Ok my galaxy dxx 850 is fine cause the 9 fines, 2 HDD's, and cold cathodes all power up. In fact the PSU will start up with just one fan.

I went with two loops cause I didn't want to overload one. I've got e6700 and an 8800 GTX on one and NB and 4 gigs of OCZ flex on the other. I may add more down the road such as second GPU.

I haven't given up yet, I'm still working on it.

Good - sorry about my rant. Your first reply gave me the idea that you gave up on the pumps.

Have you checked the pumps' potentiometers?

I find it pretty hard to believe that you got TWO bad MCP655s at the same time. Overall it's a very reliable pump. There's got to be another explanation. Have you run them dry? If that's the case, then that's probably why they won't start. If not, have you tried forcing water through them while you start them?

Ok issue resolved. Swifttech just called me and it turns out whoever wired the pump put the wires on the wrong side of the molex connectors. Apparently I'm not the only one who's had this problem recently. The wires were setup on the red side of the molex when they're supposed to be on the yellow side. My pumps work fine and I can continue with my completion. YAHOO!!!

Bad wiring on BOTH pumps. Not bad. Show us some pics of that double loop.
