A friend built me a gaming PC last month and I just upgraded the air cooler to a liquid cooler. I bought this liquid cooler (Antec Kuhler H2O 620) from a guy in the local area for $40. He sent me a video of it working, but when I got to putting into my PC, it didn't work. I think I got scammed..
When I turn on the PC, the liquid cooler immediately makes this scratchy fizzy noise. The PC stays on for about 20 seconds before turning off. I put toilet paper around some of the tubes just in case it began to leak (it hasn't leaked, yet). Everything should be plugged in correctly.
I literally know nothing about liquid coolers, I only bought one because I've read a lot of interesting things about the AMD FX 9370 and how its power hungry and things and such.
So did I buy a completely wasted liquid cooler or is this fixable? Anything helps.
I don't know if this helps but here are my specs:
