I'm not sure if the pump isn't working or if I did something wrong. When I turn on the system, the pump seems to be spinning and working, but the liquid doesn't move throughout the pipes.

The inlets and outlets on your loop are probably jumbled. I don't see a continuity of the tubing/fitting going from the pump to the CPU, which would explain why there's no fluid flowing through the top half of the distro plate/res. In fact, drain the liquid in the loop, connect the CPU's lower tube to the lowest point of the distro as a test.

On second thoughts, you should've done a first run to inspect which ports are connecting to which end, to ensure you have continuity.

So you're telling me that I should relocate the cpu pipes to where the gpu ones are supposed to be? Because the plate identified the 4 spots that are closed off are for the gpus. I was a little worried if my loop won't work because I don't have a watercooled gpu.

That is not plumbed correctly. You have nothing coming from the output of the pump so the pump is deadheaded.

Since you are not using a gpu you will need to make a bridge/pipe that goes from the one of the bottom gpu ports to one of the top ports so it will flow.

Hopefully the pump has not been damaged as deadheading a pump causes excessive heat and pressure which leads to damage bearings and seals.

Waited for another fitting to come in, but you was right. That fixed everything and tbe pump runs fine. Thanks a ton!
