xspc twin d5 res/pump, pumps are not working

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I built my loop, filled the reservoir, then tried to power up the pumps, no water is moving and they are making a very loud screeching noise.

This is from an older thread, but my problem is exactly the same, pumps make the same noise. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gr8bNqhLJs

The out is going up to a rad, and in is coming from bottom from another rad.

So i disassembled the pumps for inspection, but i don't know how to test them, could someone tell me how? For anyone wondering, pumps came mounted to the reservoir so they don't have top's. Any help is welcome, i want to avoid rma if possible since i live in turkey and bought them from usa, it usually takes over 2 weeks for packages to get there frown.gif

I had this res and I hated it because it is very hard to bleed, in order to get water flowing you need to move the res around to that the air pockets in the pump channels get filled. If the pumps are making noise when you power them up in the res they are working. You have to rotate and move your res to make sure that there are no air pockets in the areas I highlighted.

I had to rotate the res while it was sealed to get it working fully. The challenge is that every time the res empties while bleeding you have to go through the same exercise to get fluid going again. Honestly it is the hardest reservoir to bleed that I have encountered.

Let me know if that doesn't work.

Yep, thank you so much, it worked. For future reference, what i exactly did was to fill the reservoir from the out(top when you mount it) g 1/4 threaded hole. This forced the air trapped into the area you described to the reservoir. Thanks again.

Glad that helped! Yeah when I was using that res for the first time I thought the design was so wrong because it is easy for the air to get caught in those channels and prevent the flow. they really need to improve the design of those channels to prevent these issues.

Overall, it's a very stylish looking res and build quality is actually good enough, but as you said, they need to improve those channels.
