    I fired up my computer last night and my fucking headset is fucked. No sound in the right side, no mic either. While I'm fucking around with that the D5 water pump starts making this buzzsaw sound which was really loud. I kept an eye on the temps and they didn't change, 38C for cpu and 32C for the gpu while gaming, but that sound is usually a good indicator the pump is on its way out the door.

    I ordered a new set of headphones and am picking up a cheapo set of logitech at Best Buy on the way home tonight until then. I'm tempted to order a new D5 but I'm also pissed and am willing to let it burn itself out.

    Odd. Do self-installed pumps like Corsair or Kraken work better? Obviously not nearly as fancy, but wouldn't that do the job? I have one myself.

    This is a self installed pump and no they don't work better for my rig, those pumps are much weaker and are AIOs mine is a custom loop where the pump is s separate entity.

    And, not to brag TOO much, but mine's bigger. Oh, and it also pushes sfuff out a lot faster. That matters when you're trying to hit the bedpost from the foot of the bed.

    Nope, not even close. It's an Alphacool and I won't be using them again. The last one I had was a Swiftech and it died after about 5 years...I'll stick with them. I've got no use for major parts that are unreliable.

    I took the pump off of the pump top and it looks like the impeller bearing shattered leaving a shit ton of shavings in the bottom of the pump. And of course, nobody sells the impellers only because that would make sense so I'm glad I got a new pump.
