No backplates are used on 2011-v3 socket. You install your 2011 socket screws directly on the threaded holes that are on the latch mechanism.

What you need is the narrow mounting plate on this particular motherboard.

No sorry. It's a PWM pump so it needs to be controlled on a PWM header.

It's sort of a "warranty" that a non-modified Predator can be used with zero-maintenance for 3 years since we did the work here prior to send it.

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.

Thank you for this information. Just tried adjusting the pump speed in mobo's BIOS and it looks like anytime the pump is spinning faster than 20% the oscillating sound appears. The faster it spins, the louder it gets.

I'll think about my options for a while. But it's good to know that the pump is replaceable with any DDC PWM unit. Now I just need to know which it the best and the quietest.

@SeoulFinn; is it possible the sound is coming from the Fury X (coil whine)?

Ok, I'll first try adding additional fans first before I start messing around with components.


Also has their been a delay in shipping out predators R 1.1 last week? I know RMA department is busy. They did say mine would be shipped out by Friday(01/22/16).

Hi there,


Coils make a different sound, so it's not that. The coil whine can be heard only when GPU is stressed. To make sure it wasn't that, I have already removed Fury and used iGPU. The sound came back.

I think I found a mention of a similar problem over here SPCR - Quiet Liquid Cooled Gaming PC Build Guide, page 3. SPCR used a different pump (Laing DDC-3.2), but I think this is what is going on.

At the end of the page he mentions that

"The cause of this screeching noise was identified. It is a resonance caused by the motor spinning in the empty water reservoir. Filling it with water completely eliminates the noise."

Empty? Err, the while loop can't be completely empty as my rig is not in fire already and all is working well temp wise. So maybe there is air bubble? When I have some time later this week I'll try to see what's the matter. Hey, I'd feel funny to send the whole unit to Slovenia just for this!

So I lowered my CPU over clock to 4.3 giga watts at 1.2 volts and got max temperature of 70 C on one of the cores during real bench. I think I will leave it here. Also got about 55 C on the video card which I am fine with. FPS loss is about 0.5 FPS average in Ass Creed lol.

I wanna thank you for all EKWB staff. All of them very kind people. They solve my problem very fast and professionally thumb.gif

Special thanks for Igor and Peter wink.gif

Just received my 360 unit and I'm very impressed with the quality! However I have a couple of small issues:

Firstly there was no included power or PWM cables. Has anyone else had this issue?

Secondly I have been told by a number of people that this would fit in the front of a cooler master master case 5. Any clues or photos as to how people got this in?

Thanks again

This is making me wonder if I have the same problem, is it this sort of noise you can hear

Is anyone running their pump independently? im curious to know how it sounds and how loud it is @ 100% or close
