-or- apply a bit of heat using a heat gun (be careful w/ this one) or a hairdryer under low mode.

I use this when trying to squeeze new tube on the compression fittings I have

Submerge the ends of the 7/16 tubing in hot/boiling water to loosen it up and it should be easier to put on.

To get 1/2" tubing over 7/16" Barbs all you have to do is put the end of the tubing into some hot water for about 30 seconds before trying to shove it over the barb. This will soften up the tubing considerably and make it a lot easier.
Thanks guys. I'll grab some distilled water and an exacto knife on the way home and finish this guy off tonight.

Any recommendations against the kill coil? Some people have been recommending other additives for anti-bacteria. I'm some what worried over galvanic corrosion that silver might introduce though it is probably ok.

No real reasons to chose PT-Nuke over a killcoil, and I could say the same thing about the coil. Basically there is no real difference between them.

Lawl all I do to put my tubing on (7/16) on the 1/2 fitting is just make it a little wet with your mouth or something (spit on it hahahaha) and it works

While that is true it will not hurt anything if you add PT-Nuke or silver coil in the water.

I just blow some hot air in the end and the tubes slid right on. really no reason to spit on it

Thanks, I'm hoping I get some decent temps out of this. I'm still considering getting 4 more GT-15's and doing push/pull setup but going to see how this goes for now.

Another to note is that the EK supreme HF now comes pre-installed with Jet Plate #1 (most restrictive with only two slots).

I think it would also good to know to pay attention to the thicknesses of the thermal pads before cutting. I made a mess because I didn't and had to patch things back to the right size.

Got back late yesterday but got the distilled and finish connecting all the hoses for the setup. I ran the system and bleed the air with the computer not powered for 2-3 hours.




I've got the res /pump setting on a getto setup for now until I can get something more permanent to mount it to. I've also changed the fitting on the res from the top (shown) to the bottom one which removed the small kink in the tubinig.

I also tried adding a small drop of dawn (dish cleaner) to the loop after seeing a thread about removing air and it's worked like a charm thus far. I still having put the kill coil in as I'm still waiting for a 120 rad before I finalize the loop.

I got the computer powered up and ran some really quick temp tests yesterday.

With the CPU stock (i7 920 @ 2.8 GHz) the idle temps were 28-30C and load was at 49-51C with ambient around 26C and no load on the GPU's.

With the CPU overclocked (4.2 GHz @ 1.36 Vcore) idle was around 29-30C and loaded (1 hour on prime95) was at 58-60C.

I lowered the Vcore to 1.275 and the overclock to 4.0 GHz and temps where around 56-58C. Still got some messing around to do here.

I turned of prime95 and ran Furmark and fully loaded the GPU's (2x HD6950 @ 900 MHz clock, 1400 MHz mem w/ shaders unlocked)

Temps got to about 44C max which I ran overnight and it stayed there.

I'll get some screen shots tonight and run some more tests.

I forgot to ask what kind of temps I should be expecting with this kind of setup. Is what I'm getting so far ok?
