Hi, I've experienced a noise coming from my pc lately but I cannot identify its source. My guess is that it's from the pump, I've already submitted a ticket to NZXT. I've recorded a video of it here:

I have confirmed that the noise isn't a HDD or a fan.
My PC:
I7 9700K
ASUS ROG Z390-F
ASUS RTX 2070 Turbo
NZXT X73 AIO
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 8GB x4
Corsair RM850x
NZXT H710 case

Thanks in advance.

Can you give it a 180 if the tubes aren't too short?
The purpose of vertically rotating the rad 180 degrees:
These units are not topped off with fluid, so there is air present. With the new orientation, the pump should push the stray air bubbles/pockets into the rad, after which it'll rise to the other end and get trapped there.

I'll try that and let you know 👍

Unfortunately it didn't seem to work 😅. I ran it like that for a good half an hour. The radiator is too big for me to put it in flipped 180 so I had to hold it there 😅.

Case closed, it was a fan after all.
I first suspected a fan because it seemed to have a lubricant leak, I changed it, yet it still made the noise so I assumed it was something with the pump. Then I curiously checked the fans again and, to my surprise I changed the wrong fan.
Sorry for wasting your time 😅👍
