Don't mean to troll but you were asking about how to make sure your watercooling won't leak 3 weeks ago. Thinking about watercooling your rig. Makes me wonder if you had a "boo boo" priming your setup and ran the pump dry. It happens...it happened to me the first time. Guys on here will help you get it right. Don't give up on water cooling from one bad pump. Things happens. At least a new pump is cheap

Haha no dude nothing happened, My rig is fine, I'm just paranoid it's gonna leak. I put so much time and money into it that I just don't want something to spring a leak and totally destroy my PC.

As far as any "boo boos", I can assure you I was super careful about filling the res and topping it off while it was leak testing. I was very cautious when filling the loop up for the first time, I took every precaution possible.

At this point, it's just getting to be a pain. Whenever I move it, whether it be to a LAN, moving it to a desk to mess with the cables, or just getting shaken a bit when the shelf it's on gets bumped into, I always cringe, thinking a fitting came loose and is gonna leak on me.

The pump isn't helping either, are res/pump combos usually loud?

Just sounds strange that after not even a month your pump is acting up is all. Post a pic of your loop. Maybe something is a miss

Hey I gotta quick question for you guys.


Everyone ever mix different manufactured acrylic or petg tubing?


Would like to get some more tubing as I'll be blocking my FTW soon, and Primochill has a lower priced tubing to Monsoon. Same sizing and color, just different manufacturer. Just wanna double check, since I've never personally mixed. Thanks!

Shoot! I was bit by the bug ages ago it feels like. I have it so bad, that I plan to get off air with a Dell XPS 8700 as soon as I possibly can. It doesn't act up when I am gaming but I really would like to see better than ~55c temps. I won't ever build another air cooled system for myself if I can help it. biggrin.gif

Oh no dude it's been "loud" for a while, since I got it.

It's not making any screeching/grinding noises, it just sounds like there's a weak asf motor trying to push all this water through.

Well its a DCP, which is a pretty weak pump after all. It works for small loops, but you get what you pay for.

A decent DDC would be quieter(if you control the speed) and will have much better flow. And if you really want something quiet, get a D5.

Depending on your loop, the EK's new SPC-60 is a great choice too for smaller loops, as its about as quiet as a D5 when you're not dealing with tons of restriction.

Another good one for smaller loops would be the Topsflo TDC, and its cheap at a mere $40.
