Your loss. I've ran watercooling for 3 years, this is the first problem I've ever had with it. So far, I don't think anything has been killed.

Risk vs. reward.

Hope it survives. Like others have said, make sure it is completely dry before running it again.

Maybe if it survives your should name it "Noak's Ark"....

Haha, it is smile.gif I like the name as well, or else I could call it the TItanic

Its good to hear that you have ordered compression fittings.
Ive build 2 systems, or rather loops with compression fittings and never had a leak, not even leak tested it. Thats how good they are (atleat the bitspower ones tongue.gif)

Anyway like above posters said, silca gel or rice and let it dry for a few days if possible. Good luck.

even smaller tubing without clamps is asking for trouble.

and he wasn't using clamps because of looks like everybody else who doesn't use clamps.

Everything looks fine actually, I wouldn't worry yet. Keep it off for at LEAST ~24 hours (yes, seriously) so ALL of the water dries. If you have a blow-dryer or something you can also speed up the drying process a little bit, etc.

well i dont need the best cooling in the world tongue.gif i just need something that keeps my system below the max temp while overclocked lol. i agree custom loops look great, but i wouldnt even know where to begin if i made one, plus id rather have all my stuff covered if anything were to happen.

I'm going to take a guess that it's because you run with absolutely no form of clamp or safety on those barbs at all.

Please tell me i'm wrong. Because frankly, i think it's completely ridiculous people do such a thing in the first place, this being the primary reason.


Also, anyone who thinks distilled water won't be conductive is a fool. Granted, pure water isn't, but it's near impossible to keep water "pure" without any form of cross contamination, either from the lining from tubing/waterblocks, and even from the air. So a "Non-conductive" fluid just isn't going to happen. Heck, you could buy the purest liquid in the land and i guarantee that as soon as you open the bottle, it's contaminated - assuming it being sat on a shelf hasn't already done so.

Personally, i just buy a bottle of ready mixed antifreeze (For motors) and chuck that in my loop. It's easily accessible from most garages. I have a sensitive nose, too, and if there's a leak, i'll smell the antifreeze often before i see it.

I gotta admit, i'm pretty disappointed with some of the advice i'm seeing on OCN as of late.

Nothing wrong with watercooling provided you take the proper cautionary measures. Be Proactive, not reactive. IE: put some bloody clamps on barbs or use compressions. Just common sense.


Anywhoo, let everything dry off for a while. Hardware is pretty resilient (moreso than people give credit). Give it a day or two at least before attempting to test any components.

hmmm, so if i get a leak with a custom loop, and kills my board, processor, gpu, and power supply (probably more) i cant RMA any of it and im just out a computer.
sorry but im not taking that risk. i would rather have something thats fully covered by warranty, and will get replaced if anything happens.
(i have bad luck, so something usually does)

ACTUALLY, it turns out the one piece of tubing that came lose was 1/2" tubing, not 7/16ths like the rest of my loop.

I've ran it without clamps for years, this is my first ever problem. Not to say its a wise decision, but it isn't something you 100% NEED for every loop.
