Thanks for your help.

You mean sometimes when you turn it on the temps are high? and than other times the temp is low?

I would find it hard to believe you got two bad pumps... how are hooking up the PWM cable?

It was previously connected to the hub - Power suply SATA connector. Now, the EK Predator 360 it´s connected directly to the motherboard and the problem persist.

you do have the sata power cable connected correct? also remove the pwm cable from the motherboard to rule out motherboard controlling it

I see the SATA cable connected OK.

Do I connect the SATA cable and disconnect the cable from the FAN CPU conector of motherboard?

Have you tried to give the pump a nudge on the side ? I have been having the same issue with both predator rev1.0 and rev1.1 .. And I reckon it is motherboard related, as the pump won't always start when the Pc is turned on, resulting in high temps.

Now, I only connected the SATA cable (not connected PWM cable) and the BIOS temperature was 46 ° C and increasing.

Then, I connected the fan cable to the CPU_FAN connector on the motherboard and now works perfect. 25-29ºC in Iddle. Temperatures normals.

The problem will reappear at some point when I turn on the PC.


NIGos, what you mean by "a nudge on the side" ?. I'm sorry but my English is not very good.

Greetings and thanks!

The sata cable ALWAYS has to be connected as that is what draws power the PWM cable is what sends the RPM signal to the MB it also allows the MB to control the Pump/fans. remove the PWM cable which should make the pump/fans run 100% to eliminate a MB issue.

I meant that you have to hit the pump on its side, I use a screwdriver personally. Keep hitting it until you hear it spinning again ... I have to do so at every coold boot.

Then, is no a problem of the motherboard because I tried the PWM cable disconnected and the temperature was very high. Now it works OK with the cable connected but I know the problem will return.

What can I do?? frown.gif


Thanks for everything!

Sounds to me like the pump works but isn't always getting turned on. Maybe the little board on your predator isn't working 100%. Try plugging the pump directly to a fan header. Least it might start to troubleshoot where the problem lies.
