Honestly, is that youtube video of yours? if so, um, mine MAY make that noise when I 1st put power to it, but I've NEVER ran mine without the rest of the system running, so I wouldn't hear a miniscule noise like that. Once again, I'll point to the teardown of these Pumps on the 1st post. THEY ARE FISH TANK FILTER STYLE PUMPS, Never seen a fish tank that was COMPLETELY quiet.
Do yourself a favor, hook your system up, all fans and everything, and then post a video of if you can hear the darn thing over your fans. If not, then your OVERREACTING. If you just want your money back, tell Antec that, quit spending money just to knit pick every slight noise.
If you followed the little guide I posted a couple pages back, then as little as that noise is, it will go away in about 2 days. The liquid lubricates it.
You got me wrong Bud, First
of all look at your post, Its LONGER!! Mine only looks
longer because I gave some links to a small number of people who are having same issues. Actually Go Click those links and see what others have to say...Second
this is my Third yes 3rd
Kuhler that has failed on me. 3 units in a row that had same or similar problems, the first two had grinding noises and this one has a lower frequency rattling noise.Third
, I also know how they sound, very quite, and I also know how they look inside, I did a tear down on my friends one. They have a SLIGHT hum if you get within a few inches close, but that cant be heard once the case is closed.
Now, Please do me and yourself a favor, take a couple of minutes of your time, show some decency and try to pay attention to actually read what a guy writes before jumping and blaming him of OVERREACTING.
I know how these units sound dude, I have tried all the methods I found on this thread and online. Nothing helped! The Sound is Similar when your glass windows start shaking when a Concord lands near your house or if you turn the bass up too high. They Grind and the noise can be heard two feet away over all my case fans!Edited by TheBirdman74 - 6/6/12 at 3:34am
