Most blocks come with an LGA2011 conversion kit. Its pretty much an LGA 1366 layout plus some full thread screws.


Swiftech Apogee HD
Koolance 380
EK Supremacy
etc.

A few companies offer conversion kits that are very inexpensive and can allow you to convert any LGA 1366 block into LGA 2011 (Phobya, Koolance, EK, etc.). Its just a new screw kit.

not from my experience. i have had 0 problems with it. the only time it plasticized, was when i used it to clean my loop out, and i accidently used too much vinegar mixed with the distilled water. so much so that it took a bit of the nickel off my compression fittings. oops. but that was the ONLY time it plasticized. after i replaced that tubing, i've had absolutely no plasticizer creep back in my loop.

in some people's case, yes. but its a hit and miss. the old batches of it was perfect. newer batches seems to plasticize a lot.

You can paint the plate to whatever color you want. I painted the plate to my FC block and it looks like it came that way...

Just cause it's a metal plate don't mean you gotta leave it plain steel. That's what we do here. When it's not right, we fix it. thumb.gif

PrimoFlex PRO LRT Tubing
(non advanced.)

The Advanced LRT is the new tubing that is supposed to be problem free unlike what you have bought, the PrimoFlex PRO LRT is pure crap!

This. I got the Pro LRT and have run no additives and no Killcoil, distilled only and no dyes. PrimoChill knows that it's crap. They even stated that it's likely due to running temps over 30c. I am running a non lapped CPU and Folding(temporarily down for awhile) 24/7 so I'd like to know what tubing would not be affected by temps at 35c...

There isn't a single system that runs 24/7 at 30c or under unless there is some form of cooling support like a chiller or ambient temps that run sub 30c for 365 days of the year. Can't even imagine an Intel CPU running 24/7/365 while Folding at sub 30c temps.

There is a reason they reformulated an alternative tubing. I liked my PC LRT when it didn't leech into the coolant but they won't even accept responsibility for the issue, yet they know that it happens and they know why. I don't care if I have to spend money on new tubing. That's fine. I just wish they wouldnt take the EK stance on the issue. Theirs is not the only tubing that is doing it though.

I wonder if the new stuff is more flexible. This PRO LRT stuff is ruining my thumbs on compression fittings!!

Just finish my build! This is the second time I've ever water-cooled so I learned from my past mistakes and got it right this time. No leaks and I have a way to drain my loop easier than my old build.

Old build


New build

The problem I see with LRT (non-adv.) is that its a tad too thick for some fittings. My phobya fittings had no issues with it but the TFC was virtually non-fitting (pardon the pun tongue.gif). The XSpC were a pita but the Enzotechs where a bit better but no where near the ease of Duralene tube.

Best comp fittings I've utilized are BP. I guess that's one reason why they're pricey (good design and build).
