8 Months on WC, haven't drained and filled yet

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So my rig has been running for about 8 months since i last completed it. I haven't drained nor filled up again due to me being completely lazy and the fact that i need my computer for my work and can't risk it going down on me. My temps are just fine and i idle at around 28-30c with the settings in sig. Now should i drain and refill the loop anyway? I'm running just distilled water with a kill coil

as long as the water level is good and you dont see any algae bulid up should be fine to leave it like it is if it isnt broke dont fix it

if you temps are good and as long as the water is clear and not discolored/cloudy you have no need to drain it.

dont worry about it as others have said. I have been running mine for 14 months now since the last tear down and alls good

with distilled and kill coil you should be able to run for a LONG LONG time without worries.

I have ran systems for over a year without issues, then I normally upgrade or sell the system before much longer

Just chill and leave it. If it's not growing with mould and temps are ok then don't do anything
