So is the lesson learned to use either compression fittings or clamps? No matter how snug things feel, I just don't trust having hose attached to barbs without even a simple clamp.
I just get worried that when the case temp increases, the hose gets softer and may move its way back on the barb enough to cause a leak... even a slow one. Just better to be safe than sorry. Plus, clamps are really cheap.
Yeah, I think this is true to. Unfortunately I took some bad advice and now I'm paying for it. Hopefully when I get home today and clean the board off and dry it it'll be good to go, if not I guess I'll get the I7 2600K and a Asus P8P67 Pro as they are both on sale at fry's today.
