I'll tell you one thing... it's the only QUIET alternative. Anybody can have a great cooling setup, even with air, but only watercooled setups are also very quiet. Any fan above 45 dB would drive me...

I think your best bet would be to return your motherboard and get a decent one like a DFI, ASUS, or Abit. You might be able to remove the plastic bracket on your eVGA board, but it may also be glued...

Try running distilled white vinegar. After all, it is an acid. Personally, I wouldn't recommend running hydrochloric or other strong acids through the system. The pump's plastic casing could corrode,...

In that case, I don't think I'll worry about it. If the "normal" RPM is 3668, I'm still within +/- 10%. As long as the pump works and my temps are fine, I don't think it's anything to worry about.

Well I think if it was air bubles, wouldn't the pump spin *faster* when it encounters an air bubble?

Anyway, I will try to run it with nothing else plugged into the 12V rail and see if that makes...

PeteB, what is the typical range of readings you get 30 mins after you start your computer? When I first start the system from a cold boot, my readings are constant between 3516 and 3668. Then, after...

Pump Question

When I first got the Corsair kit, my pump consistently showed 3668/3750 on the tach reading. Today, I looked at the readings and the pump ranges all the way from 3250 to 3750. My CPU temps have also...

Jon, your temps look awesome. Your idle-to-load delta is only 5*C. What are your ambient temps? My temps are 33 idle, 44 load running S&M FPU test, and ambient temps are 25-26.

Tried removing the heatspreader? I wouldn't advise it if the CPU is still under warranty but it's worth a shot... apparently waterblocks work better when there's direct contact between the die and...

This may sound obvious, but have you checked for kinking in the tubes? Flow restrictions will cause your temps to go up a lot. Also, check the waterblock outlet tube for coolant temperature. If it...

Basically try a shorter path to the pump. The more hose you have going to the pump, the more restricted the flow is. Make your pump's inlet as close as possible to your reservoir. See if that helps.

I'm really too impatient to wait on a new reservoir AND a new fan. I think I'll try the lubrication technique to see if it improves things. If not, I can live with it. The noise is not much louder...
