OCN FrozenQ Reservoir Owners Club - Page 104

post #1031 of 2114
Ok a bit of quick explanation to start off with. I added in the extension which of course did the trick perfectly, stopping the leak around the overly large compression fittings. I filled the Auqalis reservoir and let the water spread through the system so I could get just a bit of water into the Quad-Helix reservoir and then I tested it.

The first test ran for about a minute before a LOUD pop and the top came off the reservoir. I stopped the pumps and then grabbed the camera and set it up to record.

Please pardon the quality of this video, I was shooting it on my Panasonic Lumix and it’s the first time I have used it for video. Also I couldn’t do any editing as all my video software is on my computer which is in the video.

I tried it twice in the video. The first time the cap was on pretty good, but the second time I made sure the cap was fully seated. As you can see, after a few moments the cap comes off.

Below are some pictures I snapped of the res. In the last photo you can see the groove that the tube slides into and towards the lip of the cap, you can see the o-ring that is supposed to hold this all in place.










FrozenQ- You are going to have to do something different to secure these caps. I know I run a higher pressure system, but my setup is pretty well standard. Two MCP-655s with a Bitpower dual pump top run directly after a res (the Aqualis) then through a 360mm reservoir and into the Quad-Helix reservoir. The loop then continues through the motherboard and CPU and exits to a 420mm radiator and back into the Aqualis. After leak testing for an hour and a half now without the Quad-Helix in the loop, I am having no problems what so ever.

I will be sending e-mails, and PMs to the appropriate places to see what I can get done about this. I truly want to be able to use this res in my setup. Hell I was considering asking about having a larger one made, but first they need to be fixed (again).

i have a 400ml res version 2 i believe o ring and thread caps. i got mine about a year ago and ive had to remove the caps to change them to caps with more holes for my set up. the ONLY problem i had was the caps were on so dam well( kinda of a good thing) i have no issues with my res as long as you are not a brute the res is fine and will not break imo. im actually glad i have the threaded caps and not the new pop ones biggrin.gif. my loop has been drained a few times and still works fine alex makes great parts i believe






also made me the haunter smile.gif thanks again

Wow that looks spectacular! I am completely in favor of having threads again. The tube is pretty sturdy and like you said, if you aren't being a brute with it, it shouldn't be a problem.

Alright guys I'm about to pull the trigger on one of these res's. I'm stuck between the 250mm blue quad spiral and the 250mm double helix. Does anyone have any suggestions? I haven't been able to find many pictures of the quad up and running.

Do me a favor if it is possible. If you still have the loop taken apart or if you have access to one or both pumps; I would like you to make a very small loop using just the pump(s) and the FrozenQ reservoir. I would like to know if that mimics the problem with the res or if it is something else in the loop causing an odd problem.

It's all preference really. We can't help you in that department I'm afraid. biggrin.gif

Lol yea I had a lot to do today. I made that disappear later.

The loop is getting dyed already, Sorry. I should have the loop apart again in 3 or 4 weeks when I get the AquaComputer. I will try it then if I haven't got things resolved. I'd like to know if something else is causing it, but I HIGHLY doubt it. The everything else in the loop has worked flawlessly. All the air was out of the lines in 2 hours and everything is running silently. I have a bit of heat in the other reservoir from the pumps, but I don't have the fans running. I will be wiring up my fans to work in the next day or so.

The first time I leak tested it, it took a full minute to come off and it was loud enough to make me jump. It came off much quicker after that. The o-ring is in good condition. It could be the grooves the tube fits in just aren't deep enough.

Maybe. Could just be defective since they are tested at ~90psi to my knowledge.

Hmmm any idea what a pair of MCP-655's put out? I will have to do some research.

no where near 80~90 psi

your incoming water to your house is supposed to be ~ 80 psi ( in the us, assuming you live in a city not on well water ) so think of your hose @ full psi
