Unhappy Water Cooling gone bad

Heh.....

Need a bit of help pulling my hair out......

My Waterblock cracked over the weekend while I was away.

Don't think the cpu fried.... it will post and the HD runs (No vid though).

Not sure on the vid card though.... the fluid leaked right onto it, and there was no video when I got to the computer....

Gonna clean the card off at work tomorrow and check it out.

I'd seen a little bit of fluid on the bottom of the case last week, but I couldn't find a leak and it looked like it was probably just a little bit of spill from the last time I filled it so I let it go.

Don't know if they'll replace the water block or not. Find out tomorrow.

Could be a flaw in the block itself or possibly too much torque on it. I have a big water installed in a system and no problems so far, but I know of at least two people that have had their Tt cpu block crack and in both cases fried the video card. Hope you have better luck than them. In one case the pci-e slot also fried. I kinda got worried when that happened so I looked into what should be done in case of a leak. They say that after the affected parts are dry you should thoroughly clean them with electronic parts cleaner or alcohol and dry again. Just my 2 cents, I hope all is not lost. Good luck.

So I wonder if it's a problem that is endemic to T.T.-- anyone heard of any other blocks cracking?

Danger Den used to use a lower quality acrylic and suffered from some cracking problems at one point, but that issue has since been taken care of. AFAIK, Thermaltake is the only company whose blocks are still cracking.

I think it is because Tt's blocks are mounted by a metal H bracket that only covers a strip in the middle where all the pressure is probably concentrated rather than like most other blocks where the pressure is more evenly distributed. Or it's a quality issue or both. More 2 cents.

Are they aluminum, rather than copper?
