Water everywhere.. :( - Page 6

The magic of distilled water, its not conductive. Just let it throughly dry out, leave it a day or two. If you have a warm dry room in your house put the parts in there on a towel or something

The tubing used can make a huge difference here. Some tubing is much softer than others. Poor quality tubing is not a good mix for this method. I would never take the chance of no clamping of some sort on the tubing. I do not understand the logic behind it. Is it for looks? If so, get some compression fittings. Far too many variables invloved in water cooling to take unnecessary chances.
You will need to test individual components to see what survived. I would be surprised if you lost it all, but would be equally surprised if you lost nothing.
All this talk of your gear being ok because distilled is non-conductive does not take into account the corrosion, etc. This was definitely no longer pure distilled water

Did you flush your rad before installing?

That may have caused your corrosion.

Really sorry to hear about this

You can get 7/16 tubing off a barb by slitting it or letting it get really hot while cleaning a radiator with boiling water.. The tubing pops right off after getting hot enough.. Considering that most loops will see anywhere from 38c-70c for months to years, it's probably not wise to trust tubing over time when you can secure it to the point that it really never will come off

The corrosion thing is baffling though..

I can't see the pictures but if the PC was off/standby mode and you were
using 100% distilled water you will most likely make a FULL recovery. Oh, and try using rice like the other members have stated or paper
towels. Both will absorb water like a sponge!

If your loop hits 70C, something is wrong. I have had several different configurations and once I got anywhere near that, I would redesign. I once had a pair of GTS250s and a 920 on a single loop that got over 60C and I added a second rad to get it under control. 70C water cooling loop seems pointless. Get an air cooler for those temps. That would be like a +40C phase change setup... ...pointless and not worth the $$$

Thread Starter 
STOP responding if you haven't read the thread. SERIOUSLY I don't need to read nonsense. DO SOME RESEARCH.

YES it was my fault for not using clamps. BUT People use 7/16" tubing over 1/2" barbs for years without problems...I wasn't lucky enough.

I do fold 24/7 and my CPU never went above 52C and NB above 60C.

I bought better quality tubing not the one that came with the RASA kit.

I used alcohol to clean the radiator and distilled water after wards to flush it out before putting it in the loop.

I used additives and kill coil and pure distilled water. I don't know how corrosion took place. I will take the CPU block apart and snap some pics.


UGH I'm so mad, this wasn't my fault. Bad luck always comes my way.

Im also wondering how and why the corrosion took place since he used distilled water with kill coil. Can anybody explain this one?

Thats incorrect, it's conductive once it goes through that loop a few times.
