    Default Adding extra radiator....

    Ok. I got a second radiator to bring my water temps down a little more.

    I currently have my loop going:

    Pump -> CPU -> GPU -> GPU -> Radiator -> Back to Pump

    There's a filler port teed in between the radiator and pump.

    I was thinking of just adding the raditor after the pump. Essentially putting the pump between the two radiators. Or I could just go from radiator to radiator to pump.

    Or should I put the second radiator somewhere else? Like between the CPU and first GPU?

    I'm running my 2nd rad between the first and second GPU's but that was just to make routing tubing more convenient. Personally my advice is to route it whatever way it takes to minimize the tubing added into your loop.

    I put the second rad between the CPU's and the GPU's. But it looks like the fittings are leaking. The o-rings are squished. Looks like I need to use some teflon tape. Funny... it's the same kind of rad and fittings used for the 1st rad which never leaked. Oh well...

    You've just over tightened the fittings. Take them out, put a tiny bit of petroleum jelly on the o-rings and put them back in and don't torque them down quite as hard. I had to do that with my BI X-Flow to keep the o-rings from squishing out.

    Well... to add insult to injury, the pump is dead too.

    Made a hell of a racket and now it just hums and doesn't move any water.

    *sigh*

    Gah, I've been hearing that they're more prone to failure than the D5. Sucks man, I think I'd RMA the beasty.
