post #3691 of 21262
So my EK DDC 3.2 PWM Xres 100 pump/res combo was being very noisy. Whilst trying to RMA EK told me that it is normal for DDC pump to be noisy and that air is probably causing the noise. So with EK basically telling me everything is normal I decided to do the troubleshooting myself. I found out that the clearance between the pump and the pump is 1mm too shallow so the propeller grinds against the pump top which is what is causing it to be noisy.

Instead of waiting another 2-3 weeks for RMA I just put a layer of 1mm thick flat rubber between the O-ring and the pump which fixed the issue. Been leak testing my solution all night now and it seems fine so I will install it into my case soon.

I think the pump top has been overtightened at the EK factory causing the acetal of the pump top to slightly dent inside giving the pump that itty bit of extra clearance causing it to grind against the top. That, or they used an O-ring which is too thin.

Glad you got it sorted, but having seen your video of the pump, it seemed obvious that it wasn't air causing the ticking sound.
