First time water cooler setup problem (help quick plz!) ;0)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I'm in the middle of setting up my first water cooling system as we speak, all of the parts arrived from Specialtech UK today and I have the cpu block, rad & fans, res installed and some of the tubing. I have come to installing the pump (Laing DDC 3.25) and I guess I may be missing a part as I took the pump from the plain white OEM box to find nothing but the pump, no instructions or anything. I have compression fittings for everything else and was kinda guessing that the tubing just slipped over the inlet and outlet of the pump but the tube is way too loose on it. I literally have the pump and no additional parts, should I have bought something to add to the pump? I hope someone can help fast as I am stood literally waiting to install this little sucker.

Thanks in advance peeps.

yea you either needed to get tubing the size of the inlet/outlet , or purchased an aftermarket top with G1/4 openings so you could use your compression fittings.

like these: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/c107/s1806/list/p1/Liquid_Cooling-PC_Water_Cooling_Pumps-DDC_Pump_Tops-Page1.html

or a res built to hold a DDC pump that would also have the ports for your compression fitting like this http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15649/ex-res-353/Alphacool_Repack_Single_525_Acrylic_Reservoir_-_Clear_-_Laing_DDC_Swiftech_MCP35x_Series_15165.html

I think you need a pump top, something like this

Thanks so much for the fast reply, I guess that's as far as my setting up goes for today then. I spent an amazing 62mins on the phone with the guy getting exact parts and specs to set up a full new watercooling system together and he assured me that I had everything I needed. Oh well, thanks again mate.

Does anyone know of any tried and tested D.I.Y methods of adapting tubing to fit the standard/OEM Laing DDC 3.25? I'm going to have to wait until Monday to order the parts and it'll probably take 4-5 days for them to be shipped out to me, at this point my PC is scattered all over my kitchen and unusable! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again guys.

Paul.
