Well once i got the parts took me about 2 1/2- 3hours to get it put together then i leak tested it overnight. Then the last time i redid my loop took me about 2 hours and i didn't bother with a leak test lol!

My Microres leaked and leaked and leaked...I eventually just said /****/ it and bought a Dangerden dual bay res. Best decision for me personally, looks cool, fits the case, and is sturdy as hell.

Does the majority of the Microres's have problems?

They look so nice...

Took me a couple of hours to build my loop...most of that was spent correcting a tubing mistake....(put the outlet from the micro res to the pump in the space where the inlet from the GPU was supposed to go)... it's a pain in the ass taking 7/16" tubing off of plastic 1/2" barbs without cutting tubing, let me tell ya. But yea, then I spent the next couple hours (while watching Chronicles of Riddick) bleeding and leak testing at the same time. Turned it on after the movie was over, haven't had any leaks or temp issues yet

I think you just need to use the stock barbs with it as that seems to have fixed my problem

wow... I think I am dumb then
OR maybe you're just really good!
or both?
Well that was a simple install (CPU + core only GPU)

The second one I did (CPU + core-only GPU again) also took ~1hr for the install of the H2O but took maybe an additional 45 min or so to cut blowholes and make a few other changes to the case to fit the radiator.

My current H2O build took a few hours but it's a lot more involved CPU, NB, SB, 2x FC GPU, 2x 360mm rad.

I like these DD "FatBoys" they have a built in o-ring capture so you can snug them down tight, and they are a little larger ID..1/2" Fat Boy Barbs..

If you wrap the top 2/3's of your barb threads with teflon tape and get it real tight on up around the o-ring it will help keep the ring from deforming as badly also....
How many wraps do you recommend because it's still leaking
I finally got it working after a week and it won't stop leaking... i wanna cry now

With thicker tape 2 or 3, with the real thin .99 cent kind I'd do one or two more so 4 or 5 with it...If you have trouble getting them in just back it out and take one layer off at a time till it will seat...Just do about the top 2/3's of your barbs, keep going on up and over the o-ring to, really snug it down tight on the o-ring, that will help to keep it from deforming as badly and hopefully you can snug it down a little tighter..


If all else fails use some of that Permatex on the barbs instead of rings, the only bad thing is you would have to let it cure out a couple of days before you use it..Sung them on down well, don't turn your barb any further in or out once its cured or you will break the bond..I clean them off with a little alcohol first also, in gets any finger grease off of them...

Hurrray! That fixed it! I leak tested overnight and there don't seem to be any leaks so far! Thank you so much!
