Nice green! I'm going to rebuild my loop and I'm going to mix in some green tubing with my current red tubing so I can get some Christmas look!

I have a question. Is it not possible to take the entire loop out of your case and put it on a table or a makeshift cardboard PC while testing for leaks ? If you're really afraid of breaking something or its your first time etc.

it would not be possible for me, but for a simple cpu only loop with a single rad you can do that. many people do.

I don't see the point of it though, and I think it is safer to leak test with it all in the position it will be in finally.
post #5555 of 106449
I find as long as you do at least a 24 hour leak test with an external power supply, you should be just fine if there are no leaks, if there are you fix the problems dry up the area and do another 24 hour leak test.

Well who wants a CPU only loop, pff. Why wouldnt it be possible for you ?

Also 24 hrs leak test is 24 hrs you cant use your PC. Guess there are no "loopholes" when it comes to watercooling ( get it ? )

also another question, is a WC'ed rig easy to move around, say for LAN parties, or would you have to empty the entire system and then refill it after you had moved it ?

I would not be taking a water cooled rig to a lan party, you want light weight for lan parties. A lot of us have very large cases for water cooling and a lot of gear in them, they can get quite heavy.

Its not so much the weight im thinking about, its not like im gonna be carrying it in my arms all the way, its more whether its actually possible. Like, does it have to stand upright at all times, or can I lay it down on the side without anything happening, and is it more sensitive to being shaken and stuff, when driving in a car, than an air cooled PC ?

CPU only loops are very common and a good idea if you change video cards a lot.

Take a look at my worklog and you will see why it would not be possible, my loop consists of 4 internal radiators, 3 GPU full cover blocks, a Mobo full cover block, a CPU block, a liquid fusion res, a pump, and a fill line. My tubing runs throughout the case, through panels of my case, and the SLI connector I have makes it so the loop must be filled with the block installed on the cards.
also, the mobo block would be near impossible to install on the mobo with tubing already connecting it to other components...

and no, no shortcuts for me with leak testing, I have had to many leaks when installing new gear to be OK with less.

as for lans, I do take classy to lans, but not very often because she is so big and heavy. when I do though, I do not do anything special, no need to drain the loop or anything. (that would be a terrible pain)

I see your point
Also yay, there might still be hope for a future WC system for me !
