Thread: Liquid cooling system, noisey?

    Liquid cooling system, noisey?

    I have a liquid cooling system in my pc and I wanted to know how to make the rear exhaust fan more quieter. I don't know if it's the fan thats making noise or if it's the air that is going through the heatsink. This liquid cooling system has a speed controller so I can make the fan go fast or slow, it does get a little bit quieter when I lower the fan speed but sense I am a gamer, I like it going fast for better performance. How can I make it so the fan speed stays fast and doesn't make noise?

    Thanks 8-)

    Is this a prebuilt water cooling system, or did you buy the parts seperate? Also, is the pump built into the radiator, cpu block, or is it some other place i cant see?

    It's prebuilt and the pump is built into the radiator, cpu block. I bought this pc at IBUYPOWER and they built everything for me, I just told them what parts I wanted and stuff. I am a noob at modding and other stuff but I am learning about it as the days go by, thats why I registered here yesturday so I can learn about modding and other awesome stuff. I am just glad I found this website 8-).

    With that setup there is not a lot of adjustment.

    Can try changing the fan out and replacing it with a lower dB level fan. Thats possibly going to affect the cooling potential of the system. If they would have went with the R120 cooler instead of the R80 your noise level would not have been as high as it is.

    Is that right? bigger fans make less noise?

    In general yes. Larger fans run lower RPMs, which produce less noise.

    Fan Dimension ----- 80 x 80 x 25 mm
    Fan Speed ---------- 1,800 ~ 3,800 R.P.M.
    Air flow -------------- 53.499 CFM
    Air pressure -------- 8.658 mm-H2O
    Fan Noise ----------- 24.4 ~37.9 dBA
    Fan Bearing Type - Long life sleeve bearing


    Fan Dimension ---- 120 x 120 x 25 mm
    Fan Speed --------- 800 ~ 2,800 R.P.M.
    Air flow ------------- 106.917 CFM
    Air pressure ------- 5.604 mm-H2O
    Fan Noise ---------- 21.3 ~ 35.32 dBA
    Fan Bearing Type - Long life sleeve bearing

    For a quick test you could turn the fan around to see if that changes the noise level.

    That WC setup looks like a CoolerMaster Aquagate.....

    Fan Speed 1,800 ~ 3,800 R.P.M.
    Air flow 53.499 CFM
    Fan Noise 24.4 ~37.9 dBA

    I am taking this info from the 80mm one. The fan is a fairly loud anyways, but I think if you could find a happy medium; say about 2700 RPM the noise level would not be to bad and still keep your system at a decent temp.

    Maybe a adapter that fits onto the 80mm rad then a 120mm fan sits on the adapter. Then you'll get the air flow but a quieter fan.
