Pump XC7 MELTING! Help!


Recommended Posts



Since I installed my system half a year ago I had no issues whatsoever.

Until yesterday night when one of my two XD5-pumps started to melt at the top where the black lid with the two openings is located. It started to smell really bad and I directly took the system off of electricity.

Started my system this morning again and right away (!!!) the pump continues to melt and fume.


Help, what is this? I have already sent an RMA to Corsair.


My system:

Corsair Obsidian 1000d

MSI MEG Godlike Z490

Intel i9-10900k

2 x ASUS ROG strix 2080ti in SLI

64 GB RAM G.Skilll Trident Z

Samsung EVO970 1TB

WD black SN750 500GB

Seagate IronWOlf 10GB

Win10 vers 2004 (updated to last official update)

Logitech mouse, keyboard and webcam


The processor and graphics cards have their separate watercooling loop, like Corsair shows when you build a custom loop on their homepage. I did exactly as they show using only Hydro X parts, even the XC7 for processor and the graphics card custom coolers.
