If it's hooked up to the motherboard it is possible that the BIOS is controlling the pump speed (based on CPU temp) and this slowing it down when system is idle. If that is the case you can modify this setting through BIOS or your motherboard software. Tilt the case just under 45 degrees on either side while the system is running - it's possible an air bubble is stuck somewhere also. Saw it happen a few times on my h100 after I moved the system around, had a bubble stuck in the pump. I heard it go up the hose when I tilted the case towards me.

Pump speed Max is 2600-2800RPM on that unit.

thank you, Scorpion667, it didn't occur to me that i might have an air bubble in the pump. Will try to "burp" it :P

If you can't get it you can tap it with a rubber mallet (LIGHTLY LOL) or the back end of a screw driver (make sure it's rubber grip lol). Just tap the pump from each side, emphasizing the word lightly

I found an ancient Asus board to test water cooler on without being afraid to fry my new build:

 

 

 

 

 

 

so i shook it a little in case there were bubbles, not sure if it did anything

 

the pump is really quiet, when i unplug the fans it's almost silent, i hear the motor just a little. It's possible that it works quarter-speed because the processor is just sitting there, but shouldn't it work full-speed when USB is unplugged?

Also, how cold should be the copper plate when cooler is working. It just s little colder than room's temperature.

The copper plate would be ever so slightly above room temperature due to the pump's heat. I've never used the Thermaltake Water 2.0 AIO before but does the pump plug in to the motherboard with a 3 or 4 pin fan header? If so, check if your bios shows you a fan speed for the port it's plugged in to.
