Another Faulty Antec Kuhler Pump (With Video) - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Between your issue and Nocturin, I am pretty sure I am done with Antec products.

Scary!

I just received my Antec 620 and it's doing the same noise, so basically, it's a faulty unit? It's not supposed to do that kind of noise, right?

There is a noise for the first few seconds or mins that sounds like gurgling, which is normal for any pump, shaking the rad usually fixes all noise, but if it continues after hours similar to the grinding and rattling noise in my video then yes you are another Kuhler Victim.

It sounds like an electric shaver. Do we have to pay for the shipping fees for RMA?

Hi,

I'm posting this because I had been having similar issues with my pump. After many days of trying everything to make the rattling disappear, I tried the magnet trick which finally worked.

However, I wasn't happy with having a magnet stuck on the front of my cooler. Eventually I unmounted the unit, and spent a good 20 minutes shaking the unit (both pump and rad) to release the air trapped inside the pump unit. When doing this, it's important to ensure the radiator is well above the pump unit, the radiator pipes are exiting the rad from the underside, and to turn the pump while shaking to allow the air to escape (the trapped air rises up through the pipes and rad).

It's now thankfully running silent. I hope this saves someone the hassle I've been through trying to resolve this.

Cheers.

For normal operation of the pumps, is it normal to hear water flowing if I put my ear next to the pump?
