How to reduce pump vibrations to case?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Basically what the title says. My MCP355 makes a humming noise that is normal, but my case amplifies it to a high pitch whining that gets irritating after a while. What could i use on the base of the pump to quieten it? Preferably a cheap/free way of doing this.

I cut up an old mouse mat and place the pieces between the pump and the case.

Wow... THAT IS GENIUS! How did you mount the pump to the case/pad though?

Most likely a high quality double-sided tape ( 3M ) or velcro with an adhesive back. Both work very well ! thumb.gif

Very tight tubing runs and limited space

I don't have the mats in the pics and the pumps are little out of line but you get the idea.

I've found that small cuts of tubing work fairly good with dampening noise. I only use one piece mounted using double sided tape and that stopped the vibrating for me. If you have any spare tubing, try it.

Could hit up a hardware store and get some weather stripping if you wanted. Usually adhesive on one side and they come in varying thicknesses and densities.

I don't get it. It looks like you have the two inlets on your pumps connected instead of outlet to inlet. Could be the photo, I hope so.

If you are talking about my loops, they are completely separate loops.
Loop 1: res>pump>240mm rad> CPU block>res
Loop 2: res>pump?360mm rad>GPU block>res

Neither pump is connected to the other.
