I find it hard to believe that a company as well established as EK would not think to include them. Are they missing on all 4 plugs or just two of them? I could almost understand not putting them on two of the plugs since they'll be thrown away (or at least not used) once it's installed... but to not put them on any of the ports is pretty stupid.

All of them. It taught me a valuable lesson that I already should have know and that is that when ever you do anything KISS it Keep It Simple Stupid and check everything. I did not damage anything but made me mad....

YEah, people saw my initial FCPU cart and asked me why I needed the BP UV green o-rings I got, and I said:

"You just never know with those things, and this is coming from a guy that's never done custom water!"

I ordered 20, and I have already used eight!





Thanks - T

Yeah I know what you mean I order 50 of the g 1/4 O-rings and 10 D5 o-rings.. Because I knew I would be taking fittings off over and over doing testing and wanted to make sure I have enough new ones to replace them and also for the mistakes I would make..

I haven't seen too many builds using the koolance controller, obviously seen tons with the Aquacomputer stuff however. Don't have experience with either since I'm waiting for jvjessen to finish his and get past prototype stage. Since that's been going on for almost a year now... I may get impatient and grab an AQ5 myself... but it just looks so pedestrian compared to his custom controller. biggrin.gif

Did someone call my name?

The problem I had with the EK radiators has anyone else had this or was I just lucky???? And not problem really but just be nice for people to know because not everyone buys more than they need of everything for a just in case.. Some people try to order exactly what they need and nothing more..

So as a Public Service I would like to know the answer to the above question????. The 360 XT did not have o-rings on the plugs but only 1 set of ports so this was ok.... But the 140 XTC had 4 plugs with no O-rings...

All I know is that all of my alphacool rads had O-rings on every plug... all 7 of them per rad! smile.gif Granted, I wish they would just use black plugs rather than the untreated copper... which not only oxidizes quickly, but is really soft too. frown.gif They have to be the cheapest O-rings available because they deform completely and don't return to their original shape at all - but at least they make a proper leak-proof seal - right out of the box. thumb.gif

That is good to know I guess the thing everyone should remember is to check and make sure that they are o-rings on any plug from the factory...

I was thinking about the sleeving and was wondering when everyone makes custom cables do they have all the wires 1 length or do they account for the bends and angles??? Just curious because I think if you want the wires to lay perfectly they will not be the same length. Any Help or insight on this??
