Aurora R4 CPU Pump Always Running

Jump to solution

Recently I noticed that the system fan on my R4 was running very loud while playing games.  After reading through the forums I decided to take the liquid cooling pump out and take it apart.  I found that it was partially clogged so I cleaned it up and applied fresh thermal paste to it and the CPU.  Since doing that it has been much quieter and the temps are staying around 25.  However I have noticed that the thermal controls in Command Center shows the CPU pump as "running" and that never changes.  I seem to remember that in the past it would show "idle" at times but I can't remember for sure.  Could this be a problem? 

Thanks

Good work doing that repair.

The pump in the Asetek Cooler must be running any time the machine is turned on.
