[Official] XSPC Rasa 750 RS/RX120/240/360 Kit Club - Page 445

post #4441 of 13773
@ mbudden. Would it be a good idea to post something on the front page about the pump issue? It seems quite a few people are coming in asking questions that have already been answered about the pump noise. Since we know it is an issue, and XSPC as well, we're not spreading nasty rumours or anything. I personally read through all the pages up to this point to gain all the knowledge I know have about the kit and water cooling in general, but I don't think the average board member will.

The problem is, the bad pump issue is a hit or miss issue.
Some people are experiencing problems. But some people aren't.
You also have to take in account that the specs of the pump are up to 45dBs, anything after that. Then it is taken into consideration for replacement.

You have to also take into an account that the people who're buying this kit are new to WC'ing and there for don't really know how to properly get rid of bubbles etc. Some of these issues might be causes by user error, and not by XSPC themselves.

I am fortunate enough to have a good pump, I know there have been some users in the past that have had bad pumps. I would much rather people post in here that they are having a pump issue so we can help troubleshoot them, rather than them go storm off to XSPC on a whim. I'd rather this thread be the last resort before having them go to XSPC with their issue. Some people have had the issue of noisy pumps but only to be fixed by the users in here, whither it be bubbles in the loop or case vibration.

I think people who post pump issues need to clearly state that they've properly bled the air out of the system (invert/rotate/shake the radiator a few times), that they've tried running the pump freefloating (outside of the case), that they never ran the pump with the water level below the top of the pump and all else fails, post a video - along side something of known volume, like a cellphone ringtone.

Else, I'm going to go with user error. Certainly doesn't help that XSPC doesn't really include any instructions beyond mounting the CPU block.

Do you need more instructions then ?

I mean, bolting a rad and putting the tubing on isn't that hard is it ?


Also vibrations can make it loud, i remember when i had it out of my system to flush my rad & cpu block it made noise when it was just laying on the table.

The problem is, you really don't need instructions on how to put the kit together.
Once it's in front of you, I mean. It's pretty straight forward. You can't really mess it up. The problem is, people don't know how to troubleshoot the problems they are having. That's what this thread is for.

all i know is my pump was louder than my 94cfm fans at first 2 drops of dish soap and i turned it on its side let it sitfor a couple min then turned it on its other side
its dead silent now and this was outside the case
14 hours later there isnt a single bubble in it
im very happy with this kit

So my RS240 kit is going to be turned into a gpu kit and paired with a RX240 and the cpu will be cooled by a RX360! got all the radiators and the second res/pump today. Will take LOTS of pictures.
