Turn on my pc this morning and the predator didn't turn on(bios was showing cpu fan error) opened the case to smoke coming out of the pump/fan board thing on the side. Shut everything off immediately and opened a support ticket. Life sucks!

Do you know if it damaged anything else

Won't have another cpu cooler until I make a trip to microcenter but will be making sure to check my mobo or cpu for damage. I doubt it though bc I was able to get the bios up and running although with 60 degrees temp on the cpu. Worst part is waiting for email as their only contact numbers are euro obviously and I couldn't get through to anyone using google voice international calling

@akira749 I'm looking to upgrade my Predator 360 with Acrylic hard lines. What Fittings and Acrylic do you suggest and would it be compatible with EK coolant? Thank you!

My suggestion would be to go with 10/12mm acrylic tubes and 12mm hard tube compression fittings.

Fittings : EK-HDC Fittings

Tubing : EK-HD Tube 10/12mm 500mm (2 pcs)

Of course everything listed here is compatible with EK coolant. thumb.gif

I've double checked by removing the mounting plate from behind the motherboard and trying to test fit the bolts into it directly as well - same problem, that particular hole is indeed larger than the rest.

Getting OK temps with 3 bolts but definitely not a long term solution - especially not after paying those few hundred dollars for the kit.

i had the same issue, i ended up

The ones on the rad side are special rotary ones that are only available with the Predator and only in Nickel finish.

But you can use normal non-rotary compression fittings like you use on the CPU block.

We have 2 Black finish. The Black which is painted and the Elox Black which is anodized. The Black is deeper in color while the Elox Black have a very subtle blueish tint in the black due to the anodization process.

Black : EK-ACF Fitting 10/16mm - Black

Elox Black : EK-ACF Fitting 10/16mm - Elox Black
