Help - Computer Noise

13 minutes ago, SometimesStuff said:

Not to hand, I could probably get a cheap Intel one to test against, it didn't make this noise when it was new, but that was a long time ago! I didn't think about checking that, so I shall look into it! Would it be worth getting a new AIO if that is the cause? That is something within my range of replacing :P

Depending on when you got it you may be covered by warranty, otherwise yeah a new cooler would be needed. Air coolers wouldn't break down like this so if you do verify that you've got a pump issue, a high quality air cooler would be a good investment instead.

Hi,

 

My computer is making a noise, but I can't work out what it is, I have powered it on with no fans, and with the GPU disconnected, so neither of these seem to be the issue, but it sounds like the noise of a fan to me. I am using a Corsair AIO for CPU coolings, something like this but without the LED, my system is so old, RGB wasn't even cool.

CPU - Intel Core i5 4670K
Motheboard - ASUS Z87-K
GPU - GTX 980 TI

I have uploaded some wonderful phone quality recording, I'm kind of stuck on knowing what this could be, or how to go about fixing it.

sounds like pump noise from the AIO, any coolers to test against?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explainedˢsͥˡ ͮuͤ ͬˢgͭ ͦᶰoͤ

I think the warranty is expired, I got it around 5 years ago, the only thing I have replaced since then is the graphics card. I'll look into air coolers as well, if it turns out to be a pump issue. Thanks for the help!

Aio's are only meant to last around 6 - 7 years.

Either they break, or the liquid permeates the tubes.


If you can, then you should.
