Hey my H60 water pump makes a weird clicking noise similar to a HDD Tick etc.. is this normal? it stops doing it if I hook it up to my fan controller and lower the voltage to about 9 volts. Is this normal?

I have it on my H80 look over at corsair forums and you can read all about the noise.
Common problem with H100/H80 my noise stops with a diode that drops close to 1 volt
Still by lowering the voltage by 1 volt I lose 220 RPM off a marginal pump at best

Had the same (or at least some annoying sound, dont know if its "hard drive clicking") but for me it was "fixed" by fliping (if that's the right word.. "kicking" it with my forefinger like you would kick a paper ball) against the pump housing 1/few times while it was running (on your own risk, but I doubt it could damage the pump/mainboard.. just dont punch it with your fist lol). In the beginning it was there everytime i booted up, was already considering to RMA, but after a while (1-2 weeks maybe?) it was completely gone.

hmm this has been growing as of late - corsair need to bring their A game back in terms of QC

okay here's whats happening
1| there's an airlock in the pump/cooling plate chamber, thus why some have been able to remove the sound by flicks of the pump chamber or by flipping the rad to have the hoses feed from the bottom of rad.
2| if 1 volt drops 220rpm's off of a pump - thas (9x 220) rpm's down - i.e 1980rpm. hang on! isn't the pump rated to run @ 1400rpm's? whats your pumping running at now - OP?
3| +1 to it being a marginal pump.

Hmm, will do a lil digging - I have the H50 which runs at 1400rpm's w/ +/- 5~10%, their pump modules are about the same for all their ranges. Will post back. OFC you could gun me down faster with google :) ...?
