did yours fully cracked, i.e. have pieces broken off / the cracks reaching the water channel? I over-tighten mine and it has small cracks around the threads but nowhere near needing to order a replacement, I thinkSo word of warning to everyone - DO NOT tighten the screws holding the block together too much. I thought I had screwed them up okay, looked fine after doing assembling it. But came back half hour later and the bottom corner of where one of the threads are has cracked off
I've ordered a second one now and I'll be a lot more careful next time!
If you worry about Aquanaut, you should take a look at those huge distro plates, that have dozens of screws and can break at any point. Aquanaut "technically" is a water block + mini distro plate sandwiched in between. If one has experience with distro plate, Aquanaut is kindergarten stuff...
I ran the loop with case upside down, using the fill/drain port on that left fittings. I ran it at 100% the whole time, stop shake tilt until the bubbles come out and I topped up until the coolant level doesn't change anymore. Should I do that again but with speed change?Looks really clean
Sounds like water sloshing usually means that the loop is not a bled well enough. Have you tried changing the pwm while bleeding?
How and how long did you run the loop before closing it up?
My 3.25 is most silent at around 40% pwm, maybe try to go a little higher?
