Default New stuff :)

New stuff has arrived from Petra's Tech shop today :





Well, thats what i call a tight seal

I won't be able to re-do my loop soon as things aren't going that good down here. My dad is currently at the hospital for a quite big surgery and he's gonna need our help (Me and my sister) and thats for sure. And this summer we're moving (everybody on it's own side) so we'll have to prepare the move for our dad. But now he's fine. I spoke with some of the nurse and it seems that he's fine. He'll probably go for about 2 weeks in one of those center that will take care of him and stuff. So, now that my dad isn't there im the one who brings money home for me and my job-less sister and i work during night.

Anyway, i have to go in a few mins to see him.

Good after-noon guys!

Sorry to hear about your difficult times. Glad your Dad will be ok.

Good idea getting metal fittings for the micro-res- I didn't realize that they came with plastic ones- I'm not a big fan of them.

Oh yeah......

Thanks Guys!

Yeah i hate plastic barbs. If you noticed in the pics i posted, all my barbs are now DD High-flow Metal barbs

Well, yeah my sister just called at the hospital to see if we could come to see him and it seems that he's real tired and currently sleeping. So we won't go there until later tonight if he gets up.

Honestly I use plastic barbs wherever they are not going to be visible. I find they seal MUCH better than metal barbs.

The seal on the hose is no problem, it's just that it seems you can't tighten them in their own fitting too hard or their threading might strip.

I used worm drives the first time around when I set up my water cooling loop. They are leak-proof no doubt, but they are a pain to work with. these days I use plastic hose clamps on everything that uses a high flow barb, and I use 7/16" Masterkleer over 1/2" perfect seal barbs on anything that I can't fit a hose clamp on (FuZion).

Leak-proofing is pretty easy actually.
