Raarup Posted December 18, 2012 Share Posted December 18, 2012 Hey guys. I got the same issue as everyone and I didnt want to settle with the "connect fans to motherboard" solution. So I changed the fans on the H100i rad, to some 120mm Noctua fans that I got, max speed of 1500 rpm, also very silent stuff. This completely removed the high pintch noise that was comming from the unite. I also have it hocked up to the pump, so I can manage the fans just fine in CorsairLINK without any issues, cooling is fine, my i5-2500k idles at around 28-30c, load temps are fine as well, I set the fans to 800rpm through CorsairLINK and dont have issues at all with temps underload. I cant see how a firmware should change this, when the issue is fans themself, at least it was/is for me - but I would recommend people to change the fans if you dont want to settle with the "connect to mb" solution. I know that Corsair advices people to use thier own fans because its build around this, but when you are able to manage the rpm yourself through CorsairLINK, I dont really see what the issue should be, nothing can be ruined when you are in control yourself. Anyways, my input guys - hope it helps, when Corsair comes around with a fix you can just change the fans back if you want it. /Raarup. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
