In need of quite fast advice,

I got an antec kuhler 620 for a client build (never used one of these wc things before, only custom loops) and it's making a loud noise (like an electric shaver).

Basically I plugged it into a 3 pin socket on the mobo, and selected 'full on' in the bios, so I assume that is giving it 12v. It shows an rpm of 1400 in the bios.

I've made 100% sure it's not air trapped inside, i shook the hell out of the rad and pump serveral times, tried different orientations and the electric shave noise is still there. The only way i can reduce the noise to an acceptable level is if i use the bios to reduce the pump speed to around 700rpm.

Two questions,

1) Is this normal for this unit? I'm really suprised at how loud the pump is, that electric shaver noise can be heard from 3 metres away easily.

2) at 700rpm, does the pump move enough water to not significantly affect cooling performance?

Thanks for advice.

You moved it around and shook it up for air pocket elimination and it's still making noise, then I suspect the pump is lunch. :-(

I've applied for a refund on it. In the mean-time i've ordered this one (arriving tomorow). Generally when I get one bad product i'm wary of it being a bad batch so i'm happier to try another product.



Seidon 120XL. It's pretty new so not many reviews, if any. Fingers crossed I don't get another lemon.

Which is the same product as the 620, just branded CM, instead of Antec smile.gif

So I have finally modified my Antec 1200 case to fit in the 920 at the top exhaust. I also somehow managed to drop my idle temps by another degree yay gooo side panel fan smile.gif.

I just picked up a 620 for my 1100t and i got 2 different temperature readings from my CPU????

Idle temperature

which one is the real temperature:confuseds

I'm sure they'll suffice.

If the pump is the same as the 620 then ok, will know in two hours or so how it runs. Tuns out its not the same pump, coolermaster made their own pump for this not 3rd party.

No that's not normal, and no 700rpm is not enough for the Kuhler to be efficient.

It's the CPU core temps on the lower part of the picture. AMD has never accurately given idle temps. It's based on an algorithm that is only accurate at higher or load temps.

Oh yeah, and your radiator is upside down. There is a mini res where those pipes feed into the radiator and if it is up higher than the pump it can pick up air bubbles. This could potentially make your cooling worse and quite possible damage the pump.

Pump speed should always be at 3k- fan speed however can go down to 600RPM
