So I tilted my system and put it upright again and seems pump noise has reduced. Also fans are whining less. So I don't know anymore lol. Tomorrow I pick up new fans for push pull since I am not happy with temps being 60C on both CPU and GPU with 4.3 GHz over clock.

Gave the system a shake (in case of air bubbles) and also released a little stress on the tubing at the suggestion of some people over at Hardforum... Not sure which one did it, but within 30 seconds or so there was the swooshing sound of water and then silence. Temps dropped almost immediately by a couple degrees and have gone back to what I was used to.

Did you check your water level?
Sounds like it's low

I opened the side panel and I hear absolutely no sound coming from the pump and I can feel no vibration. I restarted the computer a couple times with my hand on the pump to see if I can feel anything and nada. Any ideas on how I can test the pump without having to take my entire system apart. again. to reach the pump/fan headers?
Same happened to me, even without installing it, just testing it before being installed, I have returned the predator 240 v 1.1 they are testing it right now.

Fairly positive the coolant level is fine as that's the very first time I've ever heard any noise from the liquid in this unit whatsoever (the noise coming from the leaking unit I RMAd was pretty distinctive once the coolant level dropped a bit).

Honestly... I think I probably overestimated the bend I could achieve with the EK ZMT and that caused an issue.

Nice thank you, is there an accompanying article for these graphs?

Yes, but I can't link it here due to to OCN rules. Google image search might help though!

Edit: Nevermind, it doesn't help at all.

I just noticed my EK Pred 360 r1.1 does not come with the 6mm wrench for the fill ports... do the new revisions not come with the fill port wrench thingies?
post #3880 of 6952
I don't think they ever came with it. I had to borrow one from the accessories for the EK Coolstream XE radiator.
