Default My H100i generates grinding/rattling noises, help please.

Just got my unit today, and amazingly I was able to install it into the case.
But there is a problem, see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi3f0sqiLbw

It is pretty loud, not as loud as the GS700 noise generator, but loud enough that I can hear the grinding from outside the room.

RAM GUY help please.

If I am unable to address this issue, I would like to request a replacement--is that fine, RAM GUY?

Alright after spending a good hour disassembling the computer and checking the parts, I believe I found where the sound is coming from--it's coming from the fans.

On a side note, I love the temperature readings I am getting off it. A quick 15 minute test on Prime95 gives me a reading of min of 26-28c and max of 68-71c over clocked at 1.272v/4.5 GHz.

I was going to stop my RMA process re my noisy H100 and not waste £35 posting it back to Corsair in Holland. My thinking was that I'd buy a H100i instead...

This pump thing goes on eh! It's becoming a little tiresome.

So here's my Q - is the H100i noisier than an replaced H100 with SP120's on it?

I would imagine the H100i would be quieter than the previous model; however, that's assuming it worked as it should.

It's strange after reading all the wonderful improvements they have done to this cooler, you would think that the rattling/grinding noise would have been taken care of.

Cooler looks amazing with this CORSAIR LED fonts but this noise is 2 times louder than my H100 with grinding sound. This is fault cooler I think it's not normal.
Please don't judge immediately. This coolers is better and better and this is future of CPU cooling.
What is with fan noise, it's not so loud as H100 fans on full speed.

Yeah, I am suspecting that might be the deal. It's a shame too, I ordered it around the time it hit the shelves and at full price (the 10% discount did not appear when I ordered.) Like I said before, the performance on it is great--if only it did not generate so much noise.

With that being said, I am still waiting for a Corsair response. Time for me to pull out the RAM GUY signal.

It does not sound like the pump noise that we have seen from the H80/H100 but it does sound like maybe a loose bracket. Try to put your hand on top of the pump and see if the noise changes.

No difference in noise. And the bracket is firmly secured in place.

Watching that video makes my stomach hurt.

Have a new H100i shipping in from the Corsair Store, just hoping like last time I get a good one, crossing fingers and toes.

If I do receive a noisy unit, still have the fan controller from the last H100 purchase (last April) on stand-by ready to go if needed.

I think RAM GUY might be seeking out a very tall building right about now.

Don't do it RAM GUY, we all love you here man!

I doubt an emergency meeting has been called, but I bet those iPhones are burning up the wires at Corsair Central.

On a happy note, your temps are great man, I'm running just a simple Asus CPU level up in Bios 1309 at 4.2GHz, 1.282vcore. Idle with H100 27C. When you get your cooler issue resolved, and I pray that to be very soon, please send me your Bios o/c profile. Wishing you luck man, and thanks for sharing the news with us today.
