So, as I was realizing that I noticed that fluid was starting to slowly come up from the empty screw holes so I rushed and put all the screws back but i'm thinking something like 1/5 cup of coolant spilled in the process. Is this a lot? Anyone know for sure it was just the removal of the screws that allowed it to leak and not some other kind of damage that could still be present? Trying to find out before I place it on top of my 1090t >< any help would be much appreciated, thanks.
. . . . I'll give you WHAT I did for a guy who did just the same, and came to me for help on re-placing/re-filling this closed system:
Keep in mind: U DO this at YOUR OWN RISK ! ! ! U COULD Short the PUMP OUT IF you place submerged toooo FAR ! !
Best way i found to do and IT work's is with the H50 alone = NO Fan's attached and hooked up to a separate PSU, (with short'd
wires to run, like to Leak test...), I'd have the CPU head ONLY - Slightly submerged
, for only the part of the CPU_Block-plate_Head
for with the screw's all loose and H50 is running within a tub/bucket of distilled water...[ yes, you can have the Radiator laying submerged,
too, IF your container is big enough]....Pretty much is pulling in the distilled water & the H50 solution mixed within at the same time is like
flushing out the bubbles and filling up.....then slowly tightened each and every screw of the plate......Even better to do when just changing
the tubing.......again, just my way of giving this a go at, and I am NOT
responsible for IF you placed the CPU Block too Far into the
solution and Short'd out the Pump
.......you can try this
method at YOUR OWN Risk, IF you dare.....
......just my 2
worth of mentioning for one way of Help . . . .
