Default H320 pump noise


My brand new H320 has pump noise that I am guessing is not good. If you dl that audio clip you will hear 10sec of system idle with the pump on followed by 10 seconds of system idle with the pump off. Please let me know what you think. Thank you

Have you checked to ensure that it is "topped up" ? There is a lot of good info over at the Swiftech section if OC'ers Forum.

Default Best way to burp loop

First, remove your radiator from your case and gently shake it. You’ll need to hold it above the pump in order to do this properly. You’ll also want your pump running while you’re doing this.

Next, gently tilt your case from side to side and from back to front to help dislodge any remaining air bubbles. You may need to do this for a few minutes to get your pump to quiet down.

If the previous step was still not successful you may need to gently squeeze the tubing above the fittings on either side of your pump. Do this very gently so that you don’t end up putting unnecessary pressure on your barb fitting elbows. This should finally dislodge any remaining air bubbles trapped in your pump.

These procedures can take several minutes to almost half an hour or more before your pump will push out the stubborn air bubble and quiet down. Once this has occurred you can then just open the fill port cap on your radiator and top off your radiator with a little distilled water."

might be impeller contact, white area is a rubbing and leaving particles (jet nozzles plug)

other thing to do is call house doctor to bring blood pressure apparatus so can

push the air to top as pic below with fill hole highest point of loop

by pumping air and pressurizing fill hole (Note Max 5 PSI with pump off) to bring up air for

fluid is heavier the gas

like when fart in a pool what way the bubbles go ?

tapping the rad and pump with the handle end of a screw driver works too.

Call a house doctor??? LOL!
