Mounting the kit
By: Sverre Sjøthun, March 16, 2002  Print this article

Like always, I mounted the kit outside the computer for bleeding and testing for leaks. The assembly took me about 10 minutes. The pump had run for about 5 minutes when I noticed a leak around the pump outlet. I powered off the pump, and noticed there were no rubber seals or anything that could prevent leakage, so I took one of the o-rings from an Eheim 1046 I had laying around and this worked perfectly. Quite surprised by this, I send an email to Swiftech asking for a comment and possible solution to this.

The answer I got was that they use Teflon tape to secure the kits from leaking, but this kit did not contain Teflon tape at all. From what I understand, they will now start using o-rings instead of the Teflon tape, even though the Teflon is a well known way of sealing off joints.

Installing this kit inside the computer is quite time consuming. I spent about 1 hour mounting it, and that is without the modification you have to do in a permanent installation. My best guess is that you can fully mount the kit in 2 to 3 hours including making blowholes for the fans that goes on the radiator and holes for the hoses if you put the radiator outside your case.

The good thing is that the kit comes with a very detailed user manual. There are many nuts and bolts – each platform have their own accessories and you must make sure to use the correct bolts, hex nuts, washers and so on. But when you have finally mounted this kit, I think this has to be one of the most secure kits made. I can’t possibly see a hose or joint leak, nor the waterblock come off during transportation.
