hi, i have a P5K SE Motherboard, with c2q q9550 cpu. after installing water cooling, pc wont turn on. Fans does spin for a half second, if i dont plug the 12v rail everything works fine. I've checked theres no leaks and defective hardwares, cpu pins in good condition.

please help

CPU block isn't seated correctly and shutting down due to thermal? Are you sure your pump is powered and pushing coolant? If it isn't cooling your CPU, a waterblock isn't a very good passive cooler.

What WC setup did you install?

Okay, lets get past the 10 questions. Please post the list of parts you bought, and post pics of the setup.

You probably mismounted something, have massive air in the loop, or some other issue. Since you bought the parts from a real store I guess they should be able to help you out hoprefully.

I give up. Best of luck.

CPU waterblock. Made by Bob? Fred?

Pump. Nice if you gave a link so we could look at the specs.

Fans? Ambient temps?

You prolly installed it wrong.

I would recommend buying a pump with external power, that way you don't have to use up power from the PSU. Unless you want to buy a new power supply with high wattage and amps, and that would cost a nice sum.
