There are two ports on the CPU block, the one that is closer to the middle of the block is the "in" and the one closer to the edge of the block is "out" If you follow the the line "out" you should hit the reservoir before the pump. If you follow the "in" line, you should hit the pump before the res. It kind of looks like the "in" dumps directly into the top of the res, but the res top obfuscates the line because you took a photo from below, so its hard to tell...

Nice looking rig, very clean.
Based on that info the left port with the tube going over top is the "in". I believe it dumps into the bottom of the pump but I will pull the panels off tomorrow and trace the tubing to be sure.

Thanks for the compliment I specced the parts and design and Maingear executed it exactly as I wanted and the wait was certainly worth it.

@JourneymanMike I didn't build the system so how would I check that? I'll try and get some better pictures tomorrow.

Cheers guys this system is a bit overwhelming in regard to maintenance but certainly been performing great so far smile.gif

You should be able to tilt/ rotate your case in a way that will get the bubble close to the out port!

Basically all you do is go under the sticker on the back pull the cap, use an oiling syringe to fill the well(the space where the cap fits) and then put both the cap and the sticker back in place. Down time is ~1hr. RMA'ing that many fans you're down for at least a week. wink.gif

What oil do I need to use and do 22 gauge needles work or is the oil too thick to push through it?

Edit: Still use this? http://www.overclock.net/t/1557364/do-you-oil-lubrciate-your-fans/20_20#post_23982806

I oil my fans when they appear to be sticking during normal operation speed. I use 3n1 oil and it works just fine. Dust is almost always the cause of a dead or dying fan so wiping sleeved bearings before applying lubrication is a good way to go. thumb.gif

Pretty sure Vardars are ball type bearings. I don't use a needle when I oil either but you can get gun oiling kits that have a reasonable size oiling syringe included. I can't specify which size to get because I don't know from gauges of needles. But 3n1 is a reasonably thin oil so it should go through a fairly small gauge needle if you already have one on hand. Sewing machine oil is also good cause you can get a small bottle that has a needle with it. smile.gif

OK here it is:

http://vocaroo.com/i/s1TXwxKVYMpi

At 5 seconds I go from 20% to 25% and at 11 seconds in I go from 25% to 30%. May need to turn the volume up to hear the squealing/squeaking.

Hello together.

Today I received my EK-FB ASUS M8I monoblock and was a kind of disapointed as the packaging was already unsealed (seems like the distributor sold me a return block). Nevertheless I was thinking ok, if the block is in good condition, doen't matter it was unsealed. But after removing the protecting sticker for the contact surface with CPU I discovered an isuue. The surface has a lot of small scratches, something you normally do not see from EK products (I also have EK-FB ASUS M6I monoblock and its surface is mirroring smooth). Therefore I would like to know if this surface (see the pics below) is normal?

All I hear is a slight increase in volume (due to the higher speed of the fans I imagine), but no change in noise pitch or tone. Is that recording exactly how it is for you?

I can hear it on that recording very well but I have a headphone amp that can blast the hell out of volume. You don't hear the noise at 5s and 11s?

Edit: It's 5s to 11s for 25% and 30% past 11s.

Yeah I can hear that extra tone now. Might be worth opening them up to see if the bearings are completely sealed or if there's some lube seepage going on.

Are those pwm fans? and if yes what's the max rpm of them?


I had same similar weird noise issue for Noctua industrials. See the linked videos below (you have to turn volume to max)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


EDIT: in the end it was confirmed that'S the normal behavior due to their new motor with 6 poles and PWM.
