Hey guys.

I am not new o watercooling at all, btu I do have a question. I have a few of these fittings in my current loop. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=24260
One of them started to leak, but not from where it threads in, but where the grip/rotary point is flush with the 45 degree angle. Anyone know if you can fix this yourself, or is it RMA time?

I was finally able to get my block apart (turns out the right sized hex came with my ek d5 top). My block has a couple of manufacturing defects. They don't seem to be too terribly serious though I'd like to get y'alls opinion on the matter. On the close up picture of certain spots, I've circled the defects that concern me


here's the block as a whole


The top left looks like two bent pins and the bottom right looks like a mess


A closer/better picture of the defects in the previous picture


What looks like pins that were cut too thin. I'm not too worried about these, should I be?


I didn't know if this was a defect or how the block is supposed to be on the inside, it has the same thing on the upper part of the block where it's solid, then tapers into being pins. I was hoping someone with an Apogee XT could look at it and tell me if there's was the same there or not



So basically what I want to know is whether or not these are very minor defects or things I should talk to swiftech about and have them replace. What do you guys think?

Unfortunately, I was getting about 2 drops a second, and I didnt even have the loop full yet, let alone powered on. Due to the horrendous mess it was making, I drained it again. So no pics and im not filling it just to let it leak.

Anyone else have any items like this they have had better luck with? If so, link please.

Man bitspower is usually top notch quality I am sorry to hear this! I would RMA.

I am not sure if this is still the case, but yours looks pretty pristine in comparison. Those defects appear rather minor, and shouldn't adversely affect temps.

alrighty. I knew that there were a lot of machining defects in the first sets of blocks but I wasn't sure how bad and how mine compared. ira-k suggested I use a razor and if a pin or two wiggle just take it out to keep it from going through my loop, so that's what I'll be doing here in a bit

Super ultra minor. Don't worry about it. Those pins will affect performance about as much as a flying hawk would affect the height of the ocean tide.

But it is a good idea to inspect your blocks. I have a Swiftech MCW60 that was machined the all the pins orientated 180 degrees from normal - it is massively restrictive compared to a typical block. Still works great in an isolated loop (maybe even better than a normal one), but I have to use thick walled tubing to prevent egress tube collapse.
