How do you prevent condensation? - Page 3

It doesn't seem the be leaking now. It only seem to leak when my res is completely full like it should be. When there is a few mm or so it doesn't leak, fill it back up leaks again. When I opened the red a few of the fins up at the top side were bent. I just sent jab tech a message asking them about this and telling them about the rad.

its presure im guessing when your rad is completely full might be more presure in the system making it leak thru a small hole. I have doubts you did it if its so small it take a completely full loop to get it to leak probly came with one in it but fun part is convincing xspc or jab-tech you didnt cause it.

WOW, thats not going to change to pressure enough to make a difference(I don't think you could afford a gauge that could read the difference if such a gauge existed), you should take everything apart and test each part.

Well you are wrong. I filled it up again, watched it. Guess what few drips. Got to that res level and was fine. I messaged jab tech and am going to have to send me out a new rad. if they don't no biggie I will just buy a nicer one from their competitor. :trollface:

Still isn't the pressure. Your pump is still pumping at the same rate whether your res is half full or completely full, I'm just saying it has nothing to do with pressure. Did you use Teflon tape? Your radiator could very well be faulty lets not rule that out.

Since your loop is leaky you should take it apart and test individual parts for leaks, clothes pins make for a great way to add pressure(anything that can cause a kink).

I don't think you quite understand me. They way it is in the OP with the towels and paper towel. I check it every 10 minutes or so no leak. I didn't use Teflon.
BTW Yes the rad IS faulty. I think I said that in my last post... lol. I don't know why call it vodoo magic, pressure, space warp magic juice, when the res is full it leaks out to get a few mm out. A leak regardless that needs fixing. So I put in a message with jab tech to replace the radiator. If that doesn't work I am going to buy a new one. It IS definitely 100% the rad. Nothing else is leaking or having any problems. Does it need replaced? Yep and I am going to replace it. Is it OMG BBQ LEAK ZOMG NOA FIXOR. Kinda.. but it works as is now with no leak. Still going to be safe and get a new rad.

BTW, you prevent condensation by keeping your water/system temps above your current dew point. That's it. It does not matter if your rad, or your system is outside. Aside from serving as a dew point variable, absolute humidity percentage is not a factor. Above dew point = No condensation. Simple.

I don't understand dew point and all of that too well to be quite honest. But basically with those temps in the OP condensation is impossible, period of a story. Correct? And you don't have to but if you could in lamens terms explain dew point that would be awesome and rep worthy.



And I am all right about what I said in those last few posts, right?
post #29 of 40
In a nutshell, it is the temperature at which condensation (dew) begins to form. You need at least your relative humidity reading at the OP temperature in order to determine whether you were subject to condensation, or not. For example, I am currently at 20.6°C dry-bulb (temperature), 47.0% relative humidity, 29.55 inHg and 8.4°C dew point. This effectively means that I can bring my water temps down to 8.5°C and not condensate *with the loop running and the system off*. Plus/minus metering accuracy of 1°C, add another 1.5°C as a buffer to ever changing conditions, and we have a conservative 11°C. But once the system is up and running and loads are applied (temps rise), the dynamics change once again.

I suggest you take the radiator out of your case, and look under where the fans are (take them off the radiator) chances are you punctured a tube in the radiator with one of the bolts for the fans.
