awhile back(about a yr and a half) I purchased a computer from ibuypower(which I regret ) that had an Aquagate Mini 80mm Water cooling system in it. I sent the system back because the MB had malfunctioned. They put in a new Motherboard and ever since Ive gotten my system back my Water cooling has not been working. My CPU's temperature is sitting in the 70-80 C temperature which is way too hot.
I recently opened the case to feel the tubbing to see if I could feel or hear any watery sound in the tubing or in the system at all and I couldnt hear a thing. When it WAS working I constantly heard a "swishy" sound in it and it made me feel good knowing it was working and the temps were in the low 30's. I also noticed that when it WAS working that the tubing was NOT hot. Now its really hot to touch. I think when they swapped out the water cooling and placed it on the new MB, Somehow the liquid got removed, atleast I think from what I can tell. Now, instead of completely replacing the system with a regular air fan, I wish to see If I can get this up and running again.
Any suggestions or any help as to figure out how to find out whether or not theres liquid inside. Whether or not the pumper is busted and isnt working, and how I add more liquid to the tubing. This is my first computer having water cooling in it and if I need to have coolent added(which Im highly sure I do), I will be taking it into a nearby computer shop(might be bestbuys geeksquad).
Any suggestions on whats going on? Anythings appreciated.
