Hi, My AIO pump is making a high pitched whine and my CPU temp is getting above 80°C. What component part number is it and where in Canada can I purchase the AIO unit that will fit the Aegis X3 VR7RD case?

Alan, Thanks for the information. Unfortunately, my AEGIS X3 precedes the CORELIGUID 240R AIO. There is no specific manufacturer label or part number on the unit, only the MSI dragon logo. This is making it difficult to find the specs for the pump's dimensions and whether I can use a third party product to fit in the case. Without pulling the AIO pump out of the case and physically measuring it, it looks like it is between 80mm and 92mm in size. I've attached the spec sheet for this PC but the one thing it doesn't show is the cooling unit specs.

That may be your only choice then to pull the cooler and match it up with one

And not positive but i believed that model to be Air cooled and not to have a AIO

Alan,
The model I have was manufactured in 2017/2018 for the European market with an AIO instead of the standard air cooler. As you can see in the attached photo, the AIO radiator is set below the GTX1070 video card. This is not an optimal configuration as the AIO pump has to work harder to get fluid up to the CPU vice using gravity to assist it. It is also a probable reason why the pump is not working as well as it used to after only 4 years.
