Diy Water cooling experiment "Project FLEXSEAL"


#203

g1/4 is bsp 1/4 just a british standard


#204

? talking about the neck of the rad not worried about g1/4 tapping


#205

well im lost on the discussion now cutting off the hose tube on these rads due to the water rated aluminum it gets shavings everywhere and splinters it would be a leaky mess


#206

No leave the part were in normal operation the hose would attach to the rad (the neck coming off the rad) thread the inside of that tube, plug that hole with a threaded cap that threads in, in that cap thread a g1/4 connection that goes through the cap to allow flow to standard g1/4 fittings. You could add a few gaskets to prevent leaking


#207

so basically what i did with barbs and flex seal


#208

flex seal need not apply so you can actually do maint


#209

well the barbs are sealed now to the rads


#210

yeah downfall of doing it that way, you could probably unseal them just would be a pita


#211

well this is project flex seal …


#212

I have more of a feeling the project got the name since that was the solution not that it started out with that name


#213

the flex tape and seal were bought just for this project so i dunno about that


#214

Once the loop is full gravity does all the work. just moving fluid. Still a tall case water cooled is a thing.

Just saw your pics in the Lounge and thought “this looks cool, is there a separate thread for this?, please let there be separate thread for this… THERE IS A THREAD!! Yeaaahhh” :heart_eyes:

Sorry, didn’t have anything to contribute. I just get excited for computer related dyi stuff, case modding and cooling related to be exact. Will lurk this one.
