So do you have a link to install guide online for 2011 socket?


What level of expansion do you plan for these? Can The aio predator be turned into a full custom loop on the future?

So I'm getting desperate to figure out a vibration issue I'm having with mine.

Could anyone here let me know.. when you start your machines, take note of the pump loudness. Once you boot into Windows, do you notice that the pump gets louder?

In my case my system starts up quietly enough.. but once I get to windows and start to work on anything, it sounds like the pump spins up and vibrates to the point where it causes an audible hum.. its enough of a vibration that I even feel it in my desk (my case sits atop my desk behind my display)

Currently I have the 2 prong temperature header off of the chip on the cooler going to a fan header extension cable which plugs into the CPU Fan header on my mobo.. I also tried to disconnect the pump header from the default header on the predator IC and connect it to a fan controller to see if I could control it that way, but it was very eratic when I tried.. would spin up and down.. freaked me out and I put it back.

a lot of fan controllers are voltage controlled.. which is bad for pwm devices... unless its a pwm fan controller or hub i would advise against trying that...

I figured as much..

Edit: I just went ahead and disconnected the fans and am using an alternative fan controller and plugged the pump into the mobo fan header. Problem appears to be solved for me now.

Sounds like your bios isn't controlling the unit properly. If it starts quiet then gets louder maybe check your fan curve in the bios? How are your Temps? Is the cpu getting warmer than it should and raising the rpm?

I'm just spit balling here. My 240 is running @ 50% at idle and it's pretty quiet with no vibration that I can hear.

I'd think it'd be the opposite. Like starting loud (100%) and slowing down when booted.

Have we determined if the p240 will fit anywhere in a corsair air 240?

Highly doubt it. Even if it did it would most likely create issues with the motherboard.

Finally, the tool to collect all the community info is ready. Existing Predator customers will be able to enter information in which cases they can fit the unit. Currently there is still not a lot of entries in there so please allow us some time to fill it further with our info from different sources. By end of the week the entries should increase as we will add already discussed Cases from OCN thread (with permission of the users) to get things started. Also, if a certain Case Model is confirmed and we know that another Model is bigger than that one EKWB team will also confirm compatibility upwards (without photos of installed unit).

Link:

Example of already existing confirmed Fit:



You can contribute to the list using this link (all inputs are manually reviewed before shown on the actual list):
