O-ring for what exactly? For a G 1/4 fitting?

yes!

i bought a bitspower g1/4 temp sensor and the oring was very loose, so i used my xspc drain plug's o-ring

after i had tightened it perfect with 0 drips overnight and no leak, i had a bad feeling i might of stripped the thread and hand tightened it to tight
i made the mistake of loosening it to test for leaks and now ive been tightening it more and more ever since... went from a drop every 5minutes to 10, then 20, then 30, then 1hour, and now 3-6hours?

i just want to get a solid fitting that fits correctly and i can use without having to put paper towels under the res and worrying i will lose a whole computer from a leak off a temp sensor frown.gif

Get a G1/4 O ring, they should be universal size. I would order one from daz mode since I'm in Canada too. And tolerate the paper towel fix until you get it. I'll measure one when I get home and report back.

Now why do you think it's leaking? Bad O ring or stripped threads?

to be honest i think at this point its because i used the xspc drain plug o ring
it might of been tight fit on the bitspower, but the bitspower might of been loose for a reason
problem at the store was all were such like "1 5/8" I.D. x 1 7/8" O.D. x 1/8" Wall "
and i couldnt find the exact one

with the loose bitspowered o-ring it seems somehow the sensor was able to tighten more into the res


really weird, i always figured o-rings were tight not loose and saggy and i guess im learning more things every day about water cooling and its do's and dont's smile.gif
like how i should have made a T line or something to prepare for draining my kit before i made it smile.gif

I just measured the o-ring from spare bitspower compression fitting I have. It does fit a little loose under the threads
