No that is not normal. Your barbs only need to be hand tight. Try a different fitting.

Reseat it and make sure it is down tight. It definitely should not leak.

ok its really werid... sometime i saw mirco-leak.. sometime i didnt see it anymore... the werid part was water in the tube was raising up like 1/2 inch than before... so what is your opinion?

i stressed the computer by game, movie, and some benchmarks... no water leaking yet except ek ddc top problem...
