Raijintek Triton leakage. Any way to stop it? [Solved]

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I've had 2 small leaks now and I'd like to know what I can do about it. Is it possible to fix it with glue? Could it be that my ressevoir is filled too much?
I have the Raijintek Triton AIO water cooling solution. It's 1 year and 2 months old and recently started leaking. The coolant is Feser One Acid Green UV and has been refreshed 2 times since purchase.
I cleaned my gpu with isopropyl alcohol after the first leak and I am currently protecting my gpu from stains with toilet paper...... I'm desprate, please help me lol.


[UPDATE]: (solved) I have contacted Raijintek with proof of the leak and they have sent me a replacement block. smile.gif

Leak 1:

Leak 2 (about 2,5 weeks after the first leak):

I'm impressed you still have the rig turned on! That drip could turn into a drizzle quite quickly and the toilet paper won't help!
Locate the source of the leak, if it's at a threaded connector, just git a pair of pliers on there and rotate 1/8th of a turn or there abouts, you'll probably feel it bight harder when it's properly tightened.
If it's some part of the housing that's leaking, maybe locate that and fill the hole with aroldite or some other two part epoxy that will be water resistant and give a solid bond (after you've drained the liquid and dried it all up).

I didn't think it was neccesary to shut down immediately since my coolant is non-conductive.
Thanks, I will try it out tommorow, for it 03:16... I haven't had any luck yet spotting the leak, even though my coolant is uv reactive.

As much as those are a nice looking AIO they are prone to horrible leaking problems. If it were me I would return it and get something else.

Call the company to ask them what they can do about it. Dont know if it is still under warranty.

Non-conductive or not, you don't want any fluids touching PCBs ever. Your coolant may have picked up some ionic metals in loop. Luck is the only factor in not ruining your card. Better off getting it out and fixing the problem and throwing a Hyper 212 Evo on it from amazon until you can epoxy it or whatever.

Non conductive fluid is not non conductive forever. Any leak is potential disaster. Use caution.

Yes, a non-conductive fluild WILL start to become conductive after only a few weeks. Don't let that stuff drip on your PCB's, pull it now until you can get it resolved. You said you only had it for 1-2 months, RMA it at least, or return it for refund and get another AIO.

So I believe I found the leak. The spillage is accumulating in the braided wire, which goes up into the resevoir to power the pump and LED.
Would epoxy glueing still do the job, if I sealed the hole from which the wire is coming with it, keeping in mind that the actual leakage is up higher?

I'm removing the watercooler atm.

Learning that the hard way... I would have hoped it atleast lasted for a total of two years..
