Anyone else here have pump whine at 100% speed?

I recently found out that I had it at around 95-100% speed, and its definitely very loud. Muted with the case panels on and everything, but still distinct.

I'm not sure if that's something that will go away with time, or is a defect. FWIW though, I don't get any kind of pump whine below 90%, and I currently have it sitting at 80% max and 25% min.

Not sure if it was whine, but I was definetly not pleased with high pump speeds regarding noise. I was testing the pump noise in 5% steps and have it set to sth like 35% in idle and 60% under load.
Higher pumps speeds only have minor impacts on the temperatures, so it is good for me wink.gif

6xNF-F12 is what I am using as well on my Predator, but 1000rpm are imho not super quiet anymore. But below 800rpm is excelent wink.gif

Thanks
Is the vibration noise constant? I think I'm getting something like this, but the sound isn't constant. Every 20-25 seconds, there's a sound that I think is the pump vibrating against the metal bracket it's mounted on. Only showed up recently though, so I'm not really sure if it's normal or not.

Its funny, there's a distinct "whirr/whoosh" sound from the pump anywhere from 30-70%, at which it isn't loud, but is just a distinctive sound. 70-80 is where I find the pump actually becomes very quiet, enough so that I would run it full time at that speed if my current room wasn't as quiet as it is.

But no, that whine at 100% is distinctly like coil whine, sharp and piercing. Its not that big of an issue as I have my pump curve maxed at 80%, but since I have it hooked up separately I do hear it upon post time. Its not enough that I would like to RMA it, but its something that I was wondering about other people perhaps experiencing.

As a side note, I was thinking of replacing the fans on the Predator. Those new ML Pro series from Corsair that was at Computex is mighty intriguing. But, since I already have 2 NF-F12s, (standard edition), I might just go for another and use that instead.

Yea mine is definitely vibration from the case and not the pump. The noise pulsates and is intermittent as the fans ramp up and down. I just ordered a rubber 360 mm radiator gasket from Performance PC for $2.95 that I will attach to the top of fans and then mount against the case. Not sure if it's normal or not but for me it could be that the (metal) mounting frame on top of the case is pretty thin. Just hope the gasket works because the noise is very annoying.

Bit of a long shot, but does anyone know where I can get some similar looking black clasps that sit before the QDCs on the predator? I'm building some of my own tubes with QDCs and for uniformity would like some of those clasps.
Cheers!

Might want to double check that this is the correct size to fit, but something like this is what you are looking for.
