I have been noticing a clicking sound as of late from the GPU area, basically when the water temperature is completely saturated and under load. Oddly enough I was convinced it was GPU coil whine however I will inspect further tonight.

@zaj159: For sure this is coil whine. Like I said on an earlier occasion, these vary from horrible to virtually inaudible. YMMV. Mine squeals like a pig until it warms up :)

If I have to hear this XC7 click one more time, I think I might just rip it out of my computer. I exchanged the first one with the retailer and the second does the same thing. I've change the fittings and am no longer using an extension. Just two Bitspower hardline, no difference.

Just for info, new build here since a few days.
I have the same "clicks" with soft tubing.
I was thinking about ventilator (plastic) in contact with radiator (metal) ...then i saw this post ;-)

It's very light for me and also sure i can hear it because ventilators are slow and there is no noise. In a normal system (not watercooled) i'm pretty sure I cannot hear this kind of click.

I haven't try to identify the root cause because it's not too disturbing but now i will folllow this thread.

Interesting that you have it with soft tubing as well. Good to know that it's not related to the hardline fittings or acrylic tubing.

This noise is 100% coming from the Hydro X XC7 CPU block during expansion/contraction. Do you have any suggestions for us, Corsair?

I have also noticed a pump noise around 2700-3000 rpm, a king of whining noise.
Did someone have the same?

Why is that ever since Corsair requested a video of the issue, they're no longer replying to this thread? I need some help. The thermal expansion of the XC7 causes clicking and popping noises from the plastic trim.

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to throw my hat into the ring as well. I notice the same click on my CPU xc7 block as well. Nothing nearly as frequent or annoying as the OP and it happens randomly where a single click can be heard. I also think it has something to do with the material expanding/contracting.

The one thing I didn't notice on the thread (unless I missed it) was the thermal paste. I used the preapplied paste on this one against my better judgement. I wonder if the heat is causing the block to "scrape" (not the best word) against the hardened thermal material. Im going to take the block off and clean it and apply a fresh compound to see if that has any effect in the next day or two and will report back.

I have a feeling it wont make a difference, but at least it's something to try and eliminate as a reason if anything.

Interesting thought about the block scraping. I also have the pre-applied thermal paste on mine. Please let us know the results after you change out the thermal paste.

I believe this to be a design defect. Corsair isn't saying or doing anything about it. I have a support ticket opened and they haven't even replied to it once. The XC7 is warranted for three years so this should be fun.
