Watercooling Pump not working

Hello,

I have just bought new tubing and coolant for my water-cooling set up (The liquid cool kit), and it was running perfectly fine, I was filling it up with the new coolant when the pump stopped working. I have tried everything that I have read on other forums, for example tilting the case to remove air bubbles from the pump to leave it half an hour?

Any ideas would be extremely nice, as I feel like crying XD haha

*** Internally Crying ***

PS: All the other components are working so it isn't a fault with the PSU

the pump is under the res right?
So thepump should have water. a airbubble isnt a problem thant.

Try to tap against the pump while it should run.
If this isnt helping, disamble the pump from the loop and spin the blades by hand a bit. Build it back in and retest.
IF this isnt helping too, -> "He is dead Jim".

But from your text: The pump was running while you filled the new liquid it? Did it run dry because the pump was faster than you with refilling?

Hi,
About the only three things that may effect a pump while using the 24 pin jumper to fake out the power supply to activate the molex power for the pump to work and fill/ leak test a water loop,

Make sure the pumps pmw 2 or 3 line is not connected to the mother board pump or fan port yet it will not work with it connected very long anyway.

Second defective pump.

Third power supply which you ruled out already.

What pump are we talking about?

DDC pumps have a tendency, slight though it may be, to occasionally delay start, intermittent refusal to start, or just straight die electrically without notice.

A D5, unless the impeller bearing is literally burned/ground out completely should always spin up with power.

Other models its much more of a crap shoot.

If the pump uses 4 pin 'Molex' power connector be sure to check the pins have not slipped and are making good contact. They are notorious for moving themselves around the blighters.

Both of my DDC pumps had issues with the molex connector. finally i got sick of the problem and cut them off and soldered on sata power connectors.

That's nice move.
You replace Molex with SATA.
Molex is not problematic because power, only because connection.
Molex never can't be durable as SATA Power Connector.

D5 pumps die very rear, but because of that many of them are loud.
It's best option if you can find original Laing D5 and someone to make you SATA Power connector nicely to crimp wire and install sleeve before install SATA Connector.
And Dazmode say that, and if he who have experience with hundreds pumps and dozens of every brand say Laing original are best we should listen.
Even if no PWM control. Set on speed 3, if D5 work properly speed 3 (3300RPM) is silent even out of case and you don't need to move control never any more.
And for DDC same, but DDC is easier to find original Laing.
DDC for me look nicer and more compact but I would never use because influence on temperature and die more often and shorter life.
