    Sometimes overnight, sometimes pdq!:D I keep a lot of paper towels handy. I once lost a video card because I didn't see a leak.:cry:

    I usually do it for an hour, then watch it closely while I overclock and test. I use automotive fuel injector clamps. They rarely leak.

    Water?

    Use compression fittings with thread lock and coat the ends with rubber cement or something similar just in case you get a minor crack where it comes together.

    I also use some glue around all the seams on everything else as well, never had a leak.

    Depends on how much beer I have had, could take awhile...:laugh:

    Just use 7/16 tubing on 1/2 " barbs and I just usually dive straight in after testing that all the pumps are working...never had a leak that would cause damage.

    Only time that I had a leak was from improperly fitted barbs.

    If you don't have a leak within an hour of testing more than likely you won't have one, unless you move hoses or fittings around alot when putting everything back together....:)

    Another note on water cooling being most people don't use pressure relief valves :p

    I let it get really good and hot *even if that means slowing down or unplugging fans, and remove the cap off my res to let the the pressure balance then put it back on and let it cool down, probably not "required" but I have seen as the coolant heats up pressure increases and I have seen seams on res. and pumps and such blow out... Rare but I have seen it.

    The Chimp Challenge you ask?

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    0 Rank Total Points Last 24hrs. Est. Time

    Though that's going to update in about 40 minutes, and I suspect we'll have passed 20 million. We've worked hard this past month, and we pushed the limits of their hardware. We've surged forward and will end up having folded an additional 5 million over the month prior, a true testament to the hard work everyone poured in. Great work everyone!

    Congratulations to the members who snagged milestones, from new members claiming their first milestone, to a team millionaire smashing down doors. Also, congrats to Taz who should know have access to the folding badge on the forums here.

    Again, great work everyone.

    And congrats to TPU for completing the Chimp Challenge, which happened just hours after my post. Very nice work guys.

    TPU finished in the Chimp Challenge having achieved the requirement in just under 26 days. The impact of the competition can be clearly seen in our monthly point total.

    [​IMG]

    Today we're a bit muted as we have a fair number of members returning the helping boost provided by the WCG team. Having said that, we're still tipping the scales at around 700k so we're still charging upwards. Great job guys.

    We have a flurry of activity coming with the milestone update. For starters, we see Chicken Patty snatch his first 10k along with Phoenix, while scud_svk and Jubdub both lay down their 25k milestones. DaMulta slaps at science with his 100k total, which of course will grant him forum Folding Badge ownership. Lastly, we have msgclb rocking the boat as he comes back online from the Chimp Challenge.

    OCAU is rounding the final bend in the Chimp Challenge, as they now stand just over a day away from completion. They've shown remarkable dedication to hold out to the end and deserve a hearty congrats.

    The weekend was packed with activity as we saw one of our new members surpass his 50k milestone. Phoenix now has another 50k to go before being able to access the forum folding badge. Meanwhile, dhoshaw, hertz9753 and bogmali all added a new million onto their prior total, each more daunting a total than the last. 6 million, 12 million and 30 million respectively earns each of these guys their mention and a bit of worship. :respect:

    I don't know where to start: 6, 12 or 30! Those are all impressive numbers dhoshaw, hertz9753 and bogmali.:toast:
    But phoenix that 50 is a great start and it looks like 1 million 100k is only a few days away.:toast: Congrats all.

    Coming out of the competition, we've posted a few days of 750k which is pretty good and also is a better figure than our HWC friends can manage. :nutkick:


    One thing that's readily apparent is how little fluctuation the line has seen over the past 3 days. This is most likely due to a lesser amount of bidadv clients running leaving us mainly with GPUs and SMP clients. I can't vouch for anyone else, but Crunching seems to be a fair deal more stable on my i7s. The added requirement of the virtual machine is likely to blame, but aside from that the program really is wonderfully ease to use. I'll overlook ease of use, as I simply hope Stanford will have worked out the issue with the bigadv A3 units by the time I return my processors to F@H.

    As of this post, Overclockers Australia is 7.2 hours from completing the Chimp Challenge.

    A flurry of fresh names and returning veterans are shown tonight, notably PVTCaboose as he claims his 100k milestone which allows him to show his F@H badge on the bottom of his posts now. Congrats to PVTCaboose, and a hearty cheer out to all the new members who are raking in their first points with zeal.

    First I want to add congrats to all the new members. There are no milestones too small to celebrate.

    Second, I find on my dual core machines that CPU crunching robs me of far fewer GPU PPD than does CPU folding. I just let those machines crunch away. BIGADV folding is still kinda rocky. I've had no trouble sending results, or receiving new WU's lately, although I don't think I've received my bonus from my last -bigadv job. It is definitely better now the Chimp Challenge is (almost) over.

    Meanwhile, I gather my pennies to further my quest for Total World Folding Domination. (OK, OK. I'm delusional. Humor me.)

    6.6 hours until we pass Engadget. :cool:

    Oh, and 5 days ago mmaakk tossed in 3052 points for the first time in months. Hopefully all is well down in Brazil and he stops in sometime soon. I'd even use MS Paint to edit his name in place of Buck's or Bogi's.

    While no names strike any specific milestones, we do see some impressive numbers. Phoenix for instance is really taking off and pushing his PPD hard for the milestones, and PowderedSugar continues along, an unyielding folding force who is sneaking up on his 2 millionth milestone. Nice show of force guys.

    I knew there had to be a reason I made the list...it was just a fluke:roll:

    Neat to see it, but I'm cool with the current PPD, it was just weird to see my name on it without asking for an edit.

    With over 13,000 ppd two days in a row, it looks like you're trying to stay on it.:toast:

    Congrats to everyone in Chicago. Sorry for the delay, as it is I'm dodging a deadline to post this up. :laugh:

    865,765 today! Looks like someone found a little extra oomph kicking about. I'm not going to name any names, but someone who rhymes with dogmali posted 220k alone and may have played a part in it. Very nice sir.

    Oh and Sneeky, if you ever did want pie nightly, you'd only need another 5k on your current output to reach it. [​IMG] :D

    Yesterday's milestones feature a processed food item running away with the show. Chicken Patty, arguably one of the masters of all things distributively computed around TPU here, has posted up his 25k milestone. Also, I just discovered that distributively is a word and that I spelled it correctly. Joining him in the list are many members clawing their way upward, with a few ready to strike blows on unsuspecting milestones. Congrats and confectionaries to all!
