XSPC V4 pump/res making too much noise

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've looked on the forum for any doubles as I have seen a few threads regarding XSPC 750 pump/res systems on different websites.

After 4 or so days of running my XSPC 750 AX360 kit with still no luck in removing bubbles in the res, radiator (if there is any) and hundreds of tiny 0.05mm bubbles circulating through the tubes. I have left the lid off for a full night and left it on for a full night and day while the PC with WC loop on, shook it side to side, shook it upside-down causing BSOD with no noticeable results. Some say adding dish-washing liquid will dissolve bubbles but I'm not to sure the risk is worth it with distilled water.

Contacted XSPC and uploaded my video (Can view here as well) and now waiting for a reply.

How long have you had the loop installed? - Bubbles will gently bleed themselves over time (if that's the issue)

If you've had the loop for a long time, it could be that the pump is on its way out - the noise sounds almost like a grinding noise

I do hear a clunking/grinding noise and I only installed this system on Thursday (7 days ago). With no bubbles in the res but very tiny bubbles in the tubes and some larger ones stuck in the rad, tipping it upside-down, shaking to side to side still no luck. But the grinding sound worries me more than the bubbles.

Sent an e-mail with my invoice to RMA the damn thing.

I never had to do anything special with mine for it to run quietly and smoothly. I took a good day of straight pumping before 99% of the bubbles were gone. It made a bit of noise the first 10 seconds I ever turned it on. it has been quiet ever since. If it were me I'd open up the reservoir and inspect everything. Heck I'd even crack open the pump and see what's up. It's not all that complicated. Here is some info:
