I know my last 250mm one had some some or soft adhesive to it. Might be some medium glue to keep it place. If you're brave enough, twist it counter-clockwise. If you don't want to risk it, just leak test it outside your system. plug it up and fill it with water thumb.gif

Nope, no glue, no adhesive, no threading, just o-rings. and how i found this out was trying to loosen the fillport to leak test it and the hole top just spun.. so my thinking is *** is this all about, go to investigate and realize there's nothing holding it together but o rings.











Is this normal?

I would say that is a new revision. Gen VI, IIRC. I have heard of a lot of users having problems with their threaded caps. Maybe this is to address that problem. But I have no proof of this and is only speculation.

Reminds me of a giant Bitspower SLI fitting. I would like to see more engagement and maybe two O-rings for added protection and holding power. Coming from Alex, I would trust it and put it right into my build. But as always do a good leak test.

Not sure on most of those topics. Alex wouldn't sell a bad product so I would judge him on his design. He screwed up a custom reservoir for me and turned around and ordered another flask just so he could do it right, free of charge. thumb.gif

If anyone is curious on ordering custom reservoirs, it's mighty fun.

Mind you it will probably paint over and acid etch in the final biohazard symbol to black.

If i hold the base of the res on a table i can move the top end of the tube back and forth about a 1/2 inch. The lips on the end caps where the o-ring is seated are not even the same size.

There is no way i'm going to put this rickety mess full of water inside my pc.

I really hope I got a bad one or maybe it was rushed out b4 it was finished coz as it sits right now its garbage, or a desk lap at best, i'll see about getting in contact with alex and see if this is how its supposed to be.

Did it pass the leak test? Looks like you ran some liquid in there but you haven't said if it does leak. Also, look up "Bitspower Crystal Links". Its pretty much the same concept to seal wink.gif Also, why or how is the cap gonna move inside your system?

I filled it up with water and no, it did not leak, but there was no added pressure from a pump, that's what i was getting at with the seals.

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.
