CharmedLover84 Posted September 19, 2006 Posted September 19, 2006 A few days ago, I refilled my liquid cooling because it was getting a little low, right when I changed to the DFI board coincidentally. I've always been told "Make sure your liquid cooling pump stays upright". Well... mine fell over... then I got bubbles in my system (which I expected with filling it up) so I worked them out with the PSU powering only the LC system and not the computer, then I booted back up. Temp on the CPU got hotter than h-e-l-l so I turned it off... sure enough the tube coming "out" of the CPU was warm to the touch. I was like "Okay, what the heck" During working out the bubbles my pump ended up in several non-upright positions... So I worked on it for two hours... then I flipped it upside down... now everything works great and it's actually keeping my system COOLER than ever. My CPU Idles at 26-27C @ 2.9GHz when I have both my radiator fans turned up high (I modified my radiator and put two Thermaltake 120MM fans with fan controllers on them so I can crank them up when gaming/benchmarking). Is this a bad idea or will it be okay? Should I be expecting to replace my pump soon or... will it be fine running upside down until I get a new liquid system here in probably a few months?
