Just got my xspc rasa 240 kit today, question about leak testing.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So my kit just came today, and Im not sure how to use the 24pin grounding attachment exactly. I know I put it on my 24pin to leak test, but do I remove the other 8pin power from my board during this time as well? Im assuming have everything else completely unplugged from the PSU while this is happening, correct?

Also, Im just cooling the cpu, so what would be the best order of flow from the pump? I was thinking

pump out
rad in
rad out
cpu in
cpu out
pump in

Or should it go from pump to the cpu block, then the rad?

UNPLUG EVERYTHING!!!! ESPECIALLY FROM YOUR MOTHERBOARD, YOU WILL FRY IT TO HIGH HEAVENS... ANYTHING THAT HAS A PCB UNPLUG!

The way I leak test and the way the majority of people on this board leak test is by having only the water pump connected to the PSU. You need the grounding piece so that the PSU thinks that the circuit has been completed and is connected to the MOBO.

So all you have to do is plug that 24 pin connector into the PSU and then a molex to the pump. Turn the PSU on and check for any leaks within 24 hours. If there is no leak then it should be safe to hook up other components to the PSU.

Edit: Yes, everything except the pump should be disconnected

What about flow order? Is it better to have longer distance in tubing between parts in the rig, or is the shortest route best?
