I have just built a new gaming PC (my first) and i am having a bit of trouble with my AIO cooler. I would love a bit of advice.
I have been a long time reader and find some of the best advice i have read comes from here... hence my joining up to seek advice.
4650K Processor ...... overclocked to 4.4Ghz
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H MoBo
16G of 1600 MHz Corsair Vengeance Pro RAM
2 x EVGA GTX 770 SC graphics cards
Corsair 860i Power Supply
Silverstone Tundra TD02 CPU Cooler
With the pump plugged into the CPU OPT point on the MoBo it makes a rattling noise as it ramps up and down with CPU Temp. I have since learnt that the pump needs to me run at 100% all the time.
I read that the OPT output should be set to run at 100% but in the BIOS, it only gives me the option to set the FAN/OPT outputs combined, not separately. This makes the fans run at 100% all the time which is louder than desired when just surfing the net. The pump however runs perfectly like this.
The Silverstone Tundra TD02 CPU Cooler i have has the 2 x 3 pin PWM fans run into a single 4 pin header connected to the CPU FAN header.
I'm after advice as to what is the best way to run the pump.
Is there something i am missing in the BIOS, or do i need a separate power adapter direct from my power supply to run it full stick all the time?
