post #95071 of 107137
Guys, I need your help as well. I'm doing a mod to my reservoirs and I need something I can seal up the end of a PETG or Acrylic tube with? It will be in the res and coolant will touch it. I was thinking regular clear epoxy? What does the group think?


TIA

You need blue Permatex RTV from any auto parts store.

These rotary fittings seem to be prone to leaking at some point if i have to believe all these stories. Some of these rotary fittings, from different brands seem to be worst than others. I am using an Alphacool rotary myself and i have came across quite a few negative comments about them... I am wondering if i'm better off replacing it with something like a Bitspower or if i should just keep it in there?

How reliable are these Alphacool rotaries? Is it worth getting a Bitpower one and replacing the Alphacool, even though it doesn't leak whatsoever? A bit in a debate here of what to do..

Anyone?

I've had a few alphacool rotaries and they have all leaked to some extent. No experience with BP, but my EK and Barrow rotaries have never leaked once.

I've heard stories leaking BP rotaries. If there's any problem with your Alpha rotaries, you should see it right away. I have Enzotech, XSPC, Koolance & BP rotaries in my loop & none of them leaking. No brand is immune to QC issue.

I'm starting to think that tube reservoirs might not be possible in my case. I have two side windows, a front window, and two top radiators, plus the 120.2 fan adapter for the flex bays. I might have to go the bay res route.

So what is the problem? No mounting spot?

Yeah, I think so. I haven't seen an S8 optioned like mine, so I have no reference picks to see if it is even possible.
