Help with my first WC loop

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all. This is my first time posting.

I have recently built my first custom water cooling loop and it performs very well. I have leak tested and bleed the system but the pump is still noise.

I have to admit I am disappointed so far. I had a hyper 212+ that was basically silent and was expecting water cooling to not only perform well but be silent.

The pump isn't very loud but it is audible, more so then I expected. I can hear it when I have head phones on and I cant live with it. I would rather just air cool again.

Pump is the latest xspc x2o 750 v4 acrylic version. I am also running a Magicool 180 RAD and an XSPC Rasa CPU block.

Uh, who'd you buy that from? The V4 was changed to not be acrylic anymore due to issues it was causing with a leak. The V4 is black injection molded plastic.

Looks like this and only this

You got an older version of it.

Most of your entry level pumps are loud, prolly one of the top reasons people like to use the D5 with variable speed control to turn it down and kick it up when benching or full flow is needed. I have the MCP 35X which is a PWM pump and its quiet per my use. Check what is the minimum starting voltage for your pump, and try giving it 7V instead of the 12V. That might help you as on normal use you do not need a pump running at full power.

regardless what power it's getting, with it running full blast it should be near silent. I have mine hooked directly to the PSU and can't even hear it unless you stick your ear against it. He'd be better off getting it replaced just in case the pump is bad.

When researching the pump it seems like it should be silent or very close to it.

As a lot of people have mentioned their pumps are silent.


The noise reminds me of a fish tank.

Yep, shoot them an email

http://www.xs-pc.com/contactus/contact-support/

unless you just recently bought it you could shoot an email to your retailer.

Just be super nice about it and no be pushy so they're more inclined to work with you.
