Well. It is mounted like this:

322

And this is how my case looks like:

So the radiator is mounted where the rear fan is.

When i built the PC i laid it down on the floor. Ran it for 30 sec and put it straight again.

The pump is connected to the motherboard CPU fan header. And the 2 Antec fans are connected to the pump.

This is what Antec software shows:

402

How the heck does it determine the db level? lol

Anyhow... the humming is louder than the fans?

I dunno how it detects db. Its maybe something built in into the pump.
I'm not sure if the pump is louder than the fans. I cant determine well.

I made a recording of the noise:

Detects db by power apply it, rough estimate in better terms...

has anybody tested mounting this block a little bit off center for ivy bridge?

If you look at the cpu block orientation, it doesn't line up with the barbs. most of us mount the block with the tubes coming out of the block either straight down, up or on the sides.

300


But the actual cold plate makes the best contact with ivy bridge (the chip is thin and long) when the tubes are a bit off-center.

Probably my next PC will have air cooler instead so i don't end up with noisy water cooler.

Have you tried the trick whit putting a magnet on the pump?

I did on the first pump. On this one i haven't. I'm not sure if the magnet trick can harm the pump.

This picture is fine if the "Custom" "Fan Control" has not been set. It comes from Antec defaulted to run:

Fan Ramp Sart Temp: 40C

Full Fan Speed Temp: 50C

 

If you don't modify that for custom, the fans will not come on.

 

you are getting a little fluctuation in your pump speed, try plugging the Pump plug into a Power Fan header on your motherboard, (ignore the no CPU fan warnings)
