Yesterday i have finished building my first pc, i fired it up today, no problems but a ticking noise from the water pump. I had the pump connected to the 3 pin cpu header, I did run the test from my asrock software on the fans and noticed that the pump was not running on full rpms, but when i did the test which involved the fans going up and down the ticking stopped. I turned off the computer and connected the pump to the power fan header which has constant 12v and the rpms are at 2700 but the ticking is still there and annoying. Any ideas? Should i wait couple of days for that ticking to go away?
