how do you do maintenance on the loop?  sweat.gif

Thank God that it only require coolant topup every half a year or so, I think more than 6 months, when the pump sucked some bubbles and make a sound. Haven't touch the loop since 2013.

And how about dust you might ask? biggrin.gif I've blasted the heck out of it using compressed air. Bought 2HP air compresor. Hahaha.

Impressive. I started watercooling 6 years back with the xspc cpu kit, when immediately lost interest and sold everything after discovering how difficult to expand the loop for gpu. sweat.gif

but still sub this thread to gawk at other sifu's setup from time to time

Yeah, back when the currency was okay. biggrin.gif I've planned to buy Case Labs casing and was waiting for the currency to be okay. Till now, the currency even get worst and Case Labs shut down its business. Haha.

That and I've changed my hobby to diving and just maintain the rig.

Sick thing you got there, that steampunk looking thing is a reservoir? and Aqua Computer parts, what a quality. biggrin.gif

I think at some point CaseLabs was the case to buy.

Yeah, the white thing was my reservoir. White delrin/acetal reservoir with a window. I swapped out the original screws that held the window in for marine A2 stainless he head ones, and added even more around it. LOL.

In fact, whatever screws I could change, I changed to hex head A2 stainless.

those eloop fans are so damn mahal I don't have the heart to sell them. I'm still keeping them in storage. lol. I had a huge thing for the NB and aquacomputer when I was building my rig.

They ship internationally if I'm not mistaken.

Yup I have got that one, too. In a drawer waiting to be used some day again 😂
But got to pay for a version upgrade then, quite old already. Thats about the only downside with them.

On the other hand, they sell spare parts for reasonable prices and beyond regular shelf times.
This year I only ordered spare parts for my aquainlet & eheim pump which I bought used late last year.

So yeah they really are a gem.

But on the other hand for simple items Bykski n Barrow are very fine.
All my fittings (excl. sensors) are of those two brands.

Ofc, its still for sale. I've got the same. Together with a splitty (and if you're into rbg farbwerk) that's all you need.
Next time I clean radiators I'll switch those components back in.

Btw, I suppose you have their flow meter then, too.

This is a recent review showing how pretty darn accurate it actually is within a certain range.

Didn't get any flow meters from aquacomputer though. Relied on my pump read out. haha! I have quite a few temperature sensors though, the inline kind.

Hey guys, quick question. Where are you getting your parts from? Order directly online from websites like EKWB? Kena tax or not?

EDIT: Please ignore my signature - have not updated in years.
