Aw man...the improvement in the way the loop looks is amazing. Looks incredible! I'm going to give the crystal links a try.

If you want to see what the inside of the rotary looks like...follow the quote in my sig for Axis24. He sacrificed one FOR SCIENCE so we could see what was inside.

ok.... so im a little confused why your acrylic tube hardlining gave you such an uneven mount preasure... i have done acrylic tubing builds in the bast (though i will admit not many), but i have never run into this problem so long as all my tubes are the correct length... would you please explain why you need a light mount for your hard lining to work?

I was disappointed that I couldn't make it work, but I am hoping that someone comes along and gives some tips on how to make it more user friendly for my type of situation. But yea, it is a bit scary! haha.
Thanks Mandrix, yea, I have not had another one leak, so I guess I got unlucky. I am running the computer right now, no leaks @ 15 hours, so I think we are ok.
Oh yes, it almost was. I mean, really I'm pretty lucky. I had a leak in the BEST place possible. On the radiator, away from all electronics. Thanks Khepira.
Well, in this case, it had nothing to do with the installation. This actually wasn't a dual rotary, but a single. I actually have many dual rotaries in the build, and have never had a problem with them.
The picture is bad, but you can kind of see- it is just a rotary that goes into the 'TII' joint. Here is the culprit-
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_393_611_629&products_id=24848&zenid=249a2985ff68172763320dcbbb7f41bd
The pic on performance-pc is actually wrong, but the description is accurate. There is one connection out the side, and another on top.
Actually, I just figured out a secret by picking up the fitting just now!
When I twist the rotary, it feels more coarse than smooth. You can notice a little grinding if you will...
All the other rotaries are very smooth when you twist them.
So, lesson learned. If you have a rotary that seems to 'grind' or feel rough when you are rotating it, it's probably better not to use.
I can't tell, but I assume the O-ring, or whatever they use for the rotary seals is depleted or cracked etc...
Interesting smile.gif I'll know to be more aware from now on, but happy I learned something tonight!


Im glad you mentioned something because I would have never have checked when i get home im going to check all of my fittings.

New loop order looks 10 times better good job.

This +1.

Also, good tip on the rotaries! Now I'll be checking each one before use thumb.gif

I think you may have misread the post. I am saying that the Koolance 380l (my block) requires high mounting pressure, but the indigo extreme requires lighter mounting pressure before reflowing. So in order to reflow, you need to loosen the block before hand, and then tighten it afterwards. Well, with the crystal link connections and tubes installed, there is very little 'give' between connections. So if you have a fitting that is screwed securely into your cpu block, and one into lets say your chipset block, then when you loosen the cpu block in order to reflow - the chipset connection is going to be stressed since it is not moving. The post is just dealing with the indigo extreme application. Another side effect is that the force from the unmoving connection will apply downward force to the cpu block itself, so it will be difficult to get the right mounting pressure with crystal links installed. Let me know if that makes sense.

Yea, I wish I would have known beforehand, but thankfully there was no collateral damage.

Thanks for the rep! Maybe one day I can make it on the trader list, haha wink.gif
Glad people found it useful.
