My Loop is Making a Funny Noise

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently finished putting together a water cooling loop and it keeps making a sound like it is squirting water periodically (though frequently). I have emptied the loop once and both times I've refilled it this sound comes back and it is beginning to annoy me quite a bit. None of my fittings are loose and the water level in my reservoir has remained constant since the loop became full. Please help!

Thank you in advance.




The most concerning noise happens right at the 40 second mark.

My loop was making the same noise early on.

I'm fairly sure it's because you still have some air in the loop.
Most likely trapped in/around the pump impeller.

I don't think it's anything to worry about but if it's bugging you try bleeding your loop more by tilting the case around and playing with the pump speed. That stopped it for me.

I see air stuck in the tubing coming from the right side of the CPU block. Lightly pinch the tubing there for a sec and the air will get out.

Edit: may just be the video quality, definitely sounds like air getting loose though

Yep, in that video there are actually two locations the noise was coming from, and the one around the CPU has finally stopped smile.gif. Thank you.

It's been over two weeks and the noise won't stop frown.gif. Tipping the case makes the noise occur, but I'm ready to say that my loop is completely bled of air. My reservoir isn't completely full, would it make a difference if I filled it up more? It's about 75% full right now.
