Need help from Laing D5 Owners RPM Wire

Okay, so I recently came across a great deal on some extra water cooling parts. I got a 120mm Black Ice Rad, an older Danger Den CPU block, a DD single bay reservoir, some 1/2in barbs, and a "broken" D5 pump for $45. After inspecting the pump it appears that the only problem was a contact that had come loose on the large capacitor and the RPM sensor wire had fallen off. I resoldered the capacitor contact and the pump operates fine now, but I cannot for the life of me determine where the blue RPM wire should be soldered on. I know it is not essential, but since I have everything out, I figured I might as well try to repair it. If anyone could please point out where the wire should go, I would be very appreciative.

  1. Does the wire have any solder on it that would tell you it was previously soldered to a point of contact.

    Yes, there is solder on the tip of the wire. I can't find any place on the PCB that looks like something detached from it though.
  3. Maybe it was soldered someplace near where the other wires are.

    It's a feature that anyone with a D5 can actually add if an RPM/Tach wire isn't present. I've heard of people doing it, but most either just buy it outright with the tach wire present.

    Here's a link with some photos/discussions of a guy wanting to add the functionality to his D5, but it should be the same to replace yours that disconnected. The images aren't superb, but should give you a good idea of where to start.
