I got a d-tek fusion v2 and i got both mounts
You should contact the place you purchased it from. You should have received both mounts. Or you can contact D-tek themselves
I got a strange question of sorts... I got the Primochill Liquid Utopia - Steel Blue dye a few days ago.. And well, I only ordered 1 and it is all ready gone... My question is this... If I grabbed the Utopia UV Blue, would it hurt it due to me having the Steel Blue in it? On the same lines... If I went with the Feser View UV Blue, would it do anything harmful?
The only reason I even ask is that when I was looking at getting the 50ml Feser UV, it says "Do not mix different colour Feser One coolants together: Chemical reactions can occur".
Going to throw a order in Thursday on some more of that and a longer Uv sata cable for my Dvd burner..
I've heard of GUNK being created in between the pins of blocks by using the Feser dyes. Your best bet is getting some Feser UV hose and using plain 'ol distilled water and some PT Nuke. UV tubes won't get clouded from the PT Nuke either.
Yeah, I have half of my system done in Blue uv tubing... When I was doing my loop, I couldn't find 1/2 to 3/8 barb.. They weren't in stock at Jab-tech, and No Home Depot or Lowes in a 20 miles area of my parents house in West Palm had something for it... So, I have two different things... I should go a buy the rest of it and just go all 3/8... I probably can find what I need now..
i changed my water when i added the second pump.. how important is pt nuke? if i dont add it when will it start to build algey? and my mobo is going to be shipped out in about 2 weeks is it ok to leave the water in the system for a couple months or should i run through it clean water and "clean it out"
Copper really is an algae inhibitor, though I put a half a cap of alcohol in just to be sure.
how bad would it be if i were to idk run filtered tap water?
and does anyone have a tline they want to give away i'm trying to kill some vga cards....
I just use PT Nuke to be safe. If you order from PTS, you can add PT Nuke for like $2. I think it's copper sulfide or something like that anyway, so yeah copper is the algae inhibitor.
yea i have some pt nuke @ freaksaviors house....
I decided to rip my D-Tek FuZion to bits last night to see how it worked - well, ill upload the pictures as soon as i get home but my god.
Anyone got any decent tips for clearing out a block that has 3/4 of the pins smothered in gunk? I assume i can drop it in hot tap water and let the gunky shit melt out?
im hoping hot water, say, from a kettle wont damage the copper in any way?
It's just copper. Take a thin paper clip and unroll it and use that between all the pins to scrape the crap off.
And quit using crummy coolant
And yeah the Fuzions are pretty cool, huh? If you think they work cool, the EK Supremes are even more complicated.
BTW: If you ever tarnish the copper on the bottom of a block or heatsink (from fingerprints and whatnot) take lemon juice, and a few small sprinkles of salt, and just rub it with your finger. The acidity of the lemon combined with the slight corrosiveness of the salt takes it right off. Then rinse with water and pat it dry. Gotta give the props to fit, though
oh no it came like that, I havent even got all my WC parts delivered yet haha.
Can i put it in hot water to clean any excess the paperclip misses?
Sure. What I did was I did the paperclip deal, then I used an air compressor to blow it all out once I got it loosened up. Worked quite well. If you don't have one, there's always those cans of compressed air.
And yeah the first Fuzion I got had gunkies all over :shadedshu
I used ketchup on my fuzion when I got the base all print covered...
then washed it off in meths LOL
before (Turns out the gunk was like gelled coolant / tissue cotten like stuff, had a nightmare cleaning it. Used a super soft toothbrush in the end, worked a damn treat )
And after a through cleaning + a vinegar bath for 30 minutes:
Now my FuZion is clean (did a full block clean, barbs, o-rings and all) and my tubing / coolant and a few other odd bits are on their way, my new loop should be running by the weekend
that's the result I got in ten minutes of toothbrush + ketchup + final meth wash to get rid of greasiness
and now I've got Fitty's clear top on it, and it looks sexy as hell.
just put together a simple loop for some AGP video cards
BIX 120->tline->D4->swifty MCW60->rad again
going to test it out tonight
Moved over to this forum last month and I completed my loop at the sametime. Very informative post for anyone new to this. And that PCI molex bracket thats a savior just ordered it.
-Swiftech 220mm Rad
-Themaltake Aquabay M5
-Then a few feet of 3/8" UV Green tubing
Here's a shot of how it looks
And the water block
Got another pic of my whole setup on link in sig. This is my first WC loop and getting hte comp ready for a Phenom II 940, so far really happy with it!
be careful with that block copper+alum=bad
I'm pretty sure anything the waters running through is copper, I know the bottom of it is all copper.
my vga murder loop
5/8->1/2 adapter since the only tline at autozone was a 5/8ths
120mm BIX rad
your block is a copper bottom with an alum top
Cdawall, got enough color in the ties!? Looks good man!
its not a permanent set up so its the $.99 bag of ties lol and that tubing is crap NEVER buy the $.28 tubing from lowes lol kinks off the roll
