One thing that baffles me is I have a waterline going up into a port on the underside of one of my 480s (running from my GPUs), then a waterline coming out of a port on the top of my rad connected to an extender, then the line runs down the length of my case between 2 x 480s, goes into a top port on another 480 using the extender, then comes out one of the bottom ports, and runs to the intake on the top of my reservoir. I had to run the waterline the length of my case between the 2 x 480s because all the ports are only on one end of these XE rads.
Now, this loop cools my GPUs, both 480 rads sits on the top of my Caselabs TH10A (the picture that's my profile pic) so all the coolant flows upwards to the top of my case because I installed a reversal kit in my TH10A. When I start up the pumps, fill the res with enough coolant where the res is almost dry but the coolant starts coming back into the intake of my res, I have no problems leaking. If I add more coolant to the res, when the res is about half full, coolant starts dripping from one of the middle fans mounted to the underside of my rad (both rads are setup as push/pull). When the coolant starts dripping, I check around the ports, and everything is dry. No coolant at all is leaking from the ports, but it's dripping through my fan. I don't know exactly where it's coming from the rad, but I assume it's the shroud because I had all of my screws, which are blue anodized, cut specifically to length. So a screw can't puncture the waterline between the fins. Now, if I drain enough coolant from my res where the coolant coming in goes right back out (no additional coolant in the reservoir) the leak stops. How do you explain that?
As much of a pain this is going to be, I'm about to drain both of my loops and take everything apart because I now have coolant leaking from my 360mm rad too, which it mounted to the bottom of my case. I have 2 small pools of coolant where it's slowly been dripping, but they're nowhere near the ports. The ports on top of the rad are dry. I don't know about under the rad because I can't see it, but they still have the stop fittings installed that came with the rad. Once I get this thing apart I'll be able to tell where the leak was coming from because my rads are painted white and I have blue coolant.
