Flow Issue

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I was having an issue with the flow after the radiator and I was inquiring on here for some help. Does anyone know why this is happening? No kinks nor are there any blockage in the loop which has me confused. Please let me know thanks everyone. Link for picture below

Look at the tube after the first radiator. It's not filling

Tilted the case while rez is capped to eliminate any air locks?

Yeah tried doing it you think there is air in the pump? I hear wishing? This is bugging me. Still rotating it should I trying rotating it while plugged in?

Yeah, vary the speed if you can. Verify you are able to hit high rpms on the pump. Tilting the case while pumps running should help.

Did you flush the rads to ensure they are free of debris from manufacturing?

Yep I did a very through rad flush I think something might be wrong with the pump when I get home I'm going to check the rpms for a d5 doesn't seem strong.

What pump are you using? I had the same problem with the EK-XTOP. If you have the PWM cable plugged into a cold mobo, the pump will run at a much slower speed. Make sure the pump is only plugged into the shorted PSU not the mobo.

Yes, what @Fleacircus said.

I'm seeing disconnected & jumped PSU cable in the picture. Which means that this is a leak test and motherboard is powered down.

Furthermore I'm seeing what looks like a D5 pump. If indeed this is a PWM pump and it still is plugged into the motherboard, it is spinning at a crawling slow speed. If you disconnect it, it will spin up to around 60% of its maximum RPM. Still not ideal for getting the air out, but better than nothing.
