Uncommon issue: Tubes popping off compression fittings - Page 2

If the waterblock does not get that hot it will not reflow. I have done this 3x for 3 different indigo applications. And when water is not flowing, the waterblock will get to 70+C quickly, since no cooling at all is taking place since no flow. With water flowing, it would never get that hot, even with cpu 100C. Throttling keeps the cpu temps at 100C or below, and when thottling fails, thermatrip shutsdown the computer.

But no tubes pop off the compression fittings, nor would I expect them too.
Hi!

Good to hear that the tubes didn't pop off on yours. Mine did however , I guess it's different strokes for different folks.

For the water to reach that 70-80 degree C mark, your CPU would have to be at an extraordinary high temperature much beyond that. I don't see the computer, as a whole, continuing to function given that.

Yep, it's pretty easy to route the rpm sensor to your mb these days right OP?

That is true with the pump running. With the pump off, the waterblock will reach 70C quickly since no moving water to cool it. If it didn't indigo extreme would be impossible to apply. I can put my calibrated fluke thermocouple on waterblock again when have the chance...and get a pic, did that before with realtemp screencapture when reflowing indigo 1st time ? year or 2 ago.

oops, sorry bout that, my bad. I did not realize it actually happened to you, from 1st post just thought you were arguing theoretically. Out of curiosity were you using thicker tubing, like 3/8 ID, 5/8 OD, or thinner tubing. I use thicker and my compression fittings screwed all way down.

I play Battlefield BC2 every day and have never had a crash with AIDA64 running. It is, by far, the best monitoring/alerting program I have used. Its predecessor (Everest) had issues with crashing on some GPU's in multiple configurations (had to do with a built in feature to ATI cards that was easily disabled with a registry hack). Problem went away with AIDA.

Hi!

No probs. I'm on 1/2ID 3/4OD Primochill.

Compression tubes popping,
EK blocks gunking,
Rasa pumps exploding...


Man, the week I want to start water-cooling and all these disaster threads just seem to highlight themselves.

It's a good thing I tend to ignore bad news

I got myself an aquaero 5 and flow meter so I should be able to shut the computer down if the flow goes below a certain number.

Thanks again for the reply! I'm going to check it out

Yeah, it's not going to happen. The computer will thermal throttle first and shut itself off. I've had pumps quit working before and without temp monitoring programs the rig just powers down to save itself when temps his 115C on the gpus and 100C on the Cpu. If a rig can get hot enough to pop a tube off of a compression fitting it would be mine. Only way that's going to happen is with insane pump pressure, ie 8 or more D5 pumps in serial. Even when tubing is that soft it won't slip from a compression fitting if properly tightened, especially with no flowrate. The expansion of the water would be equalized throughout the loop and unless boiling (which the computer would die first) should not have rapid enough increases in pressure to do so. Sounds like trolling to me.
