What would you say is best?
  • Assemble and leak test outside the case
  • Empty the case, assemble and fill the loop, and leak test. Re-install the parts into the case.

I'm leaning towards option 1 atm. But it means jump starting my spare PSU.

The post above mine made me realise i've forgotten to order fan grills too :S

Personally... Leak testing outside of the case is not a bad idea BUT if you take it slow, check and double check each step of the way as you build, doing things inside the case the first time around is not a problem.

Personally, the way I see it... you leak test outside the case you still need to undo everything and reassemble everything inside the case again. This give you twice the opportunity to miss making a good connection or something. So, I just build it all inside the case the first time around.

The case come with a jumper connector for your 24-pin connector. this will allow you to power up the PSU and feed the pump without applying power to your motherboard and such which minimized any problem should you see a leak.

That's a good point. Unless i can somehow put it into the case without disassembling it.

I really just want to check to see if my pump/res is ok before i install it. But i suppose i'll be able to see any cracks without water.

Looks like i'll be taking my PC apart this weekend then. It takes me hours, lol.

they say leak test 24 hours but for me i just put everything in and leak tested inside the pc with the jumper thing they gave you so no power to motherboard or anything other then water pump so if there was a leak i would just have to dry it before plugging it back in. it saves you time and it doesn't tamper with your tubes cause you got it in the first time, doesn't mean you'll get it back in the 2nd time with out leaks...

and if you order the kit it comes with fan grill for every fan that comes with the kit

I simply install the barbs and assemble the parts outside the case when it comes to a new kit. Since this is your first time and also for all the parts, you want to make sure you have no water leaks with the block, rad, or reservoir. If everything is good, then you only have to install and trim the hoses to fit exactly. The hoses are the least likely to have issues IMO. I have extra used tubing laying around, so I use it for physical testing of parts.

I have taken apart my loop at least 6 times so far between maintenance or component replacement. As I mentioned (as have others), if you are careful enough, you should not have a problem. I leak tested for about 2 hours personally.

Also, if anything gets wet, dab with a towel (preferably lint free paper towel), let it dry out overnight and use compressed air to blow away any paper or cloth towel fibers away.

I'm going to leak test overnight tonight. I'll have to leave some paper towel down though, so i'll be able to see if there are any leaks when i wake up (inb4 the whole loop leaks and drips down through the floor to downstarirs...)

Looking forward to going back to watercooling

So glad it comes with grills. I'll have 4 fans and only 2 grills though. Nevermind.

I like the look of grilles on the fans inside my case. It also protects fingers!
post #7269 of 13773
I managed to catch my knuckle on a delta fan last week, i actually swore lol.

I might go with just a push fan config, i'll loose about 4-5 degrees but it will make mounting easier (rx rad) and i'll have the right amount of fan grills. 2 AP15s should be able to handle it right?
post #7270 of 13773
leak test for me is like 10 minutes then put everything together....hehehe

if ur confident on what u build then ur all good to go...but if ur not then u need to leak test...=)
