I can see how someone might not want to go out and buy a 4+TB SSD right now, those are still kinda pricey (using my HDD for shadowplay recordings, for example)I know there is always that guy that poses this question when HDDs are brought up, but I'll do it anyway...
Why, in this day and age, where SSDs have the capacity and the low pricing they have, would you ever want an HDD in your main build?
Let's not even put SFF in the equation, b/c that only makes this more rhetorical than it already is... it just makes no sense to me. If you have a ton of photos, film, or music... build a server PC away from your desk to save on the horrific spinning noise and case bulk, and leave all the quiet sex-appeal on your desk to the SFF cases with M.2 drives and SSDs.
I'm not telling anyone how to live their lives or anything, b/c you do you... but I have a hard time even recommending SATA SSDs anymore b/c M.2s are so well priced and have decent capacity, and all without the cable mess lol.
No, I’ve tested the entire loop parts to parts and fittings to fittings.that's sad, maybe it's just a fitting to tight or something?
Or is it leaking elsewhere?
That scares the crap outta me bc I’m not the type of person to check for pressure drop before slapping it in and setting and forgetting... do ya’ll have insurance for your rigs? ?No, I’ve tested the entire loop parts to parts and fittings to fittings.
tested the radiator only, and I’ve seen e the pressure drop. I’ve put some water inside, closed and tilted.
It’ a corner inside the radiator where the water drops. I think it is a faulty one.?
I will use a PE for now.
That EK leak tester is amazing! Just used it yesterday. Saved my build for sure.BAD NEWS, the XE leaks! I have to swap it, so the ALL IN loop have to wait!
(Checked with the EK Leak Tester and with distilled water just in it)
Just buy one of the leak testers. I know $40 is a bit but at the same time it's not when you're talking watercooling. You won't spend a better $40 for the hobby. The EK leak tester saved my butt yesterday. If I wouldn't have used it I 100% would have had a leak in my PC.That scares the crap outta me bc I’m not the type of person to check for pressure drop before slapping it in and setting and forgetting... do ya’ll have insurance for your rigs? ?
If you check my build log you can see how I’ve route the TPV! They are a bit harder, but because of the ticker walls, you can not worry about the kink and coolant evaporation. They have the same principle of the EKWB ZMT tubes.That EK leak tester is amazing! Just used it yesterday. Saved my build for sure.
I'm am not sure how you are using the TPV in the T1. I used it in a Sliger sm580 and that stuff it so rigid but maybe they all are? It was my first time water cooling so idk.
Do you think the eisstation dc-lt 80 would fit in the T1? I'm doubting it but the reservoir made filling the loop pretty easy.
facing down with the case flipped only? I currently have it sideways. most likely not ideal but like you said with the way the holes are placed it's and odd mount so i went with it in a horizontal orientation for now. maybe with more experience I could fix it.If you check my build log you can see how I’ve route the TPV!

about the Eisstation 80, in dimensions it fits, but how do you want to place it? Because for me was not ideal, because on top it doesn’t have a port, so flipping 180 degree the case to have the radiator on top will cause to have the reservoir top facing down...
But maybe you can find a solution!
