  1. I think my main question is, assuming the pump will work correctly from now on, is there any remaining danger or significant negative to not RMA'ing the board and just ignoring the broken PUMP header?
  2. It's a Fractal Celsius+ S24 so it should normally not be that cheap quality. Why would I lose the pump when connecting it to the CPU header? The way Fractal instructs installing this AIO in the manual is to connect all fans/pump to the fan hub it comes with, and then connect that one to the CPU header. You should expect this to not be a problem in itself if it's in the official instructions, right?
  3. Could I just leave it like it is and stay with the CPU header for everything? Or might that bring more problems in the future?
  4. Hey there, So I built a new gaming rig 4 weeks back and used (for the first time) an AIO. Upon receiving this 'new' AIO there were immediately some problems with it. For example, it came with no thermal paste (should have been pre-applied even) and there were some screws missing. Anyhow, I sorted this out with my seller and continued building. Next thing that happend was that the AIO sounded much more loud that seemed normal to me, this made me even more doubtful than I already was. However, after doing all kinds of (stress)testing everything seemed normal except for the noise. I p
  5. I've done some more research and did a bit of fiddling with the settings and seems like it was the PWM control that caused the noise. The way the manual tells you to set this AIO up is to connect both fans and the pump to a PWM control hub and connect that one to a single header on the MOBO. This means that both fans and the pump will variate in their speed constantly. I now connected both fans to a PWM control hub connecting to my CPU header and connected my pump seperatly to my PUMP header. The CPU header still uses PWM to variate the fan's speed depending on the CPU temperature
  6. Hey there, I'm a little bit new into AIO's (just bought my first one: Fractal Celsius S24+) and I'm confused about what the best RPM seetings are. My AIO cooler allows me to do three things: 1) Use PWM to variate the pump speed depending on the CPU load 2) Set its RPM to 100% constantly (2700RPM) 3) Set its RPM to a lower percentage, like 35% For me, the first option seemed by far the loudest and I also read that constantly changing RPM on the pump might impact its lifetime negatively. The second option is a little bit less loud, yet still audible
  7. It's mounted as an exhaust on the top, so should follow all those guidelines. Does air cause this kind of sound, of is this just the normal sound of an AIO? Thing is that it actually could even be a defect, my unit came without pre-applied thermal paste (even tho it should come with it as advertised) and was missing 4 pair of screws and those little round things to put between ur screws and the surface. Makes me cautious that here isn't some kind of defect with this unit. However, temps seem to be fine.
  8. I've just build my new gaming PC and for the first time ever, I am using an AIO. In this new build, I discovered a new type of sound I have never heard before coming from a PC. It sounds a bit like someone mowing their lawn 5 houses in the distance, or someone trimming the hedge at that same distance. The sound gets louder when under load, and less loud when idle. First, I though it were my fans. But after disabling all of them and still hearing the sound coming from the middle of my PC, I am pretty sure it's the pump. The AIO I bought is the Fractal Design Celsius+ S24. Both fans
  9. Yeah, with debunked I mainly meant the whole "Only buy cards with all MLCC capacitors, others are bad" thing. However, going back to topic, do you have adivce in regards to my original question?
  10. This deviates a bit from the topic, but this has in fact been debunked. The 'more expensive' capacitors, called MLCC, and the 'cheaper' capacitors, called SP-CAPS, all have their own strenghts and weaknesses. Choosing for one or the other is not necessarily better or worse and depends entirely on the overal PCB design. The latest drivers NVIDIA released fixed most of the crashing issues people had, which they blamed on the capacitor configuration. That is not to say there weren't some models in pre-production that were unstable due to a bad configuration. They have been never rele
  11. Hey there, A simple question, with a not so simpel answer to it probably. What are the best AIB RTX 3080 models out there that one should aim for purchasing? I say aim, because actually buying one isn't a thing at the moment, pre-ordering so we'll get one soon-ish is tho. I have an MSI RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio pre-ordered on the day of release. I've had a MSI GTX 970 GPU for years and I have been very satisfied with it, reviews of previous cards in this line-up are also good, which is why I choose for this specific brand and model. Reviews of the different models this ti
  12. I'll definetly take a look, probably have to see what cooler the stock Zen 3 CPU are going to ship with.
  13. Hey all, I've made a PC configuration below and I would love to have some opinions on it. My intention is to build a gaming PC, which I can also use for AI training, that will allow me to play all games for the upcoming 5-ish years on ultra settings with 1080p and 144Hz.
