Question Corsair H100 max rpm problem

I hope someone know whats wrong with the fan. I have tested both fans in all of the 4 fan connectors and it's only one of them which spins at max rpm.

PS. when i connect it to the motherboard it's fine.

If they are the stock Corsair fans doing this , then the fan controller is failing and the unit should be replaced.

If this is the case then use the link on the left to request an RMA

It's the stock fans but it's only one of them. I can't see how it's the controller when it worked fine yesterday and from one second to another it failed.

Unfortunately it does happen. Each fan has it's own channel per se, and it's not uncommon for one of them to fail like this while the others remain unaffected. Not that fan controller issues are all that common in the first place.

Submit an RMA request and explain what the issue is. Let us know that you are only having problem with one fan and the other is ok. We can send you just the fan, that way you don't have to send back the whole unit.

Hey RG,The fan that is not working on the h100 works fine when connected to the MB .So it's not the fan that is the issue.:)

The next version of the H100 should have a detached fan controller, that way when it fails, customers don't need to remove the H100 from their CPU to replace it.
