So for a long time I have been using a Corsair H50 with UltraKaze3000 fans.

I upgraded with a Corsair 500R case, and bought the Water 2.0 extreme to mount in the top of the case.

Temps are awesome, but at load I have been having weird noise issues.

First I had 2x SP120 fans pushing, and the stock fans pulling. Was getting lots of vibration noise going through the radiator and case. Added rubber washers between the stock fans on top and the radiator, not much change.

I swapped the stock fans to pushing from inside the case, and put the SP120's on top. The vibration noise is now gone. HOWEVER.....

Once the fans ramp up, I get a weird noise that was not present before. It does not feel like a vibe noise, as I have felt all the fans and there is no real reverberation.

I think it might be the air pumping though the radiator. Are there any tricks to quieting that down?

Thanks!
