It's possible that the order of the wiring is wrong . (This is very unlikely, but idk im just going through the options tongue.gif) And I just saw you have the non vario version of the D5 so indeed there shouldn't be a knob on that one.

Thread Starter 
Ok, so I finally got around to disassembling my loop once again. I tested the flow of my radiator, and it seems to be perfectly fine as far as I ca tell. Where I see a possible problem, however, is at the CPU block. I tried blowing through the tube that runs to the inlet of the CPU block and noticed a lot of resistance, much more than in the radiator. Is that normal for a CPU block? Or have I found a possible issue?

Maybe you should take apart the cpu block, seems like that's where the problem lies.

from what i see you have everything set up fine. one thing that could possibly be wrong is your pump flow rate. if your pump is pushing water to fast the water doesnt have enough time to absorb the heat inside the block. if you can slow your pump flow down that should give the water ample time to absorb the heat and run out the block into the rad. cause water should always start as res---->> bloc ----> rad ----> res and back again in order

Wrong, order in a loop does not matter once it reaches a certain point of equilibrium, with the exception of res -> pump with the res gravity feeding the pump to ensure that it doesn't dry start.

Problem is probably the CPU block, if you can't take it apart without voiding the warranty I would look at sending it back.

This may sound kind of silly, but, have you tried changing your blocks orientation?

Most block companies suggest orienting their blocks so that the fittings are viewed as standing one above the other. From your pictures it looks like they are side by side.

If you have tried everything else, flushed the rad, checked tubing for blockages, then try rotating your block.

Edit: alternatively, open your block and make sure that everything is inside properly, as jet plate, gasket, correct orientation of finned bottom, acording to the blocks instructions
