**HELP** XS-PC D5 Vario Pump Noise

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to check with some of the experts in the forum. I recently installed my first WC system. I am running the raystorm EX360 with D5 dual bay res/pump combo. I noticed a loud churning sound when conducting my leak test. After shaking and or tilting the noise would reduce, but after a minute or so of running the noise returned. I decided to leave it running overnight and while I was at work, after 16 hours the churning noise was still occuring. When I returned from work I decided to check the pump and see if there was a block. I noticed a small black plastic piece, looks like a reducer, that was loose between the top and the pump itself.

After removing this piece, the system is running nearly silent (I'm not running fans at the moment as I am still leak testing). Is this a necessary piece? Has anyone ran into this situation before? From what I can tell the pump is still pushing water through the system. I am about to do a complete power up? Any advice would be great.

Heya,

I've got the same pump setup as you, it does make a bit of noise when it's got air bubbles in the pump. You do literally need to rotate the machine side to side to move the bubbles.

With mine when the noise starts I usually need to tilt the case directly backwards or to the left to get it to disappear. Make sure you're filling the loop up completely as well, each time air bubbles move to the reservoir the water level should drop. I have to fill my reservoir at least 3 times each time I drain my loop before it's ready to run for a while leak testing.

Got it all hooked up and running, I might need to reapply thermal paste since my temps are pretty high. I was hitting 70+ on 100% prime 95, these are 15-20 degrees lower compared to a hyper 212.

Running an Intel xeon w3520 at 4.2 at 1.3 volts.

Yea does sound a bit high, Just make sure you secure it reasonably tight. I get about 60c on load at 1.440 so you aren't too far off smile.gif

Goodjob on getting it all up and running!
