Yeah that would probably solve it. It feels like the nut is sticking to the tubing when your tightening it.

Somewhat. I ended up just going back to my old 3/8 1/2 for a majority of the tubing and used the 3/8 5/8 for some of the tight bends. Filled loop and found out my pump is dead, haha.

I've wasted far too much time on this and a couple of other builds in the past few months dealing with complications and DOA gear - cutting my losses at this point and moving on. This thread should prove useful for anyone who encounters similar difficulties with Primochill (or any tight tubing) moving forward though. Thanks all for the assistance!

It was issue with bad size conversion. Most manufacturers moved to slightly smaller tube 15.9mm x 12.9mm a while ago.

Got in a new pump and some Feser tubing. It's amazing how much easier the Feser is to work with than the Primochill. No problems with the compression rings, and it feels far more flexible in general. Just need to bleed out these air bubbles and I'm good to go. The TJ08E has a small lip at the front top which partially blocks the two fill ports on the Moonsoon V2 dual bay res .

Yeah I found it so much easier to work with than the Primochill,,,,,,but boy oh boy....dont mention you're using Feser Tubing over on OC.Net or you'll be blasted by all the sheeples telling you how "bad" that tubing is and to switch to Primochill....and dont dare ask some of them to explain "why" and question it.... kinda humerous really ;)

I have learned to tune out senseless fanboyism long ago

Now if only Feser had some dark purple tubing...

Small follow-up to this - I chatted with a fellow over on overclock.net that indicated the concerns people had with Feser was due to plasticizer leeching, as well as a first hand account of this occurring to him. I'm not sure if this is still a concern for their modern tubing or not but it's easy to keep on eye on things with the illuminated bay res.

The build was completed last week by the way, for those curious:

TJ08-E - Imgur

Components:

CPU - Intel i7 4770K
Motherboard - Asus Z87i-Deluxe
RAM - 16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP
GPU - Asus Radeon R9 290X
PSU - Corsair AX850

Watercooling components:

CPU waterblock - Koolance 380i
GPU waterblock - Aquacomputer Kryographics (Nickel/Plexi), passive backplate
Reservoir - Monsoon Series 2 Premium D5 Dual Bay Reservoir
Radiator - Phobya Xtreme 200mm Radiator
Fittings - Bitspower Compression Fittings (3/8ID 5/8OD)

Hey, how are your temps with this setup.

I love the TJ08B-E case. Too bad I can't find the Ewwwww (windowed) edition around here.

Good luck!
