Liquid cooling rebuild - hose filters, pump pinout?
I am attemping to rebuild my powermac G5 LCS. It wasn’t leaking or anything, just preventive maintenance after all those years. I have the mac fully disassembled and LCS disassembled as well.
It’s deplhi model (one pump) DDC3.1. The hoses didn’t want to come off so I had to cut them and will be replacing them soon.
But I noticed there are little tiny filters on the input (maybe also on the output) of each processor block passthourgh. Are those filters necessary, or should I remove them? They are very fine, but I have a feeling they may be a little clogged after all those years.
Specially when I want to pour in this liquid: https://www.aquatuning.us/water-cooling/... - is it a good liquid? It’s colored (couldn’t get a clear one in my usual parts shop), so won’t it clog up the filters? Should I remove them?
Also the pump has DDC3.1 written on the side and after disassembly the board states Laing DDC3v20 and sticker says v 3.3. What is the pinout please? I’d like to power it from molex after all the refurbishments for 24 hours to see if it’s not leaking.
Thank you very much! :)
Is this a good question?
