possible leak during the test

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
one of the plugs on my GPU block leaked a bit at the beginning of the test. I tightened it a bit then loosened it a bit, the problem was I think the rubber ring was too compressed... it hasnt leaked in the past 15 minutes ish and I plan on running this test for another day. The rubber ring still looks weird and pressed, if it doesn't leak in the next 24 hours, can I proceed? thanks.

If it was me, I would've replaced the O-ring just so i dont get paranoid in the future, but if it doesnt leak within the next 24 hours, 24 hours being the average amount of time people leak test here, then I think you're good ^_^

If you tighten up the plug to the point where the o-ring is squished then there can be a chance of a leak.

Just tighten it so that it's snug.

yeah I'm a bit paranoid... I took it off the big fat rubber ring and put on 2 small ones then tightened it good, doesn't seem to be leaking... we will see.
something wrong with that rubber ring, i think it was too loose, the other caps tightened pretty well without the ring being distorted.
