post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
I've got my pump for about half a year now, but recently im working in quiet and i've noticed my pump is making noise same as here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqJcVy41qTY

Is this normal for a ddc pump?

What DDC do you have?

DDC-1T's do have a rather loud buzzing noise.

It's some second hand laing pump with sanyo 18W electronics. What pump should I look for if I want it as quiet as it can be?

It sounds as though something is hitting the impeller. I'd normally dismantle and check inside but if it's still under warranty then get in touch with the supplier for a possible RMA.

Make sure something in the res isn't touching the impeller so look for signs of that and I also remembered this thread

Found some interesting things in my res - thanks @Big Elf thumb.gif

I cut this out and now it's bit more quiet (grinding sound is gone) but still buzzing enough to make me go ape****. I guess i have to deal with it or get a better case/pump.

A PWM-capable DDC. EK, Dazmode, and Swiftech sell them. That way you can control the speed of the pump w/ your motherboard and software.

If you are handy w/ a soldering iron you could also try ordering a DIYINHK PWM PCB for the DDC3. I haven't tried it yet myself but I do have a PCB on order to see how well it does.

They do buzz a lot unless you full decouple them, a Shoggy Sandwich can make a big difference.

Looks like EK QC has dropped a bit.

Edit: I agree with lowfat, a PWM controlled pump will be a lot quieter most of the time.
