I was working on the system without any problems yesterday but when I came to boot up the system to take some B-Roll shots for the Part 4 video I initially noticed that the coolant had changed colour from bright white to a light blue colour.

When powering on the system I noticed that the flow meters were not moving but power was still being supplied to the pumps from the PSU. I proceeded to drain the CPU loop to investigate the issue and found that when disassembling the pump the impeller was seized in position.

I managed to free up the impeller manually and when the pump was completely disassembled it was clear that a build-up on the bearing had seized the pump impeller enough to stop it from spinning up when power was supplied from the PSU.

Whether this is due to the coolant or the debris in the radiators I am not sure, However, I did flush the radiators completely before building the system. This is the first time I have used this brand of coolant so I can’t comment on its long-term performance or if this has happened to me before. It seems that the issue can be fixed by cleaning up the pump, flushing the system through and replacing the coolant.
