most people think that the most likely spot for a leak would be the actual hose on the barb, but all of my leaks have come from lack of tightened down fittings, i've never had an actual hose leak before

and to curb the 'noob' comments, they were fittings in an area of my build that I couldn't fit my hands to tighten them all the way, I actually had to completely redesign my loop and orientation solely because of the fact that it was impossible to tighten the fittings lol

Yeah I think that would be worst case scenario. Really hoping it is just the fitting itself and not the block. I guess if it is the block then I hope performance-pcs will let me send it back if I can't find a quick fix for it.

I am sure you are going to find out which one is the offender soon enough...

Well I swapped out the compression fittings, hopefully that was the issue and not the cpu block. Time for leak testing again. Crossing my fingers this time

Well it has been runnning since yesterday evening and I went home for lunch and still no leaks. Hopefully it stays that way and I can finish putting together after work. I was also thinking of painting those silver fan grills on the inside of the case to an emerald green to match the dye and using a green LED in the raystorm block. Not sure if that would end up with too much green though for my tastes. Anybody have a suggestion or pic of a similar build. Doesn't have to be green necessarily, just something with those parts all the same color or something. Thanks

Leak testing is done and I have everything put together and running. I must admit build quality in this case is fantastic, but a few modern touches are missed. Cable routing leaves a bit to be desired but I have an idea for a mod that should solve that problem. Hopefully can get to it this weekend. The emerald green dye looks fantastic. Pics coming whenever my wife gets home with the camera.
