Blue Light Not Working

Recommended Posts

Very simply, the blue light on my 240v has stopped working. The unit is about a month old, and as far as I can tell is still actually working. It’s connected to the CPU cooling header on my motherboard, and is set to be running at 100% all the time. There aren’t any unusual sounds coming from it, and I can see how my CPU is cooled, which I assume wouldn’t be happening if the pump wasn’t pumping. 

 

But no blue light. 

 

Dont get me wrong, I’m not losing any sleep over the loss of a small blue light , but I’m concerned it’s a symptom of a bigger problem.

 

Any ideas?

UPDATE:

 

I saw the blue light for a couple of minutes a few weeks ago.

According to every bit of monitoring software I can find, the pump is still running at full pace. However, I'm now seeing a slow but unstoppable temperature rise while I work or play games. A handbrake encode will cause thermal throttling in a minute or two. Is the Ryzen 2700x too much heat for the Seidon 240? Is mine just not getting the heat away well enough? Whatever, I'm pretty sure that the best I can do is put off thermal throttling, the 240 doesn't seem to be enough of a cooler to stop it happening all together.
