Its possible. I dont know what it would look like. Thats a terrifying thought lol


The tear down begins... On to bigger and better things... maybe...

D5 pump impellers are black plastic. Most impellers are either black or white. So it would look like some black or white plastic had been blended.

Other than running dry, the only other explanation I can think of is that you had ice going through the pump and the ice damaged the impeller.

Doesn't make much difference. Either way, you'd need a new pump.

Let us know what you find.

Little black pieces that look like they were blended sounds exactly like what I saw. I wonder if both pumps are dead. I'll have to test.

My ocool pump seemed like it wasnt pumping whatsoever. The mcp35x pump seemed like it still was. Not for sure though.
Thanks for the help in trying to identifying the issue!

Yeah, that's kinda how it feels too haha.

Good news. I setup a test loop and my MCP35x is alive and pumping strong. It says a lot for it that my other pump died and it is apparently not even damaged.

Actually turned out all of my pumps are fine, so I bought an extra one for no reason rolleyes.gif Oh well lol



I think it would be cool for us to hold some sort of extreme cooling (meaning at least subambient) competition. The idea would be to inspire people to create new innovative and cost effective cooling solutions. Rules to make it interesting would be things like:
  • $200-$400 Price Limit (Includes all cooling hardware, not computer components)
  • Winner based on cooling power per dollar
  • Must be usable 24/7 (not necessarily handle 100% load 24/7)

I think there's a lot of people who would get involved if it didn't cost so much or look so scary. We have smart capable people here. With a little friendly competition, maybe we could whip out a game changer?

So, what was the black stuff you saw and why did your pump start working again? Did you check the impellers for damage?

I'll just quote my build thread.

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

The idea is very feasible but the Price Limit seems low don't you think?
