The title says all. I'm building a full loop inside the RVZ01 using the pump/block assembly from the Corsair H55 on both the CPU and GPU and maintaining the OEM Asetek looks thumb.gif

  • Samsung 850 EVO 120GB
  • Seagate Momentus XT 500GB
  • Sharkoon SilentStorm SFX-L Gold 500W
  • Silverstone RVZ01

Cooling:
  • Corsair H55 pump x2
  • NZXT Kraken G10
  • Alphacool NexXxos ST30 240mm
  • Swiftech MCRES Micro Rev2 Reservoir
  • Alphacool 90 angle fittings
  • Bitspower 1/4ID x 3/8OD Compression Fittings
  • Bitspower 3/8ID x 1/2OD Compression Fittings
  • EK AF FillPort G1/4
  • Gigabyte GBT Splitter Clamps
  • Cooler Master XtraFlo Slim 120mm PWM
  • Noctua Industrial PPC NF-F12 2000 PWM
  • Noctua Industrial PPC NF-A14 2000 PWM

  • ABBOTT 1/4ID x 3/8OD Norprene Tubing
  • Swiftech 3/8ID x 1/2OD Neoprene Tubing

Modding:
  1. Ventilation hole on the PSU bracket
  2. 140mm custom Intake vent
  3. 240mm custom Intake vent
  4. Power/HDD LED color change
  5. Chassis cable Sleeving/Blackout

As I totally forgot to buy flux and the silver solder for block I'm making, i decided put it on hold until both arrive.

In the meanwhile I decided to epoxy the coils in both H55 pumps I have and try reducing or eliminate the annoying coil whine.



The coil are laid bare inside the housing, causing the wires to vibrate, and making the coil whine these pumps have.


Nothing some 2-part epoxy could not take care of.


It's not a uniform coating by far, but it takes care of the problem (2 layers of epoxy just to be sure).

I did a very fast test, and the coil whine is gone from both pumps. The noise now reminds me of the DDC I had last year thumb.gif

Hi did you finish the build? I am planning to make a build again on the rvz01, this time with a custom waterloop, I was looking to use a small pump/reservoir unit like the xspc ion.
