Once you had a couple leaks that fear goes away. Things don't go poof right away unless you have a serious dust issue. Had a leak on my video card before and I waited till after breakfast to fix it. Yup the system was on and it was fine. Dried everything out with a hair dryer, re-plumed, re-fill and it was back online. You kind of grow to roll with the punches and accept that by water cooling things can be expected to go wrong.

All my leaks had happened within a seconds after loop filling up. If properly assembled a probability of leak development is close to zero.... Tear and wear is different story.

i agree with sadasuis and daz. once you water cool for a long time you just don't worry about it

I don't leak test. I've never had any problems because I double check and triple check my connections.

Never had a leak, never will.

lol, thanks.

Right now, I'm not even using hose clamps because my setup is currently case-less and is running on my desk.

I got this vision of Cowboy riding his case with a fill tube in one hand with coolant spraying everywhere going 'YEeeeeHa'!
