Good to hear all is well. And yes, do keep a watch on all the connections (I put paper towels underneath and around each connection).
Edit: And yes, 7/16 tubing over 1/2 barbs are great; I've never had a leak that way.
As long as you use distilled water, the chances of actually damaging your board and components in the event of a leak is small.
I've had distilled water ooze (slowly) out of my fittings and form a pool around my CPU socket, NB and DIMM slots. I didn't realize it for at least a good half-hour since I was busy benching.
When I did notice it, all it took was a few paper towels, fixing the connections, and everything was back to working condition.
I'm sure being on a tech bench helped since everything is horizontal.Edited by veblen - 10/23/11 at 10:54am
