Corsair AIO = A Fridge

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I decided to go AIO liquid cooling as long time last decade I got a custom loop thermaltake.  Long story short it ended up spirting liquid and it went all over my components.  I don't want the custom route after that.  So I grab a Corsair AIO in my signature.

 

First off the pump sounds like a fridge.  Secondly the fans it comes with are soo loud and makes a weird sound, a total POS.  As you can see in my sig all my fans are Noctua now and its soo much better you barely hear them.  Still the pump is loud as heck.  I RMAed got a brand new one from Corsair and same thing its just too loud.  I turn off every fan on my rig including video card fans and you can hear the pump noise with a  little buzz in it.  Even with all my fans spinning the pump noise is obvious.  I got liquid cooling hoping for less noise and got the opposite.  Do all AIO sound like this.  I remember my Thermaltake pump made zero noise ,,, u just heard water trickle which is sorta cool not bothersome.

Welcome to AIO's.

That is sorta what I said to myself.  My old old thermaltake custom loop system had a nice big pump that made zero noise,, you put your ear to it and hear nothing. 

 

So if I get a 400 dollar custom water cooling with a nice big pump my problems should be gone according to my thermaltake experience.  Im just scared its going to leak.. So Im torn on what to do.

I don't.

Every time I put a list together I give them air cooling because it's quieter, easier to maintain, and there's less risk of leakage or pump failure- while performing just as fine

OH no kidding.  But the fans on the HSF can get loud no ?  Or can I make them spin at 700rpm and still achieve maximum overclock ?
