Also what about silicone?
You could put a dab of silicone on yout thread before screwing in.your fitting. But give it 24 hours for the silicone to cure. Uncured silicone don't like water.

You also have to be careful that, as you screw in the fitting, that you do not squeeze any into the water channel. It would severly impede flow, and there is really no way of telling once the fitting is on. The same holds true if you use teflon tape. As with many things, moderation would be the key, but, in my opinion, still risky.

Using the bitspowered oring, which was looser on the thread, somehow allowed the sensor to have a snug fit on the res

the part you screw on now has a closer fit to the res, it's almost touching the res, before there was a small gap big enough to put a fingernail in

im assuming the xspc oring was getting in the way of the threads and the bitspower o ring was loose and allowed the threads to screw all the way in




i never thought it would be this way, i assumed the o-ring had to be snug to work properly and not loose and saggy
you live and you learn, i am lucky i caught my system dripping, but i guess theres no luck about being paranoid and opening the case to check every 5minutes smile.gif
