The mounting mechanism has changed between the R1.0 and the R1.1 the new one is our PreciseMount like you get on our Supremacy EVO blocks.

also whats the life expectancy of the pump when running it at full speed.
and IF it does fail, is it a replaceable part?
The only possible way to do this is by not connecting everything on the hub of the Predator. So for example you keep the fans on the hub but connect your pump directly on the motherboard on another PWM header.
@Alpina, the pump is replaceable with any DDC PWM pump.

With my luck, the new unit would have made even louder noise. Anyway, then I learned about this AIO and after waiting a bit, now I have the 1.1 version in my possession. As you may guess, my expectations were rather high. Finally no more annoying whining!
IMHO the price was bit too high, but since the delivery was fast and the installation easy, I was pretty happy with my purchase. Fury X's idling and load temps are a lot lower that they used to be. CPU is almost the same and has never been a problem. All well so far.
But when stressing the GPU or CPU (or both) and the temp rises enough and the pump starts to spin faster, the unit starts to make this annoying oscillating whining sound.
It's not the sound of water flowing. It's not coming from the fans, either, as I stopped all of them one by one to make sure it's not any of them. So, it must be the pump/pump's bearings. I most definitely do NOT want to send the unit to Slovenia (bought it online) to be replaced.
Since the pump used is "Laing DDC3.1 6W", can I buy one and replace it myself? There are other pumps such as DDC3.2 and so on with higher wattage. Can I use one of them? Can any of you gurus or EK people recommend me a pump replacement that can be used with this AIO? Money is not an issue, but pump making any extra whining oscillating noises is.tl:dr
Predator 360 (1.1) pump whining under stress. Can you recommend me a replacement pump? The same or one of the better Laings? Which? Hjälp!
The pump is replaceable with any other DDC PWM Pump....but if you prefer you can open a ticket on our support page since this sound isn't normal at all.

Can we swap out the CPU block?
Also Would the 240 version support an additional 240 radiator? How much of a temp drop should I expect (For now just a i7 5960x processor, No GPU)
Finally Would I still have to flush out the AIO every year. Or would just be like any other AIO and remain maintenance free once everything it tightly sealed?
Yes you can use some splitters on the hub unit.
The purpose of the Predators is the possible expandability so yest you can swap the CPU block with another one.
Yes you can add a second 240 if you want....on the temps amelioration, that I don't know....probably 2-3 degrees I don't know.
Once you swap of add components that aren't on QDC's, the Predator becomes custom and need maintenance cycle of a custom loop so yes once a year.

Yesterday it worked OK, but this morning when I turn on the PC fans are set to maximum and the computer froze.
In BIOS -> CPU: 79º
I changed connectors CPU FAN and power supply but still not working. Fans set to maximum but not cool....
Please help. I worry that my CPU has been damaged.
P.S.: Sorry by my english

I have contacted the support of EK. I hope it is resolved soon because I don't want to be another week without a PC
Have you tried to run the pump directly on the motherboard instead of using the Predator hub?
