If you build it with care and make sure that all your fittings are snug should not have to worry about leaks but it is true to state that you would have more failure points in the loop, but eh I also took your route and went with fittings for all my bends more for the aesthetics I'm not to worried about leaks as I took a lot of care when building the loop. Also have a lot of extra tube incase I change my mind and decided to redo it and make bends lol.

Why are fitting so expensive? Seems like they should be made on the cheap.

Supply and demand. We are a captive audience. We don't settle for barbs and zip ties because we are all about appearance. Manufacturers know this.

For those who do not know jassilamba, he definitely has more experience than most builders / reviewers/ testers / modders do. He fifinitely knows what he's doing and how to explain it all so we can understand and use his advice. thumb.gif

Now jass, don't let that swell you head too big. You may be good, but there is always somebody better. tongue.gif

I'll only add we see the same kind of crazy prices on custom vehicle fittings. These companies have a captive market with no competition to pull prices down to realistic levels.

Beware of the swiftech h220x2 especially. I had 2 and both had very bad leakage due to crack cpu blocks.

I now have a 3 month old water damaged 980ti, a1 week old water damaged 1080 and a old h100I left

More details please.
While the H220 X2 is not foo-proof it has a very good record of working very well with few complaints for consumers.

i first got a h220 x2. Used it for about a week and for some reason, my gpu kept crashing and my com kept restarting. I thought it was because of my unstable overclock. A week later my com crashed again and i was too pissed so i open it up only to see the reservoir only having 3/4 of its coolant left, and saw coolant stains on my gpu backplate. Proceed to remove the h220 x2 and realize that the cpu block is leaking. Open up my 980ti and found it wet.

Swiftech told me nothing they can do about it. I proceed to RMA it with my local distributor. After 2 weeks, got a brand new 1080 and manage to get the h220 x2 replaced.

Installed everything and ran it for a day. My gpu started crashing again and this time i quickly open up my com to examine the interior. Turns out there are massive air bubbles/space in the h220 x2 tubing. Realize that the cpu block once again leaked. This time round it soaked my week old 1080.

So now i basically have no h220 x2, and a couple of paper weights worth about $2500.





Red coolant is from the first h220x2. The other 2 pictures are from the RMA'ed h220x2

How did you crack two Apogee blocks? And you may be (pretty sure you are) the only person to post here that has cracked a CPU block, so obviously it is not a common issue. Also, all of the X2 series use the same block, so singling out the 220 makes no sense.
