My System Specs

Default Hole in a Rad

Hey guys, most of you know that i am building my first WC setup and now I have a major issue. This morning I was FINALLY assembling thing when the door ring. I get surprised by the sound so I drop my screw driver in the rad. I hate you UPS guys bringing me some Fk*** OCZ ram. Now there is a hole in the rad and it is leaking. The hole is at the opposite side of the in\out hole so on the top at the complete back of the rad. If you guys have advice how to fix it please tell me so i can carry on building my loop. Or it will take 2 or 3 additionnal week to buy another rad. Maybe more. Thx you HWC!

I use JB Waterweld. Grab it from Canadian tire. Essentially you gotta use epoxy

Put a raw egg in it to stop the leak.

use jb weld use the long set stuff not the quick have used it to fix many many rads very easy to use. do not use an egg it's an old car trick to keep you running, like the pantyhose thing. or if you have a soldiering iron you can just do it that way both work well jb weld is crazy strong so i go with that.
