Yeah I already sent out an email to my RMA rep, maybe sounded angrier then I really am. And yeah shipping was fast, I dropped off my recall unit to FedEx on Wednesday got the predator today. Hope I can get the cables quick, so I can get back to doing stuff.

Does it really matter?, 2x 140mm fans are still sucking air in and predator is exhausting them?.

Tried in steps how it affects to noise, and so far i have set the unit running 40% (around 1050rpm), and PC is now virtually silent. Grinding/Bearing noise starts to come after 1200rpm or so, im starting to think its not the pump, it might be the fans. Usually im not sensitive to loud noises, but that was annoying.

According to HWmonitor my setup idles now around 28-30 and max load in Aida64 extreme is below 70c when testing around 15 minutes, more than happy with the results! smile.gif

Noticed the same after about 40% the grinding of the fans get pretty loud. Temps are ok with 40% but I also have a Fury X connected to the loop with QDC. Not sure if vrms etc are also cooled properly or set the fan curve more aggresive and deal with the noise.

I'm running mine at 20% (30C) at idle and it will ramp up to about 60% (50C) at full load. My 980 Ti hits a max of 60C, but it's probably because it's a ASUS Poseidon. It's doesn't exactly have the best performing water block. 20% dutycycle seems to be the lowest it can perform at.

Edit: I use ASUS QFAN via BIOS. This is the reason I will never buy anything else than an ASUS motherboard.

Akira, another question. What happens when you put 2 Predator 360's and a 240mm reservoir in a loop? like would those 2 pumps counteract each other?

The pump can handle it.

@Alpina, like someone else said, if you respect the flow direction when you hook 2 Predators together, both pumps will work correctly.

Since it's a PWM pump, you will need a PWM source to test your pump. So the CPU_FAN header of your motherboard will do unless your have a PWM fan controller.

You're fine to not use a rear fan here. thumb.gif

Ehy guys

Plese could anyone with a 4770K and TitanX under a single 360 loop report on the average temperatures detected with Realtemp possibly?

I'm noticing pretty high temps currently with CPU averaging at 70°C and ofc with the GPU also at 70°C . (with fans at 30%)

This seems rather high especially compared even to the previous REV 1.0 unit that I had, pump is also noisy and I don't know if it's a hint of something being wrong.
With REV 1.0 I usually hovered around 58°..

Ok cool. i figured... so what direction exactly is this flow? i cant find it on the site or in the manual..

@akira749

My returned Predator 240 R1.0 had been stuck at Clearance Event for a week now. Can you help to check on it?

DHL called me yesterday and said they cannot get in touch with anyone over at EKWB, hence the delay.

I reckon I will not get my refund if the shipment is not delivered?
Had also informed the RMA support but no reply also.

Thanks.

Can the pump speed be controlled separately from the fan speed?

30% is that at full load? If yes you probably need to go over 50%, but you might also have air in your system hence the noise from the pump (depends on the type of noise)

Yes, but you'll need a PWM extender and attach the pump directly to CPU_FAN. Then you attach the EK fan hub to a chassis/system fan connector. Do check your manual though, because even if it has 4 pins on the motherboard it's far from certain the fourth pin actually does anything at all.
