Yikes that case is ugly. I'm watching TTLogan review it and I can't pay attention to what he's saying about the specs. It looks like an egg with racing stripes. eek.gif

Soooo

My coolant is slowly disappearing. I dont know where it is going. I have checked every fitting. Any ideas? Could it really just be evaporating?

The only area that is questionable is the drain plug on my 240 rad. For some reason it seems to have oily substance around it every 12 hours or so. But no drip. Its almost as if the coolant heats up, expands at that port/plug, gets around the O-Ring just slightly. But the consistency isnt the same as the coolant itself. And it isnt letting through anywhere near the amount of fluid that I seem to be loosing.

Im using Mayhems X1, Alphacool Rads, EK compression soft-tube fittings, and a few Koolance QDs. Now, Ive had problems with the QDs when you first reconnect them. Some of them will leak a little. But I know to check for that (and have) long before completely putting my case back together. Anyone else have coolant loss like this? Seems like Im adding about 10ml every 12 hours. I never had this problem when I had my hardline tubing setup. Any chance Im sucking air in some place? Im totally lost on this. If I had a slow drip I would just chalk it up to that. But I dont

When was this loop filled? My loop takes about 1 month of top ups to stabilize, depends how good you are at bleeding.

All soft tube has fluid loss,nothing to be concerned about. If its a new loop then it does take time for the fluid to level off as there is still air being removed even if its not totally visible.

Fairly easy to see what's going on here. Stick in the flow meter, and stick in a thermometer in various places inside. You will know soon enough what was going on, especially if the TIM spread was nice and the TIM hadn't dried up.

Finally some GOOD NEWS!



Water temps are now a max of 31c (I also haven't turned on my 560 rads, so temps should drop even more), and my Titans X are a max of 40c.

I'm so dang happy now.

EK is claiming their ZMT soft tubing has no fluid loss through the tube. I am not a tube material expert, so I submit this for those who may dispute the claim.
https://www.ekwb.com/news/ek-releases-new-ek-tube-zmt-soft-tube-for-liquid-cooling/
Quote:
ZMT stands for Zero Maintenance Tubing and EK-Tube ZMT is a high quality, industrial grade EPDM rubber tubing in stylish matte black. This tubing is – just like Norprene – designed to withstand harsh conditions for a very long period of time, offering a truly exceptional lifespan even under UV, ozone and heat exposure for many years. EK-Tube ZMT has no evaporation rate, which means that no liquid can evaporate through the tube walls.

Unlike most PVC and PUR tubing this high quality EK made EPDM rubber tubing ensures long lasting operation and does not suffer from a plasticizer leaching effect which can cause blockage (gunking) in your liquid cooling loop. This tubing also allows for very small bend radius! It is guaranteed to be hassle-free even in the long run, which is something other PVC/PUR tubing cannot offer! EK recommends EK-ACF Fitting series compression fittings for the use with this tube.

EK offers three different dimensions and provides OD (outer diameter) and ID (inner diameter) with every model. For every dimension, EK offers retail version with 3 meters of tube, but customers can also buy any length as “per meter” option is available as well.
