Your noob mistakes when you first got into custom loops?

Mine include cutting a tube with the silicone insert still inside, heating and bending a tube without the silicone insert inside and accidentally ordering acrylic tubes instead of PETG then wondering why they were all cracking and splitting into 100 pieces when I used the pipe cutter I had used for PETG tubes on them.

I put ~3 liters of fluid into a loop before I realized that I had forgotten to put a plug in the 5th port of an AC UT60. The loop only took ~3/4 of a liter to fill.....

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Having my Pump and 3 Fans on their own independent power supply, forgetting to switch them on.
Wondering some time later why PC is running like a wheelbarrow with a flat tyre. Ah! <insert expletive> , waterblock is empty and Graphics card not fairing much better.
No damage done, Live and Learn I guess...

On socket 1336, if your motherboard is horizontal and you can somehow arrange to get a small amount of water to leak slowly into where the pins are then it collects there and doesn't leak out the bottom - it just fills up and covers all the pins. I find that distilled/deionised water doesn't really offer much protection if the CPU is floating on a socket full of it

My few loops went fine, though I went back to air when I went from 775 to AM3. Only real "issue" was trying to fit 7/16 tubing on 1/2 barbs. I got it eventually but I figured it'd be a lot easier than it was and getting it off was a PITA.

Had to do the ol' "lay-tubing-on-concrete-and-beat-the-ends-with-a-rubber-mallet" method to make it soft enough to stretch to fit the barbs

Over tightened the CPU block (EK Supremacy MX) which cracked one of the corners, so it leaked from the get go, although it took me a week to realize it. One good thing about lime green coolant, it does leave visible evidence.



Just hand tightened too, didn't think I was all that hard on it.

Doing a full hardline loop to completion and realized that i put the out at the top of the res and the in at the bottom of the res ... It was sucking from the top of the res and pumping liquid in in from the bottom... Scrapped the hardline and wet soft tubing after this.

buying cheap parts, this will only cost more in the long run.
