Thinking of just buying new o rings and pads, and keeping them as I already spend too much money on watercooling. I will also use a colored coolant, the clear was really hard to spot. If it had been red coolant I would have caught it in time.
sorry to hear that. I have a bunch of Aquacomputer stuff - really well made. Had two solid copper blocks on 7970's for 2 years, never cleaned the loop and they were good as new when sold. So far, the ek blocks I'm currently running (2 on titans and 3 on kingpins) have been very solid. Lucky. I do use only DW+redline water wetter tho. If your block leaked, the usual suspect is the mount to the flow block (those two o-rings have a mind of their own - had one pop out and just disappear in my office
). Was that where the leak originated? Unusual for the block o-ring to leak if still OEM.
Anyway - I can highly recommend the AQ water blocks! great stuff.
