Do you know if XSPC ECX coolant is safe for PETG? I cannot find anywhere what the xspc coolant is made of.

UPDATE: I found it in a review. It is Propylene Glycol. Ill leave this post up just in case anyone else was curious.

Are these the 90 degree fittings/extenders that I would use with hardline fittings?

Considering I don't have to use them I'm not sure how valid my comment is, but having a way to open the loop at the very top of the case is great both for filling and draining. I just unplug one of the stop fittings in my Alphacool rads (actually I sometime do 2 as I use one to fill through) for when I'm filling the loop and for when I'm draining it to let some air in. It seriously speeds up the process.

The air checks are to allow air to escape a loop during pressure buildup. So say you have some powerful suction coming from the pump and the loop is prone to airlock, the check valve is to mitigate that and keep the flow moving. I know I am not 100% accurate with my terminology, but I just woke up and haven't had my morning caffeine fix. biggrin.gif

These are pressure equalizer fittings. You place them at the top of the reservoir to allow excess air to bleed out to equalize the pressure inside the loop itself. In a perfect scenario, the air bubbles (large and small) will be forced into the reservoir (and not held within rads or blocks). When you cap off a reservoir there's going to be pressure capped off with it, this equalizes that pressure by allowing the higher pressure to escape to a lower pressure (ambient/outside of the reservoir).

As far as the filter... eh, i guess, if you have a bunch of flux in your loop. Dunno that I'd trust the materials on that thing. I know it says Brass/POM, but what of the filters? Those aren't brass. Probably steel, but could be aluminum.

Thanks to both of you smile.gif Very good explanation Jason with the bubble scenario smile.gif


Might invest in two of them smile.gif Could be re-used afterwards I guess and just be replaced by regular lock fittings smile.gif


They have different filter models, I have cleaned my stuff, but never really sure with 2x 560 Radiators, so I will buy a filter and plug it in to my quick disconnect tubing so I can easily remove it afterwards when I have had it run for a few hours smile.gif



Again, big thanks! biggrin.gifcheers.gif

The pressure equalizer fittings will have to stay in place. Because once you take it off and replace it with another fitting, you're just capping more pressure into the reservoir.

Can't you achieve the same solution if your res has multiple ports and you loosen a cap to allow the pressure to escape?
