Laing MCP355 Heat!

i was just testing my swiftech apogee gtz for leaks with different barbs on and so i just hooked it up to a pump/res with no radiator out of the case and everything, left it running for a while and everything is now boiling!

got a couple of comp fittings on the block and theyre absolutely piping. never knew how much heat these things produce

surely this can't be good for cooling?

The same thing would happen to your car if you didn't have a radiator and fan. If the water isn't being cooled somehow then why do you expect it to keep your temps down?

Thats not right dude the pump should never create that much heat. Run it again and tell me if the pump gets too hot to hold in your hand if it does you may need to ask for an RMA from the retailer you bought it from.

Would be a good way to test. And now that I get what your saying, yea that's a bit weird. I guess the pump motor is getting too hot? Maybe not enough lubrication on the parts inside?

Did you hook up the other pump first to see what happens?
