post #2801 of 4492
uhhh I am sad to report, that now my bottom port is stripped... my build was online and loaded Win10 with a few programs, it was leaking slowly, slowly got worse so I took it apart hoping to put some plumper tape on it, but now it wont even hold a tight seal, I even rotated the fitting counter clock wise to ensure it was threading straight before going clock wise.



Tested the same fitting on a spar CPU block I have, and all is fine seal wise on it so I know it isn't the fitting at all... I am really not sure what to do at this point, I guess order a new bottom for my res? mad.gif

What fitting are you putting on there? The FDP port is only made for a plug. I had a similar issue with using extenders to connect a pump and I had to use 2 o-rings to make it seal. It's just the design of the FDP.

hmm let me try another seal, it seems like it only grabs on one thread though... I dont feel to comfy with it like this redface.gif

Adding another seal doesnt allow me to thread it at all... What are my other options here?

you know what I see what it is now, its only catching 1 thread because the OD of the fitting is bigger since the damn FDP G1/4 hole is not flush with the base of it... hmmmm I wonder if I can bore it out just enough to catch threads.

or maybe someone knows of a extender that would fit there allowing a small push off from the FDA base there.

Wonder if this would work:

Hopefully Micro Center has something like this in stock... I really don't want to wait on shipping now that this thing is pretty much done all but this part rolleyes.gif haha

I had the same issue but I was using an extender. I used 2 o-rings and I didn't feel I could get it to thread, but I pressed hard enough that I eventually got it to catch. I literally think I have only a couple of threads holding it, but mine doesn't leak. The other option that Boxgods suggested is to dremel out the opening to allow the fitting to seat properly.

I used an EK extender because it was the narrowest extender I could find, and good news is I did pick it up at microcenter. I used a monsoon G1/4 o-ring on top of the EK extender o-ring and it worked. The Monsoon o-ring is much thicker than the EK, the EK is barely an o-ring imo, but for normal use I guess it's ok. The Monsoon o-ring is a beast! I tried two EK o-rings because I had extra but wasn't enough.

Guys i can tell you from industrial experience never use 2 orings together as it will leak!! Think about it a iring is to be used between 2 hard surfaces and if tou have 2 together then it is soft in the middle and will leak! I can not belive boxgods said to do this????

This x100, you'll never get a perfect seal with 2 orings on top of each other, it's rubber, it will need 100% even accurate pressure and it simply won't happen.

I thought for-sure my issue was solved, sadly it is still ever so slightly leaking, I am thinking about using some plumper tape to see if i cant get it to seal all the way. - This in no way would stop me from buying these or recommending them I am leaving my 2-cents here.

I am using the "Fill tops for the top/bottom" the center "Dual port" has zero issues, I am not sure if the molds are different slightly? - but I just thought I would let everyone know, due to the complex short run and having to un-do some stuff I am seriously just considering using silicone around the seal...

I forgot to mention I am using bitspower compression fittings. In any-case LOVING my build!

I am not sure why you are using the FDP-BASE end cap internally with a fitting (it is simply not designed for that). It is designed to accept a PLUG as it is a fill port. My advice is to replace the FDP with the correct end cap as your are simply not using the FDP as it is intended to be used.
