MCP655 and Tubing help - Page 3

OK, things are going smooth so far with great support and information from you'll. I have the loop running on my desk, took me a minute or two to get all the air out of the loop, this pump is nice a quiet too.

I did find a few leaks right off the bat, the t-lin port wasn't screwed in tight enough, fixed that. I am also using the plastic barbs for the res. b/c danger den did not send me my barbs with the rad. so I have my nice one's on that and using the plastic one's until my package comes from dangerden. I emailed them and told them, and got a quick response with apologizes and notice that my barbs/screws for rad were shipped.

Well I have never put tubing on a 655, but I have found that 7/16" tubing is tight on barbs and fittings. I tried something that has many uses with things that are tight. wink wink. I put a thin, very thin film of KY jelly on my finger (I know where your mind just went lolz) and coat the outside edge of the barb and the tubing slides in with one push... mmmmm

Cant hurt to try it...
Good idea actually, the hardest parts were the plastic barbs/t-line. Though I don't have any in stock lol.

All things are running smoothly, I'm going to continue work on the case, have some more sleeving to do and I will let the loop run for a few hours. It took about 1/3 a gallon to fill my loop, so not bad at all. I still have plenty of left over tubing for future projects as well.

One last question about the pump, I thought I read somewhere that it gets hot, this true? Also it comes with a sticky pad to mount underneath, is this safe to use? Thanks all.

Hey I'm glad its going well, thats what I like to hear.....Give us some pic's when your done if you can, we love pic's...

You have a DDC I guess...The bottoms on those run hot because thats where the PCB is....

I usually run mine on studs with a rubber flat washer on the stud to keep the pump from touching the case...That helps a lot, if your real bored you can cut a hole through the bottom of your case and mount a little 40x10mm fan blowing up on it, I liked to do that.....

EDIT: I love Danger Den, they have customer service as good as any on the net, as you've found out...Love the place, its in my top 4 or 5 favorites for WC'ing gear...



I have just mounted them on the peel and stick pad to, just mount it to the pump and cut the center out so air can circulate on the bottom...The first way is the best but I was over-volting the snot out of them and really needed the extra cooling.....Putting a little fan blowing across the bottom sure cant hurt though even at stock...

Update, everything is running smoothly, I had to connect a floppy and ide cd/dvd rom for installation of windows with RAID enabled.

I had a leak which could have been disastrous, but me and my buddy caught it. I am using plastic barbs on my res, well when moving things around one came loose, well I have the res located at the top of the case, so it start dripping downward on the pump and then my 8800gts.. after cleanup and a blow dryer left by my ex girlfriend all was good.

At first startup I still had some air in the res, we filled it to the brim. The only issue I have right now is the water pressure is making turbulence in the res, creating very little air bubbles, guess the best comparison would be a hot tub. This may be normal, but I figured I would ask. I think the problem may be the plastic barbs too, when you screw them in they are inside the res about half the distance to the other wall, so the water coming into the res is causing issues...

But windows is installing, I will be getting temps asap. Things were looking good in the bios, right now everything is at stock. Will post pictures asap...

In addition to all the above - especially heating the tubing in hot water - I've had good success with lubing the barbs with just a LITTLE dish washing liquid detergent. Like Ira-K said - once you get going, don't stop!
