Leak in T-line
I recently bought a copper t-line from Canadian Tire, 1/2" . I built a new water cooled PC as my 2nd pc. Used old asus p5nsli, e6600 and 4 gigs of ddr2 ram. I bought a swiftech mcp655, mcr 220 qp res and apogee GT off of vortex to put in it. I started leak testing and right way it was leaking out of my t-line. i have got zapstraps on it already, as i could not get any little ring thingys *can't remember the proper name :P right now* over top of the t-line. Since it is a qp res, should i just take the t-line out and fill it from the res?

that copper "t" will not work as there are no barbs to create a seal and water will simply bypass and leak.

Get a proper t.

Or use the qp res and ditch the T-line. And that "little rig thingy" is called an o-ring.

My guess is that he's talking about worm drive clamps.

If you already have a res in the system then I agree that you should ditch the t-line.

"zapstraps" = worm gear clamps? Geez, I taught he meant tye-wraps...

No I meant those "ring thingys". "zapstraps" = tie wraps is a new on on me too.

Phob what tubing did you use? I only use the 7/16 stuff because it fits nice and tight. I havent tried the canadian tire T-lines and 1/2" tubing yet.....
