[SOLVED - H100 BAD PUMP] Crosshair V + Corsair H100 booting problems

Last response: in CPUs

Here is thr email I just sent Corsair.

Quote:
Hi, installed the H100 this pass Sunday and everything was working fine. I ran a few stress tests to see what temps I was getting with the new H100. CPU temp was at steady 38* while using Prime95 for 30mins. Computer ran perfect for the rest of the day.

Today however it booted up fine when I got home, started up Folding @ Home & FireFox then the PC shut down. I turned it on, nothing on screen then it shut down on its own. Pressed clear cmos button, boots, says to recover BIOS, pressed F1 then it froze up. Restart nothing. Unplugged everything, took out the GPU, RAM, PSU Connectors, re-assembled everything then I get a CPU Fan error, press F1, then it freezes in the BIOS. The 2 radiator fans are working, the light on the pump is on, the fans slow down/ go faster when I press the button on the pump. This has been happening all night even when connecting my old Zalman fan back up. I have the molex connected to the psu & the other cable to the cpu fan header on the motherboard. Someone suggested that perhaps the H100 had a bad pump and fried my CPU. I really hope this is not the case

My PC specs are below CPU - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T @ stock 2.8Ghz Motherboard - ASUS Crosshair V Formula Memory - G.SKILL Sniper 16GB GPU - AMD Radeon HD 6990 HDD -Seagate Barracuda 1TB PSU - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 850W Case - COOLER MASTER Storm Sniper SGC-6000-KXN1-GP

Please contact with any info regarding this problem. Thank you.


So what do you guys think....

It is either a fried CPU, or a fried MoBo. My guess though is it IS the cpu. Im sorry bro.

do you get any beeps? Usually an F1 alarm before windows is cpu related. I get them all the time when zero'ing in on my OC's. lol

First of all is this the good lot of bad H100's that corsair replaced or is it the old bad one?

CHV for the most part will always have cpu fan error, retarded bios. Update the BIOS if you can. Look at the lights on the board itseld, anything red?

I don't have enough time to flash the BIOS. I don't want to risk it either and then it freezes midway. Off the top of my head I THINK the DRAM led was on.

No idea what your talking about. Never heard about this. How do I find out?

Ok, if the RAM has a RED LED, it may be the RAM, or the MoBo. Again, I believe its either the cpu or mobo that is fried, so honestly, the mobo & the cpu could be as well. i want to look at this thing so bad...lol, so i can see for myself how its acting.

Check corsair h100 serial number, a whole lot of them had come out defective and are being replaced by the company. Check with the site for more details.

Really? It would be just my luck to get a defective product lol. I'll check out the serial number and the website later. Thanks for this info.

Lol. Think I should try booting with 1 RAM stick in?

Okay folks, I am typing this post from my computer! :D 

I decided to just throw my old Zalman fan back in there and viola it's working! Guess this confirms that my H100 has a crap pump since the CPU was overheating.

Like to thank everyone for their help in solving this problem!

Send it back for replacement immediately. The company is aware of this problem. And they will replace it for a much better new version of the same H100...... it's worth the trouble.

#1 your cpu and main borad fine(more 70% of chance) because it build with temp protection on it.
#2 open RMA with Corsair and get new one ASAP.
#3 reinstall cooling fan.
#4 bios setting if you have option that 3pin and 4pin controll in option plz disable it. Because H100 cooling system have 3pin connector. If don't find it and there are no option for that~ good better~ because my Asus Crosshair V formula have that option in there. First time install and fan error come out.
#5 Corsair is good company with good RMA status please go head and get new h100. Because it has limited 5 year RMA.
go head and try it.
