Wow, that is epic... Although that hasn't happened to my current rig just yet, I have witnesses some strange squealing and grinding coming from my D5 pump a couple of times. Scared the hell out of me, but I got it under control. Still, I ended up buying another D5 and the same thing happened 6 months later... Turned out that I had to have a mandatory 75% water in my Alphacool pump/bay res, or it starved the pump. Duh.

I had a Bitspower X-Station that had the Molex that was powering my pump go bad. Luckily I was in the same room and started smelling the "heat"(like when you just open a clothes dryer after it's been running) and got it shut down before anything bad happened. Switched plugs and everything was fine after that

Same here haha

Oh god, that's my worst nightmare.

Yep. When water cooling you never know what can happen or when so its just extra peace of mind to shut her down when I'm gone.

I guess it comes down to maths. Which will happen first? Block death, or power bill rape. My power bill has gone up a good 1.50-3.00$ a day since building this system. I'm attributing it to the 3930k more than anything else since it's @ a constant 5.0. Maybe I should look into using offset instead so it can actually go into an idle state.

stagnant water is bad news. That much is obvious. (@least for some one who's had pools his hole life)

Indeed. And unless it's crunching or mining or torrenting or something like that why leave it on? It's just a waste of power and money at the very least.

I'm just about to start folding again for my old team. Last time I was folding I was still on air. Kind of nervous about it but oh well. I trust my build to keep the liquid on the INSIDE of the loop lol.

If you were paying $0.15/kwh your computer would need to be pulling 700W from the wall all day long to use $3/day. I have a 16 core lga2011 system and a GTX780Ti at 1350/3750 that run full load 24/7. Combined they still don't cost me $3/day.



I've left my watercooled computers unattended and powered on for 3 weeks at a time. I trust my build skills and hardware.

What did you figure the amount was for folding per month? I'm pretty sure it was either you or knuckle that added it up and it was penny's per month i believe?
