Watercooling giving me a high pitch alarm sound when temp increase to 60c

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi watercooling expert, i am having a weird problem with my brand new Aquacomputer Aquastream ultimate

https://www.techbay.no/product.html/aqua…?category_id=75


My setup is :

i7 5930k EK waterblock installed
2x 980ti EK waterblock installed
Aquacomputer aquainlet pro 150ml
2x 240 radiators 60mm
Using also Aqua computer liquide, green

Motherboard: MSI LGA 2011-v3 X99 Gaming 7

Please see attachment for pc setup, this picture was taking when i was trying to get all
the bubbles out, its fully assembled now.




At idle the tempratures are :

CPU: 42 c turbo boost enabled ,without turbo boost enable temps are 39c
GPU: 34 c
Motherboard temp : 39 c

My fans are running at 50% speed at 1100 rpm


When i benchmark the CPU and GPU, then temprature rise to 59-62 after 1 hour and stays there
no matter how long i bencmark it.

The problem is when temprature reach 60-62 there is a loud high pitch alarm, that does off, the only way to get the alarm to turn of is to
increase my fan speed to full blast and lower temprature below 60c From what i can tell this alarm is coming from my pump.

The entire idea with the watercooling was to get a quite pc, and i cant have my fans running at 1800rpm because its loud like an airplane.
And when i check the pump spesifications, it says water temprature 0-50c, does that mean this pump cant handle temps higher then that ? ? ?

What am i doing wrong, or is there a place in the pump menue i can increase temprature limit ??

Just a side note,

I have the pump running at 4000 rpm, getting 52liters pr hour, when setting it to max rpm of 5000 i only got 56 liters pr hour.
So i used 4000 rpm, because there was alot less noice at that speed

The pump has no fans or sensors or usb connected to it, its running standalone at fixed 4000rpm

My problem is the damn alarm going off when tempratures incraese to 60 c

Any help would be appritiated

With kind regards

Btw, i honestly dont mind my CPU being at 62 at full load
and the GPU at 60 at full load...my main aim is to have a quite pc.

So i just want to get rid of the darn alarm, and not sure what it could be smile.gif

Have you considered looking at the manual and configuring your alarms?

Thanks for the advice, i have now had a look at the tempratures and it looks like the pump was set to sound alarm if the water temprature went higher then 50c
I also asked around in the aquacomputer forums and everyone is telling me that water temp of 50c is a disaster and that its a no no

Will a water temprature at 55 c be a disaster for my pc ?
I mean the pump and the pipes should be able to handle it, the pipe is extremly tick and the pump should not melt at 50c


I am not overclocking the pc or anything, so should i be worried or should i just get a larger radiator and increase fan speeds.
The entire purpose wast to lower the noice

So to boil it down, my cpu and gpus max out at 60c and does not get any hotter nomatter how hard i push em.
The water in the loop gets to 50-53 celsius maximum at full load over time, but will this damage any parts in the loop ?

Thanks again

Update;

Manged to lower the water temp from 54c down to 47c when at full on both GPU's and CPU

Now the front radiator is pushing air out, and the top radiator is pushing air out, that gave me an improvement of
7c


Now i just need to wait for my new fans, that i can run at higher RMP with lower noice levels and
also add a extra fan to bring in fresh air into the case. With the higher RPM and extra fresh air i should
be able to keep it down to 39-40


The ambiaent temprature in my room is 29c, so its pretty hot

Thanks again

Your higher ambient temperature isn't helping but there isn't much you can do about it.

Are you only seeing these higher water temps with benchmarks?
If its only benchmarks then I wouldn't worry about it.

If your temperatures are ok during normal use and it's quiet then I would be happy with it.

How do you do if you leave the sides off your case?
There may still be some improvements to make as 20degrees delta is still on the high side.

Yeah the water temps get high only when i am benchmarking the pc, when using it normaly its pretty cool.

I will try your suggestion and see if leaving the side panel open helps, and if it does..then i should try to
get some larger fans mounted to the sides at low rmp to push some fresh in there.


Any suggestion on how i can get rid of of all the damn air bubbles in my gpu blocks ?
I been shacking the case for hours and let it run at different pump speeds standing and laying down, but those bubbles are near impossible to
get rid of.

I heard someone say take a few drops of dish soap, but that sounds like a bad idea...foam comes to mind !!
