The short story is - it's working now, largely thanks to the help I've received here.
However, I do have some follow up stuff.
I tested the pump by its self in a small closed look and it seems to be working ok, air bubbles mess it up really bad and make it stop spinning though.
As soon as that air escapes, it runs better.
It's connected by a 4-pin molex.
It also has a 3-pin connection that can plug straight into the motherboard, but I don't have that plugged in.
Is there a difference? Is one or the other preferred?
It is still quite difficult to fill the system, have to tilt it all around to get water started through all the tubes or else the pump won't work very well.
Here is a picture of what I currently have:
At this point, I just have a really hard time filling the system.
I guess that's not a huge deal so long as I can get it to work at all, but I wanted this to be more convenient.
The fill lines and drain lines work ok, I just need to have water in all the tubes before the pump will work very well.
Is there anything I'm still doing wrong?
Are there any ways this can be improved?
