XSPC Rasa Leak

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys n gals,

I recently just purchased and installed a XSPC rasa 750, RX360 Rad, into my system. I purchased the kit from FrozrnCPU.com, Everything was going good and the install was very easy.... While i was leak testing i noticed very small drips of water building up on the side of the water block, where the copper piece meets the water block... I instantly thought it was the o-ring or the screws came loose during install, neither were the case though, the o-ring was placed good and the screws where tight... So i took the system out and hooked it up outside of the case to further diagnose the leak... More outside testing revealed that the little drips of water are coming out of the corner of the water block by one of the screws, that tighten the copper piece to the block...

So my question for y'all is, what steps do i take from here?
Should i wrap the screws wit Teflon tape?
should i contact frozencpu for a replacement or replacement parts?


I took some pics of the leaking, and will post when i get back from store


UPDATE: Looks like there was a blemish in the o-ring i repositioned it and reseated it. I'm currently running another leak test outside of the system and will report back with my findings..

Thanks so much for all your replies this community is GREAT!!

Looks like the seals inside of the block were not put in right you can either take it apart and try to fix it yourself or ask xspc or frozen to rma it and give you a new block.

Most likely Could be a crack, ive seen cracks in EK blocks before. Hasn't damaged any of your hardware has it?

Open it up and take a look. From here it looks like it was dropped and the corner got creased... Cosmetic defect. Anyways its acetal, it's not gonna crack like acrylic from just that. Acetal is highly resistant to stress cracks and that right there is hardly under any stress that might form a crack.

Thanks for the quick response,

The leak was very slow so i caught it instantly without any damage to any other hardware, thank god, lol

I'll re seat the o-ring inside of the block and see if that fixes the problem...

there doesn't look like there is any cracks or dings inside or out of the block that's why i was a little boggled on what causes this.

Thanks again...

I think someone mentioned it, but see if there's a similar dent or impression where the o-ring goes. Btw that o-ring is really, really thin so be careful you don't snip it.

Probably a small sliver of acetal that got trapped between the o-ring and mating surfaces. Clean it out and inspect really good, should be perfectly fine after that.thumb.gif
