I've got issues with my Corsair AIO H110 that I bought back in 2015 as well. The pump is giving very loud grinding noise, cpu temp is still ok at 39C range.
Googled a couple of potential solution like tilt the case by 45 deg in every directions and take out the radiator and give it some shaking but to no avail.
The time when the noise stopped was when the pump is not working. temp shoot up to 60C.
Still thinking of replacing the AIO with air cooling since my rig is reaching the end of life already.
5 yrs its abit long .. either the pump going to die (natural electrical death) or the water started to dry.. hence u hear the grinding noise..
personally, i still like the performance of AIO ; for the size and aesthetic...
the best air cool is Noctua but the problem is its HUGE size.. not many cases can fit
mine a bit different.. no noise, the pump speed is running full; and the AIO was less than 10 months...just the temp spike like hell.. thats why I opened a thread here..
since its no longer under warranty.. just standby to get a new cooler.. either air or AIO
