Please help my pump is so loud!!!!

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 
Hi I just finished putting the tubing in my first water cooling loop and I filled it up. When I turned the pump on it was so loud, it sounded like it didn't have any water going to it but it is right under my reservoir and my reservoir is full, my reservoir is xspc photon 270... It almost looks like my loop is clogged. It goes to a certain spot and than completely stops.
My pump sounds like this persons at 2:05

you have an airblock and air in the pump - shut it down and take care of the air trap!! you can damage your pump running like that.

Open the fill port on your res to let pressure equalize, rock your case back and forth, side to side, even roll upside down if you can. You need to get that air bubble to move.

I tried to rock my case like crazy some air did come out but when I tried the pump again it was still same issue. Whenever I try the pump I do not leave it on for more than 1 second, as soon as I hear the noise I turn it off. The fill port on my reservoir was open from the beginning. I will keep rocking it and wait for a response smile.gif.

Thanks for the reply.

How can I get air out of the pump? Do I need to take my loop apart?
post #7 of 60
no - taking the loop apart will only introduce more air.

IF you can, unmount your pump and tip it around a bit just by itself. Do you have a full tube of fluid heading TO the pump? or mostly air like in that vid?

another lil trick is on the outlet side of the pump, pinch the tubing open n closed. Creates a pressure then vacuum and can help the bubble to dislodge. Have you checked to make sure you have the pump connected the right way? Outlet to outlet and not outlet to res? I know... but have to ask...

My reservoir is almost full and the tube of the pump is full to but I mounted my pump with velcrow to cut vibration and to be able to move it around so I will try to tip it around...

Thanks.
