Quitting the water cooling scene


Recommended Posts

I decided to change out the tubing in my WC loop today. I ordered some red tubing to match the rest of my build nicely, and went through my build, getting everything nice and tidy. Went to do my leak test... and there's no movement from the pump. It sounds like it's working, you can hear the propellers spinning... but there's no water movement (or very little, anyway). So, I've had it. I'm tired of having to clean out my parts, and I'm tired of emptying my water. I love the aesthetic look of watercooling, but it's just too damned inconvenient for my taste. I've already ordered my new Hyper 212 Evo.

Did you try priming the pump? I just rebuilt the wife's and had a similar problem and it turned out that I had over tightened the pump head after cleaning it out. Same pump as the one in your sig.

The thing was, I didn't do anything with the pump. literally the only thing that I did was change the tubing, and my pump was working before hand. In any case, it's too much trouble. Trying to sell some of the parts to a friend of mine (anarchytwist, around here. He doesn't post much. Just buys from the market place).

Not that I'm Trying to be a jerk But are you sure you did not Check something, Accidentally adjust your Pump to low, CPU block clogged or what cokeman said.

 

Well if you are going to sell out of water cooling then let me know what you have for sale.

I considered the block being clogged, but I just took it apart, and it was fine. As I have a single speed pump, it's pretty impossible for me to have adjusted it :lol:

 

I'm considering holding onto my parts and playing around with them in my spare time. It's looking like I'll have my hands on another 2500k, so I might throw it on there and see what comes of it. Unfortunately, I allowed a friend of mine to clean the waterblock after I took it out, and he managed to scratch the copper base up pretty nicely, so it's not going to get much on the market. I'll let you know, though, if I finally decide to sell it all off.

 

 

Edit: I tried with another PSU, as well, and the pump does the exact same thing.

Are you sure it's primed? Mine does the same thing if it's dry or has an air bubble.

I've ran into the same issue myself, have ran into it on my 355's and 655. Sometimes you just need to work that air bubble out by powering it off and back on generally helps but some times you have to change the angle (tip) the pump from side to side (with it off) to get the air out of it..
