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.

Hi, Im having the same problem with my materliquid 240, a loud noise from air in the pump, im going to try running it for a couple days and hope it goes away. Very annoying when you get a liquid cooler to be quite. Temp on my 8600k are 22 at idle. sounds like the audio i attached.

Thanks for your time and the reply, I am having the exact same problem 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've had mine running for 2 days now and its gotten much better, if after a week its not fully gone ill be applying for an RMA or warranty. I have my radiator mounted vertically at the front so the air will collect there once its been purged from the pump.

Hi Cian, sorry for the slow reply. I RMA'd mine and amazon sent me another out the next day without me even returning the product yet - I reckon it was a faulty batch. New one is much better.
