Hi what fans are you using is it another two 2200rpm vardars?

Installing my replacement Predator 360 right now. Can't get the bottom left mounting bolt to screw into the backplate. Seems like the hole is bigger than the other 3. What the hell EK. I'm pretty annoyed.

Anyone else experiencing a cold boot issue with the Rev 1.1 Predator Pump? I tried all possible bios settings and connecting it to other fan headers but no luck.

What do you mean cold boot issue? Like not coming on?

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!

Thanks for the info. I took everything apart as in everything that had a screw I tightened it, shook it around a couple times, I reinstalled the fans as well (i had orignally done this since I wanted the fans to push in air based on the orientation I have it in my case), put it back and the sound is gone. I did notice that the only two holes in the top fan were stripped so changing orientation did help.

Now just need some plastic washers!

Good to hear that... er... not to hear that noise anymore. Good job!

Originally I had the radiator on the top of my Fractal Design S fans pushing air out. When I replaced Vardars with Corsairs, I reinstalled the radiator it in the front position. I also flipped the fans to suck air in and push it through the rad into the case as I wanted to use the case's air filter. Hey, I didn't want dust to fill the case and radiator. Oh, no!

The "hot air" is now being pushed out by two silent Noctuas at back top and top back positions. Idle temps are good and so are the load temps.

What do you mean by "it's all wet"? It leaked in the package?

You screw the additional fans on the radiator shroud with some M4 screws that you will have to provide.

You mean the plastic washers that goes on the 4 screw posts? Yes they need to be there and it's a real bummer that you didn't got them frown.gif

Unless you are on 2011 socket since in this situation, the washers aren't needed.

The screw hole on the backplate is too big?

The units have been sent. We shipped them to the main warehouse of MC and they do re-distribute to the local MC's so it should be there soon.

Thanks for the info. I put metal washers, but computer failed to boot. Then I had improvise by cutting the hard drive rubber mounts in half. They fit OK, but guess that will do in the meantime. I sent a message to Ek Support and they answered this morning asking for an address to where they can ship some plastic washers.

Yes. Only that particular screw hole is too big. I've tried using any of the other 3 mounting bolts and only that particular hole is too big.

I've double checked by removing the mounting plate from behind the motherboard and trying to test fit the bolts into it directly as well - same problem, that particular hole is indeed larger than the rest.

Getting OK temps with 3 bolts but definitely not a long term solution - especially not after paying those few hundred dollars for the kit.
