Seems like it's a no go on the pumps. I tested both on two different power supplies - my AX1200 and my HX750. Both pumps are unresponsive and both PSU's have no problem running their normal loads or fans either. It's a statistical anomaly!

I'm going to have to stop by microcenter right after work tomorrow and pick up another pump just to make absolutely sure.

I have to say that this project is getting more and more expensive by the day lol.

Thank you guys for the compliments on the picture. My diet inspired it.

Apologies for the lack of updates!

I finally figured out the whole pump issue. I went to Microcenter a few days ago and bought yet ANOTHER Swiftech MCP655-B. As soon as I opened the package, I realized my bonehead move... I completely reversed the molex connections!

I felt pretty dumb, as I hooked up the new pump and sure enough it fired away without a hitch.

Ah well, it looks like I will have an extra pump to sell pretty soon.

Anyway, the last few days were spent rearranging my loop and leak testing. I am still working on compiling my before and after comparisons and editing the photos I took. Suffice it to say, I have learned a great deal from this and I can truly say that I have a VERY deep appreciation for anyone who has partaken in any sort of watercooling project. While it isn't hard, per se, it can certainly be a lot of work to make a setup look elegant and simple. Those who have even more extravagant loops, I give you guys major props!

I will add more to this as soon as I can, but for now, here is a small glimpse of what my setup looks like right now:

G'damn that looks beautiful Covertash.

Congrats on making the move to WC, in the future I may be looking to watercooling as my 580s are giving me headaches when playing The Witcher 2 with Ubersampling at stock clocks.

Maybe you can help me out since I'd be that guy that completely forgets to secure a hose and ruins everything in my case.

Love the little customization done to the "AX" on your PSU, don't think we wouldn't notice.

Thank you for the kind words!

Sadly, it's true what they say: watercooling is indeed a slippery slope. There are a number of things I still/already want to change about my loop, but for now, this will be how it looks until I can afford the remaining parts of my upgrade/project.

I would certainly be glad to help out, just ask. I'm only a newbie myself but I will do the best I can.

Haha, ah yes, the AX sticker - I knew the astute would take notice. It actually looks good at that angle in the above picture, but in person not so much. I will post more detailed pictures later on and you'll see what I mean. As I continue sleeving my cables, I will also fix the sticker as well, and eventually show a before and after comparison.

Lol, thank you!

Oh I didn't forget about the Ramen! That update will surely come in due time. My recipes are definitely not as good as anything you will find in Japan, but it's better than the plain stuff.

You should get a dress kit for that d5 so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb in an otherwise good looking build.

Haha, I agree, the D5 doesn't look very good in stock form.

I actually do have two matte black dress kits for both (well, now it's all 3) of my pumps. Originally, I wanted to use them with a Bitspower Dual D5 MOD Top, but after having the experience of setting this whole thing up, I decided I will go for a Koolance RP-452X2 instead to clear up the clutter in that area.

The good thing is, this is still a major work in progress and I still have much to learn. For now, it looks like the stock pump will have to do for the next week or so. And thank you for the kind words!
