Dwood Modded GTX 670 - Antec 620 Noise

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if I should RMA my 620 or if it's making noise due to the fact that its mounted upside down? This is my second 620 and both have made the same noise. I'm thinking about trying the magnet trick but I'm not sure if that could be bad for the pump. I've put my computer on its side before and I'm pretty sure the pump stopped making noise but as soon as I put it back to normal the noise comes back :/

Could someone shed some light on what may be going on here and what I should do?

Had the same issue with my 620, and unfortunately, nothing would fix the noise. Apparently it's normal doh.gif Couldn't stand it and sent it back.
