Tonight, out of nowhere, I started hearing a noise coming out of the tower while using the comp. I honestly thought it was my AC unit in the room as it sounded like a water pump.
Upon further inspection I realized it was coming from the CPU. I took off the panel and sure enough the source of the sound was my Domino ALC liquid cooling.
I've done some browsing on the web to see what it could be, and judging by the way it's sounding like a coffee maker, I can only guess that it's a pump failure.
I've literally only had the computer for 1 year now (bought last april) and on the coolit website they claim you don't have to worry about refills / leaks / maintenance for 5 to 7 years, so I would think it's not an issue of needing more liquid. I also looked carefully for any leaks and didn't spot anything.
Now idling, the comp is running at 48c when it would normally be at about 28c to 32c.
Has anyone had a similar problem? I'm financially strapped right now, and I don't think I'll have the finances to go out and buy a new cooling unit any time soon, so I'd like to fix this myself if I can.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
