150i Elite Capellix Pump speed 2.2k RPM on quiet mode.

So I bought this on Monday and installed since then I have heard this humming sound coming from my PC. Ive stopped all my fans and realised it was the pump. I checked in ICUE and realised it was running at 2.2k RPM in quiet mode. if I change it to balanced, 2.4k and Extreme 2.6k. Is this a bug in ICUE or have I installed the cooler wrong?

 

ICUE is on the latest version and so too is the firmware for the cooler. I have 9 fans connected via commander pro, commander core and node core. The commander core and commander pro are both plugged into my mobo.

 

Any ideas or have I got a faulty cooler?

I upgraded from H150i pro to the 150i Elite Capellix 360mm today.

 

I was disappointed that the pump would not go lower than 2.2k RPM.

 

The H150I pro had 1100 rpm mode which was silent. with combination of 4 LL fans, 3 ML fans and 3 QL fans, it was dead silent.

 

I am debating whether to go back H150i Pro which was silent at 1100 RPM pump speed.

 

This humming noise is driving me nuts from the Coolit pump. It really is a weird design. only 200 RPM difference between each profile. what is the Point?

 

Lastly there is no performance difference between the two models.

 

H150i Pro RGB Pump = asetek

Elite Line = Coolit

 

I should have done more research before buying the elite.

It looks like others have complained about the platinum line of corsair AIOs which also use coolit brand of pump.

 

Corsair resolved the issues with a firmware update to make the quite profile go under 2000 rpm for the pump.

Can we please get a firmware update for the elite lines to have the quiet pump rpm to go under 2000.

 

I really like the how the elite looks over my old H150i pro but there is no reason why it should run at 2200+ rpm at quiet profile, it is just excessive.

hi all,

 

I bought the H150! Elite Capelix WC and works great ! i bought 3 LL120 too to put at the front of the PC.

BUT, there is a Huge issue with that WC, the PUMP noise :(

How such a brand as corsair still hasn't release a firmware to fix that issue like they did with the PRO version ? i don't understand this.

this PUMP turns constantly at 2.238 rpm in quiet mode. the only thing i ear in my pc is that PUMP :(

Please Corsair, fix that issue with an update FW.

thank you.

There's not going to be any update to let you reduce the speed below 2300 RPM. The pump needs a certain amount of flow to keep the impeller floating, if it dips too low it starts making noise and you'd see reduced reliability.

 

What I would suggest is making sure the mounting screws on the socket are turned completely and not loose. If it's loose you get some resonance.

 

Take a screwdriver and just turn the thumbnut with minimal force, don't torque it or force it when the screw stops. If it is already all the way tight, you can try to back the screw off slightly to see if it changes anything with that resonant sound.

 

Lastly, if you still have this problem contact our support for a replacement. It shouldn't be this loud. Attach your receipt/invoice if you submit the ticket and they'll help you pretty quickly.

Hi Johan,

 

thank you very much for your proposal. i'll try what you said and if no success, i would like indeed to swap it with an another corsair AIO.

 

have a nice week end
