Weird sound

Recommended Posts

I installed new MasterLiquid 240 a few days ago in my new Ryzen 1600 build. Temps have been good. Actually surprisingly good at 25C - 35C idle and never above 55C at load. However  right after installing it I started hearing a spraying sound  from the AIO. Like water was dripping somewhere or beeing sprayed. I have had CM AIOs before and never heard anything like this. The sound however, is only noticeable during the first hour or so and disappears afterwards. Id you click the link you can hear a file i uploaded of the sound. I just recorded this from outside the case by putting the my phone's mic to the top exhaust. As you can hear the sound is actually pretty loud, alot louder than my fans.

 

The thing is that this afternoon I turned my PC on and checked temps, and they were already at 40C to low 50s in idle..Could there be anything wrong this my AIO? Pumps is running at 100% all the time

Hey,

I have the same exact thing with the exact same cooler. I have the radiator front mounted and I can hear the water dripping into the radiator.
It started after about 10 hours runnning the system over a course of 2 days. My Idle temps stay around 30C on a new Intel 8700.

Should I RMA it?

Having the same issue with my masterliquid 240, loud noise from the pump because there is air stuck in it. will run it for a few days straight and see. Very annoying after getting a AIO to be quite. Audio Attached of the Noise.

I have just installed the Cooler Master MasterLiquid 120 to my Phanteks P400S and upon the first boot I could hear gurgling and water trickling so immediately worried and shut my PC down. Upon research it seems other AIO users have had similar problems however I want a definite answer. Is this okay or do I need to return my product and get another? When I rebooted my computer I have had the same problem. I stress tested my CPU and FPU for 45 minutes with AIDA64 and 15 minutes with CPU-Z and Cinebench. Temperatures didn't go above 50 degrees celcius at 3.8ghz with voltages not going above 1.325V. This seems good to me however should I be expecting more for my money? I am using a Ryzen 5 1600 and a Gigabyte AB350 Gaming 3 motherboard. Should I be concerned about leaks as I don't have another £450 to replace my GTX 1080 if it does.

I am having the exact same problem as Cian and the sound being made is identical - I too had good temps but still it doesn't seem right. I have removed mine from my system and have reattached the included Wraith Spire cooler with my R5 1600. I am going to try and send it back to amazon, where I purchased it from, as it doesn't seem right that it should be making this noise. I will let you know how it goes.

I returned mine and got a new one hassle free - new one works perfectly
