Corsair iCUE H150i Elite Capellix [NOT WORKING]

Recommended Posts

Hello, I just finished building my new CPU using Corsair's Capellix as my cooler

Everything works fine besides the pump itself. I've connected the sata cable and for the 3 pin cable, it's either on the CPU fan or AIO pump header. Below are the full specs (parts are all new)
- Processor : Intel Core i5-13600K 3.5 GHz 14-Core
- Cooler : Corsair iCUE H150i ELITE CAPELLIX 75 CFM
- Motherboard Asus ROG STRIX B760-A GAMING WIFI D4 ATX LGA1700
- Memory : Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18
- Storage : Samsung 980 1 TB M.2-2280 PCIe 3.0 X4 NVME
- GPU : Asus DUAL OC GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8 GB 
- PSU : Corsair RM750 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX 
- CASE : Corsair 4000D Airflow ATX Mid Tower Case

I've browsed the internet for answers, I used 3 videos on a step by step tutorial on building a new pc, one of them having the same case and cooler as mine. I finished building it and there was no problems at first when i booted it up (not connected to a monitor yet). The RGB and other things were running fine, after a few seconds the pump started blinking red including the fans, I connected it to a monitor and the Processor's temperature is above 100°C shown in the BIOs.

I've tried rewiring everything, reapplying thermal paste, and rebuild it from scratch yet nothing seems to work. I've installed it on the front panel, fans infront of the radiator set as intake because the pump couldn't fit on top. Everytime i turn on the cpu (not connected to anything, just the power) the fans goes really loud and fast, shuts down after 1 - 2 minutes though. I'm starting to question if the problem isn't on me but on the pump iteself.

Feel free to ask for more details regarding my issue.
