I have purchased this liquid cooler this month in February. At first when I have turned it on it did not do this but after a couple of days past, I'm hear gurgling / bubble sounds coming out from the CPU pump. I read some forums online this could be due to air coming through, however I am unsure if this is fixable or or entirely faulty at all. And if I should request an exchange if this is a faulty product. I would appreciate if you could advise me on this technical problem. I have provided you a YouTube link to the video I recorded the sound. Please put your Audio to relatively high so you can hear it. Video Link: https://youtu.be/P9DYX1xnMa8 Hope to hear from you soon. Many Thanks, Kind Regards.
Coolant leaks can be extremely expensive and time consuming if not identified early. I didn't notice mine (Seidon 240M) until it had leaked on to my motherboard, GPU's, and power supply. Most of my hardware is black, therefore it was not readily apparent (even with the large viewing window on my Thermaltake Level 10 GT case). The best and least expensive fix I could recommend is including thin attachable sleeves that could be placed anywhere on the cooling tubes that are absorbent and change color when whetted by coolant. The other option would be a style of drip tray that is absorbent (not something that collects the coolant as this would be bad when turning the case on its side if the customer hadn't noticed the coolant collecting) and also changes color when whetted. The latter might restrict airflow and be cumbersome to attach depending on space allowance therefore I would recommend the former. I have read many times (my case included) that leaks mainly occur either on the tube fittings or the tubes themselves. This would allow the customer to place the attachable sleeves or drip tray at the lowest point in the system and give them an early, and readily apparent, warning sign to avoid further damage to there components. If you read this and agree or have found another inexpensive solution please post below.
