  1. Don't worry it's nothing the rpm Is a minor fluctuation bear in mind the pump isn't really revolving rpm, its drawing voltage which is then expressed as rpm. Don't bother watching the pump rpm just run it on full. How's your tempretures whilst gaming?
  2. Had same thing, the pumps broke, send it back
  3. you lucky ba**ard, Im unbelievably jealous. Quite right mohd noh, without overclock or prolonged use at medium to high usuage of cpu yes it would be fine, I said this as much in last post with the joke about using the stock cooler. Just dont try benchmarking the cpu, prime would probable melt the cpu. At 1,075 RPM the fans should not be overly loud. I really think beyond replacing fans or moving the existing fans around there is isnt a lot you can do. Also wheres your ram in those photos? Good Luck wassem, The neptun is not better because its newer/ more powerful, its all due to the thickness. larger rad = greater surface area :) my two year old 360mm rad is better then all three. Newer is not better! Regards PAK- the old git in the corner
  4. Glad im some help, i hated it at first too, but it doesnt really scare me any more. PC's are like lego nowerdays and alot more robust.
  5. wow explains the cpu would have been a £500 CPu matched with £100 GPU, If youre not planning on using the CPU to its full potential it dont really matter in terms of cooling :) stick the stock on lol. However these are the best in my view for cooling Corsair Hydro >>>> CM Neptun (wider Rad)> CM Seiden As for quieting, The larger the radiator the greater the surface area the more fans the less rpm for fans to work properly and so on therefore Corsair Hydro, You may want to try different fans from the stock as they are most likely for performance so you may get some much quieter ones. Other option is place radiator on the side away from you using a bracket attached to case bit of diy involved or generally move the pc where it bothers you less. Are you using a fan controller? Ps how did u get it half price and can you get me one,
  6. Sorry but this is going to be brutally honest. 120 isn't good enough for you're cpu u need a 240 min rad especially as a seidon is a small factor rad. 1000 rpm is not fast for a fan, seen ones that u can buy that go up to 5000. A 750ti is underpowered next to your cpu it's going to cause issues in bottlenecks for gaming and is going to be the loud thing in your rig as it's pushed to max. You carnt expect quiet with the components you have without large/multiple rad and full custom setup. Your being ridiculous speed some money on cooling properly if u want to keep that lovely cpu running. My thought ignore them if u choose

  8. sorry posted before i had finished Out of youre links i picked up these, Cooling option: Scythe GlideStream 120mm 2000RPM Fan 114.0 CFM 38.0 dBA quiet option: Be Quiet! Pure Wings 2 120mm Fan 51.4 CFM 19.2 dBA Changed my mind on the Antec TrueQuiet 120mm Fan 35.8CFM, 19.9dBA CFM is cubic feet per minute "therefore airflow" the higher the better but generally speaking the louder the fan. But to confuse you somewhat not all cfm is the same, Static pressure can play a role "it ability to push/pull through obstruction", however its difficult to know which ones are going to do well at this the easy way to tell is the wider the fan the better it deals with static pressure. Hope ive been some help
  9. Fitting look pretty standard to me, if it was me i would fashion a fixing out of some wire for a back fan and run push pull configuration, but thats me allways looking for a project and going over the top. This seem to have been convered quite a bit on forum see below for links: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2255247/hyper-212-evo-fan.html http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1669868/market-fan-212-evo.html http://www.overclock.net/t/1243376/best-120mm-fan-for-hyper-212-evo Cooling option:Scythe GlideStream 120mm 2000RPM Fan 114.0 CFM 38.0 dBAAntec TrueQuiet 120mm Fan 35.8CFM, 19.9dBA
  10. Cpu looks fine 80, and 90 for gpu, isn't bad for a laptop these things are designed to get this hot So wouldn't worry too much. The best investment u can make is a can of air to keep those fans clean. Providing the fans are kept clean its more likely to break by a accident then overheating. If you don't mind the extra noise had a friend who uses Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS, Titanium Laptop Cooler and swears by it, too small for your laptop but there are many more equally good.
  11. Not sure these pumps need to be regulated it would involve changing voltages in bios some motherboards carnt do this, they are not 4 pin connecters on the pump only 3, so not compatible with Pwr. Ive looked to see if I can change mine using speedfan to no avail. If you really want to control the pump you can get front panel fan controllers with a pump controller. Never used one always ran my pumps on max. As the noise of a pump is minimal noise compared to the extra fan speed to compensate for low flow.

