Corsair H80i very annoying noise

Hi guys, thanks for taking the time to look at this.

 

I have recently purchased a custom built PC from a site called PC Specialists. I ordered the H80i to be put in as my cooler. Its a brilliant cooler but the noise is horrendous! It makes the most noise on start up (which I don't mind) but goes up and down in noise depending on what im doing. I don't mind it being loud but there is a buzzing noise aswell. I know its definatly the cooler as when I turn the case fans off the noise is still there! Is there anyway I can change the fans that come with it? if so could you recommend some please? I don't want to sacrifice performance for noise, just incase it doesn't cool enough.

 

Thanks.

Sorry to go a little bit off topic. I have a very loud noise with my H80i fans. Thinking of changing them to the Sp120 Quiet version. Not sure if I can as they have a lot less RPM. Does this mean that they wont cool the system properly? Thanks mate.

I'm sure you can use the quiet editions, it's just that the SP one's are for heat sinks and radiators so they are the preferred option.

Hi guys,

 

I have recently purchased a custom built Pc from a site called PC Specialists. I have the H80i installed. I can not belive how loud the fans are! My temps are fine and even on quiet mode they are still loud!

 

My question is... Can i change the stock fans that come with the H80i with Corsair SP120 Quiet edition? I know they run at alot less RPM but i dont know if this will do damage. Will it still cool the CPU as it should with no problems? Please help!

what your hearing on boot is the fans maxing till windows starts where fan profile kicks in...the noise you hear in windows is the various rpm changes due to load demands which also is normal...

Then I'd say that something isn't installed/configured correctly. The only time my H80is or H100i are loud is when the systems are being stressed. Other than then, it's a soft white noise.
