I stopped both my fans with my fingers, and the sound kept going, im not sure if its coming form the pump or radiator.

This whining sound cuts through everything, clearly the loudest thing in my case atm, incredible annoying.

But is it the radiator itself? it may be the pump, because sometimes if i turn the speed on the pump/fan up and down again, it can be quiet for some minutes, and then it starts again..

I hope Corsair looking into this!

I'm also having a high pitched buzzing with the H100i after the firmware update. The update DID remove the previously terrible rattling sound, but it is now replaced by this absurdly high pitched noise. The worst part is it cuts in and out every few seconds. This is very disappointing. How did these issues get past QA after all the problems with the original H100? Anyone could hear the rattling was a problem and now this is just as obvious.

We are currently trying to replicate this issue right now internally.. I'll provide some updates once we got confirmation of this high pitch noise.

This isn't really a quality control issue. Unfortunately...things that are manufactured cannot always work 100% as you would like to.

For example
The FW update works fine on other units and doesn't on some.

It may depend on how you have the H100i mounted in your PC case - Rad or fan attached to case. If the radiator is attached to the case with the fans below, any vibration could be amplified. This is the reason some are claiming it is the radiator making the noise. It is a fan noise, not the pump or radiator. Since the fans are attached you can hear the noise through the rad. Sound travels through liquid and metal.

So why do this noise stop if you connect the same fans to the motherboard instead? and one guy in the H100i firmware thread mentioned the noise stopped when he swapped out the H100i fans with SP120's.

It has to be something with the way the H100i fans AND the pump are working togheter.

Well, if you disconnect the fans, the noise is gone. try for yourself, like i did.

As i said, i think this has something to do with the Pump AND the fans working togheter creating this noise. A firmware issue or something.

My H100i is not recogniced my Windows anymore, (firmware failure most probably) and the Corsair logo on the pump no longer light up, so when i turn on my Pc, the fans just spin in a high rpm. and guess what, there is NO high pitched noise what so ever.

I have both the H100i and the H80i, did the firmware update on both. Rattle noise is gone. I am using the stock fans. I do not have the the whining noise that several of you are seeing. Curious as to how many are using other fans.

I just sent my H100i back to Corsair yesterday for RMA due to this exact issue. I wonder if the firmware update has bricked some H100i's. RAMGUY did say that he wanted to take a look at some of these units himself.

Edit:

Been looking around on the forums so my question is no longer relevant.
