After a rough start with 2 bad pumps, I finally found a winner!

My goal in this project was to create a quiet yet powerful media center PC capable of doing much more than your grandmothers media PC. After replacing most of the fan cooling solutions with liquid, I realized that most of the leftover noise was coming from the 2 1TB hdds that I had in a RAID 1, so I removed them. They were getting really hot anyway (in the 70's! redface.gif ). Well they got moved to a computer in another room. Also, I found a couple of black lights that I had sitting in a drawer for about 10 years. They really brought to life the semi translucent blue tubing that I put in.

I'm not ultra-excited about my final load temps, but the system is 600mhz overclocked and my video card too, and the temps are within acceptable limits (and thats with both furmark and prime95 running simultaneously)... perhaps a triple rad is what I need?

This has been and will continue to be a fun build. I am constantly making improvements when I find another way to make it cooler (literally and figuratively). For instance, after overclocking and poking around with a thermal gun, I realized that there are plenty of 'hot spots' like mosfets out in the open on my board that could use some little coolers. So I'm now waiting on some little 6mm x 6mm heatsinks and some little 20mm fans to place strategically around my board.

Would love to hear your comments and/or suggestions!

That's a gorgeous looking rig, particularly with the lights out! Really good job and I'm glad it's working well for you.

My second pump is dying CPU fan connector, the same thing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKWpFO-qL9w mad.gif

Sent you a PM. Don't worry, we'll get this resolved one way or another.

I see you have something plugged into the CPU header. is the pump or pump splitter plugged into another 4 pin? You have to be careful, becaues the CHA_FAN_1 4 pin on my P8Z68 is voltage controlled despite being a 4 pin header. I tested it last night and am running a 3 pin gentle typhoon on it. (this wasnt the cause of my particular problem though)

Plug your pump into the CPU header where it technically should be and see if the problem goes away. Swiftech has stated that you shouldnt be controlling the pump via 3 pin/voltage.

link to my mobo manual:

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1155/P8Z68-V_PRO_GEN3/E6850_P8Z68-V_PRO_GEN3.pdf

its on page 2-2.

plug in a 3 pin fan and if it changes speeds on that header, its voltage controlled.

I had a cord attached to the CPU FAN connector in the past but the result is always the same, I tried out just how it will react in a different terminal, and in this case it was the CHA FAN connector 3. The pump is indeed something strange noises all the time.It is now switched back to the CPU FAN connector, see what happens.

let us know how it goes. From my experience, Asus board fan headers are grouped by the following:

CPU FAN (4pin) and CPU OPT (4pin) are controlled with the same % despite being separate headers. Maybe even on the same circuit. Probably designed for push/pull on the CPU heatsink. Both controlled by a single adjustment. These are true PWM headers. My h220 is plugged into CPU FAN, splitter into CPU OPT.

CHA_FAN (3 pin) and CHA_FAN_1 (4pin) are both voltage controlled despite being physically different in type. Both controlled by a single adjustment.

PWR_FAN (3 pin) and all of the other PWR labeled headers are always on and not adjustable.

TL;DR, there are only 2 fan adjustments to be made. 2 headers for each.

If it's also making some strange noises it could simply be that your coolant has some debris in it. Do you think you could flush and refill your kit if I walked you through it? I can send you another bottle of PM2 coolant if you're located here in the US or Canada. Let me know if this is possible for you and we'll go from there.

My Asus board (Sabertooth X79) has all four-pin fan headers, but only the two cpu fan headers are PWM. The rest are voltage controlled.

good to know. Dang shame that its not really specified in the manual and has to be determined manually.
