notice on these cold, quiet mornings and that usually leads to a different choice in the Winter months.

The coolant depends on where you started and that depends most heavily on the your room/case temperature. In a CPU only test, I would expect a +4-6C change with the fans running moderately high. Gaming becomes more difficult to assess because the GPU is heating up the case at the same time. Each +1C of case heat is automatically +1C in coolant temp. It is not uncommon for people to see higher coolant temps when gaming compared to a CPU stress test. Take not of where the coolant is before gaming, then note any other changes to other hardware temps (motherboard, drives, etc) to see if you can make a guess as to how much is environmental. Pretty common to see +10C depending on GPU.

Perfect then, if they are silent, perform good and I'll manage to get rid of the clicketing fan i have it's all I need :)

ok so nothing to worry about then ! thanks

At start i'm like around 30 to 32, gaming the max i saw was 38ish

Pretty much exactly as expected. Case temps are likely around 28-30C. The only way to lower it further is to reduce the room temperature, something that has its own problems and restrictions. Blasting the fans on the desktop is pointless.

Noctua NF F12 installed, no issues with the AIO but just one last thing on this topic, i see that even at 100% the fans are only going untill around 1400rpm but not 1500 as they should be, any ideas?

Hi !

is there a really big difference between the extreme and balanced profile for the pump speed speaking in temp?

Thanks

There should be no difference in coolant temp between the balanced and extreme pump speeds for a 8700K. I see identical temps on my H115i Pro with the 8700K clocked a little higher. You can leave it on balanced all the time without penalty.
