Well I was under the impression no power was sent to the cables until the two pins in the 24 pin had been bridged, either manually or by the motherboard power on switch.

So in my eyes that couldn't be the cause but I'm sure more people know about this stuff than me.

That's what I did though....

It was late, i was tired!

I left the EPS cable plugged in, and bridged the ATX to prime the pump and fill the loop.

What happens to the board / CPU when someone does that?




Thanks - T

I was under the impression you had leaked water to the eps while plugged in, so not sure really.

I don't know how power is controlled from the eps and if it is controlled by something powered from the ATX then it could have damaged something, that's my thought process but like I said someone else surely knows a great deal more than I.

I know some psu won't budge if there's a grounding issue even if you manually jump the psu. Best bet is to pull all your cables from the components and remove any extensions (better yet, if you have a modular unit, remove them from the psu). Just leave the mb 24-pin cable and jump it w/ a paperclip (green cable and any black ground).

Yeah, I'll try that!

Like I said, it jumped fine when filling, and was working as per normal prior to the disassembly to install the new Glacier and custom tubing, so I'm wondering if I damaged the mobo or CPU by leaving the EPS cable plugged in while I was priming the pump and filling the system.

I've jumped the psu with my components still plugged in quite a few times. Could be something else but lets hope its not the mb or any of your main parts thumb.gif

I hated the idea of jumping the PSU, so I spent $15 on an external power supply for doing things like this. MUCH prefer that method, especially for leak testing stuff outside the system. $15 for that, plus $5 for a molex on/off switch, and that added up to the most useful $20 I have ever spent.

Yeah, I HAVE three other PSUs in the house, and one of them is even an "extra", left over from an old build, so I could use that any time I want, but I don't know if this is exactly a solution at this point, because I have to figure out if I blew something, or I'm just retarded.


Shoulda just left it all alone, and never taken the components out of their home in the SG05... doh.gif

This rig is only for the heck of it anyway, seeing as I have a Haswell mess sitting in a Corsair Air 540 waiting to be taken apart and put on a Primochill Wet Bench... biggrin.gif

SO:

It's fixed, and you don't really want to know what was wrong.

That's just bloody embarrassing, considering hardware is my hobby... doh.gif

No.
I'm not telling what happened.
Too sad for a person like us to do that and actually not figure it out.

ON TO BIGGER THINGS!!!

My Corsair PWM SP120 HP fans are going like a bat out of hell, and I don't think the SYSfan1 header on my MSI Z77 board has PWM control, so those bastards are running full-power like they're trying to cool the core of the earth...
See here:





So I have a Swiftech splitter on it's way, and that's all well and good, but I'm curious as to how to properly hook the Glacier's pump unit (true PWM, obviously), my four PWM fans, and my one solitary rear fan (voltage only) to these two headers without a bigger bird's nest or more undue money spent.


Ideas?





Thanks - T
