Monday night, the water pump in my PC died.
It was making a strange noise, so in a fit of inspiration I took it and shook it a bit, hoping it was just some grit lodged in there. I guess it wasn’t, because once I did that not only did the noise stop but the water stopped flowing as well. From there, the CPU temperature on my PC started jumping about a degree a second so I figured it was a really good time to just turn the whole system off.
Of course, this now gives me the opportunity to be a bigger and better pump in it, but while I’m waiting for the parts to arrive I now have a girlie little fan on the CPU, which is annoyingly keeping the processor cooler than the old water system did (though I do admit I have the side off the case and a bunch of components left out because I know I have to pull it apart again when the new cooler components arrive.
