you can straighten the fins out just make sure theres no damage to the cores, fill it with water and check for leaks.. nice score !thumb.gif

Lesson learned. Always, ALWAYS do a proper leak test after filling the loop.

Today I was showing my rig to a friend when I realized my reservoir was almost empty, to my surprise, I had a leak in the intake port of the radiator as I did not put the tubing properly into the compression fitting. doh.gif

Luckily the water only touched the radiator and the bottom of the case, so no component was any close to the water, but still got me really scared. Re-did it all, with a different fitting (Normal instead of 45º) and did a 4 hour leak test.

I'm glad I showed my friend the computer, else I wouldn't have noticed. eek.gif

This is where it leaked from:



The tubing was a bit forced so it wasn't fit straight into the fitting, so I changed it to a straight fitting. It was a serious leak, almost 1 drop of water per second, good I realized before the reservoir emptied out completely, I wouldn't have liked running the pump with no water.

Glad you got it sorted before any real damage was done!

My Narada build has those bitspower crystal tube fittings between the reservoirs and pumps, and those don't really have any real securement to them. I'm always stressing about them whenever I even move my rig. They're so buried it'd take all day to fix it lol.

Does anyone know of any good guides on setting up watercoolilng for the first time. I watched a video by Linus at NCIX but I'd like to watch a few more before I order my parts. Any good ones you'd recommend taking a look at?

I would say you should be fine with some common external rad mounting brackets. XSPC makes a good set.

These Monstas get heavy once filled with liquid. Can't wait to see your CL beast with four Monsta 480s!!!! I'll do fine with three Monsta 360s atm. Also waiting for Uncle Sam to return me a good chunk of change for one more upgrade biggrin.gif.. Gonna go push/pull on them too; that's should really make them heavy smile.gif

Good to hear you caught that in time thumb.gif

How's the hunt for the tube coming along?
