Had a few hiccups.

First is after my loop is up, I found out my rig has a leak. As I was not home, my wife found some puddle of water on the floor and on the table. So she switched off the rig and told me when I got home.

I initially thought it might be the water pressure that caused water to be leaked from my Koolance Bay Res. So I loosened the plugs to allow air pressure to escape while waiting for my pressure valves from PPC to arrive.

But who knows, last weekend when I was about to turn in. I heard a gushing sound and I immediately look at the water level of my reservoir and found out the water level is dropping. So I immediately plug out the power cord and inspect.

I found out that there is a leak in the 240 radiator which is located at the PSU Chamber.

When this happens, then my instinct told me the previous leak (which I thought is the Bay Reservoir front port leaks) was linked to this incident and might be the same location of leak.

But I had did multiple leak test on the radiator before I had mount all of the items into my rig. So how could this happen?

After I dried up the leaks, I did a thorough check on the fittings, tubing, radiator and found no leaks. It really puzzles me. so I hand tighten all of the fittings and lay lots of kitchen towels in the case just in case it happen again.

Previously I only loosened 1 front fill port to allow pressure to ease on my bay reservoir, so I loosened 2 ports instead. I had also lowered the speed of my MCP655 pumps from 5 > 4 hoping its not the flow pressure that caused the leaks which I suspect the leaks were from the fittings.

The last leak happen on 30 June and its been almost a week since the leak and everythings seems fine. Will gonna observe the rig for the next few days before I put back my side panel.

Thanks for the compliment, I love neat rigs so I had used cable ties in all of my previous built. But of course I used them as discreetly as possible.

The issue is I dont know what is causing the leak and seems the rig been running fine for the past 6 days.

Highly suspect its due to the pressure (water/air/ or pump) that caused a leak at the rotaries fittings.

you are running a lot of rotary fittings ...? yes if so thay can be funny thay can sit one way ...no leeks.. than presher change starts one ..iv evan seen presher push coolant past a res seal and along the thread cap till it reached the top of the thread and starts to drip ......

Q? did u wet your fitting seals upon fitting or fit them dry ??

Just saw this in the water cooling thread. Just wanted to say...amazing build. Absolutely loving it. I am especially liking how you did the individually sleeved cables so neatly.

Good luck on that leaking issue.
