Water everywhere.. :( - Page 21

post #201 of 205
Hi there,

Just a side note. With regards to tube popping off compressions (yes, it does happen), there's only 1 or 2 reasons why they do that.

Main reason:

If your pump happens to stop working (break down OR loose power connection), the water in the block will heat up within seconds and it will look for the nearest and quickest way out. The weakest link is the tube-to-fittings part. The tubing will heat up, become soft and begin to slip from the compression, ultimately water will escape from there. If you touch the tube or block, it will be very hot, probably about 70-80c.


The only 2 ways to prevent a meltdown is either to go

1. 2 pumps

and/or

2. Install a temp monitoring program to shut down the PC once any component goes >70c or so. This might help to prevent a leak.

Well XSPC said that they will replace the pump this one time..Because they usually don't replace stuff like this because of the coolant issues.

I used distilled water with sliver coil and biocide. I guess they believe it is my coolant issue. So when I get my replacement I am just using the silver coil and what every coolant they recommend.

edit: I am thinking about getting another pump with a radiator to cool everything a littler better. Extra pump would be nice, but if I get this corrosion again I'm not sure that will stop it since it still might flow through both pumps and get them stuck.

I asked their support what coolant they would recommend and that actually dropped a name: Thermochill. I guess they haven't seen any problems with that one.

Yup. That's what he recommended. I still think I'm just going to use pure distilled and the silver coil, non of the PC Coolant dead water biocide crap. I'm checking my loop every other day from now on though, and using clamps/zip ties.
