I like the 90 degree CSQ fittings but the 45 degree is not my kind

So I've been working on my build for a while. I've got a LOT of EK stuff (pump, fittings, GPU water block, CPU water block...etc.) and for christmas, the wife got me the 480XE.
Well after getting it together and finished a few days ago, everything seemed fine.
Well about an hour and a half ago the water level in my res dropped about an inch. I thought it was air trapped in the radiator but watched it anyway. 3-5 minutes later, I hear 1....then 2 fans start making a buzzing noise. I shut it off and start to investigate. I noticed a red puddle on the foot of my case. I unplugged everything and rushed to the kitchen table to find the source.

I suspected it was the rad and immediately thought that I had made a screw puncture and it was just now starting to leak.

After getting the back fans off, none of the rails or tubes were damaged. There is what appears to be a source from the middle of the rad where a leak started and sprayed coolant all over.








Its like a rail in the middle busted.
Has this happened to anyone else? I cant even see a hole as it "seems" deep.
Now I"m down a rad and possibly a couple fans (even though the HP fractals arent that great).
I got the rad from PPCs.


The blood red ek coolant stains everything it touches including the white sleeving that I had done.
Sorry if I sound abrasive but I am wicked pissed right now.


::edit:: the middle of the rad doesnt have any fin damage. Thats just the sun's reflection off of the coolant.

I'm in the process of finishing my first custom loop build, which is *almost* exclusively EK based in my Ncase M1. I'm curious if this loop, with the exception of being a pain in the ass to fill, will work out okay. I'll come back with better pictures once it's finished.

I've loved checking out all the builds in here as I've chipped away at mine. I'm excited to be part of the club!

I have six fittings that's not 90, but more like 86 degrees

i was told they changed 90 fitting suppliers recently. Alot of complaints about loose and leaking 90s.

I am terrified of my EK 90's. If they leak you can usually massage the tubing to get them to stop and then pray they never move again. If using rigid tubing you are screwed.

The EK 90s suck bunghole...you can already tell they're crap when they spin wayyy too easily. I had 2 of mine leaked and thank god i caught it before it was detrimental to my system. Too bad i have so many and i haven't had a chance to swap them out for something else. Next time i drain my loop i'll swap all of them out, i heard they stopped making it or issuing recalls because there was a bad batch of it...which i've gotten

It seems like it, because I need 1 more to complete my build and everywhere I have checked is out of stock indefinitely.