    One fan on the motherboard I thought micro atx were stingy with two, A front fan control is you best bet then plugs into mains and fans connect into that.
  13. Thought id add this for any one else needing answers to this question as it was one of my concerns too. "The few times I have heard of them leaking, due to no actual fault of the user, Corsair has replaced everything that was damaged. I think if you search here you will find one or two stories of this happening. I have not heard of such stories from other companies. To the actual question, very low chance." Not my words from: http://www.overclock.net/t/1392291/what-are-the-chances-of-a-closed-loop-cooler-leaking-and-destroying-everything-in-your-computer/10
  14. hello, Interesting thoughts, carnt give the amps on pump as i dont know and carnt find on google. However to complicate things i would imagine they vary with the greatist draw being when they are first turned on e.g. cold start . Stupid question but why not just connect the pump to the power supply directly, this what custom watercoolers do, obviosly check with coller master representative first.
  15. Hi elliot, I now it pretty simple but have you tried checking the connector on pump ie all three pins visable, and pluging back in . Sometimes connection have a way of working loose.
  16. Couple of things to check if you havent already First of check that the tubing isnt touch anything as vibration may be causing it, Also that it isnt the gpu as these sometime give of high pitched sounds "had this happen before". Could be not enough power to cpu header unlikely assuming a power supply over 500 Watt. I have a Nepton 140XL cooler at the moment im trying to get to work and "when the pump does turn on :(" it makes a sound like what you describe but i wouldnt call it loud, Dont know alot about these kind of pumps but i dont think that you should be changing the voltage to the pump in the bios, with-out a bit of knowlege about the particular pump first. I would think it best to get a replacement but its up to you.
  17. well ,mabye not any use to you but im at the 6683 rpm mark, Not even sure it works properly.
  18. Hi Mark, Had a similar problems with custom watercooled build, what i did was buy long bolts same diameter and cut them down with a dremel to exact fit. Might be being stupid here but couldnt u just cut of the plastic mount and use a rubber washer.
  19. Hi jack, Is it the pump or the fans causing high pitched noise? Carnt find the fan spec on net but checked out the RPM on cooler blade master 92 which looks similar but mabye not the right size and thatll hit 2800 RPM, so the fan is pulling full, just reduce this down with speedfan or bios.
  20. jeff, quick google search and top result came up with this "http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cooler-Master-Hyper-212-120mm/dp/B0068OI7T8"At £25 The fan look to be me to a standard 120mm Fan, therefore you could buy any fan for it. As for recomendation i use scythe gentle typhoons and i love em, however they are rad fans so are generally wider so check it fits.
  21. hi, How have you got the fans/pump connected into motherboards? 400-500 fan speed is very low for any fan. Is heat building up whilst in bios? Also love the motherboard have the old X58 version.

    help

    hi, eithier alter youre bios seting to reduce the fan speed manual. Or install a fan controller such as "speed fan" which allow manual control or automatic based on tempretures,
  23. Hi, after spending a day tinkering and looking at forums to no avail i post this here for your consideration, Bought one of these for a build "Cooler Master Nepton 140XL 140*38mm Radiator 2 x 140 Jetflo FAN Liquid CPU Cooler" Build Specs: AMD Fx- 6300, ASRock 960GC-GS FX, Collermaster VS Series 550W Installed releatively easy, Came to boot was working fine for a while, installed Speedfan and notice temp hitting 60+ on cpu, not even under heavy load, practically idle, any way redid the cpu seating using new thermal paste, boot up and starts crashing as temp hit 70 the termal shut off on these cpu, Have disable any overclocking, quiet and cool anything else in bios i thought might help, Fans run load in push pull config, pipes are mainly cool to touch which is weird. The only thing i can think it is pump isnt working as its dead silent and the bios is reporting its speed as n/a. Any one got a view that can help, before i get a wise guy i have taken the plastic of the bottom of heat sink, i checked twice. Haha just notice my screw up with topic title so if any one knows how to edit that ill be much appreciated. Update, Well this is getting stupid, there a 50-50 chance that the system either boots and stays booted. Or a 50-50 chance the temp rise and the thermal cut out kicks in. Goner Replace with a air cooler i think. Not impressed with closed loop coolers they dont seem to have got any better over the space of a year since i last came to the conclusion they dont work. Any recomendation on a quiet air cooler out there?
