At least you weren't retarded like me and try to rewire a fan cable when the computer was on.

I had the red wire to my 3-pin connector where the sensor wire goes. So I had to remove the black and red (made it a bit easier to reconnect). Problem was that I accidentally touched the two and that caused a short resulting in a small plum of smoke in my Sunbeam tech station.

Luckily all of my parts were okay but the "zap" noise and the smoke thereafter scared the $hit out of me.

jump-start your psu if you need to test components, such as fans and pumps, leds, etc using a paperclip. easily and quickly turn on power and cut it if you need to. no need to power on the mb and major components. this is also a good way to leak test your wc setup.

Thank you thank you thank you. In retrospect it seems like a silly question but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Probably going to be re-doing my loop with a res... Should I use 1/2" ID tubing this time? CPU loop only and I'm currently using 7/16 ID.

Absolutely No harm in asking at all!

I love the combination of 7/16 id 5/8 od tubing with 1/2" fittings and wouldn't choose anything else, if you're using barbs anyway.

In my experience 1/2" tubing with half inch barbs left too much play and I doubt there is any difference in flow going from 1/2" to 7/16"

I'm using all 1/2" barbs right now.

I have also used only 7/16" tubing...works well for me, but I use compressions.
