Hey guys, I have recently just put together my new system and have had it for about 2 weeks. It's been running great, and I can't be happy enough. However, my CPU cooler Cooler Master Seidon 120V, has started to make this clicking sound. It's not to loud, and does it every few minutes. I have monitored the temps and it's still cooling my CPU well, around 22c. I'm using an FX-8320 at 3.5Ghz, the reason I'm coming to the forums is because is this something I should be worried about, or are they liquid coolers just noisy?

Thanks!

If its the pump thats clicking, it could be a bad sign that its going to fail... may be clogged or something.
If its a fan, it may just be dirty, try taking the fans off and spraying them out

Sorry to hear that your Seidon 120V is making noise.
If it is your pump as arges86 mentions, I would advice to send it back for RMA. It could be some air trapped in the pump.
You can also go back to the store where you bought it (if not online) and see what they can do for you because you still have warranty.

Any questions, please do ask!

Hey, I had a similar issue with my Corsair H80i and apparently the clicking is a bearing issue and affects approx 2% of their stock apparently. I sent mine back to amazon for a replacement and the next one has been workig perfect for over two months now. Im pretty sure that the kit is provided by asetek for all antec/corsair/cm water cooling kits so should be the same faults?!

Anyway, I am building a computer for a friend using the coolermaster 120V and there is a high pitched whine that comes from the pump. It takes running the fan provided up to 75% just to drown out the noise of the pump. Since the guy I am building this for suffers from tinitus, I cannot imagine him being happy with it. I assume that the pump unit should be literally silent?! My corsair one is as good as silent. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Hi mockingbeard. Unfortunate to hear that you have problems with it. I suggest you send it in for RMA through this form: http://support.coolermaster.com/anonymous_requests/new. We will make sure you will receive one from the new batch if it falls within the warranty.

Hope this will help. Otherwise let me know.

Hi Guys,

Solution found! When I fitted this unit, I plugged the pump into the CPU power and the fan into the chassis power. I decided to swap these around and now the motherboard software is actually letting me control speeds now. Therefore the pump speed is now variable with a minimum of 40%, with a linear profile from 40 degrees up to 60 degrees running the pump at 40% to 80% respectively. Likewise, the radiator fan is also variable now running at a minimum of 20% ranging up to 100% between the temperatures of 30 degrees to 60 degrees respectively.

All completely silent and delighted!

I have this cooler and it's great. cooler master even sent me 8 long black bolts, nice guys. I have heard a lot of people complaining about noisy pumps but when they plug it into a continuous 12 volt header like power fan the noise ceases. If you plug it into chassis fan or CPU fan you have to set the power to 100% in your bios. The radiator fan you want to have variable speeds, the pump you want to run full time. cheers hope that helps some folks
