Don't give up on water cooling from one bad pump. Things happens. At least a new pump is cheap
Haha no dude nothing happened, My rig is fine, I'm just paranoid it's gonna leak. I put so much time and money into it that I just don't want something to spring a leak and totally destroy my PC.
As far as any "boo boos", I can assure you I was super careful about filling the res and topping it off while it was leak testing. I was very cautious when filling the loop up for the first time, I took every precaution possible.
At this point, it's just getting to be a pain. Whenever I move it, whether it be to a LAN, moving it to a desk to mess with the cables, or just getting shaken a bit when the shelf it's on gets bumped into, I always cringe, thinking a fitting came loose and is gonna leak on me.
The pump isn't helping either, are res/pump combos usually loud?
