Ek bridge leaking

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Oh man...and just when i thought my leak testing was going well.
Seems its leaking where the links attach to the waterblock...guess i didnt tighten it enough. I don't have a drain line or flow stopper...how can i take the 580s blocks and all out without draining the whole loop? 3/4" od tubings almost impossible to zip tie shut.

You can edit the title of the thread you know..

But that sucks man, maybe you can tighten them without taking everything apart? Od you happen to have an angled allen key.

Got to plan your drain when you put a loop together. I think you just had a worst case scenario there.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO D:

If you need someone to help you with your rig I'm not too far away.

I will pray for your rig and those three beautiful 580s.

Luckily...i only really spilled about 10 oz of water. Guess its time for a shakedown and drying...as well as a proper drain line install. Thanks man...i hope my babies survive this ordeal. Somehow...i knew the bridge was going to grief me. At least it happened while there was no power goin to anything except the pump...and it was an external psu...*whew*

You should always have some quick clamps like from Home Depot around.
