Re: Anyone got a noisy H80 or H100 cooler on ther cpu?
I just isntalled an H60 unit on my i5 3570k this weekend. When connected to my cpu fan header the pump is basically left wide open and my bios showed it running at 4200 rpm. It was EXTREMELY noisy. Like an old IDE hard drive chewing away at 1's and 0's. I could hear it over all the fans in my system and it was ANNOYING. I played with some of the other fan headers, but either they were too fast (similar to CPU fan header) or too slow, and temps would rise fast).
I ended up connecting H60 pump to my 600t case fan controller along with the two ans i have on push/pull (exhausting the case). I now have full control over the two fans, and the pump with a nice built in knob on the top of my corsair 600t. The pump is quite, and temps on the CPU are mid to high 20's....ambient 20C. And that is with the fan controller right in the middle. I am satisfied.
I will probably overclock, but not too much.
