XSPC 750 bay pump and res

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ladies and gentlemen, I have a question. I'd like to know if it's normal that after about 1.5 years of always-on usage, this pump is already dying. I don't know for sure if it is, so maybe you can help. Here's what's going on :

I noticed that the pump would be randomly turning on and off. I checked the power connector and noticed that it was hella loose. I soldered on a new connector and the pump was working great for about 3-4 weeks.

Thought I had it solved until 2 days ago it started acting up again. It turns on and off, very frequently and I don't think power is the problem since playing around with the wires has no impact.

I'm wondering if it's this is the normal lifespan of these pumps and if I should just get another. Or maybe somethings trapped inside? I have little experience with this so any suggestions on getting a couple more months out of it would be appreciated. thumb.gif Thanks!

The XSPC Pumps have never been that great. They are known to die fairly quickly. I would consider moving to a D5 pump. They are about $90 and you can get a XSPC res to mount in to the back of for around $50.00. That should last you 3 to 5 years.

If your system is limited on space, a DDC-1T (aka MCP350) with a performance top usually works well without cost much.

Thanks for the tips guys! I ended up still being curious about what's going on and so I took everything apart. The pump is running fine outside my case. I installed tubing between the inlet and outlet ports and it's been going fine for about 12 hours. I suspect there might have been air caught in the pump some how and I don't think my setup is Ideal for bleeding out the air. I read once that a res should be the highest point in the loop? Right now the highest point is my rad (mounted on top with one of those swiftech mounts, real ghetto style) with the cpu block and res, more or less, at the same height. I dunno anymore. I even lost the backplate for my mobo in order to install an old noctua cooler in the mean time, so I'm a little f-ed

Bump, pump starting acting up again. Turns on and off... I'm guessing it really is dead. Any way to open the res up safely to have a close look at the pump?

This!^^^

I have been running 2 DDC pumps with XSPC tops for the past 3 years without a problem.
