Cooler Master Seidon 120v Ver.2 Pump Noise

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've recently purchased and installed a Seidon 120V Ver.2 cooler, however the pump block seems to be making a loud whirring noise. I would guess it is the impeller rotating.

 

See the following vid:

 

 

 

 

 

Motherboard: AsRock H81M-HDS

1x 4-pin CPU_FAN - radiator fan connected here

1x 4-pin CHA_FAN - front case intake fan 

1x 3-pin PWR_FAN - pump

 

 

I have tried the pump on a molex connection and it makes the same noise.

In BIOS, the pump RPM is roughly 2300.

This is also reflected in the AsRock System Information:

Can anyone advise whether this is normal operation or should I seek a replacement cooler?

 

Thanks

The noises aren't bubbles. I know the pipes make those noises in some systems but not this one.

It's been running for a few days now but there's no improvement.

I've asked for a replacement so shall see how that one sounds.

I shall update this when I have it

Thanks, I saw this one before.

I had tried those BIOS settings already and the pump made the same noise when it wasn't screwed down either, so it wasn't because it was too tight.

 

My package has been picked up and will be replaced soon

Update: The replacement Seidon 120v came today

 

I have installed it and it is much quieter than the previous one, thankfully!

 

There's a lot of dripping sounds coming from inside but I'm guessing that will ease after a few days of use.
