I used to be able to do mine with a finger nail.

Anything that you can turn it with really. So you know, it's a very smooth thing to turn - if you're having difficulty, make sure you aren't trying to turn it the wrong way.

That sounds a bit stupid . Mine goes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 as you'd expect.

Despite the order that's labelled, I'd imagine the real settings are still in order, otherwise the manufacturers would have really had to go out of their way to screw it up lol.

Oh yeah, and I use a flat head screwdriver.

Wait, so they are labelled in order, you just thought the line could point in both directions? I'm confused.

How much power does a d5 pump have? enough to pump from the front drive Bay Area to top quad rad? My d5 is pushing at a extremely slow rate

D5s are pretty much the strongest pumps people commonly use for watercooling. My loop consists of two radiators and three blocks, the pump is on the second lowest setting, and my temps are perfect. I've tested it on the lowest setting and it still flows fine (I have a flow indicator) but I can't hear it on setting 2 so I might as well keep it on the higher setting.

Unless you have an insanely complex loop you're never going to run into a problem with a D5.
