Reservoir at times Sounds like Running Faucet

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a XSPC Dual Bay Reservoir which holds a D5 pump. Problem is at times it sounds like a faucet was turned on. I don't know if they are air bubbles being released but my loop has been running for 2 to 3 weeks now and I still hear these sounds at times.

I don't know if its a coincidence or not but I find it happening sometimes when I click on something that heats a component up in my loop whether it be a benchmark app or folding. :laugher

Here's my loop,



Also for water cooling, I know ambients play a huge role, but what would you guys say is a normal/good temp. My cpus/gpus are usually 10c above ambients.

Im guessing that the impellar area is getting air traped in it, switch it off and see if you can see any air in there, if there is you need to run to pump of an externall psu so that you can start and stop it fairly quickly, if you can get the res/case angled right then the air bubble should be able to flow out.
