Triton Raijintek low water level? high temps!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone i have the Triton Raijintek for about 4 months now and recently it started making weird water noises and having high temps on my cpu (Amd FX8320)...At first i thought it was due to high summer ambient temps but then i heard the noises and i noticed a lot of bubbles traveling through the tubes...i will post a video to see exactly what is going on...The only thing i can think of creating these problems is the low level of water...but the circuit is closed as ti came from the factory - i have never opened it to add/remove water the seal is still on and i had no leakage - also i tried to move the radiator in different positions to make sure no air/water is trap creating problems...
In stock 3.7Ghz i currently have 43oC in normal use (web.youtube etc) which is very high..What can i do ?

they have been known to have very slight leaks. I would refill it and keep an eye on the level and make sure it doesnt drop again,

I'm gonna use this thread since its the same problem. However, I do not have any leaks, I checked the whole loop, case and so on for any leaks, and found nothing. Its the exact same thing, the coolant level started dropping and I dont know what should I refill it with. I cant even use Kill Coil or stuff like that since its an alu rad and most likely it will tear it apart with corrosion.

I used to have a triton and noticed water levels dropping as well, I was told that it was due to evaporation through the tubing but I dont really know about that. I checked constantly for leaks and there were none anywhere for the few months that I used it. It never got to the point where the pump was pulling in air like yours but I was told by Raijintek via facebook to top it off with distilled water and that worked just fine for me.

I dunno about yours but mine had a noticeable plastic/chemical smell to it (especially the first few weeks) until I drained all the stock fluid and changed the tubing as recommened by someone somewhere (I forget). I was told the tubing is rather low quality and leaches plasticizers like crazy. I dunno if it was the tubing or the fluid at fault but changing them both seemed to help the smell at least but I did not keep it long enough to see if it helped the liquid level dropping. I used Ek-Ekollant EVO ( http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-ekoolant-evo-clear-concentrate-100ml.html ) as my replacement coolant

yes this is what is happening, the water vapor cells are small enough to pass between the cells of the tubing.

I have been water cooling for 20 years, and none of my systems have ever leaked, but I still have to add some liquid to my system every 3 to 6 months.

its normal for the water level to drop, don't know if making a water loop out of soft copper tubing would limit this, but maybe some day I will give it a try, I think it would look nice.(until the copper turns green lol)

that is kinda what I figured but was a little unsure. Thanks for confirming that!
copper tubing would be great to make a loop out of, I've seen a few around and they look great! I install A/c systems for a living so I run a LOT of copper lines and have definitely been thinking about going that route in the future for my loop. There must be some sort of polish product that could keep that copper looking bright, I'll have to look in to it

Check the Radiator also. It could be leaking small amount but the fan dries it up before you can see it.
