Nvidia 790i board pulled by makers
According to our source, motherboard manufacturers are pulling boards based on the NVIDIA 790i chipset. DFI, Foxconn and Gigabyte have all reportedly pulled the boards from their product pages. However, OC3D have it from an ASUS source that the 790i will remain in their current lineup:
"ASUS are still producing the Striker 2 Extreme and Striker 2 NSE range, which use the 790i Ultra and 790i chipsets respectively from Nvidia. This is currently not subject to change."
Interesting stuff indeed

Like the title says, there's a strange noise coming from my pump. At first I thought it was a HDD problem as it sounds quite similar to the noise my Seagates make when you load; that quiet, low but quick, repeated, random arm-seeking noise.

After disconnecting all the HDDs in my PC I confusedly narrowed it down to the pump. Turn off the pump, the noise stops. The res is almost full (400/500ml) and after searching the loop I can't see any signs of an air bubble. According to my fan monitor the pump is running at between 4500-4600 RPM.

Am I being too over critical here or is something going seriously wrong?

What top are you running on the pump, XSPC?

XSPC Delta apparently, yes. It was my first pump so I got it sent pre-built.

I've heard of this problem a couple of times recently, see here:

Thanks that was a great help :) Released each corner screw by 1-1.5 turns and the noise has nearly entirely gone - to hear it you have to put your ear next to it and even then it's very feint.

Still can't help the feeling that I've left myself open to a leak though.
