Thanks for your reply! I'll try that; I'm still within return window but I'd rather avoid the hassle.

Just thinking out loud here, but do you think it is OK to do the test *without* actually hooking the cooler to the CPU?

What I have in mind is to do everything else - connect the power to a different SATA line, the fans to the splitter, the USB head if needed, and the pump to AIO_PUMP - but keep the current (functioning) fan on the CPU, and just leave the cooler on the side. If needed I can even heat it with a hair dryer or something to see how it reacts.

Then, if it is working (not blinking red, and - I guess - making some noise or vibration to confirm that the pump is running) I can order thermal paste and do the swap. Otherwise I will just send back the unit.
