Yeah i know about the bitspower crystal link and they are nice but i don't want to have to deal with a leak because its not secure, I take my pc to my cousins house about every weekend and play games. Really don't want something to get knocked loose on the way over there.
Even a powerful pump like the 35x does not create tremendous amount of pressure. I hooked up a standard water gauge to my loop and tested the pump on its own, it barely moved the gauge. I'm sure its been tested by FrozenQ. Talk to FrozenQ support. Also, hit up the water cooling gallery thread to get more opinions. Seeing ppl use acrylic and copper tube with the same concept of sealing doesn't really surprise nor makes me skeptical if it will dislodge under the pumps pressure. If you want to test it: put the res (sans ccfl) in th sink, use some long pieces of tube to hook up the pump and place it on the counter-top, run the pump. By running the pump w/ the res only, you have the maximum amount of pressure exerted by the pump since there's no obstacles (ie blocks and rads) to go through. If it starts to leak, then I'm sure FrozenQ will take care of you.
Btw, if you secure your res properly to the case, it should be fine. Even lan party wc'ers have no trouble moving there rigs around. You can always add more brackets or make some sort of support system.
If you want to take to the extreme, use some sort of strong adhesive to permanently seal it and make it leak proof. I'm sure FrozenQ though about this concern when using this sealing method.Edited by wermad - 4/6/13 at 12:32am
