Thread Starter 
i have just installed a bigwater 745 cooling system into my pc my spec was asus striker extreme mobo, intel q6600 quad cpu overclocked to 3.0mhz, 600w ocz psu, 2x 1gb corsair ram, 2x 8600gt, thermaltake typhon 120.

i connected everything up the way it told me in the manual. went to turn it on and it ran for 2 seconds before shutting off. i checked for leaks and there are none and tried again and all the happens is the punp led flashes once, fans twitch and then nothing.

any1 come across this? any ideas?

Check to make sure all your cables are nice and tight, and that you didn't hit your RAM or jumpers loose. If after that it still doesn't boot try resetting your CMOS.

your wcing loop is shutting down or the computer?

if it is the computer reseat the cpu block
some mobo will not work with out a cpu fan. some will give you the option to turn that feature off in the bios.

how do you reset the cpu block? sorry bit of a noob.

also the light on the pump no longer flashes when i turn it on is there a way of checking both my psu and the pump?

Are you sure this isn't a grounding problem?

Make sure nothing is touching the case as it could be shorting out.

Hes right, on a Asus mobo you need a 3-pin fan plugged into the CPU's fan header, or just turn it off in bios....Its a safety thing to keep you from starting up with-out your CPU cooling....

if that doesn't work i would make sure there is nothing shorting your mobo such as new metal pieces touching it or the weight of blocks making it short etc. I know once my mobo was shorting on the case itself because of riser screws.

what psu you running? if your pump puts too high of a load on the psu, the psu will shut off

my current pump throws my old tester psu off anytime i try to use it to test my loop
