Cryorig XT140 Ticking Noise

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It's making a ticking sound similar to when a drive needle is acting up during a read cycle, one of the scariest things I don't like hearing from my PC.

 

I thought at first it was either of my hard drives creating the noise because those are fairly new and not much data has gone through them.

 

 

I was able to isolate the noise and surprised to find out that it was coming from my CPU Cooler which is a Cryorig R1 Universal

the noise is coming from the thin fan, the XT 140, I unclipped it from the heatsink and checked the axle lock,

that thin plastic washer that keeps the bearings in and prevent them from coming off has loosened.

 

I flattened the plastic washer and put it back in and the noise is gone, a day later it's making a noise again and most likely the washer came off again.

 

Not sure if taking a plastic washer from a different fan would solve the problem because I'm think it's likely to come off again since it's of the same material.

 

I'm thinking of other ideas for a fix at the moment, maybe someone else had this problem too and I would like to know how others repaired theirs.

overbending this plastic washer somehow fixed it. It's no longer coming off to make that ticking noise again so far. I'll look into making a clip lock by bending paperclips if those could work.

If its still under warranty, RMA. They should accept that for just fan.

I don't have too much experience with the XT140, but I have had bearing issues with its big brother XF140. Cryorig was very responsive and very quick with the RMA.
