Help? EKWB/ Lian Li Distro Plate

i got the ekwb distro plate for the lian li. the ddc pump has a 4 pin connector. when plugged into the sys_pump it doesn’t power but when i plug into the cpu_fan it turns on for about 5 secs and cuts off. I have a corsair rm750x powersupply. Someone on reddit said their g1 came with a molex power cable with the pump? Would it be better if i get a 4 pin to Molex adapter and try that?Any help would be great.

PC Specs:

aorus z390 pro wifi mobo
Corsair rm750x psu

Running 6 Corsair QL120 fans

4 pin is likely PWM control and power is via the molex. Use the molex to power the Pump

I think you have the one that is designed to go directly into a fan header. No molex.
6W 4-Pin PWM FAN connector. Am I right?
Check your motherboard manual to see if you have a suitable fan header to supply the required power.

Edit: System fans/pump headers 5 and 6 are also water pump headers and speed can be controlled from the bios
Page 15 item 5
page 32 - BIOS section - M.I.T/Smart Fan 5 Settings

It's a 6w pump...it should be able to run fine off any 3 or 4 pin motherboard header.

Power it up with an adapter to ensure that it functions. If it doesn't something is wrong with the pump or there is an obstruction.

If it does power up when run off just 12v, your PWM settings for your fan headers are probably too low for the pump to start correctly.

I don't think pumps like to run dry... just in case you didn't have the system full when testing.
Should test fine in the board if fans work from ports 5 and 6
As Blameless says, make sure the header speed is turned up in the bios and that it's set to PWM.

So the system isn't full with fluid so I don't want to burn my cpu.

*note first time doing a custom loop ever. Everything is new except for fans and CPU (8700k).

I plugged it into ports 5/6 and they don't turn on at all. That's when I decided to switch the connection to the CPU_Fan connector.

There should be a water pump connection on your motherboard. I'm running a Z390-e and there is a 4 pin pwm connector to power the pump. Look through your manual and find out where yours is located. Don't just randomly plug stuff in. Never a good idea. I'm running a bitspower front distribution plate for the lian-li 011 so they are fairly similar. Again, your board should have a pump control pwm connection. Don't run it dry and try to fill it as it pumps through the system. You can't keep up and you'll wreck the pump. Use a jumper to your power supply to help with that. $3 bucks from EK and works great.

Have you been running the pump dry?

Typically you want a spare PSU that has been jumped over so you can run JUST the pump and none of the other components(CPU, Motherboard, GPU etc...) are powered up in case there is a leak.
As well as quickly being able to turn off the pump during filling, draining, bleeding.

Looks like that unit comes with a DDC style pump which I have never used but they do say in the manual to run it with fluid in the system.

Besides that EK notes to install the 4 Pin PWM header to a designated CPU or Water pump 4 Pin PWN connector on your motherboard.

Has fluid, I have to sys_pumps which is for the water pump. It doesn't work.

So from my testing.

- Bought a 4 pin to molex adapter (really only has 2 pins), tested it and pump worked but was so slow that it only got to one of the GPU tubing and just stopped.

-Also previously ordered a sata to 4 pin (which has only 2 pins). Same results as above.

Being out of a PC since last Thursday, I've moved on to the corsair pump. Thanks all who had helped
