My Recently Deceased Thermaltake Spedo Build

  • Intel Q6600
  • ASUS P5N72-T 780i Motherboard
  • Palit GeForce 9600GT
  • 8GB Kingston HyperX 1066 Ram
  • 1TB Samsung Spinpoint Drive
  • Thermaltake Spedo Case

Watercooling leaked and fried the motherboard and graphics

i tried watercooling for around 2 weeks, i just didnt feel comfortable with water running around my system even with air tight seals and compression fittings.

I guess your just an unlucky guy and at the end of the day its tuff tities!

pretty crazy build dude, sorry bout the leak. Most of us have been there, with me it was back in 2006 and I had a top of the range shuttle, then thought I'd watercool it. Killed the board, 2 processors and my graphics card and put me off for a while. Undersized tubing is definitely the way to go though. Better luck with the new rig dude!

Shame about you rig dude. It looked gert lush (showing my regionality there) - I love coils on tubing.

I thought watercooling fluid was meant to be ion-free, cos it would only short something if it was able to transfer a current which means there must have ions in the liquid? Just seems a bit odd that a liquid for use around electrical components should be electrically conducting is all. I am a watercooling noob though so I'm yet to experience such things.

bahahaha, those damn duff clippies!

and yeah, i guess i did learn alot from doing this but it kinda sucks that it cost me a really nice motherboard, 2 graphics cards (i might post a picture of what it did to the pci pins) and left me with a ton of waterblocks for a board nobody uses anymore!

I did use feser 'non conductive' coolant but it still managed to bork all my parts. With it constantly running against loads of copper blocks it wouldn't surprise me if it got conductive almost immediately :/

Aye its only non conductive if the enviroment is perfect. My rig H&H had a problem with some duff threads in the reservoirs and it dumps a load of coolant on my whole rig, that dried out and it was all ok

Its more luck than anything else though.
