Pump overheating

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,


Ive had the x20 750 for a while now, but it was too loud for me, so i made a molex femle to 3 pin fan femal and connected it to my mobo header and turn the speed waaay down, its almost inaudible now.

But my problem is that when i touch the pump, it is hot! I dont know if this heat is due to the water being hot, or the pump overheating?

My temps are also at about 68 - 74 degrees celcius im not too sure if thats too hot, could this be from the slower running pump
?? but i do also have the fans running really slow,

My 3820 is at 4.2ghz with 1.34 voltage, im still in the process of lowering the vcore though.

Thanks anyhealp would be appreciated

Define hot? Can you touch your pump for a long amount of time? 68-74 degrees under load at 4.2ghz and 1.34 voltage is quite hot, do you happen to know your water temp? Your motherboard can output 1A (average) over the 3-pin/fan connector, that shouldn't be an issue, I would still not prefer it over the proper molex connections though. Try to put it back to the normal configuration and see what happens? These temperatures are too high, in my opinion.
