Odd discovery...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
EDIT: SOLVED! Molex ground pin had wiggled out of the connector

First off, heres my pump setup

as you can see the pump isnt straight and would hit the side panel, but I figured the vibrations wouldnt be too bad at 20%. As I was closing up the case, I glanced at my temps and they were pegged at 100*C(again lol) I quicky remove the side panel thinking I pulled off a power cable. Nope, then the pump quickly came back to life. puzzled I touched the pump to the side panel and it shorted out! temps climbed to 100*C once again, removing the panel my pump came to life again :S.

Is there a short in my case? is that normal?

I would assume there's a short, yeah.. But i don't know how..
if I were you I'd just put electrical tape over the area the fan is touching, it isn't too noticable, cheap and should work if it's a short..

+1 for electrical tape.
It's the only way to fix this issue without going deeper into it.
