Mine was making the noise people seem to be paranoid about, I emailed XSPC (quick reply!) and they said to take a video to show the problem. To quote exactly what they told me,
"The pump is designed with 42 dba noise level.
Pls send me a video if you think it is wrong."
Looked it up and 42 didnt seem to quiet so I figured it was normal to get the fish tank noise. It doesnt bother me too much I just wanted to know if it was going to crap out on me soon. Otherwise this is a great kit! Im a total noob in watercooling and this was a cinch to set up, cut my temps in half even when OCed. I'll post a pic of my rig (more later when I get my clear side panel and more lights
