There pretty good to be honest.

I understand they are busy and inundated with builds however customer service should be the forefront of their business, therefore they need to incorporate more effective communication / responsiveness.

Parvum have had 4 months to design, cut, assemble, test etc and it's disappointing to receive a product that is not what was promised by the company. Haven't received any response from them and not willing to wait another 4 months to a solution.

Regards

I did my research before ordering, Ive read some horror stories, but reading through them they all seem to get resolved and in the end the customer usually ends up happy. Im crossing my fingers mine ends up right the first time.

Im sure it will get resolved like the others.

Im more worried about its chemical tolerance being acrylic lol. Ive had to many accidents involving dumb mistakes with 99% isopropyl alcohol and acrylic water cooling components such as just having it on my hands/not washing them off, spilling it, and thinking it was a wet paper towel of water and it being wet with iso alcohol instead...i tend to be a bit bone headed when it comes to handling that stuff for some reason, it has costed me a LOT of money in stupid stupid STUPID mistakes...

however i do know certain grades of acrylic have different tolerance levels...and they state "We source our raw materials carefully choosing only high quality, recycled, European made acrylics." so id have to assume they are of decent higher grade.

Sorry for late reply, we actually have admin help down with us now 2-3 days per week and its getting our response time immensely improved. The only reason you had no reply first working day this week (Yesterday) is we had to close warehouse and could not make it in until today.

I will reply to your email and ensure everything gets resolved ASAP. I will post progress and updates here also.

That awful moment when pre-emptively buying watercooling gear bites you in the ass, hard. Bought myself a dual D5 from EK: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xtop-revo-dual-d5-pwm-serial-incl-pump and while sleeving the cables, and just happening to watch my brother's cat; she decides to bite into and rip off the PWM signal cable from the pump's PCB. Tried soldering it to an optional resistor, but no luck. Fun fun having to spend another $80 on a new pump. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

That sucks. The cat better do some laundry for that. I received most of my watercooling stuff last weekend. I didn't expect a D5 pump to be that huge biggrin.gif I hope my case arrives near the future so I can figure out the rest of the parts.

Soldering to a resistor? Isn't it soldered to a normal PCB copper pad?

Indeed, but the copper trace was ripped off the PCB. I've been in contact with EK about it extensively, they're the ones that told me to solder the wire into the resistor.

Unfortunately the place I have to solder it into is in the pump housing itself, and right next to the transistor of the pump. It's near-impossible to do as is. It's also beyond tiny just to make it even worse.
