Yep I was using distilled with additive I think I developed a leak at the cpu block. However I just noticed on my ek blocks the acrylic or whatever is not flush with copper block. Right now I'm trying to make sure they didn't leak as well. one card was spared so far. it was just wet on the wblock. I have a good feeling the equipment is okay it did post again after shuttdown when I realized after I saw liquid!!

Still going at it :-/

I don't see how a lot of dust ends up in the actual loop? I mean it's a closed system except when you open it up. The only time mine was open was when I was getting the air out and left the res cap open to let the air bubbles escape.

So any dust that would be in it would have had to fall directly in to the hole then. I don't think a few dust particles would be able to make water conductive. I mean obviously if you got enough crap in it. Also dust is made up mostly of dead skin cells.... I don't think dead skin cells are going to conduct electricity very well.

Put anything you can in a bag with plain old white rice. It's amazing at sucking up water. what you don't want to do right now is start powering stuff on that might have water in it dude.... I know it sucks and you want to test stuff out but you really need to give stuff 2-3 days in bags full of rice.

I had a friend drop a phone in the sink or something at my house and he refused to listen to me about not powering it back on, needless to say it never worked again when if he had just let it chill in rice it *might* have worked in a few days.

Ya, just wondering if the coolant got overheated somehow and built up pressure in the loop. Anyway, this is going into water cooling territory now so I will just wish him good luck- hopefully the components still work.

Oh I am not powering anything on its all torn apart. I just powered it on after it shutting down initially thinking I had crashed. While posting I looked down and saw liquid pooled on psu top..

I am tearing it all down now and two of my ek blocks so far have the same strange gap between acrylic and copper. I will post a pic soon if I can its hard to see.


also ill refrain from posting alot on here since its gpu owners thread and not wc disaster zone :-)

Soon as it touches air or even the motherboard or other parts it will collect dust. No ones case is that dust free, unless its all new parts.

Is this CRC Electrical cleaner a good thing to have laying around ? Can you spray a PCB with it ?

Make a thread in the watercooling forum, I am sure others will be interested as well.

LOL.


Anyways, I always have the stuff laying around. I use it whenever I clean and its safe for all electronics, but that is for the gentler stuff. There are different grades with stronger grades that eat plastics and that is bad juju on pcbs. I use the CRC QD cleaner for pc stuff as it is plastics safe. Spray it on, blast it off with some air. Read the can, it tells you how to clean with it too.

I had similar experience before where I accidentally spilled liquid on my mobo and the system shuts down. Dismantled it and used some air pressure to blow all the water from the crevices. Took me a couple of hours to do so and everything worked again.


Normally all watercooling parts in the market are pressure tested way beyond a normal watercooling system would ever produce, but other things factors in like temperature difference between ambient and the system, sudden heating/cooling would tend to build pressure inside. That's why I decided to use pressure valve on my loop (on my reservoir) so if there's any pressure building up inside that is too much, it will be automatically released. and I do use Acrylic tubing so that's a little more re-assuring in my end, it won't be so easy to break them just by the pressure that the loop will ever produce.


Which comes down to the waterblocks and connections (fittings), normally you would want to replace the O-rings everytime you disassemble the blocks and remove fittings, but I tend to use them 3times before I decide to replace them.

Man I know it's been said but I cannot even begin to tell you the frustration of getting exactly enough money together to start your new build only to watch a main components price shoot wildly out of range frown.gif

I was hoping to have everything ready to go (but the A10 7850k for obvious release date reasons) by thethe beginning of January and this price gouging shows no signs of letting up.

So incredibly frusturating.

At what point does water actually ever come in to contact with anything besides the blocks/tubing/rads? It's a closed system until you open a cap on a res or something right? I mean yea dust accumulates on the outside of the loop/radiator etc.

So if you have no dust accumulation IN any of those components how does any noticeable level of dust get in to the loop? I'm not talking about a particle here or there.

I mean my loop probably has a black Labrador dog hair in it, 1 hair or a few dust particles isn't going to change the electrical conductivity of the entire loop.
