Well, I spent the last hour or so tearing down pumps and checking impellers. Weird news... All of my impellers seemed fine.
The next logical step was to hook them up one at a time and verify they work. They all do...

So what happened previously? I have no idea, and it really bothers me; but all of my pumps work fine and now I have an extra one rolleyes.gif


Sorry for the messy setup, I really just wanted to see if the pump worked real quick. The image below is the suspected dead pump.


And my other pumps... I definitely like the styling of the mcp50x better than the mcp35x

Have you got anything else in your loop that could have broken up and jammed the pump you thought wasn't working? That flow-meter maybe? Did you check everything in the loop? How about a rubber O ring or some black tubing? Stuff gets brittle when it's very cold.

There must be something. It's not as if black bits are going to get into your loop by magic.

There must be something. It's not as if black bits are going to get into your loop by magic.

The entirety of the loop, nothing omitted:

Cooler/Reservoir -> Pump1 -> Pump2 -> Radiator -> GPU Block 1 -> GPU Block 2 -> CPU Block -> Cooler/Reservoir
No black hose.

I pulled out all of the blocks and cleaned them by spraying water through them.

When I put the loop back together, I used the MCP35x which I was relatively sure was working fine; although it was making whining noise before.
As soon as I turned it on, it started blasting water through the loop quickly enough that my doubts about it working were alleviated rapidly.

I noticed that with this pump connected, and after freshly cleaning all my blocks and reservoir, the white piece of plastic in the picture below was shot out through the loop and became lodged in one of my GPU blocks.



I used this setup for a few days and it worked fine. So, I decided to tear apart the OCool pump, because I thought it was probably broken. So I opened it up and looked at the impeller and the impeller looked fine. There was no obvious damage to it anywhere. Obviously, that seemed weird, so I swapped my MCP35x out for it. It worked just fine.

Then I cracked open the MCP35x and again, the impeller looked fine.


So, trust me when I say, I am as perplexed as anyone about this. I guess it had to have been some sort of foreign contaminates that got in there when my friend was dropping all the dry ice in the reservoir. Besides this, I don't really have any more guesses.


EDIT:
The O-rings on the pumps were fine. I didn't notice any bad or obviously missing o-rings when tearing everything apart or putting it back together.

It could of just been in the liquid from factory and just got stuck in the pump and just happen to come out and hit the block... If the pump is fine and the res then what else can it be.. Obviously not from a part in the loop just don't worry about it give it all a nice scrub and put back together again be like new

Yeah, that's probably what I'll do until I replace my GPU blocks. But, now I have all this extra pumping power I feel like I need to use it for something....

Well, I got my new ram. Slightly disappointed to not have any performance gains after repeatedly reading and being told it would help lol
Still, it looks pretty good.

The ram looks sick. And yea that's all I keep reading. Better ram that works with and will give better performance. But haven't seen enough proof yet
