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


Yes I do, running a lot of rotaries. but I think the 240rad which is at the PSU chamber is the one that leaks if fittings are the culprit. I did not wet my fittings before fitting them. I fit them dry.

o.k well id say if u get the time to drain.. grab some new seals for the fittings on the 240 rad..

having as many fittings as you do ! a seal should be on hand smile.gif

get a cup of soapy water.. dish detergent even but something like natural soaps are proffered!

dip the thread end just past the seal and then screw it in smile.gif it tends to make less chance of leeks.

and u will notice it tightens smoother as well .

I my self use Koolance premix coolant. as it has a oily residue and i have it on hand biggrin.gif

Thanks for the suggestion. Will do it when I drain my loop.

But can u suggest what additives should i put in my loop?

All of my blocks are Nickel (EK, Bitspower, Koolance). I bought Deadwater (PT Nuke), and also Silver Koil. So what do you suggest?

I am runnning my loop with distilled water with mayhem dyes currently. Was afraid of the EK EN plating issues so had not add any of the additives yet

You've got some tubing showing, needs more fittings.

I experienced another leak last night and I managed to caught the culprit.

Its not the pump pressure (yet to cfm as I had lowered my pumps speed to 4 and doing test now), not the fittings, not the radiator but its my Koolance RP450X2!

I found a puddle of water on my desk and floor and began to tear the parts apart. Using a dry kitchen towel I tried to touch and check which area is wet then I found out there are traces of coolant on the roof of the HDD Cage which the only component is the Koolance RP450X2. So I removed the whole of bay reservoir and true enough there are a puddle of water on the DVDRW which is beneath the bay res.

Lucky for me to place the DVDRW there as without the DVDRW, water would have leaked into the HDD Cage and fried my HDDs and SSDs.

After removing the Bay Res, I checked for leaks then I found out it is leaking from the metal ring which tightens the pump to the bay res. It was not fully tighten. So right now its back to observation but at least I know non of my other parts are the causes and its the Koolance that is leaking.

Been 5 days since the last leak which was found to be the bay res is the culprit. I had adjusted the both pump speed back to maximum which is 5. So far no leaks was spotted.

Just an update, I gotten a very very good deal for a Seasonic X 1250 Gold which is a full modular PSU. As I am thinking if I should get another pc of 7970 to do tri fire. But If I were to get the 3rd pc of 7970, I am afraid my temps will go up significantly as I have a total of 6 blocks in my rig currently.

Still considering if its a go. But while still deciding if I should go for it, I am sleeving the new PSU cables which is Pain in the Ass..... The pins are not 1 to 1, and a few of them have two pins in one hole which is pretty tricky.

sleeving is a PITA. i agree. but the look on the end is totally worth it! hopefully everything turns out alright man!

I really like the build, nice work. One question, with all of the 90 degree elbows and compression fittings, have you calculated how much drop in pressure you may have due to the restrictions?

I am not sure how much pressure drops as I have two MCP655 pumps running at full speed. And in martinslab, I believe they had done a test that it takes 30 X 90D rotaries to have a increment on 1 Degree Cel.

Currently without OC, my 7970s are 36 - 41 Idle and 48 - 52 at load. So I believe the temps are really acceptable.biggrin.gif
