EK H30 Leakage?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm considering purchasing one of the EK H30 Supreme HF 360 Cu sets. I just want to know, as I'm a total watercooling n00b, what the possibility of leakage is and how to avoid this.

Well Most of the leakage probabbillity lies with the user installation, the chance of factory leaking components is somewhere in the region of >0.1%. So as long as you set it up right then you should have no problems at all.

However that being said you need to do the generall 24 hours of leak testing before you put any electricity into the components, just to make sure everything is seal nice and tight.

You can avoid it by leak testing your loop for 24 hours before you put all of the parts together. Most leakage are caused by the user's error. However, there are cases where the items are defective.
