The hard-mount on a bay res with integrated pump will transmit vibration like crazy. For that reason alone I always plumb my loops in such a way I can decouple the pump with some very soft tubing and a nice sponge pad.

yup especially extremely low pressure like a d5

I've had a D5 in a single bay res and I could hear it but not from 15m away. What case are you using, perhaps it is nasty resonance...

I'm using a Corsair C70 case, and the res is an XSPC dual bay res.

With the amount of noise that it's making it probably is a problem with the pump as others have said. I plan on taking it apart later today to check it out.

The XSPC reservoir is the issue. I have seen many complaints of the same issue. It is not decoupled at all and transfers all vibrations to the case.

I'll agree. I have one of those XSPC pump top/reservoirs and found it surprisingly noisy compared to how my pump was with a different top on it.

I've always run D5 varios and even on 5 they should be barely audible from 1-2m in a closed case. I have two in my current case in a koolance bay mount on setting 3/5 and they are completely inaudible over my 700 RPM noctuas. I concur with the above. Sounds like you have a bad pump or that reservoir conducts vibrations really well.

Well that's unfortunate. I really like the reservoir otherwise. I'll see what I can do to dampen the vibrations.

I also took apart my pump last night and here are the pictures of what I saw. https://imgur.com/a/gqZby
Everything seemed undamaged but I am not sure.

I bet pump full of air.

edit: Also, yes bay reservoirs are noisy. That is trade of for convenience of having it in front.
