Thermaltake Water2.0 Extreme - noisy pump?

Post by ShadeOfBlue » Wed Sep 12, 2012 6:08 pm

Overall, based on a recent review by Hardware Secrets, it appears that the Silent mode is pretty quiet. What I'm wondering is how much hum/noise the pump will make?

This appears to be the best closed-loop performer at the moment, and I'm wondering if I should make the switch or stick to my air cooler (which is not quite keeping up with my Ivy Bridge i7 =/)

I bought one (along with a few others) because I want to watercool my videocard. Long story short I returned it because the pump made loud clicking/rattling noise. You can read over here:
