Seidon 120v

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been using a CM Seidon 120v for a while now. I replaced the stock fan with a NF-F12 in pull as an exhaust and have two intake fans, all three are running at really low rpm so my rig is silent. Except for one thing, the pump on these is really loud. I turned down the pump rpm to roughly 900rpm and its now silent and temps are still good. I have a g3258 4Ghz @ 1.2v (20C idle and 65C load. Tops out around 45C gaming.)

So my question is, am I on a fast track to killing my pump? After some googling I found mixed answers some saying the pump will now last longer, some saying it will kill it.

I can't see it dying as your running it slower then it's intended speed which will reduce wear and tear on it. I'd say don't worry about it.

I am always monitoring temps anyway no matter what I do and Im happy because the only audible thing in my case is an old HDD which I hear spin from time to time smile.gif
