my test run!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So Ive read about setting up a test run for 24 hours to check for leaks and all that, but question is..should i set the water blocks on the table, on a plate, on their side or what? Or does it really matter?
- Ive read just to dry fit your system, cut the tubing for your system and test it away from your equipment so there will be no complications but the copper bases of the water blocks (cpu and gpu)have me worried, should I be? thanks

Also I have an extra power supply laying around, is there anyway to hotrod it so that it can run my pump while still having my system running in my room away from the water

Well for the 24HR leak test you can have the blocks facing down like they would be on the CPU.

I'd actually suggest installing the block(s) so the tube routes where it will be in a normal situation, because otherwise it's testing in bends that aren't what they will be like when it's installed.

Get some big sheets of paper and lay everything out on it. Even if there is a tiny leak and the water evaporates it will still wrinkle the paper.

I plan to use non-conductive fluid in my system just to be 100% sure as well, so that is always an option to remove worry about leaks. It's expensive, but cheaper than a new system.

Jump the green wire with a black wire on your PSU. (green = ON. black = ground)

This will turn on the PSU.
