Help with my watercooled pc build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

im building my pc right now. Im using PETG hard tube and alphacool hard tube fittings. The problem is that i can pull the tube out of the fitting quite easily when i hand tighten the fittings pretty much to the maximum.

Fittings:

Tubing:

Any ideas what i could do against that or if it will be alright?


Greetings,

That's odd. Be sure that you have a straight cut on the end of it. Are your O-rings still good or has one of them possibly cracked?

Monsoon products are made to imperial standards. 13mm is slightly larger than 1/2", so this is probably the reason. Some people have had success with mixing metric and imperial tubing and fittings, and others have not. Have you measured the tubing to see the exact OD size? You could try to hook up a test loop outside the case and see if leaks.
