Pump dead? How to make sure?

    Hello fellow TPU members.

    I have just made a first test loop, bridged a PSU and added pump, cpu block and rad together.
    Flushed the stuff out as instructed, then added the tubes n liquid.

    Thing is, my pump shuts down my PSU. If I start up the PSU without anything attached and then plug in the pump, both shut down with a little stutter from the pump (less than a second).

    With my multimeter I don't get a short circuit on the pumps molex connector, so I am not exactly sure what the problem is.
    Since the pump is second hand, it might be dead, but I want to make sure before I toss it in the bin.

    Pump is an XSPC Dual Bay pump+res. Hope someone can help me out with some info.

    Ok, I need to test this on another PSU... Everything I wire up to 12v makes the PSU go poof.
