TickleOnTheTum Posted December 1, 2010 Share Posted December 1, 2010 My H70 worked like a dream, apart from one thing. Whenever I first put the PC on the pump made a loud rattling sound. The sound is similar to if you were to say have a wire catching on the fins of a spinning fan, or as if you put a lolly stick in the spokes of your bike... Remember them days? Yet, even the slightest little touch of the case let alone the pump itself and the noise went away for the rest of the day. I checked for all the obvious things like loose fittings, etc. Even when making the noise the H70 cooled extremely well so it did not affecting performance. The noise got louder and louder getting worse so I arranged for a replacement with Amazon.co.uk. This is now fitted and is silent as can be, however, I'm not getting such good temperatures with it as with the old one. On average it is running about 5°C to 10°C hotter. At idle this is not a problem but under full load it can be the difference between 72°C and 82°C!!! Is there something I might have done to cause this? Or that I can do to improve it? For example I have the radiator mounted so that the pipes are at the bottom, would it make any difference to rotate it 180° so that they are at the top?
