XSPC 360 leak...so sad.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This thing isn't even two months old. I'm real upset. It did an awesome job too. I didn't even have push pull and my i7 @ 4.1 under load only got to 55C. I assume it was happening since day one, because I'm almost positive I didn't do it considering where it leaks from.
If I weren't so anal about my computer and didn't check it twice a week witha flash light, I may not have found it. I did notice my water level drop, but I changed the loop twice since I purchased the rad and just assumed it was air bubbles. What sucks is this was my first XSPC product too, but don't worry, I never judge a company based off my first experience. i had trouble with my ASUS board at first, and I love that thing!
The only somewhat positive thing is that it is a slow leak and no where near any of my components, so I thought it would be okay to just leave it up and running until my new rad gets here and just keep an eye on it. I could RMA it, but than I wouldn't have a computer while I waited, and I need to play CS:S! After my new rad comes, than I'll try to get a replacement for this one.....sorry for the long rant, I just want everyone to feel sorry for me I guess.

That looks like a spot easily damaged by overscrewing....

This happened to me just email where ever you got it from I got it from jab-tech and they sent me a replacement without even having to send the old one back, just send pictures of the leak. I think mine leaked because of over screwing.

No screws though. All my fans are on the other side. Plus I only use the screws it came with and only screw them down until the head of the screw hits the metal or fan.

Yeah. I already bought a new one though. Thats okay, if they do replace it for me then I'll used it for my GPU

Whoa, hold it there. You can overscrew by doing that! It's better to check as you go down. (try screwing down before mounting)

Black Ice radiators have a slip of metal just underneath their screw holes to prevent that even though they provide woefully short screws.

No no no. I think you misunderstood or I just used the wrong choice of words. I never over tighten. I screw it down slowly and once it starts to take any effort on my part, I stop. I never try and get it tight like I would if I were screwing say, two pieces of wood together.

And I did check the distance between the end of the screw and the fins of the rad before mounting it. Besides, like I said there isn't a screw anywhere near the leak....

How do you know the water isn't leaking at the other end and dripping down there via gravity? Also, the amount of force required to puncture the radiator with a screw is very small.
