Water everywhere.. :( - Page 4

post #31 of 205
Sorry to hear that OP. I'd never take the chance of running water cooling barbs w/o clamps of some kind. Whether it be zip ties, to full on band clamps (better than worm drives because they won't damage tubing).

Personally, I use compression fittings.

There is a good chance your equipment is ok, unless you heard a pop or arc when it happened. As others have mentioned, let it dry & try it again. Next time, clamp the connections at least.

This. Best more than two days. I hope things go well. Distilled water don't mean much once it gets into contact with the res, rad, and other components. There will always be an equilibrium of ions and solutes from the parts.

This is the reason why I use compression fittings. Also, a good idea to minimize this is not to get the exact size of tubing as your barbs. Like if you have 1/2 ID barbs, better get a 7/16 ID tubing.

Compression fittings are not without issues as well I have had mine cut the tubing in half.

if it was 7/16 on 1/2 barbs then i don't know how it popped out... i recently shipped a case with water in the res on 7/16 tubing with 1/2 barbs with no clamps and it arrived fine... nothing spilled

maybe use clamps or compression fittings next time to make double sure..

also i hope everything works ok.

This and the corrosion had to do something with it. My guess.

I heard stories of this happening but I never thought it was so common. I'll really stick to fan cooling now.
Do you have flood insurance by any chance?

EDIT: Oh the computer was off you say? Then just let it dry and dont use it. Maybe try the rice burial technique

I used 7/16" over 1/2" barbs. That's why I didn't use clamps, compression fitting or zip ties. It was tight..very tight.

But the side it popped off was all corroded on the inside of the barb..I will post pics soon.. Not sure what happened.

Unfortunately the PC was on. It is turned on 24/7 for folding. And the monitor had no signal..and I did hear noise from video cards.

I am not sure how long, maybe about 5 minutes it was turned out while water leaked.

I will let it dry for longer than 24 hours, once I get home Ill throw it in rice..but rubbing alcohol usually replaces the water molecules and evaporates quickly tis the reason why I wiped everything with it.

That sucks bro, I hope everything is ok. So the corrosion was on the inside of the barb like you posted meaning where the water runs through? If thats the case, I dont see how that could make the hose pop off, but I could of read wrong.

Trust me I will use clamps every time now.

Ouch!

Sorry to hear that man!

I don't use clamps either, but I can't even pull off my pipes with quite a lot of force, seems odd that they've just popped off.

I've taken my PC 1-200 miles up and down the UK for LANs too, and never had any issues.

I know they were very tight to take off other than the corroded ones. So do you think heat plus corrosion which I still don't understand how it happened, expanded the tubing
