My new water loop is making lots of noise

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I just installed this. Along with a cpu block, and 3 mobo heatsink blocks.

Started filling the water. No leaks. Eventually I got the reso pretty full without it draining, and now it's pumping full blast through the tubes.

2 problems though.

1.The pump is LOUD. I've been bleeding it for over an hour and it's still VERY loud. It's making this loud whirring sound constantly. I can't even hear the fans over it.

2.My temps are not much better than my old hyper 212. I'm getting 38 idle and 64 on prime95. Overclocked to 4.1ghz.

well as for the pump noise i really dont know you will have to contact Koolance on that piece, maybe even get an RMA. I have PC2 an older water cooling system, which is essentially your Exos built into a server case, that is 8 years old and its running quiet and strong :/ maybe your pump or pumps are faulty.

UPDATE

I kept filling the reso and letting it bled. Finally it stopped making noise. Thank god! It's quiet now.

Also, my temps seem to be lower now. I'm still getting 38 at idle but my prime95 blend max temp is in the high 50's.

Still, not stellar but better than before.
