When can i leave my computer on overnight again (Worried about leaks)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,
So after my res/pump leaked I got it replaced and have now had my loop up and running for 48 again.
I have had the pump going for maybe 12-15 hours of that 48 hours with no leaks to my knowledge. How long should I wait till I leave my computer on for 24 hours straight again. I am still worried about leaks because of the first pump having a crack in the thread. (even though it has been replaced)

If I have had 48 hours with no leaks, should I be ok to leave downloads on tonight? Or should I keep leak testing for awhile?

Sorry for the stupid topic, but I'm quite paranoid

Let it run for 24 hours (including your 15-18 you've already done) and it should be good to go thumb.gif

This, But I heard a great tip for leak testing. Jumper your power supply, and un plug all the main components that have electricity going to them except the pump. So if it DOES have a leak, It wont ruin your machine. and you can run it for a day and see.

I ran mine for 48 hours leak test, since I leave my rig on 24/7.. every now and then, a small leak pops up after a week or so, but this is very rare.. most likely a barb has gotten loose, or a previous clamp was not tight enough, it's just a matter of luck really.. There is nothing you can do but try your best..

run for 48 hours and peek in your case with a flash light and check every barb, corner, nook and crannie, look for water spots.. I got lucky and found one that was dripping right under my bottom GPU after 10 days.. There was no water or puddle, dust on the bottom was unbothered, just a small water bubble popping right near the tube and barb.. Tightened it and ran for 3 months with no problems, took it apart to investigate a plasticizer issue which is not related to this topic.

I've never done leak testing before and run my computer 24/7. Either it's the careful attention to detail I put into installation of parts or I'm just lucky.

I ran mine for 2 min max saw no leaks then let it run all the time.

if you take your time and do the job correctly it should not be a problem but you do get problems at times just because.

but yes the guys keep everything unplugged from the board hdd's etc... and just give power to the wc kit and let that run for a few hours and then look for leaks. just make sure EVERYTHING is dry as you do not want to think it that a leak or not when testing and looking.

Same here and i have redone my loop over 8 times. I use compressing fittings and just check for leaks 10-20 mins after water is moving. Only once i got a leak from the G 1/4 thread i did not tighten it too much. Leaks only happen if there is a user error with installation or forgot something so it most likely immediate. Other leaks are probably cause from defects or damages to parts.
