I don't really have a baseline to compare the pressure I applied with because this was my first time. If anything I might just order another just in case, since they aren't all that expensive and they are good pumps (from a good seller).

I did a "ghetto" pressure test (barb connected to my mouth with other side blocked off), and it seems to be pretty airtight as far as I can tell, so hopefully it won't leak.

Before ordering another one, I'd advise you to run this at least once for a little bit and see if it suits your WC loop. Seeing that this pump doesn't have any variable thing going on, but rather just from it's 3-pin plug (which isn't that reliable), you really don't wanna end up regretting both pumps.

What do you mean with that? I own two of the very same pumps, both being strong for over a year one in every computer, and my main rig loop isn't that simple. One of those pumps really is worth their salt.

Well I mean that if you're gonna connect it to a 3-pin mobo connector then that may not be the best idea. But rather a separate variable power would be more reliable.
However, as you've used it before hand, there shouldn't really be a problem this time either.

Oh, that is what you meant. Well, i wouldn't connect any pump to a motherboard, they draw too much power. To connect it i use a molex adapter, much like the ones that come bundled with fans.



You could also connect it to certain fan controllers, or either get a pump controller.

If you have a dollar store near you, the Superglue Gel works the best. Others have used it on these pumps as well. It dries clear and bond very well. thumb.gif
