  • PSA: Always leak test!

    Finally received my Ryzen 9 today. I had been preparing for it since it was first announced and had accumulated a nice collection of parts for my new build. New ram, NVME storage, monoblock, loop layout and coolant.

    Started assembling the loop, had everything ready except for the CPU. Had it delivered at lunch and proceeded to install everything so that I could start flushing the system with blitz part 2.

    Ger everything together get the cleaner in the system (very foamy) and start looking for leaks. Up to this point I have never had a leak test fail.....until tonight



    Moral of the story - Always check for leaks

    Needless to say Ryzen 9 will have to wait and Daz you have a new order to process

    Only air pressure tesing for past two ears, never looked back, but absoluteley not testing yoru assembly is stupid gambling woth parts. I even test individual components as GPU separately.

      Have never tried the air testing method. probably not as time consuming as with water testing. Regardless I am glad I caught it before the system was fully powered and as a result the only thing I have to buy are new rads. 2 x Alphacool XT45 X flow on order
