so I got the xspc rasa 750 kit, and after a painful installation, everything ran okay for about 2 weeks. Just yesterday, one of my pci slots stopped working. So I leaned my case against the wall to look inside and switch the wireless card to the other pci slot. Great, I forgot about my liquid cooling, air probably got into the tubes, or something, because my system shut off, and when I went to the bios, my cpu temp was 100C. I immediately shut my system off. I felt the tubes, and around the cpu block they were really warm, and a bit squishy. Fluid started dripping out as I squeezed the tube, which isnt so bad for my parts since im using feser one coolant, but I just spent $180 on this watercooling system, and already a problem. I let the pump run by itself until it cooled down, and now my system works, temps arent as good as before, but it works, but now everytime I move the tubes, fluid drips out, and thats obviously not good. Did I permanently damage my cooler? Did I melt my tubing? I feel sick to my stomach at this. I think this may be the last time I water cool.
