Question Kraken Z73 Pump Noise

May 24, 2020
Hello everyone,

I just installed the Kraken Z 73 and I am pretty satisfied with the results so far.
One thing I noticed is that the pump makes a high pitched buzzing sound.

I recorded it you can clearly hear it it's the most dominant noise (You probably have to enable sound)

Since NZXT uses the new Asetek Gen 7 Pump I thought it is much quieter but maybe it's normal how it sounds?

If anyone with a Kraken Z cooler could verify this or deny it would be awesome or if anyone has a clue if this is normal Asetek Pump behavior.

Thank you guys
