Hi,

Over the past couple of months I've noticed an increasingly loud sound coming from my Coreliquid.

I'm almost certain at this point that it's coming from the pump. I know it's not the fans because I've purposely stopped them from spinning on startup for several seconds and it still makes this sound. Also, I recently re-mounted it & put rubber washers between the radiator and case to rule out vibration between the two.

Is my pump dying? Should I unmount it again and see if the screws to the pump are loose?

I've only had this for about 9 months. After several seconds it normalizes and gets quiet again. Sometimes after playing a game I can hear it making a faint clicking sound. It seems to only be this bad upon startup but it has me concerned it's going to stop working any day.

Thanks in advance for your help.

is it air bubbles sound like this?
make sure the pump header is well seated and install the radiator higher than the pump header should improve the noise.
if you're worried about the noise, you could share a video of it here
