I noticed on one of my folding rigs that the gpu process kept failing and I would get artifacts on the screen.. upon further investigations I realized the pump for the gpu loop had stopped working, When I pulled the pump assembly out I saw the problem..

MCP350? Older versions would do that! Kind of why I stuck with the 655 until the last purchase I made.

The older MCP350 series pumps PCB gets real hot with continuous use, and are prone to failure. They make heatsink kits for them that are supposed to eliminate the problem, but if you have the room I would just run the bulletproof 655 instead

Hard to beat the MCP655 or variant for reliable operation and if you can find a place to mount it.

 Yea, my 655 is the first pump I ever bought and it's still running :)

 

If I recall correctly, it was for a Q6600 with 2 4870's build when they first came out, and for the past year or 2 it was on one of my folding rigs (i7-920). I currently have that one apart and am transferring my i7-3930k over to that system (which has a mcp355 that also has been running for a couple  years.. the res top has changed but the pump remains the same..)

All the 655/D5 variants I have are still runing and I just bought the ApogeeDrive II that uses the 355 as the pump so hopefully it lives for a while.

IF you do get that pump again grab the Heatsink for it. it will help alot.


"It works Because I threatened it. :lol:" - " did you show it the sledgehammer" - "No, A flight of stairs"
"I don't want to be much of a forum Nazi but this situation calls for a hail Bosco and blitzkrieg someone".

If that does not work I hop in a Madcat and Blast it to microscopic Particles.
