  • Dimwit created a new topic Question on T-line plugs... in the forums.
    Hi guys, I noted that your brass plugs don't come in the 1/2" ID size which I use for a number of systems. I don't want a fillport, and am wondering if you will be getting in some 1/2" plugs or you have another suggestion that isn't a $10 answer (straight through plus barb and screw-in plug!)?

    Hey Johnny, interesting question.

    I am going to bet the answer is no, unfortunately. Big-houses are even less likely to make blocks unless they have some indication of large production runs, and this doesn't look like it will fill the bill in that department. If DD says no, you're lucky if EVGA is making a water block themselves!

    Nice pictures, and a lot of them. I found the internal scheme and color consistency excellent - and was very interested to see the detailed pictures of the DD case in its various stages of construction. Was just in Portugal and am sorry I didn't know about this sooner!

    I am thinking about one of these cases for the next construction demo and all your work was VERY much appreciated.

    Bom trabalho, e espero que o meu da metage d'impresao! Muito obrigado,

  • Dimwit created a new topic Question on Compression Fittings in the forums.
    Hi,

    Dimwit here buying another loop's worth of stuff, and all my stuff is sitting in the cart because I need two questions answered before I can press the buy button (which I would like to later today -MOnday the 21st of March!):

    1) Fittings, I want to use the 3/8-5/8 DD compression fittings on the loop, and have selected this option with all the components that will have barbs (TDX, 580GTX block, GTX480 Rad, DDPRo 12v pump... ) My questions on fittings are

    Do the barbs that come with these itmes need to be changed out to match the 3/8 compression fittings, or is that what I am selecting when I ask for the 3/8 compression fittings? -->I'm not getting the compression fittings, but rather barbs that will work with the 3/8 compresson fittings? Or is that wrong and what I am receiving IS the compression fittings which are barb and closure in one? Sorry since I am not familiar with compression fittings, I simply don't know.

    2)Monsoon Aluminum reservoir: see my new thread in Reservoir section or briefly:Since its aluminum (even though its anodized), isn't this going to require I keep an anti corrosive in the system? If not, I will get one, if so, I will go with a different reservoir. Thanks for your earliest reply! Have a 580 burning up, please help me buy this stuff quickly! :)

    Thanks!

  • Dimwit created a new topic Aluminum by any other name... ? in the forums.
    Please tell me I'm wrong and should buy one of these!

    Now I wear the name for a reason, but in my months of reading when I first started liquid cooling (because of YOU guys! ;) ) I thought I read that aluminum and copper, never the twain shall meet, and even if anodized you are only avoiding corrosion until some weak point of the anodizing layer is pierced.

    This requires you to maintain an anti-corrosive in your coolant in the event the anodized layer is pierced without your knowledge (likely), and the knowledge that anti-corrosives only slow the corrosion (they do not completely halt it) seems like a reason to avoid this material.

    I would really like to buy one of these Monsoons as they look incredibly cool, and I happen to need a cooling system right away for a 3D vision system that is burning a 580GTX alive... Hope someone can answer me as I would like to order tomorrow at the latest (Monday March 16).

    Thanks for any opinions...
