Hi,

I have an Eisbaer LT 360 which performs well. Though, at 100% i can hear the pump buzzing a bit, not a lot but since my rig is pretty silent, I find it annoying.

I read somewhere, I don't remember where that AIO pumps were supposed to run 100%...

In the bios, i set up a curve for the pump. Now, untill 45c, it rune at 75% and then goes up to 100% at 50c

Will that somehow hurt the AIO ?

Thanks

No as long as it’s not effecting your cooling performance there’s no reason you can’t slow it down if it has the means to do so.

If the pump is allowing you to chage the RPM there’s no reason you can’t. Mine runs top speed all the time with no means to slow it down. I know some If the earlier AIOs had knobs right on the pump to adjust the speed. If you can control via the BIOS all the better.

I generally control pump speed via the Motherboard utility. In this build it's FanXpert which is part of the Asus utility

Channel 0
CPU Fan Header => Pump No. 1
CPU Opt Header => Pump No. 2

Channel 1
CHA_1 Header => Fan PCB No. 1 => (6) 140mm Fans on 3 x 140mm 45mm Radiator

Channel 2
CHA_2 Header => Fan PCB No. 2 => (4) 140mm Fans on 2 x 140mm 60mm Radiator

Channel 3
CHA_3 Header => Fan PCB No. 3 =>(6) 140mm Case Fans
