"Official Accident thread" ?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
You know that commercial airline pilots are made to study every major/minor accident that happens in the past and are briefed on the accidents that occur annually. This is a great way to train them to never ever ever make that mistake again.

Here I am a noob that is scared to death to build my first loop that I already purchased parts for. I see the Official Essential thread which has been very helpful. I feel this would be a great addition.

I think it would be a great idea to consolidate all accidents into one thread. So someone like me can study it and know all the different mistakes made so I would never ever ever do them on my first try. Just like airline pilot so I can train my self to never make any mistake.

You will be fine if you take your time and do everything slow and make sure all your tubes are cut good and on tight use clamps or wire ties. And you should add a t-line with a drain port at the bottom of your loop to make it easy to drain if you need to.

Lol what iv done a few times on accident is over fill my res and 1 time i pulled off the wrong tube not paying attention.

My CPU water block was leaking when i installed my WC system the first time so i took the mobo out used a hair dryer in warm mode and did that for hours to get it dry, good thing that i was using non-conductive coolant my mobo still lives after 2 years.. So here is the first step that you can NOT ignore, always do a leak test. ALWAYS.

Here is my thread http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-now-what.html

lol opps i was making the point iv had mutiple leaks and always stuff surived. But in all honesty if i left my pc alone and didnt mess with it i would never had any leaks mine were caused from taking water blocks off mutiple times trying to get better temps or just deciding i wanted to change my loop for the 1000 time. When its running i dont have leaks its just when i get the bright idea that i should try to change somthing lol and getting lazy from doing stuff so many times taking it for granted that i almost can do stuff blind folded.

When its running i dont have leaks its just when i get the bright idea that i should try to change somthing lol and getting lazy from doing stuff so many times taking it for granted that i almost can do stuff blind folded.
I guess that is a glimmer of hope then... to have multiable leaks and never lost anything.

lol i tell you compressed air and paper towels work wonders even when i had leaks i probly didnt let anything dry more then a hr but everytime i had any sorta leak the system was off. Now when i have to change somthing i put paper towels in key points that i know water likes to hit and that keeps everything safe. All my big leaks happend last year in the first week of setting up my water loop was still learning how to do everything once you get it all down you learn little tricks to use to make sure you dont have any leaks if you have to unhook anything. When i first got my loop i was scared to death like you lol never going water and having a friend that killed parts when he had it but overtime it don't really scare me anymore just try to take it slow and pay attention to close details.
