  1. I am on my second brand new unit of this AIO and have had the exact same issue. A persistent loud buzzing noise almost like a chainsaw. When I tap the cooler it stops momentarily. My first unit went a month before it started making this sound, this one lasted a day. Does anyone know what the cause of this is and how to remedy it? I really would prefer not dismantling my system again and getting another replacement. Here's a link to the Reddit thread I started when the first unit went
  2. My H115i is rattling all of the time. This is the 5th Corsair AIO cooler that has suffered this problem in about 3 years. They seem to get to 6-9 months then start rattling. In Australia our RMA process requires us to send the units back to Taiwan, at around 80% of the cost of the original purchase price of the unit. ($123 AUD vs $155 respectively). So I've just been throwing them in the garbage one after the other. Seems a pointless exercise. I thought it might be my usage patterns that are causing the problems.. I run the pump quiet mode most of the time. It only gets changed to performance when I'm rendering videos or playing games like PUBG. The fans likewise are on very low duty cycles. Most of the time they are at ~ 350RPM. I use 2x Commander Pro's to manage the speeds of the 11 fans as loads increase. Regardless of whether I return the unit to the re-seller or send it to Corsair I'm without a cooler (From my last one I did send back), for around 4-6 weeks. On an overclocked Skylake-X system, I need a capable cooler. Needless to say, I'm starting to lose faith in Corsair coolers. I can't go NZXT because it's incompatible with Avast AV, CAM software is extremely buggy and the telemetry thrashes hard drives/ssds and bogs my system down. And I've got 10 systems all running Corsair. 5 of Which are also using Commander Pro's.. So I have a significant investment in Corsair Products. I would appreciate any advice or thoughts on this matter...
  3. Hello! I bought a new Corsair VS450 like 3 weeks ago. Right after I got home and started my computer, I noticed that my headphones were making a constant buzzing noise and a different, louder noise when I started scrolling on web pages. But that's not the issue now. After reinstalling some drivers, the noise eventual disappeared. I shared this information because it might somehow be useful for what I'm about to tell you. After several days, a loud rattling noise started. The desk also started to vibrate. After checking things out, I noticed that Corsair is creating that noise and the vibrating. Now, the thing is that it's not constant. Sometimes it starts doing that after 2 hours, sometimes after 8 hours. Sometimes it's very loud and causes vibrations; sometimes it's not so loud, and without vibrations. Sometimes it stops after 10 minutes and starts again after one hour... It's completely random. One thing is for sure, the rattling and vibrating don't start when I turn on the computer. It usually takes a minimum of 2 hours. Also, it doesn't matter if I'm playing a game or just listening to music. It can start any time. And I'm not using overclocking. I went with the computer back to the shop where I bought the Corsair VS450 from, but since it didn't make any noise there (stayed there like 2 hours), the guys couldn't be sure that the sound is indeed caused by the Corsair, so the only thing that they did is to re-arrange all the wires and perform all sorts of system tests, which were alright. I care to note that my computer was also recently cleaned, so no dust and stuff. I'm writing here because maybe some of you guys have an idea what could the issue be, so at least I know for sure what's causing this. Is the Corsair to blame? Maybe some parts of the computer are creating some sort of conflict with it? Or could there be any other issue? The first thing I can think of is the Corsair's cooler. That's what the guys from the shop thought as well. But if the Corsair's cooler is broken or something, why doesn't it make that noise and vibrations all the time? It doesn't quite make sense. Wish it would make like this all the time so I can go back to the shop and get it changed or fixed. So, have you guys encountered something like this? Have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!
