edit:: is not threaded all around or just talking about the thread pitch/depth?

Stren didn't mention it either way other than it won the shootout, so I guess it didn't leak for him.

This person claims that with a simple turn of the fitting one can strip the threads (or at least make the fitting loose again).

I guess what bothers me is not that it's half threaded, if it works it works, but the fact that EVERY photo on the internet of this block (intentionally?) does not show the fact that it's half threaded on the outlet port.

Im a bit confused though. Are you saying that half of the hole, like crescent, is only threaded? Or are the threads not deep enough?
post #28064 of 106735
Half the hole is completely unthreaded. See this pic

I was not the first to discover this, I ordered it a couple hours before opt33's post. Actually, I think rge on XS is opt33 here at ocn (same avatar).

Im honestly pretty pissed off and aggravated, my EK-DCP 4.0 comboe came today, and mounting the res to the pump is by far the WORST design ive even seen, the screws dont line up good, its hard to get them to start threading, im so mad i bought this POS , and if i cant get it to mount i wont be able to do my build this weekend, hell i can barely get the screws to thread with the res off, i thought maybe i stripped the holes, but when i put the orginal screws that came with the pump back in they thread PERFECTLY!!

can someone please help me!

I see. the depth on the other half is mising. Well, I can see your concern. Has anyone contacted Alphacool? I'm sure they would have pressure (air) tested these to ensure the fittings don't pop. Usually things are overbuilt to withstand a slightly higher tolerance.

Personally, just setup a simple loop with no components attached and outside your case and run the pump full power for 24hrs. If anything, you can always use epoxy to glue an extension on there tongue.gif. Or just return it and get a different block thumb.gif

Shoot us a ticket on EK Support. These DCP4.0 Combos are cast and some might slipped QC. We will replace the unit for you! thumb.gif
I don't think you stripped the threads. Yes, mounting it is PITA but not impossbile. That's why we're making a new version.

Niko

I ended taking a break before i whipped it at the wall, and then took another stab at it, apparenty the screws that came with the res are bigger then the screws that where in the pump, so i had to put the screws in without the res and work them in, took abit of force, but once in they would screw in and out fairly easy, and i now got it mounted snug.. but ya def needs a revamp in design, hex screws suck when in tight places like that, i stripped the hex key and thank god not the screw, lucky i have a personal set of hex keys thumb.gif
