    Thx. I think I'll hold off on buying a full backup pump, these things can last years. If one goes down I'll just limp along on my second one for a few days until a new one arrives. If I find just a cheap rotor though, that's a different story...

    Thx, where'd u see a new D5 for $70?
  • A
    Already did that. I have a new, never used replacement D5 in there to replace the damaged pump. I'm simply thinking about how to make the damaged pump whole to have another backup on hand now. Would prefer to just buy a new rotor, but haven't...

    It looks like what's in this link. I don't trust aliexpress at all, but that's the right replacement part...

    It's still there and when I put a new impeller on it spins fine. By new impeller I mean I swapped a good one over to try it out from one of my good D5 pumps. What was worn from my dry run was the impeller bearing itself.

    Alright I disassembled the pump/radiator. The bad pump clearly had the impeller rubbing against the side. The good pump had the impeller rotating perfectly centered. I replaced the bad pump with my spare, made sure to put plenty of water in...

    Alright you guys have convinced me, I'll probably just stop being lazy and take it down right now. Also getting a 5900x Tuesday, could wait for that, but I think I can just pop the waterblock off the cpu, put the new one in without disconnecting...

    I have a second pump in there, the flow won't stop even if the damaged pump stops completely. That's one of the reasons I got a dual-pump design, so I know there's always one going if one suddenly dies. I'm just wondering if the damaged pump...

    I actually have a spare D5 that I've had for a few years (warranty replacement, but while I was waiting I bought a new one). I'm just hoping not to rebuild my loop for a bit. Waiting for an EVGA 3080 hydrocool to become available, probably in...

    It spins, it pumps, just at setting 5 my case vibrates. At 3, I can't feel the case vibrating.

    I was rebuilding my loop and thought it was a bright idea to keep the D5 running while the reservoir was empty and dump water in. I have a dual D5 pump setup. Well, the case kept rattling after that, and I eventually realized it was all from...
