CPU issue possbile could be psu
Hello i recently installed my corsair 850 W psu but after doing so it took me around 3 hours to get my pc to even boot and the cause from what i could find is i change the 3 pin power connection for my corsair h60 it then decided to boot up but made an insanely loud noise that was coming from the block that i assume to be the pump i then changed the 3 pin location it was connected too but to no avail when i turned my pc on it booted fine but within 1 minuet it was as loud as can be so i opened up core temp and it was reading 67-8 degrees bear in mind this is up from my usual 18 degrees so i changed the 3pin to a molex and to no avail it is still loud and my temps are high i can only assume that my pump in my block has failed
Who should i contact and what do you think the issue is?
(Side note my mobo has a 8 pin connection how ever i was only using 4 pins now im using 8 this could be a factor but i have no idea)
Cheers - silver

Silverstormz, Maybe I am misunderstanding you. If I am not mistaken, the Corsair pump is powered by a 4 pin molex connector from the PSU, it has a 3 pin connector to plug into the CPU fan header on the motherboard. The 3 pin fan connector is to keep your motherboard from not detecting a CPU fan and also to monitor the pump speed. Make sure the 4 pin power connector is plugged in to the PSU and that the fans on the radiator is running. If I misunderstand you, please advise. The pump has to run 100% all the time. Also, if your board has and 8 pin ATX connector, use the 8, not just 4.
