Corsair Hydro H100i RGB Platinum SE Fans Loud


Recommended Posts

Hello, I've noticed recently the fans on the top of my pc are being quite loud, so i bought a corsair commander pro to dial them down so i dont hear them as much. But it's not helping they're still loud, whenever I'm playing games like Warzone or RE7 etc. Any advice?

You don't need a Commander Pro to control the fan speed on the Platinum's radiator fans. it has a it's own internal fan controller and you should leave the two radiator fans on the pump splitter. That is the native control source and it works with or without CUE running. While on the Commander, CUE must be running for the Commander to be able to get the data from the cooler.

 

Currently you have the fans on the Commander set to 700 rpm fixed and that is what they are doing. If that is loud, then I am not sure what the problem could be. However, you don't want to use the Quiet/Balanced/Extreme presets for the Commander. It does not mean the same thing as on the AIO. You've already created a custom curve. The next step is to pick a better sensor control variable. The default is CPU temp and that has no bearing ion internal case temperature in a water cooled system. Easy quick choices are GPU temp or motherboard temp. Both have a stronger correlation to internal case temperature. Since you have a Corsair AIO, you can also use coolant temperature to balance fans. There are three shape tools in the corner of the graph that do correspond with the three curves in the Platinum controller. The best solution is to use one fo the temp probes from the Commander to measure rear exhaust temp. You can use another to measure intake temp as well for a contrast point. This is the native control variable for the Commander and it will work at all times, CUE running or not. The trick is you have to learn your normal temp range. It will unique for each setup and of course change with the seasons and room temp. That is true for all the other temps as well.

Hmm ok, i will rewire them from my corsair commander to the fan splitters provided by the cooler itself. I downloaded GPU Temp as you recommended and whilst playing resident evil village its at 49 degrees celcius, but the fans are still loud. I will let you know if they are loud still after rewiring them back to the cooler.

Ok so i switched them and there is still little noise and also i forgot to mention, it's not my water cooler fans that are loud like that it's the fans that are on the top part of my case https://gyazo.com/a21171c9ac8deeed6549a747330e37dc

Here's my iCUE settings afterwards https://gyazo.com/c76e63a4a0b6d067faf5ab69b3274381

If you do not have any overheating going on in the system, you can easily set the case fans to 5-800 RPM. The 700 RPM C-attack suggest should be a good setting, and should barely be audible (the fans on the AIO should preferably be controlled by the preset profiles)

Thank you all for your answers, with further investigation i realized it was actually my GPU and PSU making the noise and not the fans. So i flipped my PSU upside down and there's no fan noise anymore. Thank you all again.

Good to hear! If you decide you want more control of your fans in the future, you can set them to a custom fan curve. Press the + to the right of Performance/Cooling, and create a custom fan curve. Set it to where you want your fans to be and this should calm them down a bit.
