I don't get you... take a look at the video 1:20 and see how he is putting the tube on the fitting and screwing down the compression part. You just have to do it reverse. NO HAMMER! rolleyes.gif

Haha. Hammer. That's funny.

I didn't try to take my rotary fitting off when expanding mine. I didn't spend a lot of time trying to figure it out and instead just cut the zmt, already attached, to fit.

Might have been a better idea to take the fittings apart first before just cutting the tubing.

I might have to take another look at it when I eventually add another radiator. Guess I better get out the hammer. smile.gif

Also, of I had to guess I'd say English isn't his first language so he's not understanding the allen key advise.

*sigh*

Nope that is our Education system at work. mellowsmiley.gif

Not trying to be mean but it used to be Critical Thinking was taught at home. Now people can't take the time to do it so they leave it to the schools to do it. And we wonder why this country is leaning toward third world status. puke.gif

I don't disagree with your point, but if you're going to talk about English, remember it's "advice" and not "advise" when you're talking about something given. You advise, and you give advice.

Not attacking you, just something we need to be mindful of as we criticize others.

Haha. Busted. smile.gif

Now if we're going to get technical, in my case we're just talking about a misspelled word, which on a cell phone is easy to do!

I don't think I was criticizing him either. Just making a guess as to why he might not be getting it. I would never criticize someone trying to communicate outside their native language. As you can see, I have enough trouble with the only one I've ever known.

On a different topic though. How long is coolant (ek ekoolant Evo clear) good for? I know I shouldn't reuse it after years, but I'm wanting to pull the trigger on a 2nd rad and even though I'll be getting another liter of the stuff regardless, the stuff in the loop now couldn't be more than 4 months running.

Can I / should I reuse it?

Just my luck, I took the old PWM hub off the radiator then proceeded to install the new one. Riveted in place and then went to install it in my Caselab S3 only to find out I need to remove the PWM hub for it to work with the S3 radiator mount plate lol, which i'm way to lazy to try to do again so I guess I'm use the predator for a different build.

When I expanded my loop, I simply just added EK coolant. Looks still good and cools like it is supposed to do.
But make sure to clean the new rad before use.
There is often still junk inside.

That are problems... wink.gif
Nice case!

got the 280 RAD installed front and hooked to the GPU while 360 is still on the mono block



if i'm going for a silent operation the temps could reach to 50c while gaming on ultra settings @ 4k , however the CPU could reach 65c

if i go for a balanced operation i can keep the gpu in the 45c range and CPU in the 55 to 59c range

full speed fans ( very noisy that 280RAD ) temps barely reach 41c on GPU and CPU 51c max
