Water Corrison?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me what this is (pics attached)?

My custom loop has been running since the end of August 2013. I did do extensive leak testing and this computer does run 24/7.

Today I decided to dust out my computer and came to find what looks like water corrosion on my back-plate and GPU. I toke off the backplate and cleaned the PCB with rubbing alcohol. There was white residue and green residue on the metal.

The card runs fine still, but I can't find the leak. Can it be coming from the CPU block?

Updated: Recieve email back from XSPC. I will show them this thread.

Hi,
Pls send us a video of the leaking problem,pls donot send it from Youtube since it is blocked in China.
We have sold out thousands of rotaty fittings,but only received very few complaints.
If you worry,pls take apart all of your rotary fittings and have a check whether them leak or not.

Best Regards

Update #2: Have not heard back from them after showing this thread. Avoiding all their products now until they respond.....

Easier if you host the pics on the page itself, some people don't want to dl your pictures. Me being one of them.

Looks like it's coming from the fitting right above your CMOS battery. Seems sealed now, but you're very lucky.

Yea I am very lucky. I re-tightened all the fittings. Going to monitor that one closely.

Update: the 45 degree rotary fitting's internal o-ring must be defective as that is where the water is leaking from. I can web browse and it wont leak as long as the temps stay low. This back-plate saved my card and I can't believe this rotary fitting is defective! Re-doing loop this weekend when I get parts.
