Hello,

I went to power on my machine this morning and noticed CPU fan failure...went into BIOS and found CPU temps were in the 70C which is insane for my rig. Reboot, moved PWM fan power input from motherboard port to another Aux Fan input. Still no notification of pump movement, I can see water isn't moving thru the loop. I can see an air bubble going from the CPU block back to the Distro Plate. Reboot, go back into bios and temps are now in the low 90C range for the CPU. Kill all power to the rig.

I have ordered a DDC 3.25 pump to replace the 3.1..planning on draining the loop to clean it, and waiting on the pump replacement.

Have I missed anything or done something stupid possibly?

Doesn't sound like you have, you could check the pump directly ran off the PSU to eliminate the motherboard and open it(pump) up to check it's clear of obstructions but that's obviously unlikely.

Tried that, ran it directly off a SATA power rail and it’s not turning, it’s barely 3 months old.. Gonna dismantle it this weekend, also ordered a DDC 3.25 fan that will run on direct power from the PSU.

When I found out it was a 3.1, I was a little upset, but that's my fault for not reading the fine print, I am gonna RMA it eventually when I get a 3.25 installed with a heatsink. Once the pump is replaced I'll keep it in reserve or sell it on ebay.

I have been staring at distribution plate's , might do one day pondering making my own though too.
