Request: iCUE ELITE CAPELLIX - Lower RPM (< 2000 RPM) for Quiet Profile via Firmware


Recommended Posts

Hi,

As i can understand, Corsair won't do anything to fix that problem! i'll return it tomorrow to swap it.

Any advice on a another Corsair one witrh loooooow noise ? RGB if possible.

 

Thanks

 

Pro Series, eg. H115 Pro that has the old pump.

I created a ticket last weekend, (2004358649) the noise makes me crazy

 

as my local store wants me to return the product, which would leave my pc without cooling,

I'm curious what response i will get from corsair

I hope i'm not spamming and that my additions will be useful

 

I got a new iCUE ELITE CAPELLIX unit directly from Corsair as replacement

It makes even more noise than the previous one

 

The product is just not okay, much too noisy in comparison to any other similar product on the market

 

I'll have to go back to the PRO series, loosing some money in the operation

Wish I would have seen this thread before buying my h100i elite, same pump noise whine. Made an account just to add one more to this. I also submitted a do not buy review on Amazon to warn others to stay away from this product if they care about having a quiet operating system. It's a shame because I like the design, switched over from a NZXT x53 which had full speed control through CAM, normal speed at no gaming temps was set to 1750 rpm and was dead quiet. Increasing above 2k produces a similar type of sound, but I care about having a quiet running system when just browsing the web or doing non intensive tasks. Is the EK the recommendation for a similar style? Changed from the NZXT because I swapped from a H210i case to the Phanteks p200a for larger GPU support and was getting tired of looking at the NZXT logo smack in the middle of the pump head.

I would love to see the pump speed reduced. I went all corsair this last build and I am pretty disappointed with the pump noise. If there is a way to reduce the speed via update I would absolutely love it.

I would also see the pump speed reduce below 2200RPM. I have the same problem. I am on quiet and i cant do office work because the louse is too loud at 2300 rpm.

please update it with a firmware.

I have the same problem. H100i capellix. I am using Intel mounting bracket (11400F) the whiny pitch noise from the pump is driving me insane, it’s the loudest part in my machine by far. I noticed we had an update on icue which allows it to now go at “variable speed” unfortunately that also is very noisy. Can we get an update please. Driving me insane. I’m surprised Corsair claim they haven’t had the issue themselves, you must have fans running at 100% if you can’t hear it which isn’t really an option. As it stands I can’t sit at my computer for more than an hour before I get a headache with this pump noise.

I bought the Corsair H150i Elite Capellix and I was in love with it. It was the nicest pump I have seen and had in my hands. But this noise, is so unbelievable annoying. After some time I even got a lightly headache because of this "humming noise". It seems that I was able to hear it while my parents were not.
I was pretty unhappy to return it and to get another brand in my all-Corsair build, which is no more all-Corsair RGB.

But seriously, it's just funny to see Corsair instead of stopping this production and fixing this problem (Which is no problem, but just the noise the pump will make no matter what you do about it, which means just use another pump) not listening to their customers and keep pumping (ha-ha) out products with this new pump. First releasing iCue 4 with a ton of bugs for Idk how long, then seeing my Void Wireless not being supported anymore and now this. Corsair, you are losing a lot of people because of the things you doing lately...

And seriously, 2200~2300RPM as low profile? :')

Other user, other complaint.
Like most people here, I have this noise issue with the pump.
Again, an update of the firmware would be welcome, not necessarily to break the speed of the pump, but at least to go down to 2000 rpm.

Otherwise I tried Argus Monitor, but unable to control the pump of my iCUE H150i Elite Capellix (Argus only detects the fan of the pump, but changing the value does not change anything). I have successfully closed the iCue software and Corsair services. If anyone has good experience with Argus and can help?

But the best thing will still be to modify the firmware and this 3-factor choice, be more precise, or even lower the speed slightly.

Yeah, it is very loud.

Corsair - Is it really not possible to run with lower RPM? I ask because the old water cooling got a FW with much lower RPMs ... Can you confirm, that the pump is louder with AM4 Sockets as with Intel?

And last question: Is there a time to run the pump until it will be more silent?

I built a setup with Corsair 500D Obsidian and H115i Elite Capellix to run a silent computer ...

They did say this model of pump cannot run slower due to it's design. This was posted earlier in the thread.

They also said below, which is it? Can these units run silent or not? The answer is  no at that speed, but there has been no update either from below either. When these were first sold they were advertised as with silent modes.

We are looking into the issue. I can say that the personal unit I have has ran open air for months and I can not hear it.

Is the Pro definitely silent (or legitimately close to silent) on its low pump mode? 

I read some complaints online about the Pro's fans but I don't really understand why since they're also ML and surely adjustable? I'm also going to have to downgrade from the Capellix's hellish pump noise but I don't want to just end up with a new problem.

I run the Pro on balanced not quiet and its still silent. I run my fans on silent though and you cannot hear anything.

Cappelix looks amazing but the noise is terrible so had to go.

Same problems with the noise on the Quiet mode but the pump does less noise in the mode variable speed.

In quied mode the speed is always above 2300 rpm but the variable mode it is between 2230 and 2260.

It is still not quiet but at least it is less annoying.

Thanks for the response. I totally agree. Can't believe the Capellix passed quality control like this to be honest.

just made an account for this.

 

I spent over 3000€ in my new build. Went all in Corsair to get am pump which is worse than tinitus. I cant enjoy my new gaming pc, just because of this fucking pump.


I will never ever recommend this pump to anyone nor other Corsair Products. U have lost a good costumer Corsair!
