I need some help with my new build. I have a Sabertooth 990fx R2.0 MB with a AMD FX 8350 processor (not Overclocked at all) - 600 watt corsair PSU & my CPU cooler is the Thermaltake Water2.0 Performer. There is a loud & extremely annoying high pitched noise that seems to be coming from the radiator fans that came with the water cooler; however, the noise could also be coming from the water pump - it's hard to pinpoint.
When I put the fans on silent operation the high pitched noise is still there & almost as loud as when the fans are on turbo.
Should I try to replace the fans? What else could be the problem?
Also, I'm thinking about taking the pump off the cpu & applying better thermal compound because my cpu idle temps are 35C with ambient room temps at 22C - do you think that my idle temp is normal for this processor?
Thank you guys - I'm new at building & really the only thing that I'm having problems with is that annoying noise -I'm a musician & I record with this rig so I need it to be as quite as possible.
