I know the sounds my pump makes when it is about to run dry / bubbles gets to it.
and all bubbles was out of the system at this point.
The funny thing is, It ran 100% quiet as normal while I was gaming BF4 for a few hours.. a few sec after I quit the game, the noise appeared.. I first thought the noise came from the GPU, but quickly determined that it came from the pump underneath it and powered down the system.
I powered it back up shortly to see if it would just flow through and get stuck in a less moving part of my loop
Im 99% sure that something, probably a piece of "saw dust" from the acrylic tubing, has traveled to the pump..
Just... It would have to travel from my system (probably CPU block) -> 120 rad->basement->1080 rad->res-> over the res divider->pump
I guess that is a possibility, but im having a hard time imagining it.
The heat must have played a factor as well, since it came shortly after going from load to idle.
Sadly my pump is mounted in a way that makes it a pita to do any maintenance to it.. thats why I didnt change the pump housing (witch I also ordered with the acrylic etc)
Now that I HAVE to get in there, im gonna change it too
So I guess something good is gonna come out of it.. unless the pump is damaged.
All in all, the only one to blame is myself, for not cleaning the system good enough.
I only opened the CPU block.. it was so clean that I didnt bother to take anything else out, and the GPU block was new so no need for cleaning there..
Tomorrow im gonna go buy 5 liters of distilled water(4 dollars) and take EVERYTHING apart for a good cleaning..
I should have enough dye for atleast 2 more full flushes (I hope) or I will have to go ocean blue till I get some more :/
