Question Awful msi cooler noise on bootup

May 9, 2021
Hello fellow pc people!

I’ve had an msi 240r coolermag aio for about a year and a half now. There is a buzzing noise on startup but I don’t know how to fix it. I’ve tried running the speed on extreme but that didn’t work. The noise almost sounds like a fan rubbing against a cable, although there are no loose cables when I look in my case.

My temps are also strange, I was getting 32 - 26 in the bios when I first bought the cooler and now I’m seeing around 45 - 49. Not sure if the pump is broken or if there is just a ton of air trapped inside.

My cpu is a Ryzen 7 2700x and my motherboard is an msi b450 carbon ac pro if that helps

here is what it sounds like
