I think I need to at this point.

Well, the good news is at least your replacement borosilicate tube for the Aqualis 450 is on its way to you. Just got back from the Post Office

That’s great news. Thank you very much.
Maybe things are turning around.

Dang bro, I may have to ship my thousand dollar order back to PPCs just catching up with your issues.

Actually naw. I will say though that I am sorry for your issues.

And maybe remind you to turn your fittings simply to snug + 1/8 to 1/4 turn further. Your collars are tight when they stop turning. No more than that. I don't use the tools that come with any compression fittings. Flex or Rigid. Too much chance of having issues similar to yours.

The oring will compress enough to avoid leakage this way. Any further and you've now experienced what could happen when you rush things. Use this as a learning experience and soldier on. I look forward to seeing your loop completed and giving you solid temps.

My EK build is being held up by a back ordered 360SE. All good however since I will be building in an O11 Dynamic. Which I cannot get since they're all out of stock atm.

So not everyone has a perfect experience putting together their loop. Don't let your experiences get you down.

Looks to be a little bent as well, hopefully it’s still usable.

Tried to get cute and add to much in a small space, plus don’t know my own strength and wrench it too hard.

Since bad luck comes in threes I hope this is the end of it, though with my luck I just jinxed it.

...I have been following your odyssey (incl. on 2080 TI). Hopefully that famous light at the end of the tunnel will appear soon.

As to the two small cracks, go to CDN Tire and get some 'Seal All'...after letting it dry, apply another layer...I have used that on a high pressure fuel line for a car and it held the next 11 years (the length of time I had the car)

Spoiler!

Broken EK Rad Barb

Found some putty stuff used before to patch a hole in my sink. If it can fix that I suspect it should patch the cracks. Or so I hope.
Am leaving that overnight to dry. Just need the replacement glass for the Aqualis I dropped and broke and I should be good to go... or so I hope

Put the rest of my system together today, it’s looking nice. Very eager to try it. Am curious what temps I’ll see with this.

This is what I finally ended up with besides a few extensions

...hopefully the epoxy works - looks like a great 'list of ingredients' ! Perhaps you can post some pics later, once you've 'caught up' with the delays and missed usage of your rig

I just realized what my problem has been. Been leak testing by air and just realized that the Pressure equalisation membrane has been the source of my leaks from the start.

If I knew that I wouldn’t of broken my res in the first place. I always learn the hard way

No further than 6psi. Anymore than that and you risk bursting your rads. I have a Dr. Drop bike pump that I will be using to pressure test. 6psi should more than suffice comparable to the actual pressure of a single D5 Vario PWM pump.

Doesn’t the Pressure equalisation membrane negate testing that way?

The membrane allows gases to pass and thereby continously equalizes the internal pressure of the water cooling loop and the ambient pressure. Meaning leak testing by air doesn’t work if it allows the gasses (air) to pass.

I was wondering why I kept finding leaks from the reservoir, I figured it was from the gaskets and not a complete seal but I now think it was the membrane the whole time.

Thinking it was the gaskets was what made me take it out and drop it. Now I know better.
Taking the reservoir out of the loop shows no leaks by air so when I get my replacement glass I’ll put it back in and leak test the old fashioned way with actual water.
