My thoughts exactly!
I may be wrong by stating that 5-10 sec of running dry can kill a D5 pump, but by saying it, I might bring the fact that pumps dont like to run dry to the attention of folks who just started water cooling.
I usually test all my components before modding / putting them to use. If I had not seen texts like this / videos, I would probably have plugged in my pump to test it before putting it in my loop.
Better safe than sorry.

The bearing,like most bearings,relies on being perfect for optimal use. Once it is marked then its a slippery slope to death.

My pump ran semi dry when filling, as the liquid got sucked in quicker than I could react to switching off the PSU. Do you think my pump is scored as well? It has been working perfectly fine for 6 months.

Semi dry is better than dry,even a small amount of water will work wonders

I cant say based on just your description,certainly not enough to commit myself to yes/no.

Fair Enough!
A second thing I'd like to tell you is that I purchased an EK D5 Vario Top-X from Specialtech.co.uk. When I run the pump on speed setting 5, I hear girdling and grinding noises. Just wondering what would cause that.
Also, when you will have the Swiftech MCRES in stock?

That said, shipping times have always been quick and they're prices always low.

I was asking about their sleeving service if they did it up to the center of the fan. It was also a bit of a feeler email as well considering the only recent reviews I could find were negative about how they went MIA and of course during that storm period where everything got delayed. I checked out their FB page as well which had a link updated in late April and only thing before that was in February so it just didn't seem like the company was active or up and running still.
