This, pretty much.
P.S, if you do decide to run without the pump, can you film it so we can see? I've always wanted to see a CPU block rupture due to pressure of the steam inside... biggrin.gif

cpu block rupturing? I believe thats a myth. Although its possible that the tubing might burst.

Just make a res outside your case out of a tupperware container or something. (if you have any extra tubing). Like this:

338


I guess just use duct tape to secure the tubing

mad.gif I wanted to see it burst...

On a more serious note, that would be a good idea, provided he didn't knock it over.

Haha, out of luck for all of you.

I snipped the zip ties that were completely securing the reservoir up (it's held by clamps, but I don't trust those) and checked the back of the reservoir. Bingo.

Found about a 1cm fracture on the back of the reservoir not clearly visible unless you put something behind it to make it show up. I neglected to silicone this area because I deemed it "unreachable" and saw the droplets of water closer to me. Needless to say I pulled it out and siliconed that side up too. I waited for it to dry and then secured duct tape to a three square inch area around the fracture. I filled it up again and I am hoping this will hold until I can get some more equipment in about a month.

Thanks for the help - but no steam damage shall be done. ^_^ Back down to my 28 GPU and 21 CPU idles. <3

So, to be clear, the difference between a 1000 dollar CPU burning up and water flooding the case holding very high end, expensive equipment is some duct tape and some silicone? I'll monitor your posts for the next month to see the "OMG MY PC IS FRIED" threads.

The res was leaking before and the computer was fine. Besides, the res probably isnt even close to the motherboard.

Hmm, if that's the case, then no. The reservoir is completely separate from all of the "electrical" components of the machine with no chance of "leaking" onto any components. smile.gif Pretty smart, eh?

If you had said "So, to be clear, the difference between water leaking out of your reservoir is some duct tape and some silicone?" then I would have answered yes. However, there was no sign of a leak last night which leads me to believe that this just may allow me to hold off until the new reservoir arrives.

EDIT: Just saw this. Winner!
