Well, We see all these threads about peoples loops leaking and horro stories, but we never see anyone create a thread saying "Hey my water cooling didnt leak".So here it is. The rules are simple, Simply post a list of your water cooling gear and post your experience with the products. To join the Club simply post your loop and your experience with it and I will add you to the list.

I want this thread to be for 1 purpose. To show people who are considering/never used watercooling how water cooling doesnt leak as much as the horror stories on the net.

Thing is tho that you can find all these threads on the internet saying how their watercooling leaked and horror stories. But hardly any that say My WaterCooling Didnt Leak. This thread is to show people new to water cooling that it doesnt always leak.

Its very simple

I think the idea was to see people that have working watercooling (? xD) and then that would help people by being able to ask them advice? Maybe?

A more useful thread to people with problems leaking or who are unsure of themselves might be a "How to minimize your risk of leaks in your new water cooling system" thread.
Another could be a "How to find and fix any leaks you have in your new water cooling system."

The cold truth telling me I need to do some maintnance to my loop. Its been almost a year and running strong. The only leak I've ever had was the first time I turned the pump on. Needed to tighten the rad's barbs a bit. Those loops do need to be check, cleaned, and new hoses from time to time. Its like a car, you have to give it a tune up with mileage and time.

In order of loop's cycle:

D4 pump
Black Ice 240 rad
Switech MCW60 GPU block
DangerDen Maze 4 GPU block
3.5" bay maker unknown



Pic is about a months old. At the time of pic I didn't have the second GPU on the loop.

Just be careful and watch your system carefully.

Gotta live life on the edge
wondering when you will get to see a luscious stream of water bellowing from your video card/cpu/nb/pump
