I tried it but it still fails.

Look.. Swiftech is also having issues with dead or semi defective DDC pumps. It's a DDC issue, not specific to EKWB.

DDC pumps are generally pretty reliable. But the design is generally the same, its mostly laing DDC rebrand.

The pumps used in the Swiftech AIOs are not DDCs.

i love how people jump on the bandwagon one way or the other... the predators are having problems at the start it happens... swiftech had pump issues in the beginning with the h220.... the x series solved much of that issue.... this is ek's first foray into aio territory and it didnt start well that doesnt mean it wont end well... but it might cost them a bit to get everything sorted out... people act as though water pumps have never failed and all the sudden are failing... seriously?.... anyone whos ran a fishtank knows pumps can an do fail at any time... an electric powered motor pushing water.... stuff happens sometimes smile.gif i have owned 3 swiftech pumps one had a bad pwm part and didnt run unless it was tweaked at a certain angle...did i jump ship and run to a ddc pump because "swiftech makes crap"? no because number one thats not true.. and number 2 i know stuff happens sometimes... imo its not if a problem arises but how a company handles it after the problem arises that matters the most to me... swiftech won more of my business because of their customer service..... i feel like eks customer service is doing a great job... people just get emotional and upset when something doesnt work... which is understandable.... but you cant expect a company to move a world... some things are out of their control

When your pump is connected to the sata power and the motherboard and the temperature is rising in the bios what does the cpu header monitoring say for rpms? 0? Also what do you have the fan curve on your cpu header set to? iirc someone here had theirs set to low of a starting power target and the pump wouldnt start...

Edit: Nevermind I take that back. It seems you're right and I got fed misinformation. Although I have one person claiming to have installed a DDC pump on a Swiftech H140-X, I'm guessing he mistook a MCP30 pump for a DDC one smile.gif
