Windows 7: Corsair H60 buzzing.

Corsair H60 buzzing.

My corsair H60's pump has recently started to buzz (its about 3 years old), but if you touch it, it stops, its almost like the case is vibrating. I remember this was a known issue when they first came out, but cant remember if it was a cause for concern back then.

Temps are still fine, im getting min of 21c and max of 48c under torture testing, recovery time is still less than 10 seconds, so im guessing its not a lack of coolant/dying pump.

It might be a case of ive only just noticed it since moving to my corsair air 540 case which is silent, as my nzxt phantom was so loud you couldnt hear anything other than fans...

I have an H80. I don't have any buzzing but I did have problems with the noisy OEM fans. I replaced the fans with "silent" fans and no more problems.

Check the mountings both at the pump and the fan/radiator connections to make sure everything is tight.

You have probably got some air in the system after three years of running. There are several good youtube vids on opening these for maintance. You need some distilled h2o, biocide and anti corrosion additives.

Buzzing lag and BSOD
Occasionally, but a lot more recently, I've had an issue with my computer lagging a bit. It wouldn't freeze up, but it would do sort of a half-a-second pause where the audio playing would buzz and then it would go back to normal. It would do it periodically whenever I was playing a game, watching a...

Sound is buzzing?
When I change the volume using f6-f8 (which on my laptop are volumeMute, volumeDown, and volumeUp), I sometimes get this strange buzz like sound while the volume is clicking up. It will just be counting up and then go --buzz---. If I'm watching a movie or listening to music, it interrupts the music...
