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.
Hi fat italian stallion,

Not trolling at all. It happened on my rig. I am glad it didn't happen to yours.

If you don't buy it, it's alright with me. Just wanted to let other folks know about this issue.
