Watercooling parts Checklist/ Questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey you guys. I've been looking to get water cooling for some time now and you guys have helped alot, but I still have some questions.

1.What do you guys use to power your loops for leak testing? Do you buy an external molex power supply or just use an adapter with your power supply.

2. if it leaks(plan on using distilled) is there a good chance that the parts that got water on them are going to break.

Here are my parts. Does it look good?

EK-Supreme HF High Flow - CPU Water Block "Easy Mount" - Copper/Acetal

XSPC RX360 Extreme Performance Radiator

Laing D-5 with ek top

EK multioption 250 advanced

bitspower matte black compression fittings

primochill red tubing

Gentle Typhoon 1850 rpm

Distilled Water/Pt nuke (probably with mayhems red dye)

Thanks Guys

1) Check this out: http://www.overclock.net/faqs/96712-...upply-psu.html

or buy one of these: http://www.xoxide.com/atxpowersupply-bypassadapter.html

2) From my understanding distilled water becomes conductive quite fast especially when exposed to metals. Damaging your parts is a possibility. My suggestion is to set down plenty of paper towels where leaking might occur when you bleed your loop.. Good luck

24 hours should be more than plenty. After that, I'd say you're good to go.
