  1. Hey, thanks for the suggestions. I tried running my pump at the Extreme setting and my radiator fans at full speed for about an hour with my PC on its side. Unfortunately though the humming is still there. It's a consistent tone so unfortunately it may be mechanical. And that's true, my PC is fine otherwise and every other component gives me little to no bother due to how quiet they are, it's unfortunately just the pump that's suddenly giving me hassle. I may use the opportunity to upgrade to a new cooler before deciding if I want to ask Corsair for a replacement of the same model.
  2. Hello. I've had an issue for a while now where the pump of my AIO a Corsair iCUE H150i RGB Elite has been making a very loud humming noise, much louder than my fans. It is not the fans that are causing the issue as even with all of my fans at 0 RPM the humming persists. Lowering the preset of my pump from Standard to Quiet changes the pitch of the humming but it is still very loud. I recently switched out the front fans of my PC case and had to remove my radiator which is mounted at the top of my case to give myself some room. I originally went with Corsair AF120 fans to match those on my radiator and also included a Commander Core XT. I unplugged the USB connection of my cooler from the mobo and into the passthrough on the Core, though I ended up switching my fans again to another brand and plugged the USB of my cooler back into the mobo. I noticed that the USB was slightly loose when I reconnected it to the mobo, I don't remember if it was loose beforehand, but the RGB turns on fine. I saw a post online saying that a lack of proper voltage could cause humming so I'm not too sure if this is the issue and somehow by plugging the USB of my cooler into the passthrough has stretched the connectors. I've also considered that it could be either coil whine or a trapped air bubble. I've tried tilting my machine back and forth gently to encourage the bubble to come out but to no success unfortunately. I also tried running my CPU fans at high speed for a while but this also did not work. I've opened my machine several times and made sure that everything was tight and that there is nothing touching the pump but everything looks fine. The tubing of my cooler also looks okay and is positioned upwards towards the radiator mounted on top, though there is a very slight dip due to its length but comparing it to others’ it looks fine. I've also tried uninstalling iCUE as in some threads people suggested that the humming could be the result of background processes but this also did not help. I'm a little stumped as to what to do now other than replace the cable or buy a new cooler altogether. I noticed that there are some complaints that the Capellix model has some coil whine issues but it can't be coincidence that the issue began shortly after doing some work on my PC, so it's probably more likely that I've got a trapped air bubble or somehow it's the fact that the USB connection from the pump to the mobo is loose that's the issue. Looking for advice on next steps, if not replacing the cable first. I want to try a few more things first before I buy a new cable or cooler. Thanks.

  3. Hi there, apologies in advance if the topic on third party software is not allowed. I have a Corsair iCUE H150i Elite RGB and have been trying to get it to work with FanControl by Rem0o over on Github in order to directly control the fans from there. Also while testing OpenRGB I noticed the AIO is the only component which it cannot detect, all other RGB devices except for the pump are being detected. FanControl can read the RPM and speed percentages of the CPU fans but it cannot control them directly, it's being overwritten. My motherboard is an ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming. I'm unsure if it's something to do with the way the CPU cooler has been wired. My PC is custom built, I chose the parts but did not actually put it together myself. On expecting the inside it looks as though it's wired the same way as described in the manual via an X1 USB-C Wire Harness, with the pump tach cable connected to the CPU_FAN header on my motherboard and the cooler connected to a USB 2.0 header. The pump is connected via USB and the fans are individually connected to the harness. The harness is connected to the power supply via SATA. I've spoken to a people online about it and they've suggested that I have my CPU cooler connected to a Commander Core and that I should instead connect the CPU fans to the CPU_FAN header. However, I do not have a Commander Core and the CPU cooler is only connected via the X1 USB-C Wire Harness, which is already connected to the CPU_FAN header via the pump tach cable. I think there's a bit of confusion between the Elite RGB and Elite Caplellix variants, the latter which does come with a Commander Core. The CPU cooler I have comes with 3 non-RGB 120mm fans. The only RGB I have is on the pump itself. I currently have iCUE installed but I do not use it and do not have it set to run on start-up. It came preinstalled on my PC when it first arrived. However, I had to reinstall Windows which removed it but have since reinstalled it again just to check if the firmware is up to date, which it is as of February 21 using v. 1.02.07, and to see if having it would help solve my compatibility issues, but unfortunately it does not. I'm a little stumped on how to get them to communicate with both pieces of software and looking for a bit of advice on how I might be able to get them to work together. Again, apologies if the topic is not allowed as it discusses third party software but would like to be able to control all of my fans and RGB from the same locations. Cheers.
