Well just about 15 Minutes ago I turned on my gaming computer, Then I noticed ASUS probe making a big Fuss about the CPU temperature, So i looked through the side of my case and to My amazement There wasnt any water flowing. I was like damn I powered down right away and then instead of taking another chance i took another PC of mine opened my case on My gaming rig and Took the Molex connector from the Pump and plugged it into my other PC. Well the Pump never started up and so now Im Posting here for a solution to my problem. Do I have to buy another pump?, Is It possible to get the Broken pump functioning again? Is there a warrenty on the Pump ?. Ive had the Water coolnig system for Exactly One Year to the day now. wHAT LUCK!

Since the COOL only carries a 1 year warranty you will need to go buy another pump. Murphy's law! The pump is a DDC/Liang 12v pump. Very popular and can be found at a number of online retailers for about $75.00. The first run of COOL kits had a version of the pump that was prone to failing to start. All DDC/Liang type pumps from then on did not have this problem as the mfg redesigned the pump electronics. Also some of the newer pumps have a third speed sense wire on them so you can keep tabs of the pumps rpm with a motherboard monitoring app. Just be glad that you got some warning and were able to shut down before any permanent damage was done! One other thing, since you mentioned that your COOL kit is one year old, you might want to take a really close look at the res inlet and outlet connections. The type of res used in the COOL kit is prone to cracking at the seams around the inlet and outlet fittings causing possible leaks to develope. I have already replace the original res from my COOL kit because of cracking. Again, the type of res used by Corsair is a very common and popular res that can be found online for about $19.95 or many other suitable replacements can be found.
