Perhaps some watercooling veterans can help me here.
Not long ago I upgraded my soft tubing system to hard tubing and was rather happy with the results despite having to resort to some unconventional angles and routing.
Some time passed and all was going swimmingly, as time went by I started noticing liquid pooling around the seal on the tube running from the top of the GPU to the top radiator, the best I could do with it however was to dry it off and pray that it would not carry on. Unfortunately one evening before my eyes and behind the windowed side panel i watched the GPU drop away from the tubing and liquid spray up under pressure onto the motherboard, the PC instantly shut itself off and I pulled the power on it, whipped the panel off and managed to cram the tube back into the fitting and stop the leaking. I have bought and fitted a new Motherboard, new pump, and new fans as a repair and all is working again, while replacing the tubing I noticed that the offending connection was crushed and warped unlike any of the others.
The new system is currently working with improved temperatures but I am beginning to see a very similar warping on the same connection as before.
What am I doing wrong here? I assume it is a combination of the GPU heat and the weight of the waterblock just loosening and warping over time but it has only been about three weeks since the replacements, is there anything i can do to remedy this?
Thank you all.
