So far, one person referenced something to me, and two people answered his questions. I have stopped making threads on these forums because they seem to go unnoticed, but I figured this would be the exact spot I would get help. At least one person has tried.

As for an update, EK is replacing all 7 of the terminals that I currently have so that the terminal issue is fixed. But the issue of getting leaks from the fittings is frustrating. Even without pressure, the leaks are happening. I took all of the fittings off and checked the seals, and the o-rings are sealing very well (visually), and it is really hard to get the tubing out of the fitting because of the fit, but they still drip.

Did you strip the screw? Is it the fitting leaking or the plexi?

I can't state enough, the BitsPower Fittings are leaking now, even though nothing changed with them and they are sealing visually with two o-rings per fitting.

The Terminals are being replaced, but currently have good seals and are not leaking. That was the first issue.

Is it common to replace o-rings on 3 new fittings all at once? If so, that seems counter-productive to buying something new.

Do you use a lubricant when you installed the tubing? You may have damaged the O Rings in the Process. Human error in computer building is common place due to wanting the computer to be complete in a Timely manner. (I would know)

So far, one person referenced something to me, and two people answered his questions. I have stopped making threads on these forums because they seem to go unnoticed, but I figured this would be the exact spot I would get help. At least one person has tried.

As for an update, EK is replacing all 7 of the terminals that I currently have so that the terminal issue is fixed. But the issue of getting leaks from the fittings is frustrating. Even without pressure, the leaks are happening. I took all of the fittings off and checked the seals, and the o-rings are sealing very well (visually), and it is really hard to get the tubing out of the fitting because of the fit, but they still drip.


In addition to what's already been suggested . . .

You're not by chance trying to use 12mm tube with fittings designed for 1/2" tube are you . . . . I should think that would leak due to not enough compression of the o rings, although visually it might seem fine.

The Cautious One

Hi Cautious. At a month and a half, there was no rush at all. I have taken extreme caution with these because i don't have the money to replace parts again.

"But the issue of getting leaks from the fittings is frustrating. Even without pressure, the leaks are happening. I took all of the fittings off and checked the seals, and the o-rings are sealing very well (visually), and it is really hard to get the tubing out of the fitting because of the fit, but they still drip."

At this point, I am not sure what I am typing wrong. Here is the super long version.

Steps taken. when I noticed the terminal leaking (Issue #1) I removed the terminals and corrected the issue. Checked the O-Rings there, and the o-Ring seating area, the inner seating lip was broken off. I alerted EK, and they are replacing all of them. Taken care to make sure they were seated properly, since plexi is see-thru, I took my time putting it back on and can see the visual seal all the way around each of the ports, and the o-ring has no kinks or issues. Problem solved until new terminals arrive.

Attempting to fill the loop once the terminal was repaired, once I turned on the pump the first time, I noticed a Bitspower fitting leaking, not the terminal, since the initial terminal was on GPU 1, and the fitting that is leaking is the bottom side of GPU2, which was not touched at all.

Next step, turn pump off, and drain loop. Remove all of the terminals (again) and fittings and inspect every fitting. There is no damage, nicks, crack, flat spots, pinches, or imperfections that I can find. I install the tubing back into the fitting, and use a flash light to look in and see that both o-rings in each fitting has a solid seal around each of the tubes. Once the top of each fitting is screwed back on, the spread of the o-ring is solid all the way around the entire tube, and the tube is extremely snug.

a little bit of water was wiped onto the tube as well as the oring before pushing them in every time, so that they were not pushed in on a dry o-ring, as this causes failures that are easily noted.

Out of all 10 fittings that are in use, all show a perfect seal around the entire tube and 3 of them have allowed water though without any obvious break in said visual seal. That is why it is confusing me.

16mm tube/16mm fittings.

Can I borrow $100 to replace them? At this point, it is looking like the only option.

"But the issue of getting leaks from the fittings is frustrating. Even without pressure, the leaks are happening. I took all of the fittings off and checked the seals, and the o-rings are sealing very well (visually), and it is really hard to get the tubing out of the fitting because of the fit, but they still drip."

At this point, I am not sure what I am typing wrong. Here is the super long version.

Steps taken. when I noticed the terminal leaking (Issue #1) I removed the terminals and corrected the issue. Checked the O-Rings there, and the o-Ring seating area, the inner seating lip was broken off. I alerted EK, and they are replacing all of them. Taken care to make sure they were seated properly, since plexi is see-thru, I took my time putting it back on and can see the visual seal all the way around each of the ports, and the o-ring has no kinks or issues. Problem solved until new terminals arrive.

Attempting to fill the loop once the terminal was repaired, once I turned on the pump the first time, I noticed a Bitspower fitting leaking, not the terminal, since the initial terminal was on GPU 1, and the fitting that is leaking is the bottom side of GPU2, which was not touched at all.

Next step, turn pump off, and drain loop. Remove all of the terminals (again) and fittings and inspect every fitting. There is no damage, nicks, crack, flat spots, pinches, or imperfections that I can find. I install the tubing back into the fitting, and use a flash light to look in and see that both o-rings in each fitting has a solid seal around each of the tubes. Once the top of each fitting is screwed back on, the spread of the o-ring is solid all the way around the entire tube, and the tube is extremely snug.

a little bit of water was wiped onto the tube as well as the oring before pushing them in every time, so that they were not pushed in on a dry o-ring, as this causes failures that are easily noted.

Out of all 10 fittings that are in use, all show a perfect seal around the entire tube and 3 of them have allowed water though without any obvious break in said visual seal. That is why it is confusing me.

If all what you say is correct (And we believe you) Can you video a fill and pump turn on to show the leak in progress? I mean why not at this point? Since you have exhausted your options.

The Cautious ONe
