Weird rattling noise on aio cooler

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

this has been going on for a while now.

2 years ago I bought a prebuilt computer with liquid cooling and about 1 year after that there was this weird humming noise that comes out of it. There are only 2 times when it happens. Sometimes and randomly happens then goes away and it will also happen on bootup if it has been off for 24 hours. I recently replaced it with a h55 corsair but that does not seem to change anything. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? I don't think its the water cooler itself because it happens with different ones.

Something might be loose. Re-check all hardware to ensure that everything is tight.

My HDD (WD RED) makes a weird noise if its doing some intense reads, yours could be doing something similar.

if not could be an issue with the pump in the AIO

Everything looks and feels good could it be something else in the rig? i have an optical drive could it be that?

Are you using it when this humming occurs? Do you have any discs inside the drive?

3, 1 for cpu and 2 for case

When you hear humming next time, can you try pinpointing where you think it's coming from?

Are the screws for the pump tight?
