Installed the new Ek predator 1.1 without washers and turns out, this unit is bad. There seems to be something wrong with the pump. It is making a strange sound:

I didn't have a jumper so i had to bleed my loop while it was installed in my case. It would have been a lot easier if i could have bled it out side of my case. It was still pretty easy, just took some patience!! tongue.gif

Can anyone who did push/pull on the Predator 360 report temps before and after? I am wondering if it is worth spending the monies. I would welcome anything that is 5C or higher in terms of temp reduction.

I had similar oscillating noise driving me bonkers, but from your video I'm not sure your's is caused by the pump. Mine certainly was, and it was a lot louder too, but reinstalling the pump, shaking the whole unit like a maniac for a long while and adding some water helped. After reinstalling the unit I went to BIOS and run the fans and pump at 100% for awhile. After some lovely "cement mixer" noise the air bubbles were forced to the reservoir and the pump became whisper quiet. I also noticed that I had/have some "white floaters" in the water, so I hope EK will properly rinse their AIOs in the future!

After my pump became silent, I noticed that the Vardar fans were making annoying noises as well. I replaced them with Corsair SP120 Quiet Editions and I can finally say that I'm happy.

If I were you I'd just unplug the Vardars and see if the noise is still there. Good luck and keep us posted!

Good to know. I will pick up some fans then.
