Regardless, XSPC should still have replaced your pump. Did XSPC change their policies? I thought they would gladly replace a pump that died because of this.

Nothing against the OP but XSPC is right in not replacing it. It's his own fault this happened, not theirs...

i have not used a kill coil.I use silver strips.Same difference.If I had a kill coil I would streach it out some so that It would not make in to the pump.Or place it some where else in the loop.Place it in a tube.Streach the coil a bit and screw it into the tubing.Then once the coil is in the barb should hold it in place and wont cause too much of a restriction.

Sorry to hear about your loss. My coils migrate too.

I used 2 coils for a year. Put one before the CPU inlet figuring it would be easy to retrieve and one in the drain. I had had one in the reservoir but it was just a straight shot to the pump and that freaked me out. That is why I put that one in the drain where there was a fitting and then a T-Cube. I have had coils get caught in T-cubes. Also in front of the GPU inlet is a very sharp bend so I don't think a coil could migrate into either the CPU block or GPU block and you could retrieve it easily if they did.

Now I have switched to .9999 true silver fittings from Bitspower and put the silver coils in my unused jug of distilled to keep it clean between fill-ups. I use twin D5 pumps on setting 5 and maybe that caused coil migration. I use Masterkleer tubing so maybe it can't grip it. I also uncoil the coil so it barely fits inside the tubing. But whatever I do, I can't get them to stay put either. So locate your coils before blocks or use silver fittings is my advice. And again, sorry about your pump. Good luck.
